Global commercial aircraft wing market for narrowbodies: The increasing passenger traffic is expected to propel the growth of the narrowbody fleet by about three times than 2016 in the next few years. Furthermore, the global market is driven by the growing demand from network carriers for new aircraft and the need to replace aircraft in advanced regions like North America and Europe. The growth in a low-cost carrier (LCCs) will increase the requirement for single-aisle aircraft in the global markets.

The use of advanced wings and airfoil designs is expected to refine the aerodynamic features and improved machine control in narrow-body aircraft during the forecast period. The vendors are using advanced, high-speed computational devices that will yield effective structural designs and boost sales in the market. The growing focus on environment-friendly aircraft will drive innovations in the wing designs introduced by manufacturers,” says Avimanyu Basu, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on aerospace components.

Global commercial aircraft wing market for widebodies: The rising demand for aircraft replacement will drive the growth in this market sector during the forecast period. The replacement of aircraft is mainly affected by the maintenance requirements, the economies of scale, and the overall market environment. The vendors in the market will introduce new technologies that will offer efficient components along with flight control surfaces that will augment the growth of this market segment.

Global commercial aircraft wing market for regional jets: The introduction of lightweight, single-seat light sports aircraft will drive the growth of this market sector. This new line of aircraft is made up of composite materials such as aileron skin, cockpit, and seats. North America and Europe contribute to nearly 65% of the demand for regional aircraft fleet in the global market.
