Key Market Trends

Commercial Aircraft Segment had the Highest Market Share in 2019

As of 2019, the commercial aircraft segment has the highest share in the market. The large share of the segment is primarily attributed to the high number of deliveries of commercial aircraft compared to the military. The cost of control surfaces for general aviation fixed-wing aircraft is less, due to the less average size and average manufacturing costs associated with the control surfaces in general aviation aircraft compared to those of the commercial aircraft. The deliveries of commercial aircraft are continually increasing. Boeing and Airbus, two commercial aviation giants, delivered more than 1600 commercial aircraft in 2018. Thus, the demand from the commercial segment is more in the year, making the segment brag the highest market share. 

Aircraft Control Surfaces Market_Application

Market in the Asia-Pacific Region to Witness the Highest CAGR in the Future

The aircraft control surfaces market is expected to witness high growth in the Asia-Pacific, mainly due to the growth in the aircraft procurements in the region. The region is projected to be the fastest-growing market in terms of the shipments of commercial, military, and general aviation aircraft altogether. China is expected to lead the growth of the aircraft control surfaces market in the region, followed by India. The two countries are the fastest-growing aviation markets in the world, coupled with the various aircraft fleet modernization programs, and the growing demand for general aviation aircraft in the region is fuelling the growth. Also, the region is benefitted by the growing indigenous manufacturing of aircraft, particularly in China and Japan. Aircraft models under development, like the Space Jet M90 and M100, Xian MA700, Comac C919, and CRAIG CR929, are expected to propel the growth in procurements of aircraft components like the control surfaces in the region. For C919, Xi'an Aircraft Company Limited supplies the control surfaces, whereas, for the Space Jet M90, Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC) is supplying the control surfaces. All these factors are projected to boost the market growth of the region in the future.

Aircraft Control Surfaces Market_Geography

Competitive Landscape

Triumph Group Inc., Magellan Aerospace Corp., Strata Manufacturing, The Boeing Company, and Airbus SE are some of the prominent players in the market. Aircraft manufacturers are welcoming innovations in control surface technologies that weigh lesser, reduce drag, and increase fuel savings, to increase their profitability on the whole. Hence, newer types of control surfaces with different materials and slight design changes are expected to be launched in the years to come. Initiatives like the focused factory initiative from Boeing, which aims at lowering the manufacturing costs, improving the quality, and increasing the delivery efficiencies, is helping the players to gain new contracts. In April 2019, Magellan Aerospace Corp. received a multi-year contract to manufacture the Boeing 777X control surface ribs, in support of Boeing's Focused Factory initiative.
