The aircraft actuator market was valued at USD 10.30 Billion in 2015 and USD 20.13 Billion by 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2016 and 2022. The base year used for this study is 2015 and the forecast period is from 2016 to 2022. This report provides a detailed analysis of the aircraft actuator market based on component, aircraft type, and application. It has been estimated that the power generation application would hold a large share of the aircraft actuator market. However, the market for health monitoring systems is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The global aerospace industry is set for extraordinary growth over the next generation, driven by the demand in emerging markets. Continued economic growth, increasing urbanization, a growing middle class population, rising international students, tourists, and migrants; flourishing trade among nations, liberalization, and bilateral air service agreements are just some of the factors that are set to increase the global connectivity. The growth of the aerospace industry will directly impact and drive the aircraft actuator market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the aircraft actuator market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global aircraft actuator market from the revenue of the key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, Directors, and executives.

The aircraft actuator market was valued at USD 10.30 Billion in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2016 and 2022. The actuators and electronic components market growth can be directly linked with the growth of the commercial aviation industry. The most significant factor driving the aircraft actuator market is the increasing demand for commercial aircraft globally. Major factors responsible for this growth are growing urban population, rise in the per capita income, emerging economies, hectic lifestyles and the need for time saving, and increased demand from developing countries. The growing trend of more electric aircraft (MEA) is the other factor driving the growth of the aircraft actuator market. Developments in fault-tolerant architecture, electro-hydrostatic actuators, primary and secondary flight control systems, power generation and conversion systems, and high-density electric motors are strengthening the concept of MEA.

The demand to increase the safety associated with air travel has boosted the demand for health monitoring systems. Health monitoring system followed by power generation system and power distribution system are the fastest-growing application sectors of the aircraft actuator market. The increasing trend to adopt the MEA concept has resulted in an increasing number of electronic components replacing the traditional mechanical or hydraulic components. This has resulted in increased power requirement by various electronic components, further increasing the demand for power generation systems and power distribution systems.

Aircraft Actuator Market

Electrical and mechanical components held the largest share of the overall component market in 2015; this market is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly because electrical and mechanical components are part of all big and small applications in a commercial aircraft.

Narrow body aircraft had the largest market for commercial aviation. The rapid growth in the aviation sector in emerging economies has created a huge market for low-cost aviation carriers and narrow body aircraft are widely preferred for domestic as well as international routes.

Factors such as rapid technological upgrades and stringent regulatory framework are challenges for the aircraft actuator market. The equipment that is built by manufacturers tends to have long life cycles that outlast the life spans of semiconductors and other components that are critical to those systems. This is forcing OEMs to change their design of equipment which involves lots of R&D, cost, and time. Moreover, regulatory compliance is also a major factor behind the current wave of innovation. With rapid technological advancements going on in the sector and new technologies and products replacing the old ones every five to seven years, it is becoming a challenge for the component and system manufacturers to adhere to the regulatory environment.

UTC Aerospace Systems (U.S.) and Honeywell Aerospace, Inc. (U.S.) are two major players in the aircraft actuator market. The companies heavily invest in research and development activities and introduce new products to stay ahead in the market.
