Global Commercial Aircraft Electrical Systems Market 2017-2021
About Commercial Aircraft Electrical Systems
Aircraft electrical systems generate, distribute, and regulate power throughout the aircraft. The system mainly consists of power sources like batteries and generators, components like conversion devices, control devices, and protection devices, and power distribution systems that include busbar systems, cables, and wires. The electrical loads in an aircraft are mainly avionics, lighting systems, heating systems, and motors. The performance of an aircraft depends on the reliability and efficiency of electrical systems and subsystems, as modern aircraft largely rely on electrical power for both flight-critical and non-flight critical applications.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft electrical systems market to grow at a CAGR of 6.11% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial aircraft electrical systems market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the installation of electrical systems in commercial aircraft, namely narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, and regional jets, during the forecast period.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Electrical Systems Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft electrical systems market: Honeywell International, Zodiac Aerospace, Thales, United Technologies Corporation (UTC), and Safran
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Astronics, Crane Aerospace & Electronics, Fokker Technologies, and GE Aviation.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Introduction of electric environmental control system. The aerospace industry is facing several challenges in improving emission levels, fuel economy, and cost factor. Airlines are investing in the development of electric systems to replace pneumatic and mechanical systems. Electric architecture has become the emerging trend. The main purpose of shifting to the electric system is to reduce fuel consumption, maintenance, emissions, and costs. The electric-powered environmental control system (ECS), electric de-icing, electrical actuators, etc. are some of the systems under consideration. Boeing 787 and Airbus 380 use more electric architecture compared to other existing aircrafts. The increasing number of electrical components leads to more dissipated heat, which gives rise to the requirement of an improved and efficient thermal management system.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand for procurement of newer generation aircraft. Commercial aircraft OEMs are actively engaged in the development of new generation aircraft that have low levels of fuel consumption, noise, and carbon emission. The demand for air travel will likely double in the next 20 years with the increase in air travel in countries like China, Russia, India, Indonesia, and the US. The year-on-year increase in air traffic has also essentialized the induction of new aircraft to facilitate the growing demand. Since all aircraft are installed with electrical architecture involving wiring systems, power generation, and storage devices, the market for commercial aircraft electrical systems will grow parallelly with the growing orders for new aircraft.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Delay in aircraft delivery. As the aviation industry is moving forward with increasing technological advances and enhanced systems, manufacturers of various aircraft parts, components, and sub-assemblies are pressurized to resolve budget constraints and meet the increasing demand and rapid delivery requirements. These factors can have a considerable impact on quality.
