The global aerospace fasteners market size was valued at USD 6.95 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 9.70 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.28% during the forecast period.

Aerospace fasteners are used in aerostructures for the manufacturing process of aircraft. The aircraft components are not produced at a single factory but assembled in diverse manufacturing locations. However, in the final aircraft assembly, aerospace fasteners are required to transform these parts into a complete aircraft. The aerospace industry is very stringent about safety and weight. Thus, the fasteners utilized for aircraft manufacturing are made of high-quality materials. The aerostructures, for example, fuselage, wings, empennage, nose, pylon and nacelle, and flight control surfaces among others, additionally require fasteners in their assembling procedure, to offer appeal and robustness to the aerostructure designs of commercial and military aircraft.

Aircraft fasteners provide firmness and rigidity to the aerostructure, which makes it a vital component of the aircraft. There are several types of fasteners available in the market such as nuts & bolts, screws, rivets and among others

Over the last few years, the aviation industry witnessed high demand for commercial aircraft owing to continuously rising air traffic in the high growth region. Therefore, aircraft manufacturers such as Bombardier, Boeing, Embraer, and Airbus are expanding their manufacturing capacity to fulfill the need for new airplane orders and previous aircraft backlogs. The different aircraft part providers are also focusing on accelerating the production to fulfill the requirement for various aircraft systems.

Restricted Material Supply During COVID-19 Crisis

The COVID-19 epidemic has created a huge impact on the aviation industry. The lockdown condition has temporarily terminated the transportation and manufacturing operations in several regions. The raw material supply has stopped owing to COVID-19, which has severely hampered the production of aerospace fasteners. The aircraft orders are increasing, while the manufacturers face numerous challenges to fulfill the demand for aircraft. The key players are focusing on adopting several strategies to overcome these challenges, such as autonomous manufacturing technologies, smart transportation services, and planning to start in-house raw material production capabilities to reduce dependency on raw material suppliers.
