Market Overview:

The global aircraft control surfaces market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,362.8 Mn in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ 4,711.5 Mn by 2030, registering a CAGR of 7.4% from 2018 to 2030. The market is segmented on the basis of type, application and region. On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into ailerons, elevators, stabilator and rudder. The ailerons segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global aircraft control surfaces market in 2018 owing to its widespread use in commercial as well as general aviation aircrafts across different regions worldwide. On the basis of application, airliner accounted for majority share in 2017 and it is projected that this trend would continue during forecast period as well due rising demand for air travel globally coupled with increasing passenger traffic across different geographies.

Global Aircraft Control Surfaces Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

The aircraft control surfaces are the parts of an airplane that provide control and stability. The most important ones are the wings, which provide lift and drag, and the tail, which provides stability.


Ailerons are control surfaces on each side of an aircraft's wing. They help the pilot steer by providing a yawing motion to the aircraft. The primary function of ailerons is to keep the nose of an airplane pointed in the direction that it is traveling. Aileron movement creates rolling or gyroscopic effect which helps in maintaining directional stability during flight and prevents nose up or down movement, thus keeping the flight path straight.


The elevator is a mechanical device that is used in aircraft to change the angle of attack with respect to the air. It works by moving the wing up or down and increases or decreases lift, respectively. Elevator controls are used for various functions such as changing flight path, ascending/descending while maintaining altitude, lining up with a runway during landing etc.

Application Insights:

The airliner segment dominated the global aircraft control surfaces market in 2017, accounting for more than 60.0% share of the total revenue. The demand for advanced flight controls, which provide better precision and increased safety during critical operations such as take-off and landing, is expected to drive the product demand in this segment over the forecast period. In addition, increasing passenger traffic coupled with rising air travel spending by companies is projected to propel industry growth over the coming years.

General aviation accounted for a significant share of 29.1% in terms of revenue on account of high product penetration rates across various general aviation aircraft types globally including light single-engine piston (LSPE), light twins (LTPV), mid-wing multi engine (MEMEV) and tricycle gear all having conventional control surfaces such as ailerons, elevators.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the presence of major aircraft manufacturers and suppliers, such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin Corporation., and Airbus S.A.S., based in this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to rising disposable income coupled with growing passenger traffic on a large scale across countries such as China and India which are amongst top 20 busiest airports globally by traffic levels at present time (2017).

Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to high production volumes attained by certain types of aircraft control surfaces manufactured using advanced technologies coupled with high maintenance costs associated with conventional products used for controlling planes during flight operations.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for air travel: The global air travel industry is growing at a rapid pace, owing to the increasing number of passengers opting for air travel. This is expected to drive the demand for aircraft control surfaces in the coming years.
  • Technological advancements: Aircraft manufacturers are constantly investing in research and development to introduce new and innovative technologies in their aircraft designs. This is expected to boost the growth of the aircraft control surfaces market in the near future.
  • Rising disposable income: The rise in disposable income has led to an increase in spending on luxury goods, including aviation products and services. This is anticipated to fuel the growth ofthe aircraft control surfaces market over the next few years.
