Aerospace Wires and Cables Market: Highlights

Wires & cables are often considered as a commodity product and form a crucial component in an aircraft. Being one of the building block elements in aircraft functioning, wires and cables have ceaselessly been in demand with a gradual increase of usage in the modern aircraft. For instance, Boeing incorporated ~40 miles of wires & cables in its B737. The company almost doubled the wires & cables consumption to 100 miles in its B767 program and further tripled to 310 miles in its B787 program. A similar trajectory has been recorded for the Airbus programs. Aerospace wires & cables are required to conform to several predetermined standards, distinct to each region.  They are used in a wide range of applications such as avionics, lighting, power transfer, and flight control surfaces.

With the rising global concern regarding environmental preservation, the regulation for CO2 emissions has gotten unbendable. The aerospace community generates ~2% of the human-induced CO2 emissions. The industry has a target to improve fuel efficiency by 1.5% per year. Wires & cables roughly contribute 3% of the total aircraft’s weight. There has been an increased demand for lightweight wires & cables to help the entire industry’s stakeholders in achieving the targets, as a general, 1% improvement in fuel efficiency yields about US$ 2.0 billion savings for airlines each year.

COVID-19 Impact

The grounding of B737 max imprinted an ephemeral distressing impact on the aerospace industry, not leaving the aerospace wires and cables market to the consequences. The market logged a minor decline in 2019, with an optimistic outlook for rejuvenated demand in the following year. However, in 2020, the rapid spread of COVID-19 has drawn in unsought changes in the business, bewildering the aerospace industry. The aerospace wires & cables market is likely to follow suit, recording a grave downturn of -24% YoY in 2020, completely crushing the market stakeholders’ hopes of pacifying the losses incurred in 2019.

That being said, the long-term scenario still seems remunerative with the buoyant aerospace industry likely to get back on track, backed by strong industry fundamentals coupled with the stakeholders’ acquired ability to manage the crisis. The industry’s rebound is likely to have a mirroring impact on the aerospace wires & cable market, reviving the demand from 2021 onwards, translating to a sale of US$ 0.8 Billion in 2026. Other key factors fueling the market, in the long run, are rebounding commercial aircraft fleet size, aging aircraft fleet size, increased use of wires & cables in modern aircraft, and fervent efforts towards developing electric aircraft.

Unlike the global wires & cables market, the aerospace market segment has remained latent in the past few years with no significant mergers & acquisitions. The sudden outbreak of the pandemic has further added to the inertia of the market with leading players putting a hold on plausible deals. For instance, Carlisle Companies, Inc., the market leader, announced to acquire Draka Felica from Prysmian in 2019, only to shelve the deal later (in 2020), as a compelling move towards cash preservation.

In terms of the aircraft type, commercial aircraft faces a short descent in the wake of the pandemic and military aircraft segment is likely to remain relatively stable. Nevertheless, the commercial aircraft segment is expected to remain the long-term thrust-bearer of the market, logging the fastest revival, owing to strong order backlogs of 12,661 (Airbus: 7,501 and Boeing: 5,160) aircraft as of August 2020. Furthermore, upcoming aircraft programs, such as C919 and MC21, are expected to uplift the segment’s healing course.

Based on the resin type, fluoropolymers are expected to remain the most widely used resin type in the market, owing to their extraordinary performance. PTFE captures a major chunk among all fluoropolymers, offering favorable properties such as extreme temperature resistance (-200°C to 300°C), chemically inert, low dielectric constant, low coefficient of friction, and excellent FST property.

Based on the application type, power transfer is expected to maintain its vanguard in the market with the least decline and fastest recovery during the forecast period, whereas the avionics segment is projected to suffer a prolonged impact of the pandemic with the slowest long-term recovery. In recent years, the market is witnessing a gradual shift towards wireless avionics and flight control systems.

All the regional markets are anticipated to mark huge declines in 2020. With the strong presence of leading players, North America and Europe are expected to grab the largest share of the market during the forecast period. The USA to act as the helm of the regional as well as global market. However, Asia-Pacific is likely to emerge out of despair earliest, with the highest long-term CAGR, offering a plethora of opportunities in the future. Other key factors likely to cause a stir in the region’s market are the opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China and upcoming indigenous commercial and military aircraft. India to be the new growth engine, actively developing policies to welcome companies willing to move away from China.

The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, wire & cable manufacturers, harness suppliers, electrical wire interconnect system suppliers, tier players, aircraft OEMs, airline companies, aircraft leasing companies, and MRO companies. Key players in the aerospace wires & cables market are Carlisle Companies, Inc., Nexans S.A., TE Connectivity, Judd Wire, Inc., Draka (Prysmian), W.L. Gore & Associates, Radiall, etc.
