Report Overview

The global aerospace parts manufacturing market size was estimated at USD 899.48 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4% from 2023 to 2030. The market is growing on account of growing passenger traffic, especially in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, is expected to drive the demand and production of aerospace parts, over the coming years. Moreover, the increasing demand for light weighted and fuel-efficient aircrafts to reduce greenhouse gas emission is positively influencing the demand for aerospace parts manufacturing in the market.

U.S. aerospace parts manufacturing market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The expansion in air passenger and air freight volume across the globe against the backdrop of economic growth in emerging countries and considerable developments in commercial aerospace are predicted to be key market drivers. The increase in air travel and transport is presumed to drive the demand for manufacturing of aerospace parts that are used in aircraft. The growing demand for transportation is expected to stimulate the production of aircraft, which, in turn, is expected to result in the extension of contracts between aerospace parts suppliers and aircraft manufacturing companies.

Additionally, increased defense spending to reduce the operational costs and improve the efficiency of aircraft is anticipated to create opportunities for innovation, which, in turn, is expected to boost the technological advancements in manufacturing of aerospace parts market. Aircraft are durable assets and typically remain in-service for two or three decades. As the cost to retain and operate the aircraft exceeds the profits generated, they must be replaced. New-generation aircraft and aerospace parts provides improved range and payload capability, thus enabling better fuel efficiency, significant cost savings, and profit margins compared to older aircraft. The annual replacement rate in airline industry is approximately 3%. Fleet replacement provides a strong base for long-term demand for manufacturing of new aerospace parts since it is much needed for fleet expansion.

The U.S. aerospace parts manufacturing industry dominates the global market owing to the presence of established players such as Boeing, United Technologies, Lockheed Martin, etc. increased passenger transportation is expected to drive the manufacturing of aerospace parts in the US. The rising demand for aerospace parts sourced from the U.S. including wings, fasteners, fuselages on the account of assurance of airworthiness strong legacy and technological ability to produce high quality products which is expected to drive the demand for aerospace materials over the forecast period.

Product Insights

On the basis of product, the aircraft manufacturing accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.5% in the market in 2022. This segment comprises the manufacturing and assembly of a complete aircraft, including aero structure. Aero-structure mainly comprises fuselage, door pairings, wings, and airframe.

The segment also includes developing and making aircraft prototypes; aircraft conversion that includes significant modifications to the aircraft, and complete aircraft overhaul and rebuilding. Aircraft manufacturing consists of building and assembly of civil aircraft such as large commercial aircraft, business jets, and regional aircraft. The segment is led by Boeing, who also manufactures freighters for logistic air supply.

The equipment, safety and support segment is expected to be the fastest growing type segment at a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period. The equipment, system, and support segment comprise various parts including landing gear, opening and closing doors, air management system, actuation and control system, and others. The overall weight of an aircraft is a crucial factor in determining the efficiency and design of the equipment, system, and other support systems. The reduced weight has a significant impact on the overall performance of an aircraft.

The avionics segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR in manufacturing of aerospace parts. Advanced avionics are generally used to incorporate screens allowing pictures of the flight routes as well as necessary flight instrument data. Avionics are designed to increase the safety and utility of an aircraft and aerospace parts. It encompasses electronic aircraft systems, such as fly-by-wire or fly-by-light flight controls, system monitoring, anti-collision system, and pilot interface systems including communication, flight management systems, navigation, and weather forecast. Avionics demand generally follows overall aerospace manufacturing sector and is expected to grow in line with increasing demand for aircrafts.

Aircraft Type Insights

Based on aircraft type, the commercial segment dominated the market with the highest revenue share of 51.5% in manufacturing of aerospace parts. The commercial aircraft segment is also expected to remain the fastest growing segment over the coming years. This is on account of rise in passenger and freight traffic around the world. With improved trade relations globally, there is an increase in the demand for cargo services, which is expected to drive the growth of the market for commercial aircrafts and its parts.

The commercial aircraft market is characterized by the presence of a limited number of manufacturing companies owing to the associated financial risks and technological requirements. Manufacturing engines for commercial aircraft entail the highest risk, thereby constricting the number of manufacturing companies competing in the market. Boeing and Airbus are the major commercial aircraft manufacturing companies, together accounts for majority of the overall revenue share.

Global Global aerospace parts manufacturing market share and size, 2022

The business and general aviation aircraft comprises light planes that are used for private leisure flying, personal transportation, corporate travel, and short-haul commercial transportation, such as air taxis and commuter airliners, with low takeoff weights. The growing demand for business aircraft can be attributed to its benefits such as increased mobility, enhanced productivity, and improved efficiency. Business aircraft is anticipated to boost productivity, as air travel requires less time compared to other modes of travel. This is expected to drive the demand for business aircraft along with demand for aerospace parts over the forecast period.

Military aircrafts are used to move troops and materials such as tanks, automotive vehicles, and helicopters. With modifications, they also serve as tankers for in-flight refueling. Military transporters have special features compared to commercial freight aircraft, which includes short-takeoff-and-landing capability, loading ramps, airdrop capability, and paratroop doors.

Regional Insights

The North America market for aerospace parts manufacturing dominated the regional market with the largest revenue share of 50.5% in 2022. North American economy is extremely favorable for the aircraft manufacturing owing to the increased number of aging fleets in the region. The replacement of the aging aircraft is contributed to the lower operating efficiency and revenue requirements for the operating airlines. Moreover, increase in per capita income is expected to boost the number of airway passengers, thereby boosting the demand for aircraft and its parts.

Aerospace Parts Manufacturing Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

The Asia Pacific accounted for a significant share in 2022 and the market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.3% by 2030. This is due to growing development in the aviation industry in the region driven by the economic growth of Japan, China and other countries. There is a rise in the international air travel along with growing demand for international cargo which is expected to drive the demand for MRO activities, thereby boosting the demand for aerospace parts.

The Europe aerospace parts manufacturing market was valued at 273.95 billion in 2022. The growth of the European aerospace and defense industry is expected to surpass that of the industry in the U.S. over the forecast period, owing to a slight increase in defense spending by some European countries, such as Russia, Italy. The industry has experienced improved performance against the backdrop of economic slowdown and uncertainties in recent years. However, the European industry is highly concentrated in nature on account of the major players accounting for a significant revenue share.
