・競争状況（Hexcel Corporation、Allegheny Technologies Incorporated、AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V.、…）
The defense aircraft materials market is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period, 2021-2030.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the economy of several countries across the globe and emerged as a global threat, significant enough to make few countries prioritize their allocation of funds for the health crisis over military threats. Since the budget allocated for 2020 was finalized prior to the pandemic, there was not much impact of the COVID-19 observed on the spending of major countries. The global defense spending accounted for USD 1.98 trillion, a 2.6% growth over 2019 defense spending. This resulted in a moderate impact on the entire military aircraft supply chain.
As several countries look to modernize their military aircraft fleet, demand for aircraft materials has also increased over the past decade. Significant investments have resulted in the development of advanced materials with improved features. Such factors are supporting the growth of the defense aircraft materials market.
Emerging fabrication technologies and manufacturing processes are envisioned to improve the current properties of the military aircraft materials and foster the impetus for developing new alloys for manufacturing high-performing aircraft parts and airframe structures.
Key Market Trends
Combat Aircraft Segment to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period
Combat aircraft are vital for protection against aerial threats, as they can engage in, both, aerial warfare, and ground-support missions. Global military powerhouses, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France, and Japan are vying to achieve a profound reconceptualization of modern aerial warfare techniques by fostering the indigenous development of fifth generation and the envisioned sixth-generation combat aircraft. The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is one of the most advanced combat aircraft currently in service. Lockheed Martin delivered 134 F-35 jets in 2019 which reduced to 123 jets in 2020 due to the pandemic. In 2021, the company plans to manufacture between 133 and 139 examples of its F-35 stealth fighter. Constellium SE supplies the corrosion-resistant 7050 and 7140 alloys used in the F-35 airframe. It is also a major supplier of the Airware 2297, and 2098 alloys used in the bulkheads, skins, and other key structural components of the Boeing F-18 and Lockheed Martin F-16 aircraft programs. UAE, Japan, Qatar, the UK, Singapore, and Germany are some of the countries that have either placed orders or are planning to procure combat aircraft during the forecast period. On a global scale, the demand for combat aircraft greatly outnumbers the demand for non-combat aircraft, hence the segment is envisioned to dominate the market in focus during the forecast period.
North America to Continue its Dominance in the Market
North America region currently dominates the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the market majorly due to the robust military aircraft procurement plans of the United States. The United States is the largest defense spender in the world that has been significantly increasing its defense expenditure every year. Currently, it spends more than 3% of its GDP on defense. Similarly, over the past few years, Canada has been increasing its military spending. The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has significantly invested in R&D resulted in the development of new aircraft materials and sophisticated fabrication processes for advanced aerospace materials. This included in the development of advanced composite materials that will allow the aircraft to perform missions with minimum detection and loss of aircraft and personnel. The US Air Force is also working on new materials and technologies for sustainment part production such as the use of hexagonal blanks using additively-manufactured high strength aluminum, polymer, and hybrid materials. Dispersal of several new procurement contracts for aerial assets is envisioned in the future, driving the North American segment of the market during the forecast period.
The rapidly evolving aerospace industry calls for a solid supply chain, where transparency and traceability are of paramount importance, especially since the aircraft OEMs face mounting market pressures to increase production rates through continuous improvement and automation while keeping an eye on sustainability and energy/cost efficiency. Thus, a reliable, standardized production process and consistent data capture throughout the production cycle are crucial to ensure repeatability, while ensuring the quality of the finished materials. However, the regional market is consolidated, as strategic collaborations have become a frequent occurrence. For instance, in October 2019, AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group NV signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of International Specialty Alloys from Kennametal Inc. The defense aircraft materials market is highly competitive, and it is marked by the presence of many prominent players competing for the market share. The stringent safety and regulatory policies in the defense sector are expected to restrict the entry of new players. Furthermore, the market is primarily influenced by the prevalent economic conditions in dominant markets like the United States. Hence, during an economic downturn, contracts may be subjected to deferral or cancelation and lead to a relatively slower growth rate, which, in turn, can adversely affect the market dynamics and the manufacturers.
