Overview of the global commercial aircraft wing market

According to the market research analyst at Technavio, the growth prospects for the global commercial aircraft wing market will be affected by the advent of new wing designs to enhance aircraft efficiency. The shape and design of aircraft wings play an important role in defining aircraft operations. The wing is a vital element of the aircraft that enhances aircraft performance and maintains operating costs within the specified limits. The fundamental aim of aircraft design is to generate the required lift and streamline airflow while minimizing drag and weight acting on the aircraft. This phenomenon results in low fuel consumption and high cruise range. As a result, OEMs and public organizations such as NASA are considerably investing in the development of new wing designs. This market research report estimates that the global commercial aircraft wing market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 8% by 2021.

Another key trend that is envisaged to spur this market’s growth is the extensive use of composite cellular morphing technology for wings. A century ago, the Wright brothers accomplished their first Flyer 1 aircraft powered flight, using pulleys and wires that provided movement in the wood-and-canvas wings. After few years, separate, hinged flaps, and ailerons were developed to cause aircraft movement. But with growing technological advancements, a new kind of bendable wing was developed using cellular morphing technology. This new wing design helped simplify wing design and reduce fuel consumption by improving the wing aerodynamics.
