Impact of COVID-19 on UD Tapes Market

The novel coronavirus pandemic had created ripples across the global aerospace industry, affecting the global supply chains, which move materials and components rapidly across borders and fabrication facilities. This had resulted in delays or non-arrival of raw materials, disrupted financial flows, and growing absenteeism among production line workers. These factors have affected the world’s biggest commercial aircraft providers, Boeing and Airbus, and their constellation of suppliers. Boeing did not have any orders in January 2020. Airbus also had zero orders in February 2020. The loss of the aerospace & defense industry had directly affected the UD tapes market as it is a major end-use industry of UD tapes.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Increase in the use of UD tapes in primary & secondary aircraft structures

Vehicle weight reduction and increased fuel efficiency are the major factors driving the use of UD tapes in the aerospace & defense industry. The greater strength-to-weight capability of UD tapes allows for more efficient structural and aerodynamic designs. UD tapes offer high fatigue tolerance and improve the strength of structural components, thereby enabling the manufacturing of bigger passenger windows and lower cabin altitude than conventional jetliners.

The rise in air passenger traffic across the globe has contributed to an increase in aircraft production. The demand for new aircraft is expected to gradually shift from developed to emerging markets, such as APAC, South America, and Africa. In the commercial aerospace sector, North America is expected to witness the highest commercial aircraft deliveries, followed by Europe, APAC, South America, and the Middle East.

Carbon fiber-based UD tapes are mostly preferred in aircraft due to their high strength and stiffness. Unidirectional tapes can also be silt easily without losing its strength, which is not possible in the case of woven tapes and fabrics. The major applications of UD tapes are fixed wing fuselage, drive shafts, wing spars, wing skins, cargo floor panels, fan blades, tail booms, rib stiffeners, conduit, brackets, and others. There has been a paradigm shift in aircraft design by Boeing and Airbus, with composites now being considered for primary structures of all wide-bodied aircraft. Owing to the increasing use of composites in aircraft manufacturing, the demand for UD tapes is rapidly increasing.

Restraint: Issues related to recyclability

Globally, companies are trying to reduce the effect of global warming and explore the potential of UD tapes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the difficulty of recycling glass fiber is a stumbling block, especially in the construction and automotive sectors, where the pressure to recycle is high.

The European Composites Industry Association (EUCIA) states that glass-fiber reinforced plastic and carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic are recyclable and compliant with the European Union (EU) legislation and with the stringent regulations of the US. Currently, recycling facilities for composites exist only in Germany; hence, for companies in other countries, it is prohibitively expensive and not environment-friendly as it involves significant expenses to transport the products for recycling.

Opportunity: Increasing use of UD tapes in new applications

UD tapes are emerging as a class of materials that possess superior properties. These materials have very high stiffness, lower weight, high abrasion, and wear resistance. The use of these materials is increasing in medical, construction & infrastructure, and other industries. In the medical industry, the use of UD tapes is increasing in the manufacturing of prosthetic parts, such as wheelchair frame, artificial limbs, and exoskeleton construction for limbs. The use of UD tapes is also increasing rapidly in localized reinforcement, repairs, and seam taping of concrete parts in the construction industry. These tapes are also used for the manufacturing of tubular products through the filament winding process in the pipe & tank industry.

Challenge: High manufacturing and processing costs of UD tapes

The high cost of UD tapes has posed as a hurdle to its expansion into structural applications of various industries. The real potential of UD tapes has not yet been realized owing to the R&D costs, high manufacturing costs, and increased cycle times. Many new applications of UD tapes have been discovered, but due to high-cost constraints, commercialization in these applications is yet to begin. The high R&D, manufacturing, and processing costs are a major challenge for the key players to manufacture cost-effective products in the market.

Glass fiber is estimated to account for the largest share of the UD tapes market during the forecast period

Glass fiber segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the UD tapes market during the forecast period. Glass fiber UD tapes are easy to process and manufacture as compared to carbon fiber, which are very difficult to process. Glass fiber-based UD tapes are preferable over carbon fiber UD tapes as they provide a quick and affordable way to build parts & molds and make repairs. Government regulations such as CAFΙ Standards in the US and carbon emission targets in Europe are putting pressure on automotive OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to reduce the overall vehicle weight. Such factors are the key drivers for the glass fiber UD tapes market.

Thermoplastic UD tapes to be the fastest-growing resin segment of the UD tapes market during the forecast period.

Thermoplastic UD tapes is expected to be the largest segment, by resin, during the forecast period. Thermoplastic UD tapes are used in a large number of industries, including aerospace & defense and sports & leisure. These are widely used in the aerospace & defense industry due to their toughness, high strength, moisture absorption resistance, high performance properties, and ability to survive under high temperature conditions.

The aerospace & defense segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing end-use industry of the UD tapes market during the forecast period.

Based on end-use industry, the aerospace & defense segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the UD tapes market during the forecast period. UD tapes are used in aircraft seat frames as they help reduce the weight of aircraft seats by 30% in comparison to traditional aluminum frame seats. They are also used in lightweight sandwich panels for ultralight aircraft. According to Airbus, there will be a global increase in the aircraft demand; for 28,200 new built freighters and passenger aircraft between 2012 and 2031. This increased aircraft demand includes the demand from the developing markets, such as APAC, South America, and Africa. This will drive the demand for UD tapes in the aerospace & defense industry.

North America to account for the largest share of the global UD tapes market during the forecast period.

The North America UD tapes market is expected to witness strong growth in the next five years. The demand for lightweight, fuel-efficient aircraft is increasing, which will drive the demand for UD tapes in the aerospace & defense industry. The launch of new aircraft such as Boeing 777x and China’s indigenously build aircraft Comac C919 is also expected to drive the demand for UD tapes in the near future. UD tapes are also used in lightweight sandwich panels for ultralight aircraft. These factors will drive the demand for UD tapes.

Europe to account for the second-largest share of the global UD tapes during the forecast period.

Europe is the second-largest market for UD tapes. The growth of end-use industries is driving the UD tapes market in the region. France accounted for the maximum market share in terms of value in 2020. France provides the lowest business setup costs in terms of facility costs, utility costs, transport, and corporate taxes. Germany is the leading automotive market in terms of production and sales in Europe. OEMs are constantly challenged by government regulations to increase fuel efficiency and decrease carbon emissions by using lightweight materials such as UD tapes. This has turned the focus of automotive OEMs to use carbon and glass fiber UD tapes for structural parts of passenger cars and high-utility vehicles. Thus, the UD tapes manufacturers stand a good chance to penetrate the automotive sector in Germany.
