Aircraft Winglets Market Size to exceed $3.2bn by 2026

  • Published Date: February 4, 2020

Aircraft Winglets Market size is estimated to cross USD 3.2 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising aircraft demand owing to growing air passenger traffic across the globe will support the aircraft winglets market growth. These structures offer several advantages to aircraft including increased payload capacity, enhanced fuel efficiency, and lower engine noise. All these advantages enable airlines to improve revenue generations. Additionally, rising concern towards increased carbon emission from air transport industry will further provide lucrative opportunity for the industry.

Stringent government norms related to carbon emission will escalate product popularity

Major government bodies have provided stringent regulations for curbing the carbon emission generated from different industries across the globe. For instance, European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) has offered cap on major resources of carbon dioxide emission. This will put pressure on several airlines operating in Europe to report and verify emission of in-service aircrafts and limit it in order to prevent themselves from additional charges. This has generated pressure on airlines to install the product on their in-service aircrafts, thereby supporting market growth.

Trends of fuel saving, improved range, and reduction in engine maintenance costs will boost sharklet’s sale

Sharklets have offered several advantages to A320 family aircrafts such as reducing takeoff thrust of aircraft for the same takeoff weight, thereby enabling airlines to save up to 2% in engine maintenance costs. Sharklets further improved the range of aircrafts by up to 110 nm. Airlines across the globe are ordering several new aircrafts to enhance their presence in emerging aviation markets.

Regional jets will generate market revenue of over USD 40 million by 2026. This is owing to growing product usage in this segment. Increased production of regional jets by Bombardier and Embraer with introduction of advanced models will support market growth. According to International Air Transport Association (IATA) fact sheet 2019, new regional jets are expected to enhance fuel saving by 20% as compared to previous versions of regional jets. New jets are further equipped with active winglets to achieve fuel saving targets.

B737 platform will have significant portion in the market throughout the study period owing to increasing usage of blended winglets in several B737 category aircrafts. These aircrafts expected to showcase over 15% CAGR by 2026. Increased retrofitting of split scimitar and blended types for 737-300 to improve payload capacities will further support market growth.

Line fit aircraft winglets will have significant growth rate over the coming years owing to increasing product adoption in new aircraft production over recent years. Aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing are offering sharklets and winglets as standard equipment of several new aircraft models, which is supporting the segment growth.

Increasing demand for low cost carrier will stipulate winglets sale in this region

Asia Pacific aircraft winglets market will showcase a considerable growth of close to 7% CAGR during the forecast timeframe. Increasing air tourism along with business travel has generated a higher demand for new aircrafts. According to IATA forecast, Asia Pacific is likely to carry over half of the number of new passenger traffic across the globe by 2037.

Some of the key participants involved in the market include FACC AG, Aviation Partners, Inc., RUAG Aerostructures, Aviation Partners Boeing and Korean Air’s Aerospace Division.
