Flight Control System industry – Market Overview
The flight control systems are operated by the pilot to control the direction, attitude, and forces of flight. It consists of primary and secondary systems. While ailerons, elevators, and rudder constitute the primary control system and are required to control the aircraft for safe flight, wing flaps, spoilers, leading edge devices, and trim systems constitute the secondary control system and functions to enhance the performance of the airplane and relieve the pilot of excessive control forces.
Flight Control System industry – Competitive Analysis
The market is highly fragmented with a limited number of large- and small-sized players between whom the competition is intense. Most vendors operate across product lines and offer products to multiple industries, whereas other vendors deal with more niche segments and provide only a limited number of products to the defense industry. Vendors have started to shift their manufacturing bases to APAC for greater cost-effectiveness. In addition, the need for an enhanced response time is expected to gain increased market traction during the forecast period. This drives the vendors to acquire or set up manufacturing facilities in APAC. The need for higher revenue and customer base expansion has forced global players to enter into alliances with local players to adequately serve the end users.
The leading market players in the global Flight Control System industry primarily include Honeywell International, Inc. (U.S.), Safran S.A. (France), Liebherr Group (Switzerland), BAE Systems plc. (U.S.), Moog Incorporation (U.S.), United Technologies Corporation (U.S.), Rockwell Collins, Inc (U.S.), Nabtesco Corporation (Japan), Parker Hannifin Corp. (U.S), West Star Aviation, Inc.(U.S).
