An actuator can be defines as a component or part of a machine which is responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. An actuator initiates its function upon receiving control signal and requires a source of energy. The control signal can be relatively low energy and may be electric voltage or current, pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, or even human power. The supplied main energy source may be electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure, or pneumatic pressure. When the control signal is received, the actuator responds by converting the energy into mechanical motion. Globally increasing demand for commercial aircrafts with less carbon footprints is expected to drive the demand for aircraft actuators during the period of study.
Geographically North America dominated aircraft actuator market owing to the large scale of its aviation industry which includes aircraft building and maintenance activities. North America was followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific as second and third largest market for aircraft actuator market. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing industrial infrastructure which has attracted many aviation industry player, government initiatives and in developing nations such as China, and India in this region.
