Segment Insights on the Aircraft Engine Casting Market
The global aircraft engine casting market is segmented based on aircraft type, engine type, application type, process type, material type, end-user type, and region.
Based on aircraft type – The aircraft engine casting market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft, and general aviation. Commercial aircraft dominated the market with a share of more than 70% in 2022 and is projected to hold the biggest portion of the overall aircraft engine casting market in the coming five years. The demand for new commercial aircraft in the wake of rebounding air passenger traffic will be the key driving force of the market demand. Almost all the major airframers have announced to raise the production rates of their key programs. Supply chain disruption, labor shortage, inflation, etc. remain the major factors, increasing difficulties in achieving those targets. For instance, Boeing is targeting to produce an average rate of between 33 and 38 737s per month for 2023 (a total of about 400-450 units for the year), lower than that of its earlier projections (38 units per month in the first half of 2023 and 47 units per month by the end of 2023).
Based on the engine type – The aircraft engine casting market is segmented into turbofan, turboprop, turbojet, and turboshaft. Turbofan occupied a market share of more than 75% in 2022 and is anticipated to be the dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment in the coming years, due to the increasing demands from commercial aircraft and business jets across regions. The turbofan engine is the most fuel-efficient and generates very little noise among all engines. Leap engine is likely to remain the biggest demand generator for cast parts in the foreseeable future. CFM (Safran/GE JV) delivered 1,136 LEAP engines (certified for A320neo, B737Max, and C919) in 2022 and has set a target to deliver 1,300 engines in the year 2023, despite supply chain disruption.
Based on the process type – The market is segmented into investment casting and die & other castings. Investment acquired a market share of more than 85% in 2022 and is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing process type in the market during the forecast period. Investment casting has a host of advantages like high accuracy and precision; superior surface finish; high strength and durability; and design flexibility, making the process the most preferred choice for manufacturing engine components. All the leading cast parts suppliers, such as PCC and Howmet, are mainly relying on the investment casting process.
Based on material type – The market is segmented into nickel, titanium, stainless steel, and others. Nickel dominated the market with a share of more than 60% in 2022 and is expected to remain dominant, whereas titanium is expected to be the fastest-growing material type in the market during the forecast period. Nickel alloys offer superior adhesion, corrosion resistance, and toughness. They are suitable for situations where stress needs to be minimized. The Russo-Ukrainian war led to several changes in the market dynamics, especially at the raw material level. Titanium is sourced mostly from Russia by both Boeing and Airbus. The ban on imports from Russia after the war led to an acute increase in the price of all Russian-dependent materials, especially titanium, whose tremor was felt across the value chain including cast parts.
