The global aviation actuator systems market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The aviation industry has been witnessing technological advancement in aircraft models, leading to improvement in the actuator systems. Actuator systems in aircrafts play an important role in the control and flight of the vehicle, and ensures safety of the aircraft as well as the passengers. These actuators are used in aircraft flaps, landing gears and weapons systems. They are widely used in position feedback, clutches, load limiters, manual drives, seat actuation, lading gears and electromagnetic brakes for commercial aircrafts. In the case of landing gears, heavy-duty linear actuators are used to combat the high pressure, which can go beyond 5000 psi. Flap actuators are linear actuators located on each wing, and help in maintaining flight efficiency at low air speeds. While in case of fighter jets, electric and hydraulic actuators are used for opening the bay doors that hold weapons.
Rising demand for advanced electronic components in the aviation industry is expected to replace the traditional hydraulic and pneumatic actuators, which is expected to drive the aviation actuator systems market. This can be attributed to low power consumption, more dispatch availability, lightweight, compact, fuel efficient and reliability offered by electronic actuator systems. Increasing fuel prices have surged the demand for an efficient aircraft that employs the More Electric Aircraft (MEA) and fuel efficient concept.
The problems associated with contamination, fluid, heating, cost and controlling are improved by the electric actuation system, which is expected to contribute majorly to the development of eco-friendly electric aircrafts and give impetus to the aviation actuator systems market. Major challenges in deployment of flight control actuation include redundant system topologies to achieve availability and high safety level. Manufacturers have been aiming at a fully optimized electro-mechanical actuated system in the near future.
The aviation actuator systems market can be segmented on the basis of product into mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrohydraulic and electromechanical actuators. North America is expected to exhibit high growth over the forecast period. North-American Airlines is expected to invest in the redesigning process of international wide-body aircraft. Air traffic in Europe is expected to increase, requiring significant upgrading. Manufacturers in this region are aiming at emission free and fuel-efficient aircrafts with efficient aviation actuator systems. Key companies operating in the market include Woodward, UTC, Saab, Rockwell Collins, Parker, Moog, Merrill, Honeywell, GE Aviation, Electromech Technologies, Eaton, Curtiss Wright, Cesa, Beaver and Arkwin.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR) solutions are anticipated to substantially contribute while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and address continuously evolving challenges. The existing situation owing to the outbreak of the epidemic will inspire pharmaceutical vendors and healthcare establishments to improve their R&D investments in AI, acting as a core technology for enabling various initiatives. The insurance industry is expected to confront the pressure associated with cost-efficiency. Usage of AI can help in reducing operating costs, and at the same time, can increase customer satisfaction during the renewal process, claims, and other services. VR/AR can assist in e-learning, for which the demand will surge owing to the closure of many schools and universities. Further, VR/AR can also prove to be a valuable solution in providing remote assistance as it can support in avoiding unnecessary travel. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
