The Urban air mobility (UAM) transportation systems are being developed to address the pressing issue of traffic congestion, especially in the major cities of the world.  The aircraft used in UAM is making progress along both manned and unmanned directions. While conventional civil helicopters are the most common type of aircraft that are being used in UAM currently multicopters (such as the Volocopter) or so-called tiltwing convertiplane aircraft.

A vertiport is essentially a landing and take-off infrastructure for Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft, which can include air taxis, passenger aerial vehicles, cargo aerial vehicles, and air ambulances. The term "vertiport" is derived from the words "vertical" and "airport", and it is a defined area that is specifically designed to accommodate the unique needs of VTOL aircraft.

In the UAM industry sustainability is a major focus, with electric propulsion and the use of renewable energy sources being prioritized to decrease environmental impact. Collaboration and partnerships between companies and organizations in the UAM industry are being formed to push technology forward and bring products to market.  Major aerospace companies like Airbus and Boeing apart from ride hailing apps are investing heavily in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft technology.          

Market Forecast’s latest report “Urban Air Mobility and Vertiports - Market and Technology Forecast to 2031” examines, analyzes, and predicts the evolution of Urban Air Mobility technologies, markets, and outlays (expenditures) over the next 8 years – 2023 -2031.  It also examines the UAM markets geographically, focusing on the top 95% of global markets, in the United States, Europe, and Asia. In this report we analyze the market size of the Global Urban Air Mobility market for the period 2023 -2031. We primarily focus on the key markets – Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Africa. As of now the United States remains the largest market UAM. European Union and China are emerging markets. Throughout the report we show how UAM is used today to add real value. To provide the most thorough and realistic forecast, this report provides a twin-scenario analysis, including “steady state”, emergence of UAM aircraft technology.
