Urban Air Mobility Market

Wisk Aero (US) and EHang (China) are Leading Players in the Urban Air Mobility Market

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) can be defined as an aerial mode of transportation for passengers and cargo using manned (fixed wing, rotary wing, or fixed-wing hybrid). The UAM ecosystem includes systems which supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations. The estimated urban air mobility (UAM) market is USD 2.6 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 28.3 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 34.3% from 2025 to 2030.

As a result of their strong global presence in urban air mobility (UAM) market, players are focusing on developing and launching new products that will strengthen their position in the UAM market. These players are primarily focusing on entering new markets by launching technologically advanced and cost-effective platforms and infrastructure. Volocopter and aviation Capital Group LLC (ACG) signed an agreement in February 2022 to develop financing solutions to support the sale of volocopters family of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for up to USD 1 billion. Once the aircraft has been licenced for commercial use by the respective civil aviation authorities which includes European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), deliveries are expected to begin.
