In this report, Technavio highlights the additive manufacturing for engine components as one of the key emerging trends driving the global aircraft engine nacelle market:

Additive manufacturing for engine components

Additive manufacturing, which is also known as 3D printing, is a process where successive layers of materials are added either in the form of powder or liquid and are solidified with the help of a heat source to produce an object. This process helps manufacturers to produce complex designs. 3D printing process enables manufacturers to produce lightweight components. The additive manufacturing process allows cost-effective and easy manufacture of parts and components and allows quick designs and rapid alteration of internal features of the components. This is not possible with traditional manufacturing methods. At the same time, nacelle manufacturers are also adopting additive manufacturing techniques to develop parts and components.

“The implementation of 3D printing in the aerospace industry can ensure a reduction in assembly time, material wastage, and general costs. Adopting 3D printing in aerospace manufacturing will reflect long-term sustainability while guaranteeing upgrades in the overall performance of an aircraft. Additive manufacturing is being adopted by several engine manufacturers to produce engine components,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on aerospace products.
