    Aircraft Seals Market Insights

    The growth of the aircraft seals market will continue to be resilient with attractive opportunities for the market participants situated across the value chain. Undoubtedly, aircraft is one of the fastest-growing applications in the overall seals market; however, it is not that easy for seal manufacturers to serve the aircraft industry as it demands players to be exceptionally innovative with excellent product development capabilities and having years of excellent track record. Also, it is of paramount importance for seal manufacturers to remain proximal to tier players as well as aircraft OEMs in order to address their emergent needs. 

    As per Stratview Research, the market for seals in the aircraft industry is estimated to reach US$ 1,107.2 million in 2024. Several factors are bolstering the demand for seals in the aircraft industry. Among all, the key growth factors are increasing production rates of the key aircraft programs, such as B737, B787, A320, and A350XWB; introduction of the fuel-efficient aircraft variants, such as B777x and A330neo; increasing demand for lightweight aircraft seals; and rising global aircraft fleet size.

    Major seal manufacturers serving the aircraft industry have been reinforcing their share by performing both organic as well as inorganic growth strategies. For instance; TransDigm Group Incorporated acquired Kirkhill Engineered Elastomer Business of Esterline Corporation for a total purchase price of US$ 50 million.

     

    Aircraft Seals Market Share Analysis

    Aircraft Seals Market Share by Aircraft Type

    The market is segmented based on the aircraft type as Commercial Aircraft, Regional Aircraft, Helicopter, Military Aircraft, and General Aviation. Commercial aircraft is expected to remain the growth engine of the aircraft seals market during the forecast period of 2019 to 2024. Increasing commercial aircraft deliveries to support rising passenger traffic, the introduction of fuel-efficient next-generation aircraft (B777x, A330neo, B737 Max, and A320ne0), increasing demand for lightweight seals, and rising commercial aircraft fleet size across regions are the key factors propelling the demand for seals in the segment.

    Boeing anticipated that there would be total deliveries of 40,410 commercial aircraft worth US$ 6.25 trillion in the global marketplace during 2018-2037. Asia-Pacific and Europe would be the biggest demand generators with a combined share of 64.7% of the total commercial aircraft deliveries during 2018-2037. An expected healthy CAGR of 4.7% in air passenger traffic during 2018-2037 will chiefly drive the demand for commercial aircraft. This factor will create sustainable demand for aircraft seals globally in the foreseeable future.

    In addition to that, Boeing and Airbus had a combined total order backlog of 13,048 commercial aircraft by the end of 2018. These huge pile of order backlogs of commercial aircraft will allow both airframers to roll out their aircraft continuously for the next eight to ten years at current build rates. To cope with such huge order backlogs, they have strategically been raising the production rates of their key commercial aircraft programs in order to deliver aircraft to their widespread clients at a shorter period of time. Also, they have been introducing the fuel-efficient variants of their best-selling aircraft programs with the purpose to address the biggest requirement of the airline industry, which is the fuel-efficient aircraft. This factor will further assure sustainable demand for aircraft seals in the foreseeable future.

    Aircraft Seals Market Share by Application Type

    Based on the application type, the aircraft seals market is segmented as Engine, Airframe, Interior, Flight Control Surfaces, Landing Gear, Wheels & Brakes, and Hydraulics and Actuation. Engine System is expected to remain the most dominant application segment of the market during the forecast period. Seals are used in a wide spectrum of engine applications including engine and pylon seals, thrust reverser seals, bleed air seals, fire seals, air inlet screens, vane grommets elastomeric gaskets, shaft seals, and O-rings.

    Aircraft Seals Market Share by Material Type

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented as Polymer Seals, Composite Seals, and Metal Seals. The polymer seal is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period, whereas composite seal is expected to witness the highest growth during the same period. There has been an incessant replacement of metal seals with composite seals, owing to their excellent strength-to-weight ratio at a relatively low weight.

    Regional Insights

    Based on the region, North America is expected to remain the largest aircraft seals market during the forecast period, whereas Asia-Pacific is expected to experience the highest growth during the same period. The highest growth of aircraft seals in Asia-Pacific is mainly attributable to the increasing aircraft fleet to support rising passenger traffic; opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus for the B737, A320, and A330 aircraft programs; increasing procurement of military aircraft, owing to rising defense budget; and upcoming indigenous commercial and regional aircraft (C919 and MRJ). China, Japan, and India will be the growth engines of the region’s market in coming years.
