In terms of feasibility, Aluminium offers remarkable strength-to-weight properties to floor panel designers along with flexibility and considerably low processing cost, as compared to other robust materials like Titanium. Other notable features of Aluminium are corrosion resistance, easy to machine and cut as per required specifications and the ability to enhance the durability of structural components. Since the alloy is also described as being almost 90% recyclable, Aluminium honeycomb sandwich panels are expected to become immensely popular in the aerospace floor panels market. Major aircraft manufacturers are already treading in the direction of adopting aluminium honeycomb cores in flooring to reduce the structural weight and cost of production. Interesting predictions regarding growth of the aircraft segment has evidently spurred the development of the aerospace floor panels industry.

Recently, the American multinational airplane maker Boeing released a statement in which it mentioned that the aircraft industry has been witnessing a prolific growth trend over the past eight years. The company also revealed certain estimates, according to which the global demand for new passenger jets will reach approx. 42,730 by 2037. The total value of these new planes is projected to be around USD 6.3 trillion, indicating the massive earning potential of the aerospace floor panels market from new aircraft production. Boeing attributes the growing demand to the continuous economic growth worldwide and the rising consumer spending, especially by the working middle class population. Expansion of the tourism sector has additionally boosted air traffic in emerging economies, strengthening the aerospace floor panels industry stance.

Besides the passenger segment, use of cargo planes for transporting heavy commercial or military equipment and to undertake product delivery between multiple countries has grown tremendously due to progressive pricing trends. As a result, not only new cargo-carrying aircrafts are being made but old and new commercial jet builds are also being converted to freight planes, signifying a lucrative emerging avenue for the aerospace floor panels market. For instance, Dresden-based Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), a joint venture between Airbus and Singapore Technologies (ST) Engineering’s Aerospace arm, is involved with converting passenger jet to freight aircrafts. In August 2018, EFW delivered an Airbus A330-200 Passenger-to-Freighter converted plane to EgyptAir Cargo, while reports indicate that EFW has further contracts in the pipeline to convert ten A321-200s for lessor Vallair.

As cargo freighters need to be light for traversing large distances with heavy loads, sturdy flooring and lighter frame is essential for guaranteeing safe transportation and better fuel-efficiency. With projects like EFW, production of floor panels suitable for commercial logistics will see tremendous increase and substantially bolster the aerospace floor panels industry. Anticipated to register a 4% CAGR from 2018 to 2024, the aerospace floor panels market is spearheaded by companies like EFW, The Gill Corp., Rockwell Collins, Zodiac Aerospace, Nordam Group, Euro Composites and Avcorp Corporation.
