Aerospace Sheets Market: Highlights

High-performance industries like aerospace generate massive demand for an extravagant range of materials. Sheet is one of the many mill products used in the aerospace industry for a wide range of applications such as fuselage and pressure cabin skin. The key differences between sheet and plate lie in their thickness, rigidity, and strength. Plates are thicker, more rigid, and stronger as compared to sheets.

The aerospace industry continually remains at the forefront in terms of huge revenue generation, being one of the key pillars for uplifting the global economy. The past couple of years have proved to be a bumpy road for the industry, starting with the grounding of the best-selling, B737 MAX’s grounding (2019), followed by the COVID-19 pandemic (2020). The aerospace industry was one of the worst-hit, experiencing acute supply chain disruption, sudden production halts, deferring orders, etc. resulting in never seen before losses and rattled industry fundamentals.

The sheets market for the industry was no exception to the pandemic’s wrath, mirrored the industry’s downhill path in 2020 with a slump of -28.6% (YoY) – a stark contrast to our pre-COVID estimates that reflected a healthy recovery from the B737 MAX’s hiccup in 2020 (aligning with the industry’s movement at the time).

The extremely resilient nature of the industry stakeholders is likely to insinuate a healthy long-term recuperation. The lift of Boeing’s B737 MAX in October 2020, gradual opening of travel restrictions, rebounding aircraft deliveries, and Airbus’ announcement of a gradual ramp-up in the production of their best-selling aircraft programs are among the self-evident signs of recovery. This is also expected to imprint a positive impact on the aerospace sheets market, estimating to bounce back at a promising CAGR of 8.0% to reach US$ 2.3 billion in 2026.

Based on the platform type, commercial aircraft is projected to remain the largest and the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period, despite a massive plunge in the production of commercial aircraft in 2020. Rapidly recovering the production of aircraft, probable market entry of new aircraft such as C919 sooner rather than later, and an incessant requirement of mill products, are the key reasons behind the segment’s healthy growth in the long run.

Based on the material type, the Aluminum & alloys segment captured the lion’s share in 2020, whereas titanium & alloys are expected to grow at the highest rate during 2021-2026. Titanium offers a remarkable weight advantage for aerospace structures as its density is 40% lesser than that of steel- or nickel-based alloys. The material brings a range of advantages to the table including tensile strength better than that of austenitic or ferritic stainless steels, extraordinary stiffness and toughness, and a high melting point.

In terms of regions, North America is expected to hold the throne in the aerospace sheets market during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market with the presence of major aircraft OEMs, tier players, raw material suppliers, and part fabricators. Most of the sheet suppliers have their presence in the region to address OEMs' emergent needs and be the partner for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs.

Asia-Pacific is likely to rebound at the fastest rate during the same period. The region's highest growth is mainly attributable to the increasing aircraft fleet to support rising passenger traffic; opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus for multiple aircraft programs; increasing procurement of military aircraft, owing to rising defense budget; and upcoming indigenous aircraft, C919. China. Japan, Malaysia, and India are likely to remain the major markets in the region.
