    Market Insights

    The aerospace flight control systems are a crucial component of the aircraft that manages the flight dynamics and controls the movement of an aircraft during flight. It uses sensors, computers, and actuators to interpret data and provides control signals to the aircraft's control surfaces, such as the rudder, ailerons, and elevators. Flight control systems are responsible for various critical functions during flight, including stabilizing the aircraft, maintaining its altitude, and heading, and controlling its speed. Flight control actuators, flight control electronics, cockpit control panels, and pilot control are the components of aerospace flight control systems.

    The outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, left the aerospace industry in shambles, and it also impacted the aerospace flight control systems market, which declined by double digits in the same year. In 2021, the market further declined by 6.1%, followed by a steep recovery from 2022 onwards. Overall, the aerospace flight control systems market is anticipated to recover at a respectable CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.
