Global Commercial Aircraft Carbon Brakes Market 2017-2021
About Commercial Aircraft Carbon Brakes
Aircraft brakes systems are an integral part of aircraft landing gear systems that support the weight of the entire aircraft during landing and ground operations. The design of landing gears is highly proportional to the size of an aircraft. Aircraft braking system comprises disk brakes that can be operated pneumatically or hydraulically. Mostly, there are two types of brakes used in commercial aircraft: steel brakes and carbon brakes. Carbon brakes became operational in the 1980s, and since then, most commercial airlines have preferred using this type of brakes over steel brakes due to their lighter weight and longer endurance attributes. However, carbon brakes are much costlier than conventional steel brakes.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft carbon brakes market to grow at a CAGR of 11.55% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial aircraft carbon brakes market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Carbon Brakes Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft carbon brakes market: Honeywell International, Meggitt, Safran, and UNITED TECHNOLOGIES.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is preference for electric taxing system. With the growing concerns over high carbon dioxide emission levels worldwide, the aviation industry is proceeding toward green aircraft taxiing systems. The operation of aircraft taxiing involves the movement of aircraft on the ground under its own power, which requires a significant amount of fuel. An Airbus A320 aircraft consumes approximately 600 liters of fuel during taxiing for an average of 3.5 hours a day.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increased preference for reducing operational and maintenance costs of airlines. The reduction in operational and maintenance costs can become vital for airlines in terms of enhancing their overall revenue. Airlines have been undertaking various innovative approaches to deter the increasing cost of aviation operations. In line with that, airlines are also opting for new-generation aircraft that can help in the reduction in overall operating and maintenance costs. As the number of operating fleets are rising with every passing year, the specifications for ensuring adequate safety standards are also becoming more complex.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technical constraints in operating carbon brakes. Owing to their advantageous features, carbon brakes are being commonly used in the aviation industry. Such brakes are lighter in weight than the conventional steel brakes, as well as feature superior heat-absorbing capacities. However, there are certain limitations that can reduce the adoption of carbon brakes. The entire production and integration process of carbon brakes is much more expensive than steel brakes. The manufacturing of such brakes involves complex stages that can delay the delivery cycle of brakes. Also, the initial cost association for manufacture and overhauling carbon brakes is higher than its counterparts.
