Commercial Aircraft Carbon Brakes Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023
Global Commercial Aircraft Carbon Brakes Market by Aircraft Type (Fixed-Wing (Narrow-body, Widebody), Rotary-wing)), by End-User (OEM, Aftermarket), by Material (PAN, Rayon/Petroleum Pitch),
Manufacturing Process (CVI, LPI) & by Region-Forecast Till 2023
Carbon brakes were initially used in high-performance military aircraft applications. The lower weight and higher heat
absorption capability of carbon brakes justified their cost, which was higher than the cost of steel brakes. These cost
considerations often give rise to the use of steel brakes on smaller, short-haul commercial aircraft and carbon brakes on
larger, long-haul commercial aircraft. Recent developments in carbon brake manufacturing and overhaul techniques have
minimized the per-landing cost of carbon brakes, such that they are cost effective as compared to steel brakes. The
improved operations along with the performance improvements offered by carbon brakes have led to rise in the application
of carbon brakes on commercial aircraft. Carbon brakes have a number of operational advantages relative to steel brakes,
such as longer life, cost-effectiveness, high-performance, and lightweight. Moreover, carbon brakes can withstand the highperformance braking demands of commercial aircraft. Carbon brake material is categorized by high thermal conductivity,
high-temperature stability, and high specific heat.
Based on the material, the commercial aerospace carbon brakes market has been segmented by rayon/petroleum pitch and
polyacrylonitrile. Among various materials segments, the polyacrylonitrile segment will have the major market contribution
followed by rayon/petroleum pitch during the forecast period. Increasing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft is anticipated to
be one of the major factor driving the commercial aerospace carbon brakes market during the forecast period.
Based on the aircraft type, the commercial aerospace carbon brakes market has been segmented by fixed-wing and rotarywing. Furthermore, the fixed-wing segment is sub-segmented as wide-body aircraft, and narrow-body aircraft. Among
various aircraft type, the narrow-body aircraft market is estimated to be the largest during the forecast period. The rise in
several new low-cost carriers generates demand for the narrow-body aircraft. Moreover, increased focus on fuel efficiency is
also enhancing the growth of the commercial aircraft carbon brakes market during the forecast period.

Due to global warming and climate changes, aerospace companies and airlines have been bound to promote carbonreducing measures and energy savings to control and manage greenhouse gas emission that have adverse ecological
impacts. Furthermore, some airlines and aerospace companies are investing in energy-efficient technologies as an effective
measure to reduce fuel consumption. For instance, in Feb. 2018, the UTC Aerospace Systems' patented, “Duracarb” carbon
heat sink material brakes, allow for 2,000 landings per overhaul related to 250 landings per overhaul for the present brake
system. Its lifespan is eight times longer, significantly reducing maintenance time and cost. Moreover, the brakes are
capable of handling higher stress and can absorb more heat energy than the existing carbon brakes, which increases the
safety margin when stopping heavily-loaded airplanes. At present, carbon composite brake disks are being extensively used
in the landing gear system due to their reduced weight, enhanced life, and comparatively low maintenance cost.
The introduction of Green Aircraft Taxiing Systems (EGTS) is a key trend in the market. Aircraft taxiing involves the
movement of aircraft on the ground under its engine power. This process burns much fuel, and most aircraft use
approximately 600 liters of fuel while taxiing for an average of 3.5 hours a day. As a result, many companies have started
developing alternative electrically or hybrid driven methods to mitigate the excessive fuel consumption and emission
impact during aircraft taxiing. For example, recently, Airbus S.A.S signed MOU with Honeywell and Safran to develop EGTS
for A320 aircraft. The main landing gear wheels are typically equipped with motors for maximized performance, traction
and agility which in turn requires an effective braking system. This further necessitates the use of carbon material for
Increasing commercial aircraft fleets, and better operational performance of carbon brakes over steel brakes are some of
the key drivers of the commercial aircraft carbon brakes market. North America is anticipated to remain the largest market
for carbon brakes due to large manufacturing base of largest commercial OEM and increasing retrofit aircraft market.
However, during the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate. Both OEM and aftermarket
segments are likely to offer opportunity in the forecast period. Therefore, the commercial aircraft carbon brakes market is
estimated to witness a CAGR of more than 11% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.
