The global aircraft engine market was valued at USD96.72 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.20% to reach USD166.81 billion by 2027. The flourishing tourism industry and increasing demand for the commercial aircraft industry are the primary factors driving the growth of the global aircraft engine market through the forecast period. Also, the ongoing technological advancements and increasing demand for fuel-efficient, high-performance aircraft engines are the other crucial factors expected to bolster the demand of the global aircraft engine market.

The growing expenditure capacity of consumers and high preference for comfort and convenience while traveling are expected to impact the aircraft demand across the globe. The ever-increasing air traffic makes aircraft manufacturers invest in research and development activities to find innovative solutions to create a safer and more reliable traveling experience for consumers. Fluctuating crude oil prices makes the manufacturers look for solutions to manufacture lightweight engines. The increasing demand for lightweight engines to boost engine efficiency makes aircraft manufacturers adopt 3D printing technology during the designing and manufacturing process. The use of novel materials like reinforced plastic, carbon fiber, and other composite materials to develop aircraft engines is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the global aircraft engine market.

The global aircraft engine market is segmented into engine type, aircraft type, platform, application, company, and regional distribution. Based on aircraft type, the market is divided into narrow body aircrafts, regional aircrafts, business aircraft, rotocrafts, wide body aircraft, and fighter aircraft. Narrow-body aircraft are holding the largest market share in 2021, with a market share of 30.80%, and are expected to maintain their dominance throughout the forecast period. Narrow-body aircrafts have higher fuel efficiency and low cost of operation, which is one of the major reasons they are preferred for short-haul routes. Also, the surging demand for domestic traveling and changing consumer preference to travel via airway is further expected to influence the market growth in the forecast period.

Pratt & Whitney (Raytheon Technologies Corporation), GE Aviation, Safran Aircraft Engines, Rolls-Royce plc, Honeywell International INC., MTU Aero Engines AG, Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC), Continental Aerospace Technologies, Textron Inc. are the major market players operating in the global aircraft engine market.
