Aircraft environmental control systems are designed to maintain comfort temperatures in cockpits, cabins, and cargo areas of airplanes and helicopters whether on ground or in flight mode. Aircraft environmental control systems provide air supply, thermal control, and cabin pressurization to the crew and passengers. The aircraft environmental control systems are powered by electrical system rather than conventional Pneumatic & hydraulic system, as the former allows higher reliability, reduces maintenance cost and fuel use, and enables more dispatch availability. The aircraft environmental control systems market is projected to grow from USD 3.27 Billion in 2016 to USD 4.22 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.34% from 2016 to 2022. Rise in air traffic, especially in the Asia-Pacific and European regions is resulting in an increase in aircraft deliveries and thus, is driving the growth of the aircraft environmental control systems market.
With the introduction of various technologies such as digital and no-bleed ECS, the efficacy and performance of the systems have increased manifold. The use of more rugged bleed air components to reduce maintenance and logistic support is prevalent in this market.
Liebherr-International AG (Switzerland) is a major player in the aircraft environmental control systems market. The company focuses on contracts through extensive R&D activities. The company has a wide product portfolio consisting of aircraft environmental control systems. For instance, in 2016, Liebherr received a contract from Embraer to supply control systems for flaps and slats. This control system was installed on Embraer narrow body aircraft family, E jet E-2 family.
Honeywell International, Inc. is another major player in the aircraft environmental control systems market that focuses on enhancing its existing products and services to meet the requirements of customers as well as exploit market opportunities. The company is also planning to conduct funded R&D activities under the U.S. government contracts. One of the most significant strategies adopted by Honeywell International, Inc. is gaining contracts to expand its business and customer base. The company received several contracts, which resulted in the expansion of the company’s defense business. For instance, in 2015, Honeywell received a contract from Alenia Aermacchi for cabin pressure control systems designed for aircraft cooling, cockpit pressurization, and temperature control.
