Fasteners are the hardware components which are used to mechanically join two or more objects together. In the same context, aerospace fasteners are special grade hardware devices, used to connect parts of aircraft during original equipment manufacturing and aftermarket servicing. Aerospace fasteners are broadly used in commercial aircraft, military aircraft, ballistic missiles, rockets and satellites. Aerospace fasteners are made under strict regulations and standards so as to withstand high fatigue loading and drastic temperature changes. Manufacturers are focused to introduce aerospace fasteners with light weight and high strength metallurgical structure in order to provide increased life and reliability rate along with enhanced fuel efficiency of the aircraft.
The number of fasteners required in a typical aircraft could reach to millions in the form of nuts, bolts, pins, rivets, washers, etc. Growing defense and space exploration activities are contributing significantly to the growth of aerospace fasteners market. Commercial civil aviation industry, owing to increase in number of passengers travelling by air route, is growing at an unprecedented annual rate, creating significant demand for commercial aircrafts. This, in turn, is expected to push market growth of global aerospace fasteners market over the forecast period of 2016-2024.
Aerospace Fasteners Market: Dynamics
The civil aviation industry is on the rise and competition among major airline companies has intensified. Unlike during the past, air traveling has no longer remained a luxury and more people are preferring air mode of transportation. Governments across the world are solidifying their air defense and strong demand for aircrafts exists both in commercial and military aircraft segments. With growing overall aircraft demand, market for aerospace fasteners is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
