Aircraft Auxiliary Power Units Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global aircraft auxiliary power units (APU) market is anticipated to garner a large revenue by recording a CAGR of ~4% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2022-2030. In the modern years, aircraft auxiliary power unit market has been performing well and is expected to continue growing significantly in future. There is a huge competition among the manufacturers over the advanced technology being used in order to manufacture the auxiliary power units, which is projected to be beneficial for market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, some major factors such as increasing aircraft demand, from both, commercial as well as defense sector, and the rising need for producing aircraft with less noise, high fuel efficiency and carbon emissions are assessed to boost the market development in the forecasted time. The United States is one of the largest exporters of aircrafts in the world, and is responsible for exporting airplanes worth more than USD 135 billion by the end of 2020.


The market is segmented by end user into military aircrafts, commercial aircrafts and general aviation, out of which, the commercial aircraft segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the growing number of orders of commercial aircrafts across the world, and rise in passenger air traffic. For instance, the air traffic in 2018 was calculated to be approximately 4.4 billion people. The number up to 4.6 billion in the following year. Additionally, increasing number of commercial planes is evaluated to drive growth to the market segment in the near future. Moreover, on the basis of aircraft type, the segment for fixed wing aircrafts is estimated to occupy the largest market share, which can be credited to its properties such as longer flight time and the ability to map linear or very large areas.  CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
