    Market Insights

    A screw is an essential member of the fastener family that helps to hold two or more parts together to form part of a larger structure in the aircraft. Due to its versatility, it is the most common threaded fastener used in aircraft manufacturing. Screws used in the aircraft industry are of very high quality as compared to those used in general industries. They come in different types, materials, sizes, and head shapes depending on the purpose and strength required. Screws currently account for a sizeable share of the total aircraft fasteners market but are one of the fastest-growing fastener types in the industry.

    The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the aircraft screws market, as it did on the whole aviation industry. Low demand for new aircraft and the cancellation of aircraft orders by airlines due to reduced air travel compelled the aircraft manufacturers to cut down their production output. Due to the low demand for screws, the market witnessed consecutive declines of over 20% and 15% in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

    However, post-pandemic, the revocation of the air travel restrictions helped the market recover with a double-digit growth rate in 2022. Placement of a large number of aircraft orders fueled by an incessant increase in air passenger traffic, increasing production rates of the key aircraft programs, such as the A320neo, B737 Max, A220, B787, and A350XWB, rising global aircraft fleet size, and increasing demand for lightweight and corrosion-resistant screws are the major growth drivers for the market. Overall, the aircraft screws market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 6.6% in the long run to reach US$ 552.2 Million in 2028.

    By Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, the aircraft screws market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft, and general aviation. Commercial aircraft is expected to remain dominant as well as the fastest-growing aircraft type in the market during the forecast period. The dominance of the segment is led by the requirement for the most fasteners in the aircraft type, owing to its larger and more complex structure than other types of aircraft. The increasing production rate of key aircraft programs such as the B737 and A320, the entry of new aircraft manufacturers in the market, which includes COMAC and Irkut, and the rising fleet size of aircraft are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

    By Material Type

    Based on the material type, the aircraft screws market is segmented into titanium, steel, and other materials. Titanium is likely to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing material type in the aircraft screws market over the next five years, propelled by the increasing usage of titanium in the manufacturing of screws by replacing traditional steel and aluminum screws. Titanium offers a significant weight-saving advantage along with excellent corrosion resistance as compared to other competing materials.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the aircraft screws market is segmented into airframe, engine, flight control surfaces, interiors, and others. Airframe is projected to remain the biggest demand generator for screws in an aircraft during the forecast. The fuselage and wings cover a large surface area and have thousands of screws deployed in them, which makes the airframe the most dominant segment.

    By End-User Type

    Based on the end-user type, the market is bifurcated into OE and aftermarket sales. OE sales is likely to remain the larger as well as faster-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. A large number of screws are required during the production of aircraft. Increasing aircraft production would contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period.

    Regional Insights

    Based on the regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft screws during the forecast period as the region is the manufacturing capital of the aircraft industry with the presence of several large- to small-sized aircraft OEMs, tier players, screw manufacturers, and distributors. The USA is not only the largest market for aircraft screws in North America but also in the world. Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Bell Helicopter, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, and The Cessna Aircraft Company are some of the major OEMs in the USA, which generate a healthy demand for screws in the country.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to depict the highest growth during the same period owing to the growing demand for screws fueled by the establishment of new manufacturing sites of aircraft OEM and tier players in the region. China and India are the growth engines of the Asia-Pacific’s aircraft screws market. These economies keep on generating high demand for commercial aircraft to support the rising passenger traffic.
