The more electric aircraft market is projected to grow from USD 7.68 Billion in 2016 to USD 10.94 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.33% from 2016 to 2021. Optimized aircraft performance, reduced operating & maintenance cost, and increase in aircraft deliveries are some of the drivers for the more electric aircraft market across the world. China, India, Brazil, and Russia are the key countries expected to witness an increase in demand for more electric aircraft.

Based on technology, the more electric aircraft market has been segmented into power electronics, thermal management, safety systems & advanced materials, and energy storage devices. The power electronics segment is estimated to lead the more electric aircraft market in 2016. This can be attributed to the use of power electronics in major applications, such as power generators, convertors, and distributors, to achieve efficiency, variable power, and reduced weight.

Based on application, the power generation management segment is expected to lead the more electric aircraft market during the forecast period. This segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the more electric aircraft market in 2016, due to increase in more electric architecture in aircraft and the growing need for energy requirement. The increasing need for aircraft systems which are lightweight, fuel efficient, durable (to withstand severe climatic conditions), and requiring less maintenance schedules with short turnaround time has led to the increase in demand for more electric aircraft with better power generation management systems.

North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the more electric aircraft market in 2016. Economic growth and expansion of commercial as well as defense aviation are factors driving the North American more electric aircraft market. Growth of the market in North America is also attributed to the rise in delivery of fuel-efficient aircraft and the huge investment by OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and OCMs (original component manufacturers) present in the region, in research and development.

The more electric aircraft market in Europe is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Presence of big revenue pockets, OEMs, and component manufacturers, such as Safran SA (France) and Airbus Group (France), and rise in the defense and civil aviation spending of Russia and Germany are expected to boost the more electric aircraft market in Europe.

More Electric Aircraft Market

Aircraft manufacturers as well as OEMs need high initial capital to set up machinery, skilled workforce, state-of-the-art technical equipment, and integration platforms. Manufactured components also need to be approved by various authorities before they are installed on board the aircraft. Besides, it is difficult to obtain approval for the replacement of conventional systems with electric systems in an aircraft. These act as major restraints for the growth of the more electric aircraft market.

The more electric aircraft market is a diversified and competitive market with a large number of players. Key market players include Airbus Group (Netherlands), Boeing Company (U.S.), Safran SA (France), Honeywell International, Inc. (U.S.), and United Technologies Corporation (U.S.). The Boeing Company is the leading market player with presence in more than 65 countries across the globe. The company lays emphasis on R&D to develop solutions that meet clients’ requirements, in both the U.S. and international markets.
