According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Commercial Aircraft Landing Gear Market is accounted for $18.49 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $26.52 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. Commercial aircraft landing gear is the under carriage of a aircraft or spacecraft that is used for either take-off or landing. When the aircraft is not flying the landing gear supports the craft, thereby allowing it to land, take-off and taxi without any damage. It provide a suspension system to the aircraft during taxiing, take-off, and landing, while also facilitating braking and direction control through the provisions of integrating supportive systems for the aircraft. Generally wheels are used which floats, skids, skis and combination of these and other elements are arrayed depending upon the surface and on whether the craft operates vertically only or is likely to taxi along the surface. It supports the complete load of an air craft in the course of ground operations and landing.

Alliance Airlines received USD 60 million in jobs and regional growth funding to organize a new MRO facility at Rockhampton. This will generate spur new opportunities for avionics, wheels, tires, brakes and landing gear, and cabin accessories suppliers and vendors in the supply chain. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), with optimization of benefits and sustained growth, there is a requirement for modernized air transport facilities along with infrastructure. In 2019, there were nearly 423 new airports under construction or planned, out of which around 220 projects are in Asia Pacific and 58 are in Europe. Additionally, China plans to construct around 200 airports by the end of 2035. According to the Australian government department of home affairs, in 2018, the government provided USD 50.1 million in funding to regional airports to assist with security upgrades.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Need for light aircraft with improved light-weighted systems

Airlines are focusing on building intelligent fleets that give future network suppleness, maximizing ability as minimizing peril, and recuperating effectiveness and sustainability. In most conservative aircraft today, the landing gear is extended and retracted using power drawn from complex, federal, and heavy hydraulic systems that also power many of the aircraft’s flight control surfaces. Technology is being developed by clean sky’s advanced landing gear systems project called the electro-hydrostatic actuation, which allows landing gears to be activated and retracted using a more localized and more electrical solution that saves weight, consumes less power, and generates less heat and noise in the process. The project is spearheaded by Liebherr and Safran. As part of this project, developments are being made in the enclosure of electrically driven landing gear wheels for electric taxiing, additional enabling a quieter, cleaner, and more efficient movement of aircraft. This is an extension of the direct drive system that requires aircraft engines to be turned off during taxiing, which further reduces emissions.

Restraint:

Safety concerns related to landing gear systems

In the aircraft industry, security of passenger is the maximum precedence for the airline operators. Landing gear systems includes a numeral of system components and parts.  A minor mistake by the squad or engineering team in the implementation of this gear can lead to major aircraft disasters. Recently, there have been a few airplane accidents, mostly at the time of aircraft landing, which has reiterated the risks surrounding these types of gear systems. For example, in May 2021, an air ambulance had to make an emergency landing at the Mumbai airport after its wheel got separated during takeoff from the Nagpur airport. Jet Serve Aviation’s C-90 VT-JIL aircraft effectively made an emergency landing, with both the squad and patient experiencing not harm. Landing gear deployment failure incidents have led manufacturers to improve gear designs in order to avert such mishaps. 

Opportunity:

New materials and technologies used to increase efficiency

Developments are being made for titanium materials and lighter composites to decrease the heaviness of landing system structures. For example, Safran has pioneered the prologue of carbon brakes that have helped decrease the weight of aircraft and lessen emissions. Electric brakes and technologies are also being adopted to observe the wear and tear of landing gear systems to additional augment efficiency and enhance service monitoring of landing system equipment. Developments are being undertaken to replace large, conservative hydraulic systems landing systems with electrically integrated systems to lessen weight and augment efficiency. Safran is currently working on an electric taxiing program to be directly included into the next generation of short and medium-haul aircraft. This could assist decrease fuel costs by 4%, augment on-time takeoffs, and reduce emissions and noise.
 
Threat:

Manufacturing challenges faced by OEMs and MRO organiza tions

Commercial aircraft landing gear systems are one of the most decisive components of aircraft. Designing and manufacturing landing gear offers numerous challenges. This must be completed as maintaining regulatory and safety requirements. This gear manufacturing entails steady progression of machined gears from titanium, aluminum alloys, and high-strength steel. Precise tolerance is needed for all commercial aircraft landing gear components such as axles, actuators, shock absorbers, and wheels. The heat treatment of the metal parts needs to be accurate, after which the concluding machining and painting require to be complex and accurate. The dependability of all these landing gear components is improved through stringent quality assurance and safety needs. Manufacturers need to incessantly improve equipment, technology, and manufacturing processes to adapt to the requirements.

The main landing gear segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The main landing gear segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, owing to its importance as one of the primary requirements for aircraft. The main landing gear bears the entire heaviness of the aircraft through the first brunt. Therefore, the number of tires used in them is more. Large freighter aircraft and widebody aircraft are the main revenue generators for the segment, as they require large main landing gear equipment to support the weight of the aircraft. For instance, in A380, the world’s largest commercial aircraft, the main landing gear consists of 20 wheels in total. The main landing gear assembly of the aircraft is the largest and most intricate ever developed for a commercial aircraft. Hence, the cost per unit landing gear assembly of the main landing gear is high owing to a larger number of subsystems involved, therefore, resulting in high revenues for the segment.

The narrow body aircraft (NBA) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The narrow body aircraft (NBA) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the rising number of high-density flights between various airports and the increasing passenger traffic in Low Cost Carriers (LCC’s). Narrow-body aircraft are mainly used as low cost carriers. These aircraft operate for short routes in the commercial aviation industry.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to rising demand for aircraft by major airline companies, growth of the travel and tourism industry, increasing air traffic across the nations, and emergence of low-cost carriers along with growing affordability. The region is expected to achieve unprecedented long-term growth in commercial aviation. The demand for air travel is expanding aggressively in many developing countries, such as India, Malaysia, China, and Thailand, which in turn has led to a growing demand for commercial aircraft landing gear systems across the geographies. Moreover, China's commercial aviation sector made great strides in the past five years, and further improvements are expected in the coming years, due to the growing fleet size in China also generated significant demand for MRO services in the country.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the presence of key aircraft manufacturers in the region, technological advancements related to aircraft landing gear along with rising procurement of aircrafts by the military, the presence of multiple airports, and demand for the production of lightweight aircraft. Moreover, the aircraft industry in the US has matured and majority aircraft-related activities take place in this country.
