Covid Impact

Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain of every possible market one can think of. The revenues for many, have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operations and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

Segmentation –

This report studies the Aircraft Composite Control Surfaces Market and has segmented the market in a few ways, keeping in mind the concentration of all the stakeholders across the value chain. Following are the ways in which the market has been segmented in the report:

Based on the fiber type, the aircraft composite control surfaces market is segmented as carbon fiber composites and glass fiber composites. Carbon fiber is expected to remain the most preferred material for fabricating control surface parts in the foreseen future. Lightweight, high strength, smooth finish, stiffness and rigidity, good resistance to fatigue and fire, and low coefficient of thermal expansion are some key properties of carbon fibers, making them the preferred fiber type for aircraft control surfaces.

Based on the resin type, the market is segmented as epoxy composites and other composites. Epoxy is a predominantly used resin type and holds a giant share of the market. Epoxy is preferably used with carbon fiber to fabricate composite parts for high-performance applications. Epoxy is not only used to fabricate composite control surface parts but also to fabricate other crucial aerospace composite parts. Thermoplastics, such as PPS and PEEK, are also gaining some traction in the market, especially in rudder and elevators. These thermoplastic composite parts are excessively used in assembly parts such as cleats and clips. 

Based on the type, the aircraft composite control surfaces market is segmented as primary control surfaces (ailerons, rudders, and elevators), and secondary control surfaces (spoilers, flaps, and air brakes)]. Aileron is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing control surface type during the forecast period. Ailerons are the important control surface used in pairs to control roll about the longitudinal axis. Flap is likely to remain the second-dominant segment till 2026. It has its importance at the time of take-off and landing. It generates more lift at a slower airspeed which enables the aircraft to fly at a greatly reduced speed with a lower risk of stalling.

In terms of regions, North America is expected to maintain its vanguard in the market during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market with the presence of major aircraft OEMs, tier players, composite aircraft control surface suppliers, and airlines. Asia-Pacific will witness the highest growth during the forecast period with China, Japan, and India being the major markets in the region.

The following are the key players in the Aircraft Composite Control Surfaces Market:

  • Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.
  • Triumph Group Inc.
  • GKN Aerospace (A Melrose Company)
  • Boeing Aerostructures Australia
  • Aernnova Aerospace S.A.
  • Harbin Hafei Airbus Composite Manufacturing Centre
  • CTRM (CTRM Aerocomposites Sdn Bhd)
  • Turkish Aerospace
