The global aerospace fasteners market is expected to grow from U.S. $6.17 billion in 2021 to $11.31 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 6.96% during the forecast period 2022-2030. This is according to a newly published report by market research company, The Brainy Insights.
The use of superalloys in manufacturing these products is anticipated to expand demand for the aerospace fasteners market during the projection period.
Aerospace fasteners refer to the critical components used to combine two or more objects in aircraft designing and manufacturing. Fasteners play an important role in the aerospace industry because of how important they are in providing reliable connections of parts in the secondary and primary structural areas of aircraft — as well as non-pressurized, pressurized, and load-transferring applications.
The surge in air travel worldwide due to the rise in tourism and high standard of living is the driving factor of the market growth. Further, the expansion in demand for aerospace fasteners for defense systems in fighter jets and military helicopters, among other particular aircraft across the military air force, propels the market growth.
Moreover, a rise in demand to reduce an aircraft’s weight and increase its efficiency is also driving the fastener market growth during the forecast period. The proliferation of the automotive sector, surge in investments, and raised disposable income also positively affect the aerospace fasteners market.
The high production price is one of the restraining factors of market growth. The absence of raw materials is a challenging factor, including the expense of materials and supply-chain issues. This is also expected to influence the defense sector. Technological progress can also make it difficult for factories of aerospace fasteners to develop suitable fasteners and other related products, hampering market growth.
To enhance their market position in the global aerospace fasteners market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies — such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.
