Aircraft Doors Market By Door Type (Passenger Door, Emergency Door, Service Door, Cargo Door, Others), By Aircraft Type (Commercial Aircraft, Military Aircraft), By Revenue Source (Original Equipment Manufacturer, Aftermarket) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

"Growing Airline Passenger Traffic, Advanced Construction Material and Military Modernization to Augment Aircraft Doors Market"

The global aircraft doors market was valued at US$ 3.75 Bn in 2018 and expected to witness notable growth, expanding at CAGR of 4.49% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Aircraft doors are designed and manufactured as an integral part of airframe structure with air-tight precision. Based on their working principle and position in airframe body, aircraft doors are locked either by means of pressure difference on opposite sides of the door or by external locking mechanism. With technological development in manufacturing processes and advanced materials, aircraft manufacturers are constantly focusing on improving their ball game. Composite materials are being used by manufacturers for airframe manufacturing owing to their comparatively better strength-to-weight ratio than conventional metals and alloys. Similarly, welding process for such composite door materials is being improved in order to provide fail-safe and air-tight operation.

Significant growth in the number of air passengers along with the consistent rise in demand for aircraft is projected to boost the global aircraft doors market. Similarly, globalization and increased trade movements over the years are anticipated to accelerate the aircraft doors market for business jets. Further, the adoption of coming-of-age 3D-printing technology for aircraft doors manufacturing is the key area of focus by manufacturers. For instance, Sogeclair SA aerospace company has successfully produced high strength & lightweight aircraft door with the use of Voxeljet VX1000 3D-printer and aims to continue such production. Purchase of modern military aircraft by governing bodies in order to bolster their military strength is bound to grow the demand for military aircraft doors across the globe. For instance, Russian air force acquired some advanced military aircraft in 2018 that include Su-35S & Su-30SM fighters, Su-34 bombers, Mi-8 transport helicopters and Yak-130 training aircraft among others.

Electrically operated aircraft doors known as Next Generation Equipped Doors (NexGED) are paving their way in the aircraft doors market. Electric doors provide superior performance and better emergency evacuation passage over conventional mechanical doors owing to linear actuators that are used for arming and disarming of the slide. Such technological advancement combined with growing consumer base for airline travel is expected to boost the aircraft doors market during the forecast period.
