Aircraft Engine Nacelle Market Highlights 2020 – 2029

The aircraft engine nacelle market is estimated to garner a sizeable revenue by growing at a significant CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021 – 2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising demand for aircraft engine nacelle for protection from fire, increase in the number of air passengers and growing advancements in engine and nacelle technology. According to the World Bank, 2019 recorded a total of 4.397 billion air passengers worldwide. The number grew up from 3.974 billion in 2017. Furthermore, intensifying development of noise-reducing and fuel efficient engine nacelles is also projected to drive market growth. In addition to these, escalating trend for 3D-printed engine nacelles is expected to offer ample opportunities to the market in the near future.

Aircraft Engine Nacelle Market Graph

The market is segmented by material into titanium alloys, aluminum alloys, nickel chromium and composites, out of which, the aluminum alloys segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the aircraft engine nacelle market on account of their properties such as high temperature endurance and strength, corrosion resistance and ductility. Additionally, based on engine type, the segment for turbofan is evaluated to witness the highest growth over the forecast period owing to the high usage of turbofan based aircraft in regional and commercial airlines and the ability of this engine to increase thrust with lesser fuel consumption. Moreover, by end user, the OEM segment is predicted to grow with the highest CAGR in the coming years, which can be credited to the fact that OEMs are solely responsible for the installation of aircraft engine nacelles and related components. 

Global Aircraft Engine Nacelle Market Regional Synopsis

On the basis of geographical analysis, the aircraft engine nacelle market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa. The market in the North America region is estimated to acquire the largest share over the forecast period on the back of growing demand for new aircraft, continuous replacement of ageing fleet and strong presence of key players in the region.
