DUBLIN, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Commercial Aircraft Health Monitoring Systems Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global commercial aircraft health monitoring systems market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.86% during the period 2016-2020.

Primary flight structures of aircraft are comprised of a high percentage of advanced composite materials. Their lightweight and superior strength make composite materials more advantageous than conventional aluminum alloys for use as structural components of aircraft such as Boeing 787 and Airbus 350 XWB. The reduction in weight leads to reduced emissions and enhances fuel efficiency. This, in turn, leads to the lowering of operational costs of the aircraft.

According to the report, Structural health monitoring (SHM), which is a condition-based maintenance activity, provides significant advantages over conventional damage detection techniques like nondestructive testing (NDT). SHM eliminates the need for the disassembly of aircraft components for damage evaluation, as required in most conventional damage inspection technologies. Initiatives taken by industry bodies such as the Aerospace Industry Steering Committee (SHM-AISC) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to enhance SHM systems and technologies have strengthened product acceptance and, consequently, market growth.

Further, the report states that one of the challenges had to do with the reliability and durability of damage detection techniques or sensors that are being developed and tested for use in real-world applications.
