Global Helicopter Blades Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5% During the Period 2016-2020; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Helicopter Blades Market 2016 - 2020” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/03/2016 -- Report forecast the global helicopter blades market to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the period 2016-2020.

Helicopter blades are essential components of a rotorcraft as they are responsible for effective aerodynamic forces which provide airworthiness. Therefore, their manufacturing process and operations are closely monitored by regulatory bodies through stringent regulations. Factors that influence the global civil helicopter market are aircraft utilization, global fleet size, and air traffic volumes.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global helicopter blades market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of main rotor blade and tail rotor blade.

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Americas

According to the report, Development of swashplateless helicopter blade pitch control systems will drive the market of global helicopter blades. The blade pitch control systems of helicopters form a complex arrangement. They involve transmission control units in the non-rotating frame to the blades in a rotating frame through swashplates. This arrangement results in a high maintenance workload and a downward force drag. Helicopters, in comparison to fixed-wing aircraft, experience excessive vibration, which results in structural fatigue and low system reliability. Due to the mechanical coupling between swashplate pitch links, complex pitch controls cannot be applied, which in turn, lowers the performance of a helicopter, affecting passenger comfort and necessitating an effectual control mechanism. In order to minimize the vibration level, improve pitch control, and improve the performance of helicopters, vendors are currently focusing on the development of swashplateless helicopter blades.

Further, the report states that challenges of non-destructive testing for fiber composite materials will restrict the growth in the market. The design and production methods used for the development of helicopter blades are focused on enabling high performance. Mostly, these initiatives reflect the development of lightweight rotor blades for providing high thrust. Presently, most helicopter structures are composed of fiber composite materials. Helicopter rotor blades consist of complex monolithic carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) laminates. Design and production processes are adapted for high performance FRP structures to reach the specified requirements for quality, functionality, and safety.
