The growing market for UAV generating demand for aerospace materials

UAV (drone) applications in the military have matured, becoming a key asset in military organizations worldwide. However, the civil and commercial market for UAVs is in its incipient phases with significant unrealized potential in a wide number of applications. Military expenditure for UAV technology is anticipated to grow as a total percentage of military budgets, offering growth opportunities to specialized drone manufacturers and software developers. Thus, with growing demand for UAV is further expected to drive the market growth in the near future.

Increasing demand for general and commercial aircraft

General and commercial aircraft are used for various purposes, including civil aviation (both private and commercial) and passenger and freight transportation. Single-aisle aircraft are mainly used for commercial purposes. According to Boeing, 32,270 units of single-aisle aircraft (narrow-body aircraft) will be delivered globally in the next 20 years, which may increase the demand for aerospace materials in the coming years. Many operators have plans to replace their existing fleet to cater to the growing consumer demand in developed economies. Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to significantly impact the market in the coming years.
