Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.
Metal bellows are thin-walled cylindrical components used to mitigate vibration in the piping system when a media needs to be transported under pressure, where sealing a high vacuum is critical. The surface structure of metal bellows is in a corrugated form that offers flexibility during axial, lateral, and angular deformation. The 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. These bellows are used in a wide range of temperatures and pressure.
The performance of bellows depends on several factors including the type of raw material used, its properties, design factor, manufacturing process, etc. They are used in a wide range of industries including aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, etc. among all the end-use industries, the aerospace industry is the biggest demand generator of metal bellows, alone capturing a 28% share of the market (value basis) in 2020.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Metal Bellows Market
The A&D metal bellows market grew continuously in the last decade till 2018. The year 2019 proved to be challenging for the industry, especially for commercial aerospace. Grounding of B737 Max, P&W 1100G engine series failure (A320neo), delayed deliveries 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 region. In 2020, the market witnessed a massive double-digit decline in the wake of the pandemic. Although there have been signs of recovery, the market is still expected to witness a decline in 2021, followed by a bounce-back in 2022 and sequential growth in succeeding years to reach an estimated US$ 284.1 million in 2026.

Stratview Research has firstly segmented the A&D Metal Bellows market based on the material type as titanium alloys, stainless steel alloys, nickel alloys, and others. Titanium alloy-based metal bellow is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing market over the next five years. Rising demand for lightweight construction, high-strength material, and good media compatibility drive the demand for titanium in the A&D industry. It is estimated that there would be a further increase in the penetration of titanium in the crucial sections (including metal bellows) of the latest aircraft programs.
Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Metal Bellows Market Share by Joint Type
The market is segmented as gimbal joints, angular joints, universal joints, and others based on the joint type. Gimbal joint is expected to remain the largest segment of the market over the next five years. Key applications are pneumatic and fuel duct articulation, engine bleed air, ECS duct, and APU duct systems. Key driving factors of gimbal joints are that they provide strict control over the movement on bellows and have compatibility with the weight of the pipe.
Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Metal Bellows Market Share by Platform Type
Based on the platform type, the market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, military aircraft, and UAV. Commercial aircraft is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market and is also expected to experience the fastest recovery during the forecast period. Return in service of B737Max, entry of new programs (C919, B777x, and MC-21), and expected recovery in the production rate of the key aircraft programs (A320neo) to drive the metal bellows market in the years to come.
Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Metal Bellows Market Share by Application Type
Based on the application type, the market is segmented as airframe, engine, and others. The airframe is estimated to remain the most dominant application in the coming years. The engine also accounts for a reasonable share of the market. Key application areas of the engine are bleed air ducts, drain systems, firewall seals, nacelle seals, and duct seals. Major material types used in engine applications are high-temperature titanium alloys, CRES, and nickel alloys.
North America is expected to remain the largest market over the next five years in terms of regions. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market.
