The ceramic material will capture the highest revenue share of approximately 52% over the study timeframe owing to the enhanced properties exhibited by ceramic including high tensile strength, chemical inertness, and increased melting temperatures. The rising adoption of ceramic in military and commercial sector is further escalating the aerospace insulation business share over the next six years.
Proliferating low-cost carrier services for air passengers is playing a significant role in the industry growth till 2024. Increasing aircraft production to meet backlogs will further strengthen the aerospace insulation business size over the study time frame. For instance, in 2017, according to the CAPA-Centre for Aviation, aircraft manufacturers are working actively to meet the backlogs of around 50% of the total aircrafts in service, supporting the revenue share.
Several government bodies globally including EASA and FAA are standardizing norms for increasing passenger safety. For instance, the EASA has authorized the retrofitting of improved acoustic, thermal, and fire-resistant insulation panels for flights in-service expanding the revenue share over the forecast timeframe. However, high labor cost and technology constraints for recycling may negatively impact the aerospace insulation market during the forecast period.
Airframe segment is expected to generate around USD 3 billion over the projected timeframe. Increasing use of composites for reducing the aircraft weight is expanding the segment revenue share. The requirement for improved thermal, acoustic, and fire-resistant insulation panels for increasing passenger comfort and safety will accelerate the aerospace insulation market growth during the projected timeframe.
