The global aircraft brake system market was valued at $10.52 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $16.95 billion in 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.2%.    

The aircraft brake system is used for slowing or stopping the motion of the aircraft. Aircraft brakes are disc and are hydraulically or pneumatically operated. Multiple types of aircraft brake systems have been designed, for instance, single disc, dual disc, multiple disc, and rotor-disc brakes. A properly designed aircraft brake can withstand various unfavorable conditions, and prevent the plane from running at accidental speeds. The introduction of aircraft brake systems necessitates extensive engineering and computation. Majority of aircraft brake systems are made as per fixed standards. Aircraft tire standards are governed by global agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Increase in air passenger traffic across the globe

The growth of the global aircraft brake system market is majorly driven by increase in air passenger traffic. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) yearly worldwide statistics, the total number of commuters carried on scheduled flights reached 4.38 billion in 2019, which was 3.65% higher than the previous year. The highest passenger traffic was witnessed in Asia-Pacific. In October 2018, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) publicized that the current developments in air transport projects that the passenger count could double to 8.2 billion by 2037. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a severe downfall in air traffic figures, although recently, in May 2021, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) stated that the global air passenger traffic is anticipated to recover to almost 88% of pre-COVID levels during 2022, and is projected to outdo this level by 2023. This signifies a robust demand for air travel across the globe.

The abovementioned statistics suggest a rise in air passenger traffic over the years internationally.  This rise would result in a significant surge in demand for new airplanes throughout the world, which would directly impact the sales of aircraft brake systems. Hence, rise in air traffic is anticipated to drive the growth of the aircraft brake system market during the forecast period.

Rise in operations in commercial aviation industry

The commercial aviation industry consists of two segments, passenger aircraft and cargo aircraft. In recent years, both segments have performed well and has witnessed rapid rise in operations, which boosted the growth of the global commercial aircraft industry. With globally rising air passenger traffic, the industry has witnessed significantly growth.  However, the unprecedented occurrence of COVID-19 pandemic has affected the industry in terms of revenue growth.

Key aviation players around the world are finding ways to make aviation sector safer and reliable. Hence, rapid development has been witnessed in the commercial aircraft industry in the recent years. According to Boeing’s Commercial Market Outlook (CMO) 2020–2039, the 2021 CMO reflects that the global Aircraft Brake System market is recovering rapidly. Surge in demand for domestic air travel is responsible for the recovery of the airliner industry amid ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and intra-regional markets are expected to open with full capacity, as health and travel restrictions ease, followed by return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023 to 2024 with respect to long-haul travel scenario. It mentions that in long term, market fundamentals and resilience will drive the demand for more than 43,500 new airplanes valued at $7.2 trillion by 2040. Thus, all these factors collectively are expected to fuel the growth of the aircraft braking system market during the forecast period.

Stringent regulatory environment pertaining to aircraft safety

Stringent regulations have been implemented pertaining to passenger and aircraft safety. As a result, the aviation industry has regulatory obligations and continues to modify them to attain the optimum safety standard for the aviation industry's safety and improvement. Thus, aircraft baking system makers have to design new products to meet these requirements. One of these regulatory criteria is related with the replacement of steel brakes with carbon brakes; as a result, the maintenance services provided by the key actors in the aircraft braking system operate as a vital service to comply with the industry's safety and regulatory standards. 

One of the major regulations by the Federal Aviation Administration, which gives mandates regarding the operation of aircraft brakes under section 25.375 of the aviation regulations, involves various tests and certifications of that major component manufacturers of the braking system have to follow. According to the regulation, each assembly consisting of a wheel(s) and brake(s) must be approved. The brake system, associated systems, and components must be designed and constructed in such a way that if any electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, or mechanical connecting or transmitting element fails, or if any single source of hydraulic or other brake operating energy supply is lost, it is possible to bring the airplane to rest with a braked roll stopping distance of not more than two times that obtained in determining the landing distance as prescribed under the standards as mentioned in the regulation. The regulation consists of various standards and stringent requirements to be met by aircraft brake manufacturers. Such regulations are expected to limit the growth of the aircraft braking system market during the forecast period.

OEM is projected as the most lucrative segments

Implementation of advanced technology

Increase in air passenger traffic in recent years has propelled the demand for aircraft worldwide. In addition, airlines all over the world are ordering new planes equipped with cutting-edge technology. The aircraft industry is developing airplanes with advanced systems and components to suit the demand from airlines. With rise in demand for airplanes, the demand for aircraft brake systems will increase correspondingly.

As a result of surge in demand for technological upgrades in existing airplane brake systems, the aircraft braking system market is expected to grow significantly over the years. Furthermore, as brakes have to operate under harsh settings, the risks of brake material degradation due to corrosion increases, which presents prospects for the aftermarket companies. Another important factor driving the market for aircraft braking systems is the R&D for making lighter aircraft brake systems. These factors are expected to bolster the growth of the global aircraft braking system market during the forecast period.
