Ducting system are used in high as well as low temperature and pressure areas of the rotary and fixed winged aircraft for both military and civil applications. The low pressure ducting system are used in low pressure and temperature applications such as transition ducts, windscreen demisting, flight deck instrumentation cooling, cabin side wall riser duct, acoustic silencer, avionics ventilation, air conditioned supply and cabin recirculation. Most preferred materials in low pressure ducting system are stainless steel and titanium.
The major applications of this high pressure ducting system are engine bleed air, APU air intake and exhaust, thermal anti-ice system, engine starter duct system and fuel tank inerting system. High pressure ducting system are arrayed throughout the aircraft i.e. from engines, fuselage to the edges of the wings. The major players in this market uses high temperature metals like stainless steel, titanium and composite to offer absolute optimum ducting system solutions. Composite materials is likely to advance market traction over the next couple of years by replacing metals.
The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand of aircraft in the emerging countries. Countries like China, India, Brazil, and Korea among others are the fewer countries that are bolstering the demand of aircraft that results in the demand of aerospace ducting system. Advancement in technology is also an important factor bolstering the demand of aerospace and defense ducting systems in global market.
