(EnergyIndustry.Net, March 30, 2022 ) According to the new market research report "More Electric Aircraft Market by End User (Civil, Military), Aircraft System, Component, Application (Power Generation, Power Distribution, Power Conversion, Energy Storage), Aircraft Type (Fixed Wing, Rotary Wing), Region - Global Forecast to 2025", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the market is estimated to be USD 1.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 3.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period. Recent technological advancements in the field of power electronics, fault-tolerant architecture, electro-hydrostatic actuators, flight control systems, high-density electric motors, and power generation and conversion systems have fueled the adoption of MEA.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the more electric aircraft market significantly. Due to the closure of borders and air travel restrictions globally, many companies in the more electric aircraft market were compelled to halt manufacturing. This break in business operations is directly influencing the revenue of the more electric aircraft market. Even though some industries continued operations, delays in raw material supplies and the limited supply of produced goods capped production and reduced capacity utilization rates.
Based on aircraft system, propulsion segment projected to lead more electric aircraft market during the forecast period
Based on aircraft system, the more electric aircraft market is segmented into propulsion system and airframe system. Electrification of various propulsion and airframe systems enables aircraft to reduce carbon emissions and the overall operational cost. The rising focus of major OEMs such as Airbus on the development of electric propulsion systems is expected to drive the propulsion system segment during the forecast period.
Based on application, power distribution segment projected to lead more electric aircraft market during the forecast period
Based on application, the more electric aircraft is segmented into power generation, power distribution, power conversion, and energy storage. The power distribution system is highly flexible, fault-tolerant, and is controlled by a redundant microprocessor system. In this system, electrical power is supplied to the primary power distribution system, wherein the contactor control unit (CCU) and high-power contactor are located across generators, auxiliary power units (APU), batteries, and ground sources.
Based on end user, the civil segment accounts for the largest market size during the forecast period.
Based on end user, the more electric aircraft market is segmented into civil and military. The civil segment is estimated to account for a larger share in 2020 as compared to the military segment. Carbon and nitrogen oxide emissions, high fuel consumption, and high maintenance costs are some of the challenges in the civil segment.
