Main market trends

The main landing gear segment held the largest market share in 2021

The main landing gear supports the entire weight of the aircraft on first impact. Therefore, the number of tires used is greater than that of the nose landing gears. The manufacture of the main landing gear involves more costs due to a higher number of parts compared to the nose landing gears. Thus, the revenues of this segment are more as compared to the nose landing gear segment. Wide-body and jumbo jets are the major revenue generators in the segment, as they require large main landing gears to support the weight of the aircraft. The cost of purchasing new landing gear, the cost of MRO, and the aftermarket costs for the multi-bogie landing gear used in large aircraft are high. For example, in the A380, the largest commercial aircraft in the world, the main landing gear consists of 20 wheels in total.

To respond to business opportunities in this very difficult environment, industry players are engaged in long-term business agreements and annual contracts. In April 2021, Magellan received a contract extension for the delivery of its landing gear components for Boeing 737, 767 and 777. The aircraft’s main landing gear assembly is the largest and most complex ever developed for a commercial aircraft. Thus, the cost per assembly unit of the main landing gear landing gear is high due to more subsystems involved, resulting in high revenue for the segment.

Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Commercial aviation industry growth is expected to be the highest in Asia-Pacific. With strong growth in passenger traffic, several airlines in the region have ordered new commercial aircraft in recent years. A large portion of commercial aircraft deliveries are expected to be in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period. As a result, the demand for new landing gear for commercial aircraft is also expected to be highest in Asia-Pacific in the coming years. China’s commercial aviation sector has made great progress over the past five years, and further improvements are expected in the coming years.

China has crossed over from the United States to become the largest aviation market in 2020. Chinese aerospace manufacturer, COMAC, launched the ARJ21 aircraft in 2015 and planned to make the first C919 delivery in 2021. Liebherr LAMC Aviation Co. Ltd is the landing gear supplier for the ARJ21 program and is home to the C919 landing gear strut assembly line. The growing fleet size in China has also generated a large demand for MRO services in the country. In 2019, India was the second fastest growing aviation market in Asia-Pacific.

India’s international and domestic air passenger traffic more than doubled between 2010 and 2019. The increase in air passenger traffic has forced some of the Indian airlines to expand their fleet size. Currently, Indian airlines are operating domestic flights at around 70% of their pre-COVID levels. They are expected to reach their pre-COVID levels by 2023. Airlines in India mainly depend on foreign MRO players for landing gear MRO services. With the construction of new regional and international airports in the coming years and the growth in the size of the fleet, there is huge potential for the growth of the commercial aircraft landing gear MRO market in India.
