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.
