On 14th June 2021, Counterpoint released its seventeenth report on the Aerostructures market – Aerostructures 2021.
Why buy this 800-page report?
Because the aerostructures supply chain is at the heart of the turmoil currently being experienced in the aerospace supply chain, which we think will be the catalyst for a period of radical change. This will be caused by the aircraft OEMs’ changing aerostructures sourcing strategies, and continuing capital investment requirements in what has now become a capital-intensive sector.
- Our 2021 report also offers comprehensive market analysis including:
- The estimated segmentation of this $44 billion market (down from $67 billion in 2019), including:
- Composite, titanium and other metallic structures
- Civil and military: OE production, spares and modifications
- Generic aircraft type: e.g. large commercial, regional, business, helicopters
- Aerostructures product type: wings, fuselage, nacelles & pylons, empennage
- Market tier: super tier-1, tier-1, tier-2; the value of sales at different points in the supply chain
- 10-year forecasts with three scenarios for COVID-19 pandemic recovery.
- Market shares by suppliers for the segments described above
- Market trends and key characteristics
- Outsourcing by the aircraft OEMs
- Competitive background by segment and sub segment
- Composite materials and technology: e.g., thermoplastics, out-of-autoclave, automation.
- The fight-back of metal: new alloys; new metal forming/joining; additive manufacturing
- The role of governments: e.g., share ownership, R&T, offset, environmental
- The evolving role of China
- How do aerostructure firms respond to this marketplace?
- Survival in the short term.
- Industry consolidation, including analysis of M&A activity.
- The increasing role of private equity/financial buyers.
- Reported aerostructures profitability, and analysis.
