Asia Pacific (APAC) and Rest of World (ROW) will generate the maximum demand for epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylate-based adhesives in the global aerospace industry due to emerging economies driving growth and increasing requirement of commercial aircraft. Global Trends and Forecast to 2020 for Adhesives in the Aerospace Industry by Region (North America, Europe, APAC, ROW), by Product Type (Epoxies, Polyurethanes, Methacrylates and Others), by Aircraft Type (Commercial, Regional, General Aviation, Military, and Helicopters). Adhesives are used for bonding both structural and non-structural parts in various aircraft, including helicopter airframes. Bonding permits assembly of dissimilar materials, enabling higher weight loads to be carried while improving uniform distribution of stresses and strains across bonded joints. While rivets, holes, and mechanical fastening elements weaken the structure, use of adhesives preserves the integrity and strength of parent materials. Adhesives offer fast processing speeds and exceptional bond strengths and are predominantly based on epoxies, polyurethanes, or methacrlyates with varying cure chemistries, depending on the substrates to be bonded. Increasing global air traffic, faster growth of emerging economies, greater demand for commercial aircraft, and a widespread use of composites to reduce aircraft weight that is leading to improved fuel economy are key drivers of adhesives in the aerospace industry during 2014-2020. To pre-order this report: [email protected] Adhesives are extensively used in aircraft side walls, luggage racks, light covers, doors and door frame covers, cabin lighting system, illuminated signs, and reflective stripes apart from serving as replacements for metal fasteners. Epoxies have excellent adhesion to metal and rigid composite substrates. Polyurethanes are suitable for thermoplastics and composites. Methacrylates provide excellent adhesion to metals, composites, and thermoplastics. Adhesives are available as films, pastes, or liquid resins. With greater use of composites in primary and secondary structures and prepregs based on high temperature resins, such as bismaleimide, cyanate esters are likely to be in demand. The emphasis will be on significant investments in R&D by adhesive suppliers for continuous improvement in adhesive performance to meet stringent specifications. Maintenance and repair of complex structures will also demand innovative high-performance adhesives. The adhesives market in the global aerospace industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2014-2020. Henkel, Huntsman, Cytec, Dow Chemical, 3M, Hexcel, Master Bond, and Ellsworth are some of the leading suppliers of adhesives for aerospace applications. Lucintel’s market research report analyzes current and emerging market trends, competitive landscapes, company profiles, and key drivers of the aerospace industry growth. It includes forecast for adhesives in the global aerospace market through 2020, segmented by region, product type, and aircraft type.
