The aerospace titanium fasteners market size was valued at US$ 1,119.23 million by 2028 from US$ 693.31 million in 2020; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2020–2028.

The maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations consist of periodic inspection, defect rectification, overhaul, and replacement along with the embodiment of aircraft modification for continuous airworthiness of the aircraft and its parts. Aircraft are periodically serviced, which involves repairing and replacing various aerospace parts, such as landing gears and engine. The increasing spending on the MRO activities of military and commercial aircraft is subsequently driving the growth of the aerospace titanium fasteners market. In March 2021, Sichuan Airlines awarded a five-year MRO service contract to MTU Maintenance for its A319, A320, and A321 aircraft. In November 2020, Boeing was awarded an MRO contract worth US$ 9.8 billion for Saudi Arabia’s F-15 fleet. In September 2020, RUAG was awarded an MRO contract for US Navy’s F/A-18 Hornet fleet.

The aviation industry players emphasize manufacturing, integration, or mounting lightweight materials on aircraft models. The aviation authorities, aircraft and aircraft-component manufacturers, MRO service providers, and military forces seek lightweight materials to extend the aircraft's flying range and enhance fuel efficiency. Many aerospace fasteners suppliers prefer titanium alloy materials for the development of lightweight equipment. In 2020, the US applied Ti-6Al-4V alloy bolts to B-52 bombers and achieved a remarkable weight reduction effect, which underlined the application of titanium alloy fasteners in aerospace. Thus, the popularity of lightweight material-based fasteners in the aerospace industry is anticipated to generate ample growth opportunities for aerospace titanium fasteners market players in the coming years.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Aerospace Titanium Fasteners Market

The COVID-19 outbreak significantly affected the world in 2020. Until the outbreak of COVID–19, the aerospace industry was experiencing substantial growth in terms of production. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the production and sales of aerospace titanium fasteners came to a sudden halt in most countries. The US witnessed the most severe impact of COVID-19 in 2020. The region's aircraft manufacturers and service providers were affected due to nationwide lockdowns and travel restrictions, aircraft production facility shutdowns, and disrupted aerospace industry due to material shortages. All these adversities affected everything from supply chain and manufacturing to product sales. However, according to Airbus, the global and European aviation industry is expected to reach pre-COVID levels during 2023–2025, while the European aerospace titanium fasteners market is expected to surpass its pre-COVID levels by 2025. Thus, the fast projected recovery of aircraft manufacturers is expected to propel the aerospace titanium fasteners market growth in the coming years.
