Additive Manufacturing of Aerospace Valves: A Growing Trend

The pervasive influence of technology has influenced the aerospace industry, where newer and better prototyping & manufacturing techniques are set to change the way production is carried out. One of these is additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, which has gradually become popular for the manufacturing of components, including valves, in the aerospace industry. Players are increasingly leveraging this process to reduce development time and part weight, and increasing the operational efficiency of the product.

The 3D printing process is being seen as a crucial technology, the adoption and use of which is likely to shape the evolution of the industry itself. For instance, in June 2019, Eaton, a leading player in the global aerospace landscape, announced the use of additive printing for the manufacturing of aluminium housing and valves for the ram air valve assembly.

Fluctuating Raw Material Prices Negatively Impacting Growth

According to this study on the global aerospace valves market, the fluctuating costs of raw materials required for the production of valves, along with the high costs of research & development, are having a significant impact on the landscape. This has resulted in manufacturers in the aerospace valves market being unable to meet the increasing demand from end users, which is expected to have a negative impact on the growth of the market. The dearth of raw materials has also led to a slowdown in the innovation of aerospace valves, which is also expected to negatively impact the expansion of the landscape.
