Commercial Aircraft Airframe Materials Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Aerospace and Defence | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC695


Airframe is the machine-driven structure of an aircraft, which comprises landing gear, empennage, wings and fuselage. Airframe design consists of materials technology, manufacturing approaches and aerodynamics to strike a balance between performance, reliability and cost. The airframe must be able to endure aerodynamic forces and stresses progressive due to the weightiness of the payload, fuel and crew. There was a significant enhancement in the airframe materials market throughout the 1930s as the fabric and wood used previously in aircraft were substituted by high-strength and lightweight materials such as titanium, magnesium, aluminum alloys, and some stainless steel.

Market Dynamics

Growing guidelines for new-generation aircraft are highly driving growth of commercial aircraft airframe materials market. However, high maintenance and production cost are restraining the growth of this market. Acceptance of 3D printing tools for aircraft airframe is expected to present new opportunities for market growth.
