Aerospace cold forgings market to gain massive impetus through the burgeoning expansion of the global aviation sector, North America to crop up as one of the most profitable regional grounds by 2025

Posted on

With the stellar growth of the aviation industry, the aerospace cold forgings market is anticipated to record inevitable expansion in the years ahead. Current affairs indicate such a trend as well when in 2019, British Airways placed a massive order for 42 Boeing 777 jets. The deal comes at a time when IAG, which also owns other airlines like Aer Lingus and Iberia, said that the net profits for the group soared by 45% to €2.9 billion due to lower costs and higher passenger numbers.

On the other hand, Airbus has been setting wheels in motion to assemble its latest A330neo wide-body jet in China. The company is trying to capitalize its business in the world’s fastest-growing aviation markets. China itself is not far behind in the race and has already tested the first China manufactured full size commercial aircraft in 2017, a line that is anticipated to rival giants like Boeing and Airbus. Considering such a widespread growth in the aerospace manufacturing industry, it can be very decidedly concluded that the aerospace cold forgings market will earn substantial profits as the industry mainly deals in the manufacturing of airframes, landing gears and nacelles.

Advancement in forging technology has helped in the expansion of shapes, sizes and properties available in forged products to meet the demand for a variety of design and performance requirements. In case where strength, economy, reliability and resistance to shock and fatigue are vital considerations, reliable forgings are indispensable. Forged materials are specialized to offer high or low temperature degree of ductility, performance, hardness and machinability.

To present a brief overview of the burgeoning aviation industry and therefore the expanding aerospace cold forgings market, it is necessary to demonstrate the air travel pattern observed across the globe. Air travel has growth exponentially in the Asia Pacific region which would present the aerospace cold forgings industry with unprecedented opportunities and challenges. A staggering 3.8 billion air travelers had been reported by Air Transport Association (IATA) to have travelled in 2016 and this number has been predicted to reach 7.2 billion passengers by 2035 with most of the boost coming from Asia Pacific. China is set to overtake the U.S. as the largest aviation market in the world by 2024 while India will displace the U.K. at the third place near 2025.

One of the reasons contributing to this growth is the emerging middle class. Though the proportion of middle class in these countries are comparatively smaller than those found in more mature economies, the absolute numbers are still enormous. The upsurge in middle class households with more disposable incomes has naturally drawn people towards air travel. According to Boeing, over the next two decades 39,000 aircrafts would be in demand and at least 15,000 of these would be deployed in Asian markets with China set to become a trillion-dollar aviation market. Low cost airlines like AirAsia, Jetstar Asia, and Cebu Pacific are also another factor attributing to the rapid growth of air travel in Asia, not to mention the massive millennial population. It has been estimated that people of working age tend to fly most frequently as that saves them time.

The fact that aerospace cold forgings market stands to gain in Asia has been underlined by the recent event where Bamboo Airways of Vietnam ordered ten 787-9 Dreamliners from Boeing while VietJet ordered one hundred 737 Max planes. While the former order was priced at $3 billion, the latter came with a price tag of $12.7 billion. Remarkably, the orders come at a time when President Donald Trump of the United Sates, had been visiting Vietnam to meet with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un.

Apart from APAC however, North America also stands as one of the most vital regional contributors to the global aerospace cold forgings industry. As per reports, North America aerospace cold forgings market will register a highly exponential growth rate over 2019-2025, driven by the rising presence of numerous aircraft manufacturers in the region in conjunction with the increasing demand for aircrafts subject to the enhanced service portfolio of low cost carriers. Equally important is the fact that U.S. regulators recently approved Vietnam’s air-safety system, making its airlines eligible to begin direct flights to the U.S.

With new areas of business opportunity opening up rapidly, the aerospace cold forgings market is anticipated to grow exponentially and will continue an upward trend over the coming years. As a matter of fact, the overall aerospace cold forgings industry size is anticipated to surpass USD 5.5 million by 2025.
