Market Driver

Grave Safety Risks Posed by Conventional Landing Gear to Create New Growth Opportunities

Conventional landing gear, or tailwheels, consist of two wheels placed in a forward position relative to the center of gravity. They have been the most widely used landing gear in traditional airplanes and some older aircraft models and small airplanes still use them. However, these landing gear systems are extremely dangerous, posing grave risks to the safety of everyone aboard the aircraft. For example, tailwheel aircrafts are prone to a phenomenon known as “ground looping”, which occurs when the tail of the aircraft bypasses the center of gravity, causing the pilot to lose directional control of the plane. Being smaller in size, tires attached to tailwheel units can drop into holes in the ground and cause the propeller to trip over. To counter these disadvantages, airliners are increasingly incorporating electrically-controlled landing gear and anti-skid brake management systems to enhance reliability, accuracy, and safety of the aircraft. This shift towards next-generation technologies is auguring well for the aircraft landing gear market growth.

Regional Analysis

North America to Hold Lion’s Share in the Market; Asia-Pacific to Showcase Impressive Growth

The market size in North America stood at USD 4.15 billion in 2018 and the region is foreseen to dominate the aircraft landing gear market share in the forthcoming years. The main reason attributable to the region’s dominance is the presence of well-established OEMs that are making large investments in advanced aviation technologies and coming out with new-age solutions. In Asia-Pacific, the market is expected to grow at an impressive rate owing to the increasing delivery and sale of commercial and low-cost carriers in China and India.
