The aircraft insulation market is heavily driven by the fact that the chemical companies and paint manufacturers are witnessing a tremendous demand for lightweight insulators for the modern aircrafts. The advanced lightweight insulators helps the aircraft exterior as well as the interior from rainwater leakage, dust and dirt, and also reduces the noise and vibration. The rising need for lightweight insulators among the aircraft manufacturers is driving the market for aircraft insulation technology. In addition, the price of composite materials are decreasing rapidly, which is offering the aircraft manufacturers an opportunity to use composites for aircraft insulation. The composites are lightweight and can withstand various parameters such as huge heat, vibrations and even reduce noise among others. These benefits are increasing the interest for composite material insulation in aircrafts. This factor is also bolstering the aircraft insulation market to grow over the period.
The major challenge faced by the aircraft insulation market is the issues related to low shelf life and recycling of composites. The chemical companies and paint manufacturers have strict rules set by various aviation authorities such as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) among others. The composites or paints or chemicals manufactured by the insulation companies, have low shelf life and needs to replace at a regular time interval and these composites cannot be recycled for reuse. Owing to this factor, the companies are facing problems and hence, the market growth is hindered.
The aircraft insulation market is anticipated to grow over the period owing to several driving factors, however, the demand for usage of composites materials procured from general aviation industry is expected to grow the market in the coming years. The composites used in general aviation helps in reduction of noise to a greater extent. The commercial aviation industry is witnessing huge demand for composites for insulation in order to reduce noise and vibration. Hence, the demand for usage of composites in commercial aviation is anticipated to boost the market for aircraft insulation.
The market for aircraft insulation is segmented on basis of type, material, platform, application and geography. The various types of aircraft insulation techniques used in the aerospace industry includes thermal insulation, electric insulation and acoustic and vibration insulation. The thermal insulation segment dominated the market in 2016, as thermal insulation systems helps in maintaining a comfortable environment inside the aircraft and reduces vibration and noise when the aircraft is in flight. The aircraft insulation technology engages several materials such as fiberglass, ceramic based materials, foamed plastics, mineral wool, and others.
Foamed plastics are heavily used in cabins for seat cushions and mattress. The foamed plastics used in cabins helps in reducing noise, heat and vibration among others. The fixed wing aircrafts and rotary wing aircrafts constitutes the platform segment in the aircraft insulation market. The fixed wing aircraft fly at a higher altitude than rotary wing aircrafts, thus, the insulation procedure in fixed wing aircrafts are more important. Owing to this fact, the segment is expected to lead the market in future. The aircraft insulation procedures are applicable in areas such as airframe and engine. Geographically, the aircraft insulation market is evalued on basis of regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. Due to the presence of several aircraft insulation material manufacturers in the region, North America dominates the market for aircraft insulation globally.
The key participants in the market for aircraft insulation engages in collaboration, strategic partnership, and acquisitions in order to surpass competitors. The major players in the market for aircraft insulation are BASF SE (Germany), Triumph Group Inc. (United States), Zodiac Aerospace (France), Rogers Corporation (United States), Dupont (United States), Evonik Industries (Germany), Polymer Technologies Inc. (United States), Zotefoams (United Kingdom), Esterline Technologies Corporation (United States), and Duracote Corporation (United States) among others.
