Aircraft Tugs Market valued approximately USD XXX billion in 2017 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX% over the forecast period 2018-2025. Increase in air transportation across the world and growing need to replace aging equipment are the major factors driving the growth in Global Aircraft Tugs Market. However, aircraft tugs are operation specific, they are designed to perform specific tasks, therefore they cannot be used for another operations which is expected to hamper the market growth.

The Airport Tugs are mainly support vehicles which are used at the airports to push the airplane or aircraft backward away from the airport gateway. Generally, some of the aircrafts on the ground are unable to move in reverse direction without the use of the several aircraft tugs which provide ground support to airplanes across the world. In case, the airplane is required to shift to another place on the airport ground, then it will not be cost effective to start the engine. So, tugs will perform that job more efficiently both as safety perspective as well as a cost standpoint. The aircraft tugs have numerous applications and these tugs play an important role in the ground support services since they move immovable equipment. Moreover, growing trend of environment friendly tugs is expected to drive the global market in the near future.
