Aircraft Wheels and Brakes Market Trends



  • Growing modern technological progress is driving the market growth.


Market CAGR for aircraft wheels and brakes is driven by the significant increase worldwide, and airlines are placing orders for brand-new planes loaded with the latest innovations in aviation technology. The aerospace industry designs planes with cutting-edge technologies and components in response to airline demand. There has been a shift toward using electric brakes and fiber-reinforced plastic wheels on airplanes because of their many advantages over traditional aircraft brake systems, such as lower fuel costs and fewer greenhouse gas emissions from the lighter planes. Installation and maintenance of these brake systems are straightforward, making retrofitting an easier prospect for aviation MRO service providers. This increase in the demand for new airplanes would directly affect aircraft brake and wheel system sales.


Additionally, electric brake systems facilitate airplane operations by incorporating high-tech functions like continuous monitoring of carbon disk wear and instantaneous data transmission to the cockpit. Brakes with an anti-oxidation coating last longer and are safer for de-icing agents. Several versions of military aircraft utilize electric brakes extensively, but the B787 Dreamliner is the only model of commercial aircraft to use electronic brakes. Its popularity among aircraft makers can be attributed to its cutting-edge capabilities, such as real-time evaluation reporting and data transmission. Because of these advantages, electric brake systems will rise rapidly in popularity in the aviation wheels and brakes industry shortly. Several companies focus on creating fiber-reinforced plastic wheels, spurring conceptual innovations in the aircraft wheel production sector. Wheels take the brunt of the aircraft's dynamic and thermal loads during takeoff and landing. Hence several parties are looking into alternatives to aluminum and magnesium as production raw materials. As a result, carbon fiber-reinforced plastic wheels are becoming increasingly popular in the aerospace industry.


For instance, Boeing, the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology (KEIT), and the Korea Institute for the Advancement of Technology (KIAT) have agreed to work together on developing cutting-edge production systems for the Korean aerospace industry. It includes commercial aircraft production, urban air mobility, aerospace semiconductors, and the development of local talent. As a result, the demand for aircraft wheels and brakes is anticipated to increase throughout the projection period due to the rising facilities. Thus, the driving factor is aircraft wheels and brakes market revenue.


Aircraft Wheels and Brakes Market Segment Insights


Aircraft Wheels and Brakes Wheel Type Insights


The aircraft wheels and brakes market segmentation, based on wheel type, includes nose wheel and main landing gear wheel. In 2022, the main landing gear wheel segment led the aircraft wheels and brakes market in revenue because airplanes rely heavily on their primary landing gear wheel during parking, taxiing, takeoff, and landing.


Aircraft Wheels and Brakes Brake Type Insights


The aircraft wheels and brakes market segmentation, based on brake type, includes carbon brake and steel brake. The carbon brake segment is expected to develop at a CAGR of 7.30% over the projected period, making up the largest market share due to the energy absorption capacity of carbon brakes being higher than that of steel brakes.
