The Global Aircraft Brackets Market: Highlights
The global aircraft brackets market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 253.4 million in 2024. Increasing global commercial and regional aircraft deliveries, increasing the share of wide-body aircraft in the total commercial aircraft deliveries, rising commercial aircraft fleet size, increasing demand for lightweight brackets, and increasing demand for 3D-printed brackets are the major factors that are burgeoning the demand for brackets in the aircraft industry. North America and Europe are the biggest demand generators with a combined share of more than two-thirds of the total aircraft brackets market.
Brackets are essentially supported structures that are used to attach two different components while supporting one over the other. In an aircraft, these brackets are used on a wide range of applications, such as landing gears, fuselage airframe assembly, wings assembly, engine mounts, fuel tanks, and electrical wire installations. The aircraft brackets are of three types: Class A, Class B, and Class C, which are attached according to the application structure. For example, class A brackets are usually attached with the primary structures of the aircraft, whereas class B brackets are a kind of removable structure, and class C brackets are attached with the tertiary structures, such as hoses and air conditioning ducts. These brackets basically strengthen the joints of two different parts one over another.
Based on the aircraft type, the market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, military aircraft, and helicopter. Commercial aircraft is likely to remain the most dominant and fastest-growing segment of the global aircraft brackets market during the forecast period. Increasing production rates of key programs, such as B737 and A320 family, to support rising passenger traffic; market entry of new players, such as COMAC; and the introduction of the fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs, such as B737 max, A320neo, are the major factors driving the demand for brackets in the commercial aircraft segment.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented into fuselage, wings, control surfaces, and others. The fuselage is likely to remain the most dominant segment of the aircraft brackets market during the forecast period. The fuselage is the biggest application in an aircraft and requires brackets in large quantities. For instance, there are several components and parts, such as airframe assembly, where brackets are used. Control surfaces are likely to be the fastest growing application segment during the same period.
Based on the bracket type, the market is segmented into class A, class B, and class C. Class B brackets are likely to remain the most dominant and fastest growing segment of the global aircraft brackets market during the forecast period. Class B brackets are removable and can be attached to class A brackets or directly to the structure. Further, there is also a huge demand for class B brackets at the aftermarket level, owing to the fact that they are replaced during periodic maintenance of aircraft in case of any damage.
Based on the material type, the market is segmented into aluminum, steel, and others. Aluminum brackets are likely to remain the most dominant segment of the global aircraft brackets market during the forecast period, driven by its high compatibility with aluminum parts, its non-ferrous properties, excellent strength-to-weight ratio, and high conductivity. Other materials which basically include composites and metal-alloys are also expected to witness healthy growth rates over the next five years, owing to increasing penetration of composite materials in the aerospace industry and a growing acceptance of 3D printed brackets.
Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented into OE and aftermarket. OE sales are likely to remain the most dominant segment of the global aircraft brackets market during the forecast period, driven by increased production of commercial aircraft to meet rising passenger traffic across the globe. Aftermarket sales are expected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, owing to an increasing upgrade of existing aircraft fleet and periodic maintenance of active aircraft.
In terms of regions, North America is projected to remain the largest market for aircraft brackets during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market and has one of the largest fleets of commercial and military aircraft across the world. Presence of major OEMs, tire players, bracket manufacturers, and raw material suppliers are primarily driving the demand for brackets in the country.
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the global aircraft brackets market during the same period, owing to an increasing presence of major aircraft OEMs in the region, market entry of new players, such as COMAC to mitigate the level of dependency on Boeing and Airbus, and increasing commercial aircraft fleet size to meet rising passenger traffic.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, bracket manufacturers, tier players, aircraft OEMs, airline companies, leasing companies, and MRO companies. The key aircraft bracket manufacturing companies are Triumph Group Inc., Arconic Inc., Premium Aerotec, Precision Castparts Corp., Tri-Mack Plastics Manufacturing Corporation, AIM Aerospace Inc., Daher Socata SAS, Denroy Plastics Ltd., Spirit Aerosystems Inc., and Stroco Manufacturing Inc. The new product development and formation of long-term supply agreements are some of the most common strategies adopted by the major players in order to remain competitive in the market.
