Growth Drivers

Growing need for advanced technology in order to meet the demands

In the present world scenario, it has become very important for the airports to be technologically advanced as well as equipped enough so as to serve the increasing air traffic without any cancellations or interruptions. This has led to several airports bringing in new technologies into airports which are ultimately estimated to lead to the growth of aircraft de-icing market in the upcoming years owing to the rising demand for advanced technology. 

Increase in the number of crashes owing to snowy weather conditions

Aircraft de-icing has become an important procedure for the aircraft safety owing to the accumulation of ice which is predicted to possibly hamper the capability of a plane to fly efficiently as well as safely. Additionally, the increasing number of aircrafts is one of the principal motivator for the development of this market. As the number of uncertainties caused by weather conditions is growing rapidly, the market for aircraft de-icing is projected to grow in the upcoming years.

Market Size and Forecast

The global market growth for aircraft de-icing is increasing rapidly owing to the growth in air passenger traffic as well as subsequent demand for modernization, new aircrafts and expansion of existing airports for the need of safe take-off and landing operations during wintry weather conditions. Additionally, there are various types of aircraft de-icing solutions such as electrical heating, weeping wing technology, alloys de-icing technology, ultrasound technology and others. Advancements as well as innovations in these technologies are anticipated to lead to further growth of the aircraft de-icing market in the upcoming years.

The global aircraft de-icing market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. The market is segmented by fluid into type I, type II, type III and type IV, out of which, type I segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share as type I fluids are highly used for removing the snow, ice or any frost layers from the critical surfaces of aircraft such as fuselage, engine inlets and others. This fluid is generally applied before type II, III and IV, whereas the latter three provide longer ice protection and more holdover time.


De-icing technique can cause airplane controllability issues

Airplane de-icing can leave residue in critical areas such as wings or stabilizers. During suitable weather conditions, the residue can expand or rehydrate and form into a gel-like substance that expands to many times the original size. The gel can freeze during flight and if located in the component of flight control, movements for control surface may be restricted which can lead to issues in controllability of airplanes. This factor is predicted to act as a restrain which can limit the growth of aircraft de-icing market in upcoming years.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
