Growth Prospects of the Global Aircraft Actuator Market {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}

The global aircraft actuator market size was valued at USD 17.36 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow from USD 19.01 billion in 2023 to USD 32.16 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.06% during the forecast period.

Actuators play a crucial role in governing the movement of a system by transforming input control signals into mechanical motion. In the aviation industry, aircraft actuators find application in flight control systems, fuel management systems, power generation, transmission systems, and more. The primary functions of aircraft actuation systems revolve around regulating the flow or motion control of various aircraft systems. Key actuation components encompass servo motors, electric motors, power transfer units, valve actuators, generators, pumps, and other integral elements.


The demand for aircraft actuators is on the rise, driven by the growing number of aircraft deliveries and an increase in air passenger travel, particularly in emerging economies like China and India. Aircraft manufacturers are increasingly adopting electric actuators over traditional hydraulic counterparts due to the superior advantages they offer, including enhanced efficiency, reduced weight, and elimination of leakage. This shift towards electric actuators is poised to significantly propel the market's growth in the coming years.
