Aerospace & defense: The largest end-use industry of the UD tapes market

UD tapes are used in various end-use industries, such as aerospace & defense, automotive, and sports & leisure. UD tapes are used in aircraft seat frames as they 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. In addition, the greater strength-to-weight capability of UD tapes allows for more efficient structural and aerodynamic designs. The rise in air passenger traffic across the globe has contributed to the increase in aircraft production. According to Bombardier, the aerospace industry in China is expected to undergo technological advancements in business jets, with a projected delivery of 950 advanced business jets by 2033. This will drive the UD tapes market.

Glass Fiber UD tapes: The largest segment of the UD tapes market, by fiber type

Glass fiber-based UD tapes are preferable as they provide a quick and affordable way to build parts & molds and also help in repairs. They are easy to handle, can be transformed into complex shapes, and withstand tough environmental conditions. Government regulations such as CAFÉ 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: The largest segment of the UD tapes market, by resin type

Thermoplastic UD tapes have a simple formulation with high melt viscosity. They can be easily shaped under sufficient heat and have the ability to maintain those shapes when cooled. Further, they retain their plasticity and can be reshaped by reheating them above their processing temperatures. Aircraft components such as seat elements, luggage bins, storage racks, floorings, and side panels are required to comply with industry and international regulations of the US Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR). These regulations mandate stringent FST and heat release characteristics for all cabin interior components, thus fueling the growth of thermoplastic resin UD tapes segment.

High demand from North America: The major driver for the UD tapes market

North America is the dominant player in the aerospace industry, providing growth opportunities to the aerospace adhesives industry. According to Boeing, there will be 7,290 airplane deliveries between 2014 and 2033 in North America. Bombardier (Canada) has projected that North America will be the largest market, in terms of new commercial aircraft deliveries with 3,650 aircraft deliveries from 2014 to 2033. In addition, the penetration of UD tapes in the aerospace & defense application is growing on account of stringent regulations to reduce the weight of airplanes to improve fuel efficiency. All these factors are bolstering the growth of the thermoplastic UD tapes segment in North America.

Key players profiled in the UD tapes market report include Royal TenCate N.V. (Netherlands), Cytec Solvay Group (US), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Teijin Ltd. (Japan), Hexcel Corporation (US), and Evonik industries (Germany).
