Copper/stainless steel are preferred in devising aircraft wire and cables. Herein, being lightweight, strong, and flexible – are the three things needed in unison. Corrosion resistance and tolerance with regards to high temperatures are the other mandates. Galvanized steel forms are the latest trend in conductor material as galvanized steel has been proven to be stronger and all the more affordable. Plus, “customization” and “lifetime warranty” are the factors looked into while fabricating these aircraft wire and cables. The basic application areas comprise data transfer, lighting and flight control system, and power transfer.
Commercial aviation has taken the entire airline industry by storm in the last few years. This definitely asks for installing electronic and electrical equipment for navigation, general operations, and safety on the part of air fleets. Plus, the old wires and cables need to be replaced. The prevalent aircraft design also needs enhancement with respect to electrical wiring. These factors are expected to upscale the aircraft wire and cables market in the years to come.
There has been a dearth of well-trained professionals to execute the wires and cable installation services. This is likely to cause safety hazards. It has been observed that close to 60% of aircraft wires and cable installation services market prefers contractual business, wherein having trained workers for the job is a lop-sided priority. This factor could act as a hindrance to the market in the near future.
Also, the onslaught of Covid-19 has applied brakes to the airline industry. This thing is been observed since Mar 2020 when airports had to be indefinitely closed to prevent the further spread of disease. The situation right now also isn’t that pleasant. There are feeble chances of the airline industry having its cash registers ringing in the year 2020. The year 2021 is expected to get the things back to normal over here.
Something on the Insulation Side
As far as insulation is concerned, the materials used are XPLE (cross-linked polyethylene), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), polypropylene, TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), PPE (polyphenylene ether), and others. Out of these, thermoplastic polyurethane serves the purpose in the best possible manner, as it could be molded well and recycled. As such, environmental hazards could be kept in check along these lines.
Encompassing all the Aircrafts
Civil helicopters, civil aircraft, general aviation aircraft, commercial passenger and cargo aircraft, fighter jets, transport carriers, military helicopters – all the aircraft come under the gambit of aircraft wire and cables market. Commercial aircraft and helicopters have been ruling the roost, and the trend is expected to continue going forward as well. This could be credited to more number of people opting for air travel due to reduction in air fares and the time saved as compared to the other modes of transport.
Aircraft Wire and Cables Market: Competitive Landscape
The aircraft fire detection and protection systems market consists of North America (Canada, US), Western Europe (Spain, UK, France, Italy, Germany), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico), Japan, Asia-Pacific (New Zealand, Australia, ASEAN, India, China), Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland), MEA (Northern Africa, South Africa, GCC Countries).
Asia-Pacific is turning out to be a prominent region pertaining to aircraft wire and cables market due to players starting with manufacturing units in the countries herein. Also, MRO services are growing over here, which is creating an immense growth potential. North America and Europe continue to have an upper hand in the aircraft wire and cables market.
