Electric Aircraft Market by Type (Light Jet, Ultra-Light Aircraft) by Technology (All Electric, Full Hybrid, More Electric Hybrid) by Component (Electric Motor, Battery) by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, South America) – Global Forecast (2019 to 2027)

Electric Aircraft Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

Global Electric Aircraft Market: Summary

The Global Electric Aircraft Market is estimated to reach USD 138.8 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 3.5 %.

Electric aircraft are aircraft powered by electric motors. Ground power cables, batteries, solar cells, fuel cells, ultracapacitors, and power beaming are various methods used for supplying electricity to aircraft. The use of electric aircraft possesses advantages such as efficiency, reliability, reduce noise pollution, and better environmental effects, and among others which have made electric aircraft more popular.

Electric Aircraft Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emission

Aviation is one of the fastest growing sources for greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon dioxide is the largest component of aircraft emission. This eliminated gas mixes with the atmosphere causing global warming. However, changing the earth’s climate has shifted the focus towards a more efficient and cleaner form of transport, which in turn has boosted the use of electric aircraft. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), 2% of global carbon emission is by commercial aviation. Electric aircraft will help to reduce 50% of CO2 emission by reducing fuel use. Furthermore, aerospace firms are taking initiatives to reduce the growing contribution to greenhouse gas emission, by replacing the fuel engine with electric engines. Thus, the use of electric aircraft has helped to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, boosting the growth of the electric aircraft market.   

  • Increasing Initiatives to Reduce Fuel Consumption

According to Our World In Data, the global fossil fuel consumption in 2017 was 1,33,853.38 TWh, while their production is expected to decline as these are non-renewable energy resources. Reduce fuel consumption is one of the major concern in the aviation industry. However, the use of electric aircraft helps to reduce the fuel cost significantly, while simultaneously saving from hazardous fuel waste. Additionally, oil production price has peaked in recent year which has developed the need to replace the use of conventional fuel. However, electricity is cheaper than conventional fuel and has been incorporated in aircraft. Thus, owing to these factors, initiatives are made to reduce the fuel consumption which has expected to boost the growth of the electric aircraft market.

Market Restraint:

  • Significant Investment Incurred in Development of Electric Aircrafts

Research institutions such as NASA, and others along with aerospace firms are making investments in developing more efficient electric aircraft. Investment is required in different stages of the electric aircraft industry such as in research & development, system integration, manufacturing, and assembly stages. However, investment required in these stages are relatively higher owing to the higher precision required during the manufacturing of electric aircraft. Thus, investment incurred in development of electric aircraft may hinder the growth of market.
