Air Taxis: The fastest-growing segment of the aircraft actuators market, by platform.

The air taxis platform is the fastest-growing segment of the aircraft actuators market. Air taxis or passenger drones are aerial vehicles that carry passengers from one place to another. The increasing urban population has resulted in the development of mass transportation solutions, such as metros and faster rail and bus services. One of the alternatives for mass transportation is passenger drones. Presently, several companies are focusing on the development of air taxis that are expected to be commercialized in the coming years, which subsequently is expected to drive the market for aircraft actuators.

Commercial Aviation: The largest market share segment of the aircraft actuators market, by application.

Commercial aviation is the application segment contributing the largest share of the aircraft actuators market. The commercial aviation sector is expected to witness robust growth post-COVID-19 pandemic situation. This growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing air travel, the rise in disposable income of the middle-class population, and increased international trade and tourism across the globe. This increase in aircraft orders will drive the demand for actuators, which are used in a wide range of aircraft applications, including landing gear, flight control, engine control, and various auxiliary controls, such as brakes, nose wheels, and steering. The increase in the application scope of actuators in the applications mentioned above is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific: The fastest-growing region in the aircraft actuators market.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the highest CAGR rate for the aircraft actuators market during the forecast period. The growth of this region is attributed to the demand for advanced actuation systems in the aviation industry. With affordable air travel on the rise and relaxation in some government regulations, the Asia Pacific region is witnessing an increased procurement of LCCs. Additionally, an increasing aerospace & defense expenditure and expansion in airline networks in emerging nations, such as India and China, have accelerated the demand for aircraft actuators in the region.
