Technology advancements and product development will propel the market penetration

Ongoing developments of advanced polymers imparting chemical and flame resistance will fuel the market growth. For instance, in March 2017, Drake Plastics Ltd. Co. Plastics added Ryton R-4 in its advanced product portfolio for aerospace application. The airplanes operate at variable temperatures and require a high degree of thermal stability. The emergence of materials providing thermal stability without increasing the weight will induce significant growth potential.
 

The aerospace plastics industry will witness noteworthy demand with increasing aircraft fleet size. Aircraft manufacturers are taking initiatives for lowering gross weight to reduce emission and enhance performance. Stringent emission control initiatives adopted by governments across the globe are influencing the demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient aircrafts. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the aerospace industry is working together to enhance fuel efficiency by an average of 1.5% per year and minimize carbon emissions to 50% by 2050 as compared to 2005.
 

Increasing replacement of metal components with plastics & composite materials will escalate the aerospace plastics demand. Polymers are around 10 times lighter than the metal counterparts without trade-off in durability. Manufacturers are utilizing plastics in interior applications for improved aesthetics and to maximize space within the aircraft interior. Moreover, its usage in galleys as insulators will further support the product demand.
 

Plastics are highly suitable for vacuum forming and easily transform into a wide variety of shapes. Materials can be easily moulded into complex shapes and geometries. Plastic manufacturers are improving the materials by enhancing their chemical composition and enriching their mechanical properties. Furthermore, the development of materials to replace aircraft doors and fuselages to withstand hydrolysis and radiation will boost the aerospace plastics market growth.
 

COVID-19 pandemic crises and aerospace industry

COVID-19 pandemic is adversely affecting aerospace sector with international air transport at halt across the globe. According to IATA financial outlook published in June 2019, the airlines are expected to lose USD 84.3 billion revenue in 2020. Additionally, Boeing incurred around 66% of lower aircraft deliveries in Q1 2020 as compared to Q1 2019. Further Airbus Q1 2020, report stated that, the company’s deliveries for Q1 2020 was around 24% lower as compared to Q1 2019. Exponential rise of cases in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific for Q2 of 2020 will intensify adverse effect on aerospace industry for Q2 2020.
 

Rising deployment of low-cost carriers and development of next generation narrow body aircrafts are driving aerospace plastics consumption

Increasing deployment of low-cost carriers is propelling the narrow body aerospace plastics industry size. The segment generated around USD 17 million revenue in 2019. Presence of wide airline networks along with expansion of air fleet in international markets is creating demand for new narrow body aircrafts. Creation of competitive fare structure offering economical air travel opportunities is escalating the demand for LCC, strengthening the market size expansion.
