The Global Aircraft Airframe Fuel Systems Market: Highlights
The coming five years for the airframe fuel systems market in the aircraft industry are going to be vigorous with a myriad of opportunities in the entire ecosystem of the market. Most of the players are developing innovative solutions in order to meet the keep changing requirements of aircraft OEMs and airlines. It is expected that the industry stakeholders will introduce more innovative solutions in the coming years with respect to enhance the overall aircraft’s fuel efficiency and to upsurge the reliability and veracity of fuel transmission from fuel tanks to engines.
Fuel systems play a vital role in the aircraft industry as they deliver, manage, and control the flow of fuel and its rate from fuel tanks, generally located at the wings or aircraft belly or both, to all engines. The global airline industry is fiercely competitive with the presence of more than 800 active airlines. All airlines, either low-cost carriers or premium airlines, are rigorously optimizing their operations. They are demanding more fuel-efficient aircraft to mitigate their operational cost as fuel roughly cost 30% of the airlines’ operational cost.
Aircraft manufacturers are increasingly incorporating advanced lightweight materials in both structural and semi-structural components to reduce the weight of the aircraft. Reduction in the weight of aircraft considerably improves the fuel efficiency. For instance, B787 and A350XWB, the two recently developed next-generation aircraft, constitute composite materials up to 53% of the total structural weight of the aircraft. Airframe fuel systems are also not untouched by such dynamics and experiencing a greater usage of advanced lightweight materials.
The global aircraft airframe fuel systems market is projected to reach an estimated value of US$ 4,743.1 million in 2023. There are a host of factors burgeoning the demand for airframe fuel systems in the aircraft industry. Among all the drivers, the biggest one is an organic growth of aircraft demand. Boeing anticipated that there would be total deliveries of 41,030 commercial aircraft worth US$ 6.1 trillion in the global marketplace during 2017-2036. Asia-Pacific and North America would be the biggest demand generators with a combined share of 60.2% of the total commercial aircraft deliveries during 2017-2036. This factor will create a sustainable demand for fuel systems globally in the foreseeable future.
Another major driver is an increased demand for unmanned aerial vehicles. All the major countries, especially the USA, have incessantly been shielding their defense by developing more UAVs to protect themselves in urgency. Mini-UAVs, HALE (High-Altitude Long Endurance), and TUAVs (Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) are likely to gain more shares in the coming years. North America is likely to remain the largest market over the next five years, whereas Asia-Pacific and Europe are likely to be the new growth engines of the segment’s market over the next five years.
The global aircraft airframe fuel systems market is segmented based on the aircraft type as Commercial Aircraft, Military Aircraft, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest segment of the aircraft airframe fuel systems market during the forecast period. Increasing commercial aircraft deliveries, a higher demand for fuel-efficient aircraft, and rising aircraft fleet size are key growth drivers of the market. A320 family, B737, B787, and A350XWB would remain the growth engines of the segment’s market in the foreseeable future. The UAV segment is also projected to witness the highest growth over the next five years, propelled by a rising demand for UAVs across regions.
North America is projected to remain the largest aircraft airframe fuel systems market during the forecast period, driven the USA. The region is the manufacturing capital of the aerospace industry with the presence of large- to small-sized aircraft manufacturers, MRO players, tier players, and raw material suppliers. The North American aerospace industry is well-developed and possesses significant technological capabilities.
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for aircraft airframe fuel systems during the same period, driven by high commercial aircraft fleet, indigenous production of commercial and regional aircraft, the opening of assembly plants in China by both major commercial aircraft OEMs (Boeing and Airbus), and increasing the defense budget. China and India are the key growth engines of the Asia-Pacific’s aircraft airframe fuel systems market.
Eaton Corporation Plc, Parker Hannifin Corporation, United Technologies Corporation, Triumph Group, Zodiac Aerospace., GKN Plc, Honeywell International, Inc. and Meggitt Plc are the key players in the aircraft airframe fuel Systems market. Formation of long-term contracts, the development of lightweight components, and collaboration with customers are the key strategies adopted by major players to gain a competitive edge in the market throughout the globe.
