Global Commercial Aircraft Angle of Attack Sensors Market 2017-2021
About Commercial Aircraft Angle of Attack Sensors
The angle of attack (AoA) is the angle formed by the flight path and the chord of the airfoil of an aircraft. It is one of the important parameters considered while understanding airplane handling and performance. Moreover, an aircraft wing has a limited range of AoA over which it can perform effectively because the lift is a function of speed, wing area, air density, and AoA. At a given airspeed, the increase in lift occurs with an increase in AoA of the wing. Thus, at the same airspeed, a heavy aircraft of the same configuration should fly with a wider AoA than a lighter one.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft angle of attack sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 6.45% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Angle of Attack Sensors Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft angle of attack sensors market: Garmin, Honeywell International, Rockwell Collins, Thales, Transdigm, and United Technologies Corporation (UTC).
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AMETEK and Dynon Avionics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of sensor fusion technology. Sensor systems are gaining importance in new-generation aircraft. Collective information regarding load, temperature, pressure, and strain can provide detailed information on the health of aircraft components and indicate the defects in an early stage.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand for procurement of newer generation aircraft. Technological advancements in the aerospace industry have led to the development of fuel-efficient aircraft with decreased noise and carbon emission. Commercial aircraft manufacturers are facing high demand from airline operators for new-generation aircraft as these offer low-operational cost benefits. This demand will likely increase due to the growth in air travel in key countries such as China, India, Russia, and the US. The year-over-year growth in air traffic also essentialized the introduction of new aircraft to facilitate the demand. As all aircraft should be equipped with an AoA sensors, the market is expected to grow parallelly with an increase in demand.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is delay in aircraft delivery. The aviation industry is growing with increasing technological advancements and enhanced systems. Manufacturers of aircraft and component suppliers are under great pressure to meet the increased demand and rapid delivery times within budget constraints. Moreover, these factors have an impact on the quality. Major airlines are increasing their orders for new aircraft to cater to the increase in passenger traffic. Emerging economies such as the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and APAC are growing rapidly. This results in the development of new cities that requires greater mobility solutions such as air travel.
