By Business Wire News


Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recentglobal commercial aircraft flight control systems (FCS) marketreport. This research report also lists four other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

Though there are a limited number of large- and small-sized players, the global commercial aircraft FCS market is highly fragmented. Most vendors operate across product lines and offer products to multiple industries, whereas other vendors deal with more niche segments and provide only a limited number of products to the defense industry.

According to Abhay Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on aerospace components, “Vendors have started to shift their manufacturing bases to APAC to reduce the overall operational costs. Vendors such as Airbus, Boeing, and Bombardier have begun to consider APAC as a potential region to support their business augmentation strategies, considering the growing demand for new aircraft deliverables coupled with lower manufacturing cost involvement.”

Also, the need for an enhanced response time is expected to gain increased market traction during the forecast period. This drives the vendors to acquire or set up manufacturing facilities in the region. The need for higher revenue and customer base expansion has forced global players to enter into alliances with local players to serve end-users adequately.
