Lift control devices in aircraft play a key role in lifting the aircraft during take-off and landing. Aircraft lift control devices are used in aviation applications, such as in commercial, business, military aircraft. Lift control devices include flaps, boundary layer control and blown systems, slats and slots, and leading edge root extensions. A rise in global economic conditions has spurred favorable growth in aviation transportation by cutting prices, which in turn drives growth of the aircraft lift control device market.

Aircraft take-off and landing completely depend on the size of the wing; it determines the distance and speed at which the aircraft should take-off. An easy take off, i.e. one from a short distance and at a less speed is possible by increasing the size of the wing with the help of lift controlling devices, including flaps, spoilers, slats and slots.

Flap: A plain flap increases the maximum lift when required, i.e. during takeoff or landing. The lift increases with an increase in flap deflection. The flap is a movable part of the wing used to produce lift. When it is lowered, it re-shapes the wing section to give it more camber. This allows the aircraft to generate lift at a relatively low speed.

Spoilers: Spoilers efficiently distribute and streamline airflow over the wings. They are responsible for obtaining low static areas upon the wings, which increases the production of lift.

Slats & Slots: These are small devices installed at the wing leading edge ahead to enable the flow of air between slat and wing slot over the wing at high (AOA) acquisition-only authority. Slates energize air by using kinetic energy from below the wing to the airflow on top.

Leading Edge Flaps: At a high angle, leading edge flaps increase the camber of the wing. These are used in airliners, especially in regional jets.

Vortex generators: They produce high lift, enable short landing and take-off distances, and offer better aircraft control during a slow flight.

Being a developed economy, North America allows consumers to travel in airlines at relatively cheap costs and keeps consumer benefit as its first priority. Military and naval forces in the U.S. are using innovative aviation technology in fighters, jets, and bombers, which in turn drives growth of the aircraft lift control devices market. Europe holds the second spot in terms of market share, owing to the presence of leading market players. The region promotes liberalization of services, and features relatively cheap airline travel fares. Growth of the aviation industry in the APAC region is significant and it is expected to continue the same trend in the coming future. APAC may emerge as a dominant region in the aircraft lift control devices market, owing to the increasing number of airports, and decreasing air fares. Advancements, rise in technology and aggressive research and development initiatives drive the aircraft control devices market.
