Worldwide Aircraft Doors Market to exceed $9.5 Bn by 2025
Published Date: January 14, 2019 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Soumalya Chakraborty
Aircraft Doors Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 9.5 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Rising air carrier fleets owing to increasing air passenger traffic will augment aircraft doors market growth over study timeframe. As per the International Air Transport Association (IATA), in 2017, the passenger traffic rose to 4 billion and increased by over 8% compared with 2016. Air carrier manufacturers such as Boeing, Bombardier, and Airbus are upgrading their manufacturing facilities to meet increasing demand and previous production backlog. For instance, in November 2018, Airbus jetliners production backlog stood over 7,300.
Airline manufacturers are focusing on reducing the overall air carrier weight to enhance fuel efficiency and profitability. Government entities are taking initiatives to adopt innovative materials for structures. For instance, in 2014, European Union funded research to incorporate carbon nanotubes for producing lightweight and cost-effective structural parts including landing gear door. Rising prominence for weight reduction solutions in air carriers will drive aircraft doors market size over the forecast timeline.
Organizations including International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) govern the adaption of structures in aviation industry to check the carbon emission from airlines. In March 2017, ICAO adopted CO2 emission standards for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Further, FAA enforces an advisory circular 25.783-1A stating the fuselage doors requirements to ensure passenger safety.
