Lightweight Coating Materials Gaining Swift Momentum in Europe’s Advanced Aerospace Coatings Market, Finds FMI Study

Mar 22,2019 | Chemicals & Materials

The report provides comprehensive information on market trends, value (US$ Mn) and volume (‘000 Li), competition, recent developments and dynamics in Europe advanced aerospace coatings market for the duration between 2018 and 2028.

The Europe advanced aerospace coatings market was valuated at just-over US$ 390 million in 2018, which is anticipated to register the CAGR of 4.9% through 2028. Increasing demand for efficient and lightweight advanced aerospace coatings is expected to be a major factor driving the demand for advanced aerospace coatings in the Europe market during the forecast period.

Rising Aircraft Production & Expanding Fleet Size Continues to Generate Sustained Demand for Advanced Aerospace Coatings in Europe

Europe’s increasing air passenger traffic has been leading to an increase in the demand for commercial aircraft. This, in turn, has been leading to an increase in the production of commercial aircraft. The growth of the advanced aerospace coatings market is directly dependent on the total aircraft production and the fleet size.

Rising production and sales of aircraft, particularly in developing countries within the region are anticipated to create noteworthy opportunities in Europe’s advanced aerospace coatings market. Increasing aircraft deliveries by leading manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing are underpinning substantial additions to the existing aircraft fleet size of Europe.

Progressing Scenario within MRO Segment to Majorly Influence Europe’s Advanced Aerospace Coatings Market Growth

As the number of aircraft that are in service is increasingly constantly, the report prompts at the subsequent rise in demand for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of various aircraft parts, components, and vital systems. This, according to FMI, will trigger the revenue growth of MRO sales channel within Europe’s advanced aerospace coatings market during the forecast period.

The MRO sales channel of commercial segment of the Europe advanced aerospace coatings market is projected to grow at a 5.9% value CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing fleet size of commercial as well as business aircraft and high demand for customized exteriors are some of the other factors driving the growth of the advanced aerospace coatings MRO sales channel.

Aftermarket Sales of Advanced Aerospace Coatings in Europe to Gain Uptick with Soaring Demand for Leased Aircraft

An aircraft, being one of the most expensive commodities, a number of small airline carriers prefer to lease from major players. While leasing of aircraft helps these airline carriers avoid high capital investments, they generally tend to renovate the entire aircraft before putting it into operation. The entire aircraft cabin is renovated according to specific requisites of respective airline carriers and their customer demands.

More often, a leased aircraft is coated with multiple paints and colors, highlighting the symbol and logo of particular airlines. According to the report, increasing rate of aircraft leasing will continue to push the growth of advanced aerospace coatings market in Europe.

Rapid Sales of Advanced Aerospace Coatings Continue to Suffer from Relatively Gradual Growth of European Economies, Post Crisis

Post the financial crisis, economic growth has slowed down, as compared to the growth registered prior to the financial crisis. Wage growth has been weak and most of the industrial work has been outsourced to emerging economies, which has made industrial investment in developed economies weak. This, in turn, has been restraining the growth of the advanced aerospace coatings market.

Democratic uprisings, such as the Arab Spring, economic sanctions against Russia and the involvement of Ukraine in a proxy war, have pushed many countries into an economic turmoil. The market in these nations has been deteriorating exponentially and in recent times, these markets have been exhibiting a moderate growth scenario. Due to the economic crisis, the purchasing in these countries has come down drastically and subsequently, the demand for advanced aerospace coatings has suffered.
