    What is Aircraft Plastic Fastener?

    Aircraft plastic fastener is a type of temporary joining tool which is used to integrate various aircraft parts. About a million fastener is used in a large aircraft for different applications such as wings, engines, interiors, avionics, and assemblies. Plastic fasteners, now-a-days, qualify several standards to fulfil an aircraft’s requirements with additional features such as lightweight, greater tensile strength, corrosion & high-temperature resistance, rigidity, and excellent shear & fatigue strength.

    Market Dynamics

    The aircraft plastic fasteners market is quite aligned with the organic growth of the aircraft industry. The expected recovery in air passenger travel coupled with huge order backlogs of aircraft OEMs and retrofitting plans of older aircraft is likely to boost the demand for plastic fasteners from 2022 onwards. 

    Covid-19 Impact

    Due to the sudden outbreak of the pandemic, there was an enormous decline in the aircraft industry across regions. The grave impact of this was registered across the supply chain including all the level of components. Aircraft plastic fasteners, a relatively small but unique market, also could not escape from such trends and witnessed a colossal decline (-41%+ in 2020) amid the pandemic, quite paralleling with the decline in the aircraft industry. The industry was expecting to commence its recovery in 2021, however, due to temporary suspension of B787 deliveries and the postponement of refurbishment orders by several airlines led the industry to suffer a drastic decline again in 2021.

    Segments Analysis


    List of Sub-Segments

    Dominant and Fastest-Growing Segments

    Aircraft Type

    Commercial Aircraft, Regional Aircraft, Helicopters, Military Aircraft, and General Aviation.

    With the expected recovery from the pandemic, Commercial Aircraft is estimated to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing aircraft type till 2028.

    Material Type

    Composites, High-Performance Thermoplastics, Nylon, and Others (Silicone).

    Nylon is likely to remain dominant, whereas composites will be the fastest-growing material type in the market over the next five years.

    Product Type

    Plastic Clamps, Panel Fasteners, Bonded Fasteners, and Others (Insulation Blanket Fasteners, Spacers, Etc.)

    Panel Fasteners are to be dominant, whereas bonded fasteners are to be the fastest-growing segment till 2028.

    Region Type

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World

    North America is likely to maintain its supremacy in the market, whereas Asia-Pacific is to be the fastest-growing region over the next five years.

    By Aircraft Type

    The aircraft plastic fasteners market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopter, military aircraft, and general aviation. With the highest share of plastic fasteners, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing aircraft type in the market during the forecast period. An expected recovery in air travel is pushing airframers to increase the production rate of key programs by both aircraft giants: Boeing and Airbus. As per the latest Airbus commercial aircraft outlook for 2022-2041, in the next twenty years, 39,490 commercial aircraft are likely to be delivered out of which 80% would be narrow-body aircraft only.

    By Material Type

    The market is segmented into composites, high-performance thermoplastics, nylon, and others. Nylon is expected to remain the dominant material type whereas composites are expected to be the fastest-growing material type in the market during the same period. Nylon exhibits several features such as high-tensile strength, electrical insulation, and corrosion resistance, and are strong, lightweight, and versatile. Nylon fasteners are offered by several major players such as Step’n Components, HellermannTyton, and Amphenol with different grades as it is the most suited material for fasteners.

    By Product Type

    The market is segmented into plastic clamps, panel fasteners, bonded fasteners, and others. Panel fasteners are expected to maintain their dominance, whereas bonded fasteners are expected to be the fastest-growing product type in the market during the forecast period. Panel fasteners are majorly used in honeycomb sandwich structures which are installed for larger areas, such as floor, walls, and ceiling panels. Bonded fasteners are generally bonded with high-performance adhesives (like epoxy) to eliminate the need to mechanically drill the holes for their insertion and provide clean fittings.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft plastic fasteners during the forecast period. The region has the presence of a large number of major OEMs, such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and Lockheed Martin, as well as tier players, and raw material suppliers; making the region the growth engine of the aircraft industry. The majority of aircraft plastic fastener manufacturers are having presence in the region to meet OEMs' urgent needs and serve as a partner and establish new contracts for early Covid-19 recovery.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to grow at the fastest pace in the market over the next five years, driven by an expected rebound in aircraft deliveries to meet the rising air passenger travel, especially in emerging economies: China and India; healthy growth of low-cost carriers by private airlines for the affordable journey, upcoming aircraft program, C919 and expected to return of B737max in China.
