The global commercial aircraft FCS market to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during the period 2016-2020
Flight control systems (FCS) consist of primary and secondary systems. Ailerons, elevators, and rudder constitute the primary FCS and are required to control an aircraft for safe flight. On the other hand, wing flaps, spoilers, leading edge devices, and trim systems constitute the secondary FCS. Secondary FCS enhance the performance attributes of the aircraft airplane and offer relief to the pilot from excessive control forces.
Global Commercial Aircraft Flight Control Systems (FCS) Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
A key trend which will propel market growth is the introduction of fly-by-wire aircraft. The cockpit controls and movable surfaces on the wing and tail of conventional aircraft were controlled manually, using hydraulic and mechanical systems. However, with the advent of fly-by-wire technology, these controls are mainly computerized, and the pilot commands are transmitted electronically via a network of actuators placed on the wings and tail of the airship. The integration of this system has not only reduced the complexity of manual controls but also the weight of the aircraft bearing them. This, in turn, has increased the fuel efficiency, reliability, and safety of the aircraft.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increasing use of thrust management systems. Thrust management systems (TMS) provides the pilot with better control over the thrust and power in an aircraft, and increased use of such systems boosts the market growth. It is an automated throttle director system that allows customized flight characteristics for aircraft engines, rather than manual control over the fuel flow. Therefore, the flight attains the adequate speed and power with regulated fuel flow, conserved fuel expense, and extended engine life.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is issues with electromechanical actuators.
