Airframe segment will witness exponential growth

The airframe segment is projected to showcase 8.3% growth rate through 2027. Airframe is a structure of an airplane or spacecraft. Its principal components include fuselage, wings, landing gear, and tail assembly. Airframe is made up of high strength and lightweight materials such as aluminum alloys, magnesium, stainless steel, and titanium. Titanium alloys are utilized in airframes woing to their good toughness, high strength-to-weight ratios, and corrosion resistance. Airframe is also made by cold forging process, such as cold rolling product sheet and plate, providing good dimensional accuracy, excellent surface finish, and tight tolerances possible.

North America region to exhibit a steady growth during the forecast period

North America aerospace cold forging market is expected to expand at a CAGR of over 8.7% by 2027. The increasing demand for aircraft in the U.S. and Canada will propel the demand for aerospace cold forging as cold-forged parts require no finishing work, thereby saving costs. The cold forging process saves resources by the elimination of secondary machining operations, which produce scrap chips that can result in costly disposal fees. As aerospace’s order backlog remains high all the time, manufacturers are ramping up production to accommodate the growing demands for commercial as well as defense aircraft. Commercial aircraft demand tends to be correlated with GDP growth rates and the major aircraft manufacturers use these rates in developing their long-range plans.

Industry to observe a surge in R&D investments

Advanced manufacturing technologies adopted by industry players are significantly contributing to increasing the overall productivity. Cold forged components possessing lower yield strength offer ease of machinability, further reducing the total machining time. Focused efforts in R&D for developing advanced hydraulic presses that provide multifunctional capabilities will support the industry size. The key manufacturers in the market include Precision Castparts Corp, Arconic, Vsmpo-Avisma, Shaanxi Hongyuan Aviation Forging Co Ltd, Scot Forge, Eramet Group, Bharat Forge, and ATI Metal.
