Application Insights

The engine mounts application segment in the aircraft mounts market accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.4% in 2019 and is likely to ascend at a CAGR of 7.9% until 2027. Increasing production of commercial and military-grade aircraft in light of a rise in air traffic for and defense activities across the major economies is expected to support the demand in the estimated time.

Timely maintenance and scheduled services and replacement of the aircraft components are expected to augment the demand for these mounts. Moreover, the engine mounts lose their stability over a period owing to high vibrations in the compartments, thus needing a periodic replacement of the mounts.

Suspensions are the essential components installed in the aircraft to absorb the shocks created by the moving parts. These suspensions also bear a high load of the components along with the shock-absorbing mechanisms, thus losing some durability over a particular span of usage. Thereby, is anticipated to witness high demand in replacement operations of the aircraft.

Vibration and shock isolation components are installed along with the suspensions in aircraft for the smooth functioning of the movable components. The rise in the demand for the shockproof mechanism coupled with the introduction of advanced components for shock absorption is expected to support the market growth during the forecast period.

Aircraft Type Insights

In 2019, the commercial aircraft segment accounted for the largest consumption of mounts with a revenue share of over 60% 2019 and is anticipated to ascend at the highest CAGR of 8.8% over the forecast period. The rise in the number of international passengers along with a growing need for comfort and safety is likely to fuel the growth of the segment in the forthcoming years.

Prominent airline service providers across the globe are focusing on offering comfortable flights with enhanced storage and modern equipment, thus, the aerospace manufacturers are engaged in providing enhanced mounts. Major manufacturers including Airbus and Boeing are covering up the pending orders for commercial aircraft, which in turn is likely to affect the market positively.

The strengthening of defense systems in major economies has flourished the air force divisions and has raised the demand for specialty fighter planes, choppers, jets, and others. The growing need for specialty and customized mounts in military aircraft is expected to support the market growth in the projected duration.

General aviation type accounted for a substantial share in the consumption of the amounts owing to the installation of specialty and premium components. The segment is inclusive of chartered planes, private jets, and premium aircraft & helicopters. The rise in the number of private jets is likely to ascend the market in near future.

Mount Type Insights

External mounts accounted for the largest revenue share of 85.8% in 2019 and the segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The external mounts are installed for enhancement in the passenger cabins and storage space along with enhancements in seating structures in the commercial and general aviation.

External mounts are inclusive of pedestal mounts, multiplane, shock, platform, sandwich mounts, and others. The provision of modern storage spaces in the aircraft cabin and seating comfort to passengers are the factors for the installation of the majority of the external mounts in the commercial segment.

The internal mounts segment is expected to witness growth in the estimated time on account of the provision of safeguarding the engine and other component installation. Moreover, the internal mounts are installed to the reduction in vibrations and shock in the aircraft while take-off and landing activities.

Safety measures for essential components in airplanes are likely to support the industry growth over the forecast period. The internal mounts need frequent services and replacement on fix intervals owing to the smooth functioning of the said components in planes. Furthermore, the segment is expected to ascend with an increase in the number of commercial flights.

End-use Insights

In 2019, replacement end-use for the aircraft mounts accounted for the largest revenue share of 73.2% and is anticipated to ascend at a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period. Growing repair and maintenance of commercial aircraft to ensure passenger safety is anticipated to ascend the market over the forecast period.

Scheduled periodic maintenance of commercial planes and military-grade aircraft to ensure the components are intact with the respective operations are anticipated to upscale the market. Moreover, the engine mounts and suspension blocks in the aircraft need a fixed replacement over a certain period, thus influencing the replacement of such mounts.

Global aircraft mounts market share

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) of mounting products engage in manufacturing applications as the mounts are pre-installed in the crafts. The rise in the production of aircraft of all sizes and categories is anticipated to accelerate the demand for the products in the estimated time until 2027.

Procurement orders for military-grade choppers, fighter jets, and large size commercial planes from major economies and airlines are likely to support the manufacturing of new aircraft, and thus are likely to influence the product demand from the original equipment manufacturer. Moreover, premium and private aircraft orders are expected to augment growth.
