Aircraft Generators Market

Honeywell (US) and Safran (France) are Leading Players in the Aircraft Generators Market

The main source of electrical power on an aircraft is a generator that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy via applications of electromagnetics. The mechanical energy input for a generator comes from the engine in the form of a rotating shaft attached to the generator. The evolution of the aviation industry has also led to technological advancements in various components, such as generators, rectifiers, and actuators. The market for aircraft generators is growing as more aircraft subsystems are being technologically advanced and electrically powered to enhance the overall efficiency and reduce emissions.

The Aircraft Generator Market is projected to grow from USD 5.2 billion in 2022 to USD 7.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The increase in load for electrical power has come about as electrical power sources for various aircraft subsystems, such as pumps, compressors, and flight controls replace mechanical power sources. The main source of electrical power for an aircraft is a generator. Due to the need for high amounts of reliable electrical power among current and future aircraft, there has been an increasing trend of aircraft generators to be designed for reliability, stability, power density, and long-term durability.
