Aircraft Engine Market
Aircraft Engine Market

The global Aircraft Engine Market is expected to grow at a growth rate of around 9% during the forecast period. An aircraft engine is a component of an aircraft’s propulsion system that produces mechanical power. Aircraft engines are most often either light piston engines or gas turbines. The growing commercial aircraft operations and rise in military aircraft operations are some of the most prominent factors impacting the aircraft engine market. In addition, factors such as increasing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft engines, increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for commercial and military applications, and growing collaboration for developing advanced aircraft engines are boosting the growth of the aircraft engine market. For instance, GE Aerospace extended a contract with Tata Advanced for aircraft engine components. The multi-year long-term contract is valued at over USD 1 Bn and will extend well beyond 2030.

Some of the major players operating in the market include General Electric, Rolls-Royce plc, Raytheon Technologies Corporation, Safran, Honeywell International Inc., Textron Inc., International Aero Engines AG, The Williams Companies Inc., MTU Aero Engines AG, Eurojet are some of the key players in the market.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, turbofan engine segment to witness robust CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on type, the market is classified into turboprop, turbofan, turboshaft, and piston engines. Among these, the turbofan engine is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. This is because most modern airliners use turbofan engines because of their high thrust and good fuel efficiency. This type of engine is commonly used on wide-body airliners like the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A300.

“Amongst technology, the fixed-wing segment held a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on platform, the market is divided into fixed-wing aircraft, rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned ariel vehicles. The fixed-wing segment catered to a prominent share of the global aircraft engine market in 2020. Flexibility, data security, high speed, and low latency are the most prominent factors driving the growth of this segment. The on-premises deployment provides physical control to the enterprises over the data, it keeps access to critical data limited to the enterprises only.

“Asia Pacific held a notable share in the market in 2020”

The Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold a prominent share of the global aircraft engine market during the forecast period majorly due to the rising defense budget of major economies in the region. This has created the demand for the procurement of military helicopters and fighter jets, which is expected to boost the growth of the market. For instance, in 2021, the Indian government spent USD 76.6 Bn on its military, out of which 39% was allocated to the Indian Air Force which was used majorly to build military aircraft indigenously.
