Aerospace Tapes Market Dynamics:

The market is driven by demand for aerospace tapes in various industries including commercial aviation, military aviation, and general aviation as these tapes provide excellent resistance to chemicals, fluids, abrasion, UV, and high temperatures. These tapes provide the pressure-sensitive adhesive solutions for sound/vibration damping, bonding, and protection of parts in the aerospace industry. The aerospace tapes are used to replace the old/aging aircraft and modernizing the existing aircraft.

The rise in the launch of the novel and innovative aerospace tapes shall stimulate market growth over the forecasted period. For instance, in October 2015, Victrex had launched the composites for the Aerospace industry in the form of unidirectional (UD) tape and laminate panels. In June 2015, W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., had enhanced its line of GORE SKYFLEX Aerospace Materials with a new aviation fluid-repellent tape. This new aviation fluid-repellent tape is available in various sizes. It is suitable for use on the belly fairings, engine nacelles, tail boom covers, fuel bladders, and access panels. This gap-filling material provides durable, reliable protection in the most demanding conditions, including wide temperature ranges, bending, flexing, and exposure to chemically aggressive aircraft fluids.

In March 2012, 3M Aerospace had launched the Polyurethane Protective Tapes for Aircraft Interior Corrosion Protection. The 3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes provide the durable and flame-resistant barrier that prevents costly corrosion damage to aircraft floor systems and can be installed easily and quickly for a variety of applications.

There is an increase in the research and development activities for aerospace tapes. For instance, in March 2019, Hexcel and Arkema had opened a joint research and development laboratory in Les Avenieres in France. Both the company aims at the development of the carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic prepreg tapes to enable lightweight parts to be produced for future generations of aircraft. These solutions would provide the carbon-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic prepreg tapes to enable lightweight parts to be produced for future generations of aircraft.

Aerospace Tapes Market Segment Analysis

The aerospace tapes market is segmented based on resin type as acrylic, rubber, silicone, and others. The acrylic segment accounts for the highest market share as there is higher penetration of the acrylics aerospace tapes due to their properties such as high shear strength, fast-curing time, excellent resistance to oxidation, excellent water resistance, and exceptional anti-aging properties. The acrylics aerospace tapes are firmer and more durable in comparison to the rubber-based adhesive tapes. The acrylics aerospace tapes are widely used for bonding the carpet, floorings, and galley mats in aircraft because of their excellent adhesion properties. The acrylics aerospace tapes provide the erosion protection of aircraft leading edges, propellers, de-icer systems, and helicopter rotors. The acrylics aerospace tapes are effective for leaflets, surface, and paint protection.

The silicone segment is expected to have positive market growth due to the rising demand for silicone aerospace tapes as these tapes resist fuels, oils, acids, solvents, UV, Ozone, high-heat, flame exposure, solder drips & sparks. The silicone formulation provides optimal thermal dispersion. The market is dominated by the presence of several silicone aerospace tapes. For instance, FlameShieldä Mil-spec Aviation Silicone Tape is a self-extinguishing non-flammable tape without an adhesive. It forms an excellent seal that is weather/water / air-tight when wrapped around electrical connections and connectors, cable and wiring splices, hydraulic hose protection sleeves, duct joints, and other electromechanical devices.

Further, the aerospace tapes market is also classified based on the backing material as paper/tissue, film, foam, and others. The paper/tissue segment accounts for the highest market share of XX% in 2019 owing to the higher adoption of the paper/tissue aerospace tapes as these tapes are environmentally-friendly and available in a variety of colors. The paper/tissue aerospace tapes are the ideal choice for aircraft manufacturing as these tapes are thin, flexible, and smooth. These aerospace tapes are made up of crepe paper, and rubber adhesive coating. The paper tapes have good holding power, heat insulation, and temperature resistance properties.

Aerospace Tapes Market Geographical Presentation

By region, the aerospace tapes market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, North America dominated the aerospace tapes market due to the presence of a large number of the major players with their manufacturing facilities and distribution networks. There are various regulations imposed by the government that monitors the performance and commercialization of aerospace tapes. The United States accounts for the highest market share of XX% in 2019 as the United States aerospace industry is the largest in the world. There is a high investment for the development of the aircraft. According to the Select USA, the aerospace industry contributed approximately USD 151 billion in export sales to the United States economy. Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the aerospace industry was USD 22 Billion in the United States in 2018. It is further expected that North America would maintain its dominant market position over the forecasted period.
