The global aircraft gearbox market size is set to gain momentum from extended deliveries of commercial aircraft coupled with rising demand for Pure-Power Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines gearbox technology advancements and the introduction of lightweight gearboxes. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in an upcoming report, titled, “Aircraft Gearbox Market, 2023-2030.”

The aircraft gearbox industry is a segment of the aerospace industry that deals with the design, manufacture, and maintenance of gearboxes for aircraft. Gearboxes are essential components of aircraft engines that transmit power from the engine to the propeller, rotor, or other drive systems.

The aircraft gearbox industry produces several types of gearboxes, including planetary gearboxes, spur gearboxes, and bevel gearboxes. Planetary gearboxes are the most commonly used in aircraft engines due to their compact size, high efficiency, and ability to handle high torque loads. Spur gearboxes are used in some aircraft applications, such as propellers, where high torque and low speed are required. Bevel gearboxes are used in helicopter transmissions to transmit power from the engine to the rotor.
