The aircraft brake system is generally used to slow down the aircraft during the landing roll on the runway. Itis a necessary component to ensure the safety and directional control of an aircraft during ground operations, such as, taxiing, landing, and takeoff. Earlier, aircrafts used disc brakes, in which the disc rotates with the wheel assembly while a stationary caliper resists the rotation by causing friction against the disc when the brakes are applied. However, due to the introduction of new technologies and innovations, the electric braking system has become more popular. This braking system provides anti-skid protection and fully integrated brake control, including emergency and parking brake functions by merging brake-by-wire controlled technology with electro-mechanical brake actuation.
Working of an aircraft braking system depends upon a few parameters, such as minimum stopping distance, better heat dissipation, and easy maneuvering.Consequently, the size, weight, and landing speed of the aircraft are deciding parameters for selecting the type and design of the aircraft brake system.
The rise in the traffic of air passengers worldwide in recent years has led to an increase in the demand for aircraft. Also, airlines around the world are demanding new aircrafts with advanced technologies. To meet the demand from airliners, the aircraft industry is developing aircrafts with advanced systems and components. The growing demand for aircraft is increasing the need for aircraft braking systems. The demand for technological improvements in prevailing aircraft braking systems has led to growth of the electrical braking system market. Moreover, brakes need to work in extreme environments, which results in the chances of degradation of quality of brake material through corrosion, which creates opportunities for the aftermarket industry. Another key point, which is surging growth of the aircraft brake system market is the search for lighter aircraft braking systems. The aircraft brake system market features a competitive environment of OEMs. Additionally, increasing fleet size is going to be one of the most important factors driving growth of the aircraft brake system market.
A major restraint in the aircraft brake system market is the operating and maintenance cost faced by airlines. Hence, the introduction of new technologies, such as electric braking system, to overcome maintenance cost is hampering the market for traditional and carbon braking systems, which are relatively less effective.
Aircraft Brake System Market Segmentation By Product Type – Disc brakes, Carbon brakes, Expander tube brakes; By Actuating System – Independent system, Booster system, Power brake system; By Aircraft Type – Narrow Body, Wide Body, Large Body; By Sales Channel – Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), Aftermarket
North America is expected to dominate the aircraft brake system market for carbon brakes, due to the presence of a large number of market participants. The global aircraft brake system market is expected to show faster growth in the Asia-Pacific region, due to increasing usage of aircraft in this region. Growing demand for air travel in this region is promoting the aircraft market and consequently, the aircraft braking systems market. Both the segments of sales, namely OEM and aftermarket, are predicted to offer healthy opportunities in upcoming years.
