    Market Insights

    Aircraft windshield wiper or windscreen wiper is a system used to remove rain, debris, snow, and ice from an aircraft front window, so the pilot can access a better view. It plays a very important role during the takeoff and landing, as well as at the time of flight. Most commonly the wiper system runs through electrical motors, but some aircraft equipped with hydraulic wiper motors. An aircraft windshield wiper system consists of a wiper blade, a wiper arm, and a wiper motor or converter that runs by the electrical system. The blade swipes and forth over the glass, to remove water or other precipitations from the surface. Most of the aircraft are equipped with wipers, for both, pilot and co-pilot, which work with the same electrical system, while some aircraft have two separate wiper systems in which one is for back-up in case another fails.

    Year 2019 was challenging for the aerospace industry, especially for commercial aerospace, owing to the grounding of B737 Max, issues in P&W 1100G engine series (A320neo), low booking of aircraft orders due to US-China trade war, revised production rates of B787 and A350XWB, and delayed deliveries of upcoming aircraft programs such as B777X and C919. However, the long-term outlook still seems vigorous with attractive growth opportunities in years to come, backed by several factors including huge order backlogs of both OEMs, rising air passenger, and freight traffic, increasing population, and the development of fuel-efficient variants.

    The aircraft windshield wiper systems market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.0% over the next five years (2020-2025). Organic growth of the aircraft industry is anticipated to remain the biggest growth propeller. Both Boeing and Airbus are projecting healthy demand for commercial and regional aircraft in the next twenty years in their business outlooks. Boeing, in its outlook 2019-2038, projected that there will be the need for 44,040 commercial and regional aircraft during 2019-2038 out of which narrow-body aircraft will account for almost 78% share. Airbus too has similar projections in its business outlook of 2019-2038. Upcoming aircraft programs, such as B777X, C919, A321XLR, and Irkut MC-21, would generate consequential demand for windshield wiper systems in the coming years.

    Segments' Analysis

    Aircraft Windshield Wiper Systems Market Share by Aircraft Type

    The aircraft windshield wiper systems market is segmented based on the aircraft type as commercial aircraft, helicopter, general aviation, regional aircraft, and military aircraft. Commercial aircraft is likely to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment growth over the next five years. Boeing and Airbus are anticipated to generate a healthy demand for windshield wiper systems in the coming five years. Expected market entry of Irkut and COMAC in the commercial aerospace business will further add a stir to the growth of wiper systems in the aircraft segment. Military aircraft is likely to experience the second-highest growth during the forecast period, driven by C-130J Super Hercules, A400M, and KC-46 Pegasus.

    Aircraft Windshield Wiper Systems Market Share by Fit Type

    Based on fit type, the market is segmented as line fit and retrofit. Line fit is likely to remain the most dominant segment and is likely to register an excellent CAGR over the forecast period, whereas retrofit is likely to witness higher growth over the next five years, propelled by increasing commercial aircraft fleet size.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the North American aircraft windshield wiper systems market. The country is the hub for the aerospace industry with the presence of several aircraft OEMs, tier players, windshield wiper system manufacturers, and raw material suppliers. Major companies have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of the OEMs in order to be the partner for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs.
