This market report, from Stratview Research, studies the aerospace pressure bulkheads market over the trend period of 2013 to 2018 and forecast period of 2019 to 20224. The research report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
Pressure Bulkheads Market in the Global Aerospace Industry: Highlights
Pressure bulkhead is an essential component of an aircraft that covers the front and rear end of a fuselage. It maintains the pressure required for the cabin of an aircraft; hence, it is considered very important for the safety of passengers and crew members. Front pressure bulkhead is located near the nose landing gear and maintains front cabin pressure, whereas rear pressure bulkhead seals the pressurized passenger compartment.
As per Stratview Research, the global aerospace pressure bulkheads market is estimated to grow at an above industry growth rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 505.5 million in 2024. The market is served by aircraft OEMs producing bulkheads in-house for some of their programs as well as independent suppliers/tier players producing bulkheads for different OEMs. Major OEMs, such as Airbus and Bombardier, are producing pressure bulkheads, generally front one, of some of their aircraft programs. Also, major tier players including Spirit AeroSystems and RUAG, are also present in the market, primarily producing rear pressure bulkheads. However, tier players also produce front pressure bulkheads for some aircraft programs.
The research's findings suggest that narrow-body aircraft is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period, whereas wide-body aircraft is expected to experience the highest growth during the same period. Increasing commercial aircraft deliveries to support rising passenger and freight traffic, introduction of fuel-efficient next-generation aircraft, and rising commercial aircraft fleet size across regions are the key factors propelling the demand for pressure bulkheads in the segment.
Based on the material type, metal pressure bulkhead is projected to remain the most dominant segment of the market over the next five years. Metal pressure bulkheads, generally aluminum, have an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and are easy to repair as compared to composite ones. Low cost is another key countable factor for its preference over composite bulkheads. However, composite pressure bulkhead is projected to remain the faster-growing segment during the forecast period. Rear pressure bulkheads of aircraft are more often made with composites compared to the forward ones. But recently, composites are also gaining traction in the forward location. Both the major commercial aircraft manufacturers, Boeing and Airbus, have played a crucial role in the development of composite pressure bulkheads targeting further improvements in the safety of aircraft. They are highly corrosion resistant and offer high strength-to-weight ratio, low maintenance requirement, and contain reduced number of parts.
In terms of shape type, flat pressure bulkhead is projected to remain the most dominant segment of the market over the next five years. Pressure bulkhead structure is highly dependent upon the structure of an aircraft. Rear pressure bulkheads are generally curved, whereas front ones are flat; however, Boeing, in its major program B737, has replaced curved pressure bulkhead to flat one in the rear location in order to increase more cabin space and add more seats.
As per the study, North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period as the region is the manufacturing capital of the aerospace industry with the presence of several large- to small-sized aircraft OEMs and tier players. However, Asia-Pacific is projected to witness the highest CAGR over the next five years, propelled by several factors including upcoming commercial and regional aircraft, such as C919 and MRJ, and an opening of assembly plants in China by Boeing and Airbus
Major pressure bulkhead manufacturers are Airbus Group, Bombardier Inc., Spirit AeroSystems GmbH, RUAG Holding AG, Premium AEROTEC GmbH, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and Aernnova Aerospace S.A. Development of lightweight pressure bulkhead, collaboration with OEMs, and formation of long-term contracts are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
