Global Commercial Aircraft Air Management Systems Market 2017-2021
About Commercial Aircraft Air Management Systems
The air management system or environmental control system (ECS) helps in maintaining a comfortable and safe environment in the aircraft cabin. As modern aircraft mostly fly at high altitudes, they must be equipped with a pressurization and air conditioning system. Cabin pressurization, humidity, and air conditioning play a vital role in maintaining the level of passenger comfort. The cabin temperature, pressure, and air circulation should be within standardized limits during all stages of flight.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft air management systems market to grow at a CAGR of 4.94% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial aircraft air management systems market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the new installations sales value and retrofit/replacement market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Air Management Systems Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft air management systems market: Honeywell International, Liebherr, Meggitt, United Technologies Corporation (UTC), and Zodiac Aerospace
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aero Space Controls, Hartzell Aerospace (acquired by ITT Corporation), Senior Aerospace, Eaton, Thales, and Nord Micro.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Introduction of no-bleed system. US-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing pioneered the no-bleed system architecture in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner product line. The no-bleed systems help in the elimination of bleed manifold and the traditional pneumatic system. It converts the power source from bleed air to electric power for most functions such as wing anti-ice systems and air-conditioning packs. The no-bleed system in 787 accounts for 3% of fuel savings. Fuel consumption is also reduced since there is no loss of high-speed air. Conventional pneumatic systems develop more power than required, causing excess energy loss. The ducts that are used to pass the pressurized air are made of titanium and adds weight to the aircraft”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased production and procurement of new aircraft. Commercial aircraft OEMs are actively engaged in the development of new generation aircraft that offer both reduced fuel consumption and decreased noise and carbon emission. The demand for air travel is likely to get doubled in the next 20 years due to the growth in air travel in key countries like China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and the US. The year-on-year increase in air traffic has also essentialized the induction of new aircraft to facilitate the growing demand.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Failure of air management system. The high degree of electrification in an aircraft and increased load on the onboard power demand lead to considerable thermal management challenges. In aircraft applications, substantial amounts of heat are generated by the avionics system. It is a challenge for the thermal management system to remove the total waste heat while maintaining an increase in the minimum temperature. Thus, an effective thermal management system is required for each level of power generation, distribution, and conversion.
