Aircraft Actuator Market Size to Reach USD 16.98 Billion by 2026; Heavy Investments in the Development of Highly Advanced Actuators will Bode Well for the Market

April 02, 2020 | Aerospace & Defense

The global aircraft actuator market size is projected to reach USD 16.98 billion by the end of 2026. Recent technological advancements have played a huge part in the growth of the market in recent years. According to a report by Fortune Business Insights, titled “Aircraft Actuator Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Motion (Linear, Rotary), By Actuator Type (Hydraulic, Pneumatic, Electric, Electromechanical, Electrohydrostatic), By Platform (Fixed-Wing, Rotary-Wing), By Installation (Power Generation & Distribution System, Flight Control System, Fuel Management System, Landing Gear & Braking System, Passenger Comfort, and others), and Geography Forecast till 2026,” the market was worth USD 14.85 billion in 2018 and will exhibit a CAGR of 3.12% during the forecast period, 2019-2026.

An actuator is a component that is responsible for controlling the movement of any system in which it is used. Similarly, an aircraft actuator is a system that it used in power generators and fuel management systems and performs the same functions as an actuator. The ability of aircraft actuators to control the flow and motion of several systems in an aircraft has led to huge focus on developing products of the highest calibre and efficiency. Recent technological advancements have allowed improved product efficacies. Conventional hydraulic actuators are being replaced by electric systems, which in turn will lead to a wider product adoption across the world. The high investments in the development of electric aircraft actuators will emerge in favour of the growth of the market in the coming years.
