Demand for New and Refurbished Aircraft and Need for Lightweighting Materials Fuel Aerospace Adhesives and Coatings Sector Growth
Customers are increasingly looking for products that are easier to apply, lighter in weight and regulatory compliant, finds Frost & Sullivan
LONDON, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Current and evolving growth prospects in the global aerospace adhesives and coatings market look promising over the next six years. Frost & Sullivan’s analysis forecasts the market to reach $1.90 billion by the end of 2024, driven by an increasing need for lighter materials, investment in technically advanced products, evolving regulations, and high-volume demand for new and refurbished aircraft.
“While manufacturers are increasingly investing in product development to enhance environmental sustainability and product efficiency, customers are seeking out products that are easy to apply, highly durable, quick drying, lighter in weight, environmentally sustainable, and regulatory compliant,” said Christeena Thomas, Senior Research Analyst, Chemicals and Materials, EIA at Frost & Sullivan.

Merger and acquisition activities are expected to continue, with global companies acquiring small manufacturers to access their products, technical competences, distribution channels, and customer bases. To gain a competitive advantage, Thomas recommends manufacturers invest in developing adhesive formulations that are superior in properties such as durability and UV resistance and compatible with multiple substrates while exhibiting reduced overall weight after application.
Key trends creating growth opportunities in the market include:
- A boost in unmanned aerial vehicle demand in commercial, defence, and general aviation segments due to decreased technology costs
- High demand for adhesives and coatings in the defence and aerospace segments in the Asia-Pacific and Rest of World countries with increased investments in domestic manufacturing and operations
- Customer demands for newer, high-performance adhesives and coatings
- Growth in defense spending in the aerospace sector due to changing global economic conditions
- Growing demand for adhesive and coatings formulations that are compatible with robotic applications
- Replacement of traditionally used heavy fasteners with lighter-weight adhesives
“Programs such as Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) in the European Union, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are expected to increase the research and development and transaction costs that businesses incur when developing and distributing new types of chemical compounds,” noted Thomas. “In addition, extensive testing, verification, and approval cycles delay product launches, resulting in significant time and costs for material suppliers.”
