The research report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
Aeroengine Fan Blades Market: Highlights
Fan blades are among the most important components of an aircraft engine. There has been an evolutionary change in the design, size, structure, material, and manufacturing process of fan blades over the past few decades. Curved, lighter, thinner, and fewer are the four big needs in aeroengine fan blades observed in the industry. Composites have gradually been becoming the material of choice for achieving these four industry needs. Besides thinner and fewer in numbers, composite fan blades also spin faster that ultimately helps to generate higher thrust and by-pass ratio.
As per Stratview Research, the global aeroengine fan blades market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 8,059.8 million in 2023. Organic growth of the aircraft industry, increasing share of wide-body aircraft in commercial aircraft deliveries, increasing penetration of composite fan blades in newer aircraft engines, increasing fan diameters of newer aircraft, and an expected increase in production of LEAP engines, are the key growth drivers of aeroengine fan blades market.
Research findings suggest that narrow- and wide-body aircraft are likely to remain growth engines of the market during the forecast period. Increasing production rates of key programs, such as B737, A320 family, B787, and A350XWB; market entry of new players, such as COMAC and Irkut; introduction of variants of existing best-selling aircraft programs, such as B737 max, A320neo, and B777x; and increasing demand for lightweight composite fan blades are likely to offer a sustainable growth platform for fan blades in these segments in the coming years.
Based on the engine type, turbofan aeroengine fan blades are likely to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Turbofan engines are the most commonly used engine type in the commercial aircraft, which is the major reason behind their dominance in the market. Increasing production of turbofan engines to support the increasing commercial aircraft production rates, as well as increasing penetration of lightweight composite fan blades, are substantiating the demand for fan blades in the engine segment.
Titanium blades are likely to remain the most dominant material type in the market during the forecast period, whereas composite blades are likely to experience the highest growth in the same period, driven by their usage in newer variants of engines, such as LEAP engines, which are empowering the world’s best-selling model’s fuel-efficient variants (B737 max and A320neo) and GEnx engine empowering B787. Aeroengine fan blades have been undergoing a disruptive transformation from traditional metallic blades to composite blades. Epoxy resin with carbon fiber is the predominantly used material type for manufacturing composite fan blades.
As per the study, North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period, driven by the world’s leading aeroengine manufacturers i.e. GE Aviation, CFM International, and Pratt & Whitney. Most of the major engine manufacturers have assembly plants in the region to support the major aircraft OEMs. However, Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth in the same period, driven by a host of factors including increasing demand for commercial aircraft to support rising passenger traffic, opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus for B737, A320, and A330 aircraft programs; upcoming indigenous commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ), and rising aircraft fleet size.
Major aeroengine fan blade manufacturers are Safran Aircraft Engines, GE Aviation, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, Albany/Safran, CFAN Company, and GKN Aerospace. Development of lightweight fan blades with ease of manufacturing processes; reduced operational cost, improved thrust or performance, and formation of strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
