Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Delivery of Modern Military Aircraft to Stimulate Growth

Modern aircraft demand modern technology. Owing to this, the replacement of conventional technology with the latest modern technology is also rising. Since safety is a major concern, the up-gradation of existing aircraft fleets and acquisition of modern technology-equipped aircraft is expected to augment the AFCS market growth. The expansion of the aircraft fleet by airliners due to the increasing air travel demand is also expected to boost the AFCS market growth. Electronic flight control systems or fly-by-wire systems are also expected to bring immense growth in the forthcoming years due to their mounting demand for integration in UAVs and modern military aircraft.

However, the advanced AFCS involve a high cost in deployment and production. This is likely to hamper the market growth. Also, the malfunctions encountered in hydro-mechanical systems are expected to impede market growth.
