“The more electric aircraft market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.33% during the forecast period”
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% during the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by factors such as rise in the number of aircraft deliveries, reduction in operating and maintenance cost, and need for fuel-efficient aircraft with less carbon emission, among others. Whereas, high amount of investment and lengthy clearance process for upgradation of components act as some of the major restraints for the more electric aircraft market. The manufactured components need approval from various authorities, such the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), before they are installed on board an aircraft. It is also difficult to obtain approval for the replacement of conventional systems with electric systems in an aircraft.

“The thermal management systems segment of the market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Based on technology, the thermal management systems segment of the more electric aircraft market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. As aircraft use electrical systems to optimize performances, efficient thermal management solutions are required to prevent the systems from damage due to heating. This factor is anticipated to drive the thermal management systems segment.

“The power generation management segment is estimated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period”
Based on application, the power generation management segment is projected to account for the largest share of the more electric aircraft market during the forecast period. With the growing aircraft electrical system power levels, the diversity of the power generation types is increasing as well. This is one of the key factors propelling growth of the power generation management application segment.

“North America estimated to account for the largest share of the market, whereas Europe projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period”
North America is expected to lead the more electric aircraft market during the forecast period. Countries in this region include the U.S. and Canada. The more electric aircraft market in North America is driven by the large number of original component manufacturers (OCMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), major technological upgradation of existing equipment by key players, and the presence of key market players, such as General Electric Co. (U.S.), The Boeing Company (U.S.), and United Technologies Corporation (U.S.). Whereas, the European region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increases civil aviation spending by Russia and Germany as well as the presence of big revenue pocket component manufacturer, such as Safran SA (France) and Airbus Group (Netherlands), are expected to boost the region’s more electric aircraft market.
