Elastomers are low-elastic-modulus materials that exhibit superior extensibility and durability when stressed but revert to their original dimensions when the deforming stress is withdrawn. Elastomers have very high elasticity, with elongation rates ranging from hundreds to thousands of percent. This makes elastomers ideal for applications requiring high elasticity and low stiffness. As a result, they're used in airplane gaskets, tires, and seals. Elastomers are used in a variety of aerospace components that involve close seals, such as window and door seals.

The rapid outbreak of coronavirus has had a significant effect on financial markets since the pandemic has placed the world's major economies on lockdown. As a result of this big lockdown, the entire consumer industry has abruptly lost confidence in buying certain products. The shutdown of all types of foreign transportation is one of the big challenges that the industry is facing. The market for aerospace and defense elastomers has slowed due to the global recession, which has been affected by declining demand in goods production and exports. COVID-19's Coronavirus epidemic in 2020 has affected the global economy and business situation in major sectors around the world. The global lockout has been hampered by supply-chain volatility, trade practices, industrial activities, and other events as a consequence of the pandemic scenario. The COVID-19 outbreak has put a stop to the majority of the aircraft industry. Fleet planning and reconstruction are crucial in dealing with the pandemic's risks. As a result of reduced servicing and inspection tests due to a decline in air passenger traffic and a drop in flight hours of various aircraft, demand for aerospace and defense elastomer has declined. The growth of the aerospace and defense elastomer industry has been slowed by a supply-demand mismatch induced by inventory supplies in OEM and MRO industries, as well as production units. Furthermore, due to lockdowns in various countries, aircraft deliveries in the first and second quarters of 2020 have been delayed, further reducing producer revenues. In terms of health protection and social distancing standards, manufacturers must satisfy the high expectations of airlines and passengers. The economy, on the other hand, is improving, and businesses have resumed operations with fewer resources and in accordance with government regulations. By 2021, end-use markets should be fully operational, resulting in a surge in demand for aircraft lubricants.

The increased demand for aerospace and defense elastomers from the aviation industry around the world is driving the development of the aerospace & defense elastomers market. Furthermore, increased demand for new aircraft from emerging nations such as India and China is expected to fuel the global aerospace and defense elastomer market.

Top Market Players

Some of the leading and key companies in the aerospace & defense elastomers market contain Shin-Etsu Chemical, Trelleborg, Greene Tweed, Dow Corning, Wacker Chemie AG, Chemours, Saint-Gobain, Momentive Performance Materials Inc., Lanxess, Solvay, Chenguang Fluoro & Silicone Elastomers Co., Ltd., 3M, Holland Shielding, Esterline, Polymod Technologies, Jonal Laboratories, Inc., Rogers Corporation, Quantum Silicones, Specialised Polymer Engineering, Seal Science, Inc, Technetics, Specialty Silicone Products, Unimatec, TRP Polymer Solutions Limited., and Zeon Chemicals, among others.

The industry has been driven by a surge in demand for new aircraft from developing economies. In military and commercial aviation, elastomer seals are often one of the last components to be listed or engineered. They're the indispensable filler that fills in holes between wing, fuselage, and door parts. However, elastomer seal technologies and designs are emerging as a result of shifting legislation on firestop testing standards and OEM demand to minimize aircraft weight. The demand for aerospace and defense elastomers is being driven by an increase in the rate of replacing existing aircraft with new ones around the world. The global aerospace and defense elastomers industry is expanding due to increased investments in research and development by aerospace and defense elastomers manufacturers in order to implement new, cost-effective, high-efficiency elastomers. Despite the positive development, the aerospace industry is cyclic, with each cycle repeating every ten years, making the sector vulnerable to the changing global environment. The high cost of raw materials has a negative impact on the growth of the aerospace & defense elastomers market. Technological developments in elastomers expected to increase the global aerospace & defense elastomers market's growth prospects.
