“Increase in outsourcing of aerostructure manufacturing to tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers is one of the key factors expected to drive the growth of the market”
The aerostructures market is projected to grow from USD 52.17 billion in 2016 to USD 75.97 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.47% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the rise in aircraft deliveries in the commercial and general aviation sectors. In addition, outsourcing of aerostructure manufacturing by major OEMs to tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers is further anticipated to drive the growth of the aerostructures market. However, recyclability issues associated with composite materials are restraining the growth of the market.
“The empennage segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Based on component, the aerostructures market has been segmented into fuselage, empennage, flight control surfaces, wings, nose, and nacelle and pylon, among others. The empennage segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing usage of composite materials in the manufacture of empennage.
“The composites segment led the aerostructures market in 2016”
Based on material, the composites segment led the aerostructures market in 2016. Increasing adoption of composite aerostructures by the commercial and general aviation sectors is expected to drive the growth of the composites segment.
“North America is expected to lead the aerostructures market during the forecast period”
North America is expected to lead the aerostructures market from 2016 to 2022. Countries considered for market analysis in the North American region include the U.S. and Canada.
