The Commercial Aerospace Fasteners Market currently holds around 60% of the total market, and is expected to reach 62% in the forecast period. The major reason for the growth in the market share of the commercial aerospace sector would be the boom in the aviation sector and demand for newer fleets in the Asia Pacific region. Unlike the North American and European region which are extremely well connected by air, most countries in the Asia Pacific region have limited connectivity. Much of it has got to do with limited infrastructure, and air traffic. But due to the rising disposable incomes in the region, air travel is becoming increasingly popular. Asia Pacific as a result controls the highest share in the orders for jets in the forecast period. The Asia Pacific region will also account for increased defense spending which will boost the fasteners market.
