Mechanical Control Cables Market for Military and Aerospace Report


Mechanical Control Cables Market for military and aerospace applications is projected to be valued at USD 18.42 Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 11.4% during the forecast period, 2019–2026.


Mechanical control cables are increasingly being used in the military and aerospace industry. The mechanical control cables are known as the cables that offer a push-pull or other action in order to activate the different components mechanically. These cables have a mechanical cable that comes with attached forks, eyes, handles, studs, and other essential fittings. 


On the basis of employed motion type, the mechanical control cables are categorized as push-pull mechanical control cables or pull-pull mechanical control cables. The push-pull mechanical control cables facilitate compression to push motion in one direction, and tension pulls motion in the other direction. The push-pull cables can serve as replacements in pneumatic, hydraulic, and electrical control systems. 


The increase in the manufacturing of defense and military aircraft is likely to propel the mechanical control cables market for military and aerospace growth. The mechanical control cables find use in the flight control system and landing gears of aircraft. It helps in ensuring precise control of the aircraft. Mechanical control cables, when incorporated in automobiles, can perform a number of tasks such as brake engagement, engine choke, power take-off management, drive management, speed selection, throttle control, and clutch management. The adoption of mechanical control cables in military vehicles will increase efficiency and ensure precision control. The global mechanical control cables market for military and aerospace size is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
