LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technavio analysts forecast the global ailerons market for commercial aircraft to be worth USD 2.25 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of close to 9% over the forecast period, according to their latest report.
“The advent of the fly-by-wire technology has automated the aircraft flight control surfaces. The integration of this technology has greatly reduced the weight of the aircraft and the complexity of aircraft manual controls”
The research study by Technavio on the global ailerons market for commercial aircraft for 2017-2021 provides a detailed industry analysis based on aircraft type (wide-body aircraft, narrow-body aircraft, and regional jets) and geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).
|Ailerons are the moveable control surfaces attached to the outboard trailing edge of each fixed-wing aircraft. Wide-body aircraft are the leading consumers of ailerons, generating over 47% of the overall market revenue. The need for new aircraft and replacement aircraft will drive the demand for ailerons from this market segment.|

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global ailerons market for commercial aircraft:
- Next-generation aircraft with fly-by-wire technology
- Growing focus on enhancing aerodynamic forces
- Advent of electric subsystems for controlling ailerons
Next-generation aircraft with fly-by-wire technology
“The advent of the fly-by-wire technology has automated the aircraft flight control surfaces. The integration of this technology has greatly reduced the weight of the aircraft and the complexity of aircraft manual controls,” says Avimanyu Basu, a lead analyst at Technavio for aerospace research.
The fly-by-wire technology has also paved the way for a greater degree of reliability, fuel efficiency, and safety of aircraft. Also, this technology enhances flight operation during turbulences, which further increases its adoption, thereby driving market growth.
Growing focus on enhancing aerodynamic forces
The aerodynamic forces acting on an aircraft dictates its performance, making optimal design and control of these forces a priority. The ailerons have a major impact on the primary control surface, providing the aircraft with rolling motion at specific angles depending on airflow.
Thrust generated by the aircraft is governed by the temperature, flow of air, aircraft maneuver, and weather, making it another crucial consideration for aerodynamics. Currently, vendors are investing towards the development of thrust management systems (TMSs) to ensure efficient aircraft movement to generate effective rolling motion. These developments are expected to drive market growth.
Advent of electric subsystems for controlling ailerons
“The aviation industry is widely adopting the data bus technology and motion control technology to ensure a smooth transfer of data within the aircraft. Currently, the commercial aircraft are shifting to electric subsystems to control the electric motors connected to the ailerons,” says Avimanyu.
Transceivers, microprocessor interface components, and line drivers are used to pass the information from the data bus to various aircraft components. Such motor drive components have been installed in business jets and also in wide-body aircraft to control the motion of aircraft and ailerons.
