Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The increasing growth of the commercial aviation industry is the chief driving factor pushing the industry growth in the forecast period. The rising public inclination toward the aviation industry and growing government expenditure on airplane development are other major factors propelling the industry demand. Additionally, rising technological investment towards the infrastructure improvement of the aerospace sector is a significant factor bolstering the industry growth during the forecast period. Rising government activities, funds, and development activities are driving the aircraft landing gear market demand with a beneficial growth rate in the coming years.

According to Airport Business in 2020, the UK aviation minister announced £30 million (€35m) for the departure lounge construction at Birmingham Airport. It will serve more than one million passengers every month, so it is designed with state-of-the-art infrastructure and world-class facilities, including high-security alerts. In addition to this, according to the Australian government department of home affairs, in 2018, the government provided USD 50.1 million in funding to regional airports to assist with security upgrades. As a result, the rising government expenditure on the aviation industry pushes the aircraft landing gear market growth throughout the forecast period.

Insight by Type

The main landing gear segment is leading the segment in 2021 with the largest revenue generation, and it is anticipated to dominate the industry expansion in the projected period. The segment is rising due to the need for minimum volume, high-performance minimum weight, and improved life of gear systems. The threat of increasing accidents pushes the industry demand toward adopting airplane landing gear systems in the coming years.

For instance, according to the wire in 2020, the hazards caused by airplane accidents are huge and more dangerous. It is found that around 40 accidents were taken place related to airplanes. It includes ten commercials, fatal, and others. Therefore, the threat of airplane accidents is rising, enhancing airplane focus on developing improved aviation infrastructure, pushing the industry growth.

The nose gear segment is projected to exhibit a progressive growth rate in the forecast period. The segment demand is expected to rise due to factors such as the rising requirement for a supportive gear system due to heavy and loaded airplanes. The nose gear provides a suspension system during takeoff, landing, and taxi. It absorbs the kinetic energy of the landing impact and reduces the loads transmitted to the airframe. Additionally, stringent government regulations towards aviation safety enhance industry growth.

For instance, according to the Airport Authority of India, in 2021, The government of India implementing strict laws towards the security of airports (aviation) which includes technological and other improvements, mobile check-in counters, improvement in cargo terminals, reduction in bunching of flights, and contracting out of operating, the introduction of better systems of passenger transfer between terminals and maintenance facilities, and many other. Thereby, these factors are surging the segment demand in the projected period.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America accounted for the largest revenue share in the global industry. The increasing orders and aircraft sales across the region is the primary factor driving the industry growth. Moreover, various industry players across the region are the key factor driving the industry growth. It includes Collins Aerospace (US), Triumph Group (US), Crane Co. (US), Boeing, Bombardier Inc, and Parker Hannifin (US). These factors are propelling the demand for aircraft, which, in turn, augments the market growth across North America.

Moreover, the European market is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR over the years due to the increasing disposable income and rising public inclination towards aerospace. The expansion of companies across the region is bolstering the market growth across the region. It includes Airbus, Leonardo, Spa, and Safran SA. For instance, according to GOV. In the UK in 2017, new ways for detecting explosive devices concealed in electrical items were developed with a considerable investment of approximately £3 million. And this technological development enhances the surveillance and monitoring of explosive detection. Therefore, with the rising government spending, the market is expected to grow.
