    Impact of COVID-19 on Metal Bellows Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Market Insights

    Metal bellows are a type of flexible seals used in pipe joints. These bellows help in mitigating movement caused by thermal fluctuation, equipment movement, and vibration or pressure pulsation by converting movement into linear or rotational motion in any piping system. They also reduce the chances of leakage of any fluid or pressure in pipe joints. The performance of bellows depends on several factors including the type of raw material used and its properties, design factor, manufacturing process, etc. Metal bellows are used in diverse applications ranging from aerospace & defense to pharmaceutical, industrial automation, semiconductor manufacturing, solar power generation, water & wastewater treatment plant, and oil & gas industries.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The demand for metal bellows is highly subjected to the health of the major markets/industries where these bellows are used. Aerospace & defense and automotive, the two largest markets for metal bellows, were already under immense pressure and were struggling hard to rebound their demand. Several industry-specific regional factors were behind the truncated industry growth or decline. The outbreak of COVID-19 further exacerbated their challenges to an unprecedented level.

    For instance, in 2019, the grounding of B737 Max; delays in the entries of upcoming aircraft programs such as B777X; and revised production rates of key aircraft programs; negatively impacted the entire supply chain including the demand for metal bellows, especially in the North American market. The industry challenges further deepened with the outbreak of the pandemic because of that there was a massive blow in the deliveries of commercial aircraft.

    The impact of such trends was quite visible on the sales of metal bellows in those industries. Overall, the metal bellows market witnessed a massive double-digit decline in 2020, creating a lag of 4 to 5 years. The market is expected to witness a strong come-back from 2021 onwards, followed by sequential growth in succeeding years, helping the industry stakeholders to reach the landmark figure of US$ 1.0 billion by 2026.

    Segments' Analysis

    Metal Bellows Market Share by Material Type

    The metal bellows market is segmented based on the material type as titanium alloys, stainless steel alloys, nickel alloys, and others. Titanium alloys are likely to remain the most dominant material type and are likely to witness the highest growth over the next five years. Growing composites content in the aerospace industry supported by excellent compatibility of titanium with composites, increasing penetration of lightweight materials, growing usage of titanium alloys in the high-end cars to reduce weight and to gain high strength, and desirable properties of titanium concerning corrosion resistance and thermal expansion are some of the factors behind the superior growth of titanium alloys in the market.

    Metal Bellows Market Share by Product Type

    Based on the product type, the market is segmented as edge-welded bellows, mechanically formed bellows, electroformed bellows, and others. Edge-welded bellow is likely to remain the most dominant product type and is likely to register an excellent CAGR during the forecast period, whereas mechanically formed bellow is likely to remain the second-largest product type over the same period. Edge-welded bellows are preferred for high-temperature applications, such as aircraft engines, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, oil & gas instruments, and medical device.

    Metal Bellows Market Share by End-use Industry

    Based on the end-use industry, the market is segmented as aerospace & defense, automotive, oil & gas, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and others. Aerospace & defense is likely to remain the most dominant segment over the next five years. Despite a collapse in commercial aircraft deliveries in 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19, the long-term scenario seems fruitful backed by strong industry fundamentals. Furthermore, the returning in service of B737Max, entry of new programs (C919, B777x, and MC-21), and an expected recovery in the production rates of A320 and B737 programs in the commercial aerospace business assure a speedy recovery.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is projected to remain the largest and fastest-growing market for metal bellows during the forecast period. China and Japan are the major markets of the region. North America and Europe are also projected to generate a sizeable demand for metal bellows during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the North American metal bellows market. The country is the hub for the aerospace industry with the presence of several aircraft OEMs, metal bellow suppliers, and raw material suppliers. Similarly, Germany, France, the UK, and Russia are the major markets in Europe.
