Military Aircraft Actuation Systems Market Trends

ID: MRFR//0966-CR | 103 Pages | Author: Swapnil Palwe| October 2016

Military Aircraft Actuation Systems Market Overview 

Military Aircraft Actuation Systems Market size was valued at 6.53 Billion in 2022. The Military Aircraft Actuation Systems industry is projected to grow 13.26 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.20% during the forecast period (2022 - 2032).

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.

Military Aircraft Actuation Systems Market  Segmentation 

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.

Military Aircraft Actuation Systems Market, Regional Overview

North America is the leading region for the global military aircraft actuation systems market. Several major combat aircraft manufacturers (such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman) and actuation system providers (such as UTC, Honeywell) are present in the region, gaining the region a high market share. Moreover, US military is likely to receive USD 674 billion in support in 2019 for new destroyers, fighter jets, Black Hawk helicopters, among others, which indirectly influences the military aircraft actuation systems in this region.
