    Market Insights

    Blind fasteners are the most talked about subject among the family of fasteners deployed in aircraft manufacturing/assembly. Blind fasteners are preferably used where the design of the structure or assembly sequence does not grant access from both sides. These fasteners have been gaining a fair share in the overall aircraft fasteners market, owing to the changing preferences of OEMs from permanent fasteners to blind fasteners. Blind fasteners are gradually replacing traditional fasteners because of rapid automation, which is of paramount importance as it reduces the lead time of aircraft assembly.

    The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the aircraft blind fastener market. It caused a sharp decline in air travel, which in turn led to a decline in the demand for new aircraft. This had a knock-on effect on the demand for aircraft blind fasteners, as these are primarily used in the manufacturing of new aircraft. Moreover, supply chain disruptions made it difficult for manufacturers to obtain the raw materials needed to produce blind fasteners. As a result, the market witnessed consecutive declines of double digits in 2020 and 2021.

    Despite facing setbacks during the pandemic, the market started to recover with a double-digit growth rate in 2022 with the help of the revocation of air travel restrictions. An increase in air passenger traffic, increasing production rates of the key aircraft programs, such as the A320neo, B737 Max, A220, B787, and A350XWB, emerging aircraft OEMs, which include COMAC and Irkut, rising global aircraft fleet size, increasing preference for blind fasteners for assembling critical aerospace parts, and superior benefits of blind fasteners, including ease of installation over the permanent fasteners are giving impetus to the growth of blind fasteners in the aircraft industry. Overall, the aircraft blind fasteners market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 8.7%, in the long run, to reach US$ 628 Million in 2028.
