Air-to-Air Refueling Market Dynamics:

Driver: Increasing demand for air-to-air refueling systems to support overseas deployments

There has been an increase of air sorties flown for long distances away from carriers or ground bases, making refueling a necessary mission element. For instance, Asia Pacific is witnessing an increase in military bases being developed by foreign countries in the region. The US Department of Defense (DoD) anticipates China to establish additional military bases around the world because of its investments in the One Belt, One Road initiative, that was initiated in 2013. Currently, Beijing has one overseas military base in Djibouti but is expected to add more military bases in the coming years. India has also established itself as a strong military power, with its armed forces articulating the need to operate beyond the country’s immediate borders. In 2018, the country secured access to naval facilities in the Middle East, near the Strait of Hormuz. In the same year, India and Seychelles signed an agreement, valid for 20 years, to build an airstrip and a naval jetty on Assumption Island. Russia also plans to establish a long-term military presence in Latin America and the Middle East. In 2017, the country signed a long-term agreement to increase its military presence in Syria as well as secure rights to its airbase. This agreement enables Russia to deploy forces in Syria for the next 50 years. Thus, the demand for air-to-air refueling is expected to grow during the forecast period, as there is a need for air-to-air refueling to support the overseas deployment of military aircraft.

Restraint: Vulnerability against ground-based attacks

Large tanker aircraft, which serve as the source of fuel for air-to-air refueling operations, lack maneuverability and hence can be easily targeted by ground-based air defense systems. Though these aircraft are equipped with certain countermeasures such as flares, the large size of such aircraft render them susceptible to enemy fire, especially to ballistic missiles which can change its orientation and course according to its target. Furthermore, tanker aircraft are very heavy and slow moving as compared to the recipient aircraft, hence they may be vulnerable to enemy fire during an air-to-air refueling procedure, as both the donor and the recipient aircraft are required to maintain a certain speed and heading for the system to attach and transfer fuel. Such vulnerabilities restrict the use of such resources in highly contested spaces.

Opportunity: Development of autonomous refueling systems

The goal of autonomous refueling is to integrate manned and unmanned operations seamlessly. Hence, Automated Air-to-Air Refueling (A3R) will be designed to utilize the existing standardized voice command and control (C2) messages and procedures that are translated into data link messages that the UAV’s computer can process. According to the US Joint Air Power Competence Centre (JAPCC), A3R procedures will be developed to accommodate current manned AAR standards and procedures. In the case of UAVs, they can safely maintain flight and execute a maneuver by selecting a pre-defined action without supervision. In manned aircraft, capabilities to perform automated refueling are included, wherein the engagement process is expected to be an automated task, and the pilot would only monitor (safety observer). Currently, A3R is at its conceptual stage and various developments are carried out to introduce it in the market. However, for A3R to become a reality, more sophisticated control systems must be developed, including relative positioning systems, data link systems, and remote aerial vehicle operators.

Challenge: High installation and maintenance cost

Though air-to-air refueling is a technology aspired by several countries, the associated high cost oof installation and maintenance of a Multipoint Refueling System (MPRS) restricts its widespread adoption. Currently, a MPRS costs around USD 5 to 7 million per aircraft and accounts for around 5,000 to 7,000 labor hours. The average life of an air-to-air refueling tanker is 40-60 years, along with periodic maintenance and sizeable investment to maintain the tanker throughout its life. Further, when this tanker starts aging, the possibility of corrosion and material degradation sets in, thus increasing its maintenance costs. For instance, the US DoD decided to retire a part of its fleet of KC-135 aircraft due to increasing material degradation and maintenance costs. Technical expertise is also required to use and maintain the proper functioning of aerial refueling systems and ensure effective integration of system components. Highly skilled personnel are required to perform aerial refueling operations. An air-to-air refueling aircraft also requires extensive training to operate and comes with one of the most difficult flight maneuvers for a pilot. For instance, the tanker and receiver aircraft should be 35 feet apart during boom refueling and about 80 feet apart in hose and drogue refueling. The airflow around the tanker and the receiver aircraft is complex and makes maneuvering of the aircraft a challenge.

Based on component, the fuel tank segment dominated market share throughout the forecast period

Based on component, the air-to-air refueling market is segmented into pumps, valves, nozzles, hoses, boom, probes, pods, fuel tanks, and others. The growth of the fuel-tank segment of the market can be attributed to the enhanced investment towards the procurement of tanker aircraft that are designed to supply fuel to receiver aircraft platforms by several nations across the globe, including the US, UK, France, etc.

Based on system, the boom refueling segment is projected to witness fastest growth by 2027

Based on system, the air-to-air refueling market is segmented into probe & drogue, boom refueling, and autonomous. The boom refueling segment is projected to lead market share as most current generation tanker aircraft use boom refueling systems for transferring fuel to receiver aircraft. Since the boom is rigid, it is capable of a higher transfer rate as compared to probe and drogue, thereby favoring its integration in most leading tanker aircraft models.

Based on aircraft type, the fixed wing segment held the leading market share in 2022

Based on aircraft type, the air-to-air refueling market is segmented into fixed wing and rotary wing. The higher induction of fixed wing aircraft, including combat and specal mission aircraft, is anticipated to drive the fixed wing segment of the market. The development of new extended range variant of such aircraft with air-to-air refueling capability greatly enhances the strike capabilities of nations, therby driving their procurement.

Based on type, the manned segment held the leading market share in 2022

Based on type, the air-to-air refueling market is segmented into manned and unmanned aircraft. Though there is rapid induction of UAVs for a plethora of missions, they do not possess the necessary capability for air-to-air refueling due to size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints which hampers their payload capacity. Thus, the manned aircraft segment is expected to dominate market share during the forecast period.

Based on end user, the linefit segment accounts for the largest market size during the forecast period

Based on end user, the air-to-air refueling market is segmented into OEM and aftermarket. The OEM segment is forecasted to dominate market share as new models of most military aircraft are being made available with air-to-air refueling capability as a standard fitment. However, there is also scope for modernizing older aircraft with such capabilities using aftermarket kits, however the feasibility of such an upgrade is limited.
