    What are winglets?

    Winglets reduce wingtip vortices, the twin whirlwinds formed by the difference between the pressure on the upper surface of an aircraft's wing and that on the lower surface. High pressure on the lower surface creates a natural airflow that makes its way to the wingtip and curls upward around it. When flow around the wingtips streams out behind the airplane, a vortex is formed. This represents an energy loss and is strong enough to flip the aircraft. Overall, winglets are a proven way to reduce drag, enhance fuel efficiency, reduce CO2 and NOx emissions, and reduce community noise. The addition of winglets can also be used to increase the payload or range capabilities of the aircraft apart from reducing fuel consumption.

    Segments Analysis

    By Aircraft Type

    The aerospace winglets market is segmented based on aircraft type as narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, very large aircraft, regional aircraft, and general aviation. Narrow-body aircraft is likely to remain the largest and fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period of 2017-2022. B737 and A320 along with their recently launched variants would remain the growth engines of the winglets market in the narrow-body aerospace industry over the next five years.

    By Winglet Type

    Based on winglet type, the global aerospace winglets market is segmented as blended winglets, sharklets, split scimitar winglets, raked wingtips, advanced technology winglets, wingtip fences, elliptical winglets, and others. Blended winglet dominates the aerospace winglets market, propelled by its certification in Boeing's best-selling aircraft program B737. Blended winglets offer a 3% to 5% increase in fuel efficiency as compared to aircraft without winglets. Advanced technology winglet is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period of 2017-2022.

    Regional Insights

    North America is projected to remain the largest market for winglets during the forecast period, driven by the presence of assembly plants of Boeing and Bombardier. The region is also the manufacturing capital of the aerospace industry with the presence of major composite part fabricators and raw material suppliers. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing winglets market over the next five years, driven by upcoming commercial and regional aircraft with winglets as an option and high commercial aircraft fleet size.
