Market Scenario


A military aircraft actuation system aids in extension and retraction of landing gears, monitoring, and controlling velocity and controlling engine speed by adjusting levers and flaps. Different sources of energy such as electricity, hydraulic fluid pressure, or pneumatic pressure, which convert energy into motion, are used to operate the actuation systems. Moreover, rising investment in research and development will boost the market growth. The growing demand for automation and increasing number of combat aircraft are estimated to gain higher popularity during the forecast period.


Factors such as focus on upgrading in aging military aircraft and increased use of combat aircraft in military missions are positively impacting the military aircraft actuation systems market growth. In addition, the rise in defense expenditure, especially in developing countries and subsequent demand for new combat and trainer aircraft further boosts the market growth. However, the leakage issues associated with hydraulic actuators hinders market growth to a certain extent. Meanwhile, rising terrorist attacks and focus on counter operations create promising growth opportunities for the military aircraft actuation systems market.


The market is segmented by type, application, aircraft and region. Based on type, the military aircraft actuation systems market is divided into hydraulic and electric & others. During the forecast period, the electric segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR as it features various beneficial characteristics such as energy savings, low investment costs, high power density and power capacity, fail-safe functionality, and easy integration into existing infrastructure. Based on aircraft, the military aircraft actuation systems market is divided into combat aircraft and non-combat aircraft. In 2017, the combat aircraft segment accounted for the largest market share owing to the increase in production and procurement of fighter aircraft worldwide in order to enhance the military strength. Based on application, the military aircraft actuation systems market is divided into flight control system, landing gear system, other systems. In 2017, the flight control system segment accounted for the largest market share as it requires many actuators compared to other applications.
