Global Aerospace Maintenance Chemical Market to Reach Newer Heights with Rising Air Travellers Worldwide

Along with the research, design, manufacture, and flight operations of aircrafts, the aerospace industry is also responsible to sustain the hygiene and maintenance of aircrafts. Aircraft maintenance comprises all the tasks essential to ensure the smooth functioning, safety, and hygiene of an aircraft or aircraft’s part. Aerospace maintenance chemicals are a key player in maintaining the smooth functioning of aircraft maintenance services. In the recent years, the number of air travellers in developed and emerging nations is mounting, which is fuelling the demand for innovative aerospace maintenance chemicals in the aerospace sector.

Aerospace maintenance chemicals are cleaning agents used for the maintaining the operational proficiency of the airplanes. They are used as cleaners, paint strippers, degreasers, paint removers, and aeroplane washers & polishers. These chemicals keep an aircraft corrosion-free and clean it inside-out. Aerospace maintenance chemicals primarily comprise paint removers, brighteners, specialty solvents, and many more. In addition, these chemicals are used in brake cleaning, leather cleaning, paint removing, and other application areas.

For instance,

  • In April 2020, Clay Lacy Aviation, a leader in private aviation, announce to offer all-inclusive aircraft cleaning as well as disinfecting services at the maintenance centres of the company and through its mobile response teams.
  • In June 2020, Honeywell, a global front-runner in offering smart building solutions for sectors including aerospace, manufacturing, defence, etc., launched an ultraviolet cleaning (UVC) system for airlines to considerably reduce certain viruses and bacteria on aircrafts’ cabin surfaces.
  • In January 2021, Air India Express, an Indian low-cost airline, began using robotic technology to clean and sanitize the interiors of an aircraft at the Delhi airport. The carrier joined hands with AISATS, a ground handling agency, to launch the technology in the Indian markets.

COVID-19 Impact on the Market

The abrupt rise of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has adversely impacted the global aerospace maintenance chemical market. During the lockdown period, people had restricted themselves from traveling due to the implementation of lockdowns across the world and the fear of acquiring COVID-19 infection. This significantly dropped the number of air travellers during the pandemic. Also, various airlines were forced to stop operations to curb the spread of the virus. Thus, the aviation industry was completely shut down during the pandemic, which considerably dropped the demand for chemicals used in aircraft cleaning & maintenance services. All these factors hindered the aerospace maintenance chemical market growth during the pandemic.

However, with the relaxation of the pandemic since the end of 2021, many airlines have resumed their normal functioning, which is expected to propel the growth of the aerospace maintenance chemical market in the upcoming years.
