Increasing emphasis on the reduction of emissions and aircraft noise is driving market growth
The aircraft electrification market is projected to grow from USD 3.4 billion in 2022 to USD 8.6 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 12.2% during the forecast period. The increasing need to reduce carbon emissions and control environmental pollution are expected to drive demand. However, limited range and capacity of electric aircraft are limiting the overall growth of the market.

  • Based on system, the propulsion systems segment is projected to lead the aircraft electrification market by 2030
  • Based on system, the propulsion systems segment is projected to lead the aircraft electrification market by 2030. Penetration of electric components in propulsion systems is projected to enhance the power for take-off, thereby enabling the replacement of turbofans with liquid-cooled electric motors. The adoption of electrical propulsion systems is majorly attributed to the increasing emphasis on reduction in burning fuel, leading to a substantial decrease in atmospheric emissions.
  • Based on platform, the business & general aviation segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the aircraft electrification market over the forecast period

The business & general aviation segment is expected to witness higher growth compared to other segments in the aircraft electrification market. The significant market growth of the segment is attributed to increasing aircraft electrification projects for domestic air transport. The increasing focus of governing bodies on the reduction of emissions in domestic air transport is driving the market for the business & general segment.

Europe is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2022 Government bodies such as the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the European Defence Agency (EDA), the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and the European Air Transport Command, among others, play a crucial role in ensuring transportation safety and addressing various issues related to air transport such as carbon emissions and noise pollution, among others. The presence of key manufacturers of electric aircraft in Europe including Rolls-Royce (UK), Safran Group (France), GKN Aerospace (UK), Airbus (Netherlands), Thales Group (France), and Turbomeca (France), among others is driving the growth of the aircraft electrification market in Europe.
