Aircraft Brake Calipers Market Opportunity Analysis And Industry Forecast, 2020-2030

Due to lockdown in almost every country across the globe, the aviation industry has suffered losses.

Aircraft brackets are basically structures that are attached to various components in an aircraft and serve as a supporting component over the other components. A bracket is a fixed L-shaped construction that connects two vertical and horizontal surfaces. The aero plane brackets are made to meet specific needs for a wide range of applications. An aircraft frames have many mounting holes in the bracket corresponding the brackets to hold up one or more components. The bracket can be mounted in any position without using the equipment and can be supported by a diversity of devices which can be spanned between two or more aircraft frame members.

Major Market Players:
Parker Hannifin Corp, Safran, Grove Aircraft Landing Gear Systems Inc., Collins Aerospace, Chief Aircraft Inc., Wilwood Engineering, Meggitt, BERINGER AERO, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co., W.C. Branham, Inc., RAPCO inc., MOV'IT GMBH, Airframes Alaska, Goldfren.

Due to lockdown in almost every country across the globe, the aviation industry has suffered losses. The Covid-19 virus has started to spread rapidly across various nations within a short time span. The pandemic has significantly affected aircraft brake calipers market during 2020-2021 owing to temporary closure of manufacturing operations of aircraft component manufacturers. The lockdown situation has occurred due to the rising cases of Covid-19 that temporarily terminated various operations in the aviation sector such as air travelling, manufacturing, raw material supply, and aircraft deliveries. These factors have affected the aircraft brake caliper market adversely. According to the airbus SE and the Boeing company, there is a decline in aircraft deliveries. Therefore, at that time of pandemic, the company has decided to reduce the production by one third. The unorganized sectors have much worse conditions due to the uncertainty that would impact smaller organizations with lesser retentive power, due to their lower profitability.

Aircraft brake with single discs are a commonplace in small and light aircrafts. A non-rotating caliper is bolted to the landing gear axle, aiding in applying the brakes during friction on either sides of the discs. However, the single disc proves to be inept for applying brakes. As such, two discs are bolted to the wheel in aircraft carbon brakes with dual discs enveloping a center carrier in between the discs. Presence of linings on both the sides contacts all the discs during employment of brakes, enabling safer braking, thereby making aircraft carbon brakes with dual discs highly suitable in large and heavy aircrafts. For instance, aircraft carbon brakes with multiple discs are attached to an extended bearing carrier akin to a torque tube unit bolted to the axle flange, chiefly for heavy-duty applications, including military aircraft operations.

One of the biggest prospects for the aircraft brake caliper market to grow in the next years is emerging aircraft manufacturers. Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation is engaged in the production of regional aircrafts, while COMAC manufactures commercial, business, and regional aircrafts. Rise in the demand for commercial aircraft, business jets, and regional transport aircrafts, owing to increased air passenger traffic is expected to provide these manufacturers growth opportunities for the production of new aircraft, and consequently lead to growth of the aircraft flight control system market during the forecast period. For instance, Airbus and Boeing, the world's only major large passenger aircraft manufacturers, dominate the airline supply industry with their established brands, Boeing's 7-series and Airbus's A-series of jets.
