The aircraft thrust reverser market is poised to grow at a strong rate over the coming time period owing to the growing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft, and advancements in technology. A thrust reverser is a device which is fitted in the engine exhaust system which efficiently reverses the flow of the exhaust gases.
It is utilized in order to decrease the airspeed in flight, though it is not common in modern aircrafts. The aircraft reverse thrust is much more effective at higher speeds than at lower speeds, particularly because the power that is produced is much higher at high speeds owing to the enhanced rate of operation and because the net amount of reverse thrust goes up with speed.
The aircraft thrust reverser market is bifurcated in terms of product, aircraft, the manufacturing process, mechanism, and regional landscape.
With respect to product, the market is classified into bucket, cascade, and pivot door. The cascade segment will witness a substantial growth owing to the installation of systems to increase the aerodynamic performance as well as improve design. Increasing commercial aircraft production will thus strengthen the market size.
Based on aircraft, the aircraft thrust reverser market is categorized into business jets, military, regional jets, widebody, narrow-body, and commercial. Growing need for the airworthiness and reliability of aircraft structures will stipulate thrust reversers market demand in commercial aviation over the projected time period.
Increasing penetration of next generation aircraft along with rising use of composite in different widebody aircraft variants will be responsible for the segment’s growth over the forecast timeframe.
In terms of manufacturing process, the overall aircraft thrust reverser market is bifurcated into resin infusion, ATL/AFP, hand layup, and others. The other manufacturing process for aircraft thrust reverser includes pre-preg layup, which is commonly utilized in the manufacturing of reinforced fabric.
Maximum strength provided, uniformity & repeatability for components are some of the advantages linked with the pre-preg layup process. The key aspects, which includes less waste and less mess, less curing time, along with better aesthetic of finished products are likely to encourage significant segmental growth.
Based on mechanism, the aircraft thrust reverser market is divided into electric and hydraulic. Electric mechanism will have significant share over the forecast time period. It can be attributed to various advantageous associated with the product, like enhanced performance, improved reliability, and lightweight.
From a regional frame of reference, the increasing demand for low cost carriers in Latin America region will augment the growth of regional industry.
