Aerospace Smart Coatings Market Insights
Increasing aircraft functionality and improving the aesthetic appearance are major factors driving Aerospace Smart Coatings demand. Enhancing paint life, surface protection, and increasing surface proficiency have influenced aircraft manufacturers to shift from conventional undercoats. Advancement in the development of multi-functional & smart coatings such as self-healing coats, nano-coatings, and interior functionality enhancement will open new avenues in the industry.
Rising demand for efficient and lighter-weight aircraft along with the preference for durable composites will drive the demand for Smart Coatings in the Aerospace industry. Associated advantages with these materials include but are not limited to tensile strength, anti-corrosion, and lesser fuel consumption which makes the product highly beneficial for the capital-intensive industry.
Aviation is a capital-intensive industry that requires consistent resource flow. Cost reduction and economic gain are of keen importance in the industry. Thus, resulting in the highest number of technological advancements across the transportation industry. Number of patents with respect to technological advancement is highest in the aviation industry Annually, more than 9% of patent activity increases, with nearly 40% patents were filed in China followed by the U.S., and Japan. Majorly the patents are filed by the research institutes and universities. China also has the highest grant rate as compared to the other nations.
The overall patenting activity depicts the major focus on parts and components of the aircraft such as structural body parts, compressor or turbine blades, airfoils, heat exchanges, and valves. The other patents emphasize on parts and components which are prone to exposure in harsh environments factors such as high temperatures and pressures which may result in corrosion and surface damage.
Technological advancements along with the expansion in the aviation industry will propel the Aerospace Smart Coatings adoption. Requirements to meet such energy efficiency, light weightiness, sturdiness, superior performance, and improved appearance will drive industrial growth. Comparatively lesser cost along with the reduction in operational cost due to effective protective layers will induce the product demand. In addition, increasing aircraft lifespan by providing anti-corrosive and self-healing undercoats will impact the overall industrial growth.
Aerospace Smart Coatings Market: By Function
Anti-corrosion, anti-icing, anti-microbial, anti-fouling, self-healing, and self-cleaning are major functions involved in the aerospace smart coatings market. Corrosion resistance is among the major concern in the aviation industry. Each year engineers spend a huge amount of money to maintain the aircraft and prevent it from corrosion. Thus, the introduction of anti-corrosive materials has gained huge adoption in the aviation industry. The other major functionality is the protection from microbes. The aircraft are prone to get affected by microbes due to the diversified climatic conditions which in turn impact the lifespan of the components. It is recommended to adopt the anti-microbial layer on the interior and exterior structure to increase the component life cycle.
Self-healing functionality is expected to witness high growth due to its novel features and capabilities. It is capital intensive to repair the damaged aircraft components and also requires high technicality to renovate the components. Thus, the introduction of self-healing materials will ease the restoration process and reduce the overall cost.
Aerospace Smart Coatings Market: By Layer
Single and multi layer are two aerospace smart coatings available in the industry. The usage is highly dependent on the component nature and purpose. The components which are prone to exposure in high temperature and harsh environments require multiple layers. Whereas the lesser complex parts which are for decorative purposesare not prone to tough surroundings may require only a single layer. The multiple layer is projected to witness the highest gains due to the increased requirement from larger heavy-duty parts and components.
Aerospace Smart Coatings Market: By Region
