The backshell market was valued at US$ 536.84 million in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 752.59 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2021 to 2028.

The automotive industry is undergoing a shift from internal combustion engines to electrification owing to the increasing concerns regarding carbon emission. The vehicles used armed forces are major diesel-powered and it lacks the quick maneuverability capabilities of an electric-powered vehicle, such as increased torque, towing capability, and climbing ability. Moreover, the thermal signature of an Electric Vehicle (EV) cannot be detected from a long distance that of an internal combustion engine, which acts as a major benefit on the battlefield. Currently, the US Army is actively evaluating various options with automotive manufacturers to develop electric vehicles for military applications. For instance, in 2020, the Maneuver Capabilities Development and Integration Directorate (MCDID) approved the study of tactical and combat vehicles with electric engines. Moreover, in May 2021, General Motors demonstrated an EV prototype of its Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) for military application. Additionally, the US government awarded contracts to companies to study various techniques for powering a future fleet of 225,000 electric military vehicles. Thus, the development of EVs for military applications would propel the adoption of military-grade connectors, which would subsequently drive the growth of the backshell market in the future.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Backshell Market

The outbreak of the COVID–19 has significantly affected the world and is continuing to shatter several countries. Until the outbreak, the aerospace & defense industry was experiencing substantial growth in terms of production, despite huge backlogs from the aircraft manufacturers. The global aviation industry witnessed a significant rise in the number of passengers count and increase in aircraft procurement.

Unfortunately, the COVID–19 outbreak has decimated the demand for aircraft across the world. Owing to the crisis, aircraft manufacturers witnessed the reduction in the volumes of orders, which resulted in a lower number of productions. The decline in production volumes adversely affected the businesses of various component manufacturers and associated technologies. Thus, the backshell market players' businesses have been severely affected by the destabilization in aircraft production. Amid COVID-19 outbreak, the aerospace & defense industry witnessed tremor with minimal resources to foresee the future. Several production units in the US, France, Russia, and China were temporarily closed in order to adhere to the government rules regarding lockdown and physical distancing. The aircraft manufacturers witnessed 30–50% reduction in demand for most of the aircraft models, especially, commercial aircraft models. The restrictions on the production and assembly of aircraft and military ground vehicles have hindered the demand for backshell, resulting in lower revenue generation. This factor negatively impacted the backshell market.

Backshell Market Insights

Growing Use of Aluminum Backshell

The aluminum backshells are gaining importance in the commercial aviation business, as the commercial (civil and general aviation) aircraft manufacturers are consistently striving hard to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission and increase endurance. The usage of heavier metallic components restricts the aircraft OEMs to attain the above-mentioned parameters. Owing to this, the usage of lightweight components or parts is surging among these manufacturers. As the commercial aircraft OEMs are emphasizing aluminum backshells for varied connectors, the demand for aluminum backshells is growing among the MRO service providers. Apart from the owners of the newly manufactured aircraft fleet, the owners of the existing aircraft fleet are also concentrating on retrofitting their aircraft models with lightweight and advanced aluminum backshells as these products increase the lifespan of connectors by 4% to 8%. Also, the retrofitting of aluminum backshell helps in reducing aircraft weight, thereby facilitating the aircraft fleet owners to accomplish their weight and CO2 reduction and longer endurance strategies. Due to this, the MRO service providers are increasingly procuring aluminum backshells, which is fueling the growth of the backshell market.

Type-Based Market Insights
