Adoption of methods to reduce aircraft weight and enhance fuel efficiency will drive aerospace floor panels market during forecast period. Flooring units form a major part in aircraft gross weight and require lightweight structures to meet stringent requirements. Honeycomb sandwich panel provides high strength to weight ratio and enhanced stiffness as compared to solid metals. Continuous innovation to provide improved strength & rigidity along with weight reduction trends will influence aerospace floor panels market size.
Growing aviation industry owing to rise in air traffic has enhanced domestic and international iterations thereby driving the industry growth. In 2017, the commercial air fleets increased by over 4% to fulfil production lag of over 17,000 aircrafts. Manufacturers are continuously increasing their production capacity to meet previous backlog and is estimated to require over 9 years to reach the target at present fabrication rate. This continuous production will fuel aerospace floor panels market growth from 2018 to 2024.
The product enhances the cabin interiors and reduce overall weight to increase overall fuel efficiency. Further, flame resistance and higher durability increases the floor panels adoption. Regulatory including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), guides the aviation industry for floor panel utilization in airplanes. FAA requires the passenger compartment interiors to be self-extinguishing to avoid fire spread in case of any fire. The aircraft manufactures need to comply Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part-25 for components such as interior surface and structures to ensure flammability, smoke and toxicity requirements.
Aerospace Floor Panels Market, By Aircraft
Commercial aerospace floor panels market size will account for over 86% share till 2024 with substantial growth in global aviation industry. Rising disposable income in emerging nations has increased air passenger traffic and led to increase in domestic and international air fleets. In 2018, air passengers have increased by 6% as compared to 2017 and enhanced demand for airliners. Rise in manufacturing of commercial aircrafts including B737, B787 A350 and A320 family will fuel industry growth.
Regional jet aerospace floor panels market demand will witness 5.7% CAGR as it provides most cost-efficient air travel. Increment in regional jet series production from companies such as Bombardier to ensure global airline network will support the industry growth. Rising regional jet demand to suffice increasing passenger strength between short haul turbo props and long range single aisle will positively influence product demand. Business aircrafts segment will foresee robust growth particularly in North America and Middle East & Africa owing to high spending capacity in these regions.
Aerospace Floor Panels Market, By Raw Material
Nomex honeycomb aerospace floor panels market share will register 2.8% growth from 2018 to 2024 with high demand from commercial airplanes.
