The Global Aerospace and Defense Composite Ducting Market: Highlights
The global aerospace & defense composite ducting market is projected to reach US$ 773.7 million in 2022. Increasing production rate of major aircraft programs, such as A320 family, A350XWB, B737, and B787; upcoming aircraft and introduction of variants of the existing aircraft platforms, such as C919, MC-21, B737 Max, and A320neo; continuous shift from metal ducts to composite ducts to achieve higher fuel efficiency; advancement in the ducting technology; and growing aircraft fleet size are the major growth drivers of the global aerospace & defense composite ducting market.
Commercial aircraft is expected to remain the growth engine of the global aerospace & defense composite ducting market during the forecast period. This aircraft segment is also expected to witness the highest growth over the next five years, driven by increasing production rate of key aircraft programs, such as B737, A320, B787, and A350, and continuous shift from metal ducts to composite ducts in both low-pressure and high-pressure applications. Regional aircraft is also projected to witness an impressive growth during the same period.
Low-pressure applications currently dominate the global aerospace & defense composite ducting market. Composite ducting is widely preferred in the low-pressure applications throughout the entire breadth of fixed and rotary wing aircraft types and offer several advantages, such as lightweight, excellent strength, thermal resistance, and ability to be mold complex shapes.
Glass fiber is the most widely used reinforcement type in the global aerospace & defense composite ducting market and is expected to remain the largest reinforcement type over the next five years. This fiber type is highly preferred in the low-pressure applications, such as cabin air recirculation and cabin sidewall riser, as it offers good mechanical performance at a relatively low cost. Epoxy, phenolic, and thermoplastic resins are used along with the glass fibers to manufacture ducting. Carbon fiber is likely to witness the fastest growth over the next five years.
North America is expected to remain the largest market for composite ducting over the next five years. This region is the manufacturing hub of the advanced composites industry with the presence of several large to small part fabricators and prepreggers, and raw material suppliers. Boeing, Bombardier, and Lockheed Martin are the major aircraft manufacturers in North America. Asia-Pacific is likely to experience the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by demand for composite ducting in upcoming commercial and regional aircraft, such as Comac C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw materials manufacturers, composite ducting manufacturers, Engine OEMs, and aircraft OEMs, and airline companies. The key aerospace engine manufacturers are CFM, GE Aviation Engines, and Pratt & Whitney and key aircraft OEMs are Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Bombardier, Embraer, ATR, Cessna, and Gulfstream.
The key composite ducting manufacturers for the aerospace & defense industry are Senior Aerospace, Triumph Group, ITT Corporation, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Arrowhead Products, AIM Aerospace, and Stelia North America. New product development, long-term contracts, and collaboration with OEMs are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain competitive edge in the market.
