The global aerospace fastener market is expected to reach $6.0 billion by 2021

   December 29, 2016

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global aerospace fastener market looks promising with opportunities in commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, and military aircraft segments. The global aerospace fastener market is expected to reach an estimated $6.0 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2016 to 2021. The major drivers of growth for this market are increasing aircraft delivery, increase in demand for wide body aircraft, and introduction of new aircraft programs.

In this market, fasteners are made with aluminum, steel, titanium, and other materials (superalloy). On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that titanium fasteners and other fasteners (superalloy) are expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the aircraft type, commercial aircraft segment is expected to remain the largest market during the forecast period as commercial aircraft has the largest number of fasteners when compared to any other aircraft.

North America is expected to remain the largest region due to high demand for newer aircraft and replacement of ageing fleet. Aircraft fastener demand is directly proportional to aircraft delivery.

APAC is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth in aircraft manufacturing.

For business expansion, Lucintel’s report suggests new product development to provide better corrosion resistant properties, higher strength, and weight reduction. The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include increase in penetration of titanium fasteners due to compatibility with composite parts and increase usage of titanium bolts in areas where high strength is required. Alcoa, Precision Castparts Corp., Lisi Aerospace, Stanley Engineered Fastening, National Aerospace Fasteners Corp., B&B Specialities, Inc., and Trimas are among the major suppliers of aerospace fasteners.
