The aerospace valve is an important part of the aviation system as it controls the flow of gases or fluids by opening and shutting a path. Different types of valves are used in an airplane, depending upon application and pressure requirements. The global market has been driven by factors such as a rise in aircraft fleet size, frequent need for replacement of valves, and others.

Manufacturing Facilities Have Faced Exceptional Challenges amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

Lockdown countries such as Germany, U.S., France, Japan, India, and China led to losses in revenue of manufacturing industries as they had to halt the production for many days. Though the manufacturing units were functioning since after May 2020, only 1/3rd of the working staff was present in alternation, which led to rise in order backlog. Moreover, government limitations on travel and trade, along with the reduced demand for air travel led to huge losses in revenue in the aerospace sector. The revenue losses led to the termination of new aircraft orders, thus leading to a decrease in the demand for aerospace valves that are installed in various aircraft systems.

Furthermore, disturbances in supply chains and shortage of raw materials owing to the epidemic also pose a challenge to the aerospace valves market growth.

Integration of Internet of Things (IOT) with Aerospace Valves to Bolster Market Outlook

The aviation sector is integrating advanced technologies such as Internet of things (IoT) into valves to enable smarter operations. IoT helps to enhance the efficiency of control valves and cut maintenance costs over the lifecycle of valves. The technology provides numerous benefits to airliners by enabling regular valve health monitoring and downtime prevention through timely fault warnings. The data received from the IoT-powered valves helps make smarter decisions in addition to basic functionality such as opening, closing, and flow modulation. Thus, the integration of IoT into valves could create massive opportunities for manufacturers in the forthcoming years. 


Surge in the Acquisition of New Aircraft Triggered by the Increasing Demand for Air Travel to Fuel Growth

Robust economic development and increased travel is leading to rising air passenger traffic.

The growing number of air passengers has widely driven the procurement of new aircraft. Aircraft manufacturing companies have increased their production owing to increased aircraft orders. OEMs such as the Boeing Company and Airbus are anticipating substantial recovery of aerospace sector post-COVID-19 pandemic.

Airbus aims to increase the manufacturing of A320 family of aircraft to 45 aircraft per month by 2021 end. Moreover, the company aims to ramp up production to 64 aircraft per month by June 2023, and 70 aircraft per month by 2024.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) reports that the number of air travelers could double to hit 8.2 billion by 2037.

The rising demand for air travel has led airline companies to expand their aircraft fleet, which is expected to augment the market growth during the forecast period.

Regular Replacement of Valves Due to the Increased Flight Hours to Fuel Market Growth

Due to rising air travel, aircraft flight hours have increased substantially, leading to wear & tear of valves. The life cycle of valves depends on the number of calendar days and flight hours. The average MTBUR (Mean Time Between Unscheduled Removal) of valves is between 9,000 and 100,000 cycles. Since valves cannot be refurbished, they need to be replaced at the end of their lifecycle. These factors indicate a lucrative opportunity for aerospace OEMs.


Frequent Alterations in Raw Material Prices Hampers the Market Growth

The volatility in prices of raw materials such as steel, iron, alloys, and others is due to an imbalance in its supply and demand. Thus, the fluctuations in the prices of raw materials are anticipated to restrain the growth of the market.


By Type Analysis

Butterfly Valve Segment to Grow at Faster Rate Owing to its Extensive Use in Fuel and Pneumatic Systems

By type, the aerospace valves market share is divided into butterfly valve, ball valve, rotary valve, gate valve, and others.

The butterfly valves segment is anticipated to grow at higher CAGR through the projection period owing to the extensive usage of butterfly valves in various applications such as fuel systems and pneumatic systems of an aircraft. The ease of use, compact size, and fewer space requirements of butterfly valves is the reason for their higher adoption.

The ball valve segment is anticipated to showcase significant growth in the market owing to its adoption in aircraft turbines to maximize the efficiency of the turbines.

Based on application, the market is segmented into the fuel system, hydraulic system, pneumatic system, lubrication system, and others.

The hydraulic system segment was expected to hold highest market share in 2020. The growth of the segment in the market can be attributed to the extensive use of valves in hydraulic systems in various components of aircraft such as landing gear, brakes, flaps, and others.

The pneumatic system segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2021-2028. The increasing need for replacing hydraulic systems with pneumatic systems to avoid oil leakage is expected to fuel the segment growth. Moreover, the rising demand to increase the efficiency of aircraft by decreasing fuel consumption is anticipated to aid the growth of the market.

By End-Use Analysis

OEM Segment Expected to Dominate Due to Rising Commercial Aircraft Deliveries

Based on the end-user, the market is bifurcated into OEM and aftermarket.

The OEM segment dominated the market in 2020 and will record the highest CAGR over 2021-2028. Aircraft valves are mainly installed by OEMs during the assembly stage, post which they are delivered to aircraft makers. A notable uptick in aircraft demand across regions is expected to fuel the segment growth.

The aftermarket segment is expected to grow significantly owing to the rise in the retrofit of technologically advanced aerospace valves into conventional aircraft.

In May 2021, Triumph Group was awarded a contract extension by the Boeing Company to supply critical system components for the 787 Dreamliner. The contract focuses on the provision of a high-valve system, geared solution, and MRO
