Global Military Aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Market 2017-2021

About Military Aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU)

Auxiliary power units (APUs) are installed in vehicles to provide energy for functions apart from propulsion. The primary function of APU is to power (electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic, depending on the design) the avionics. It also generates shaft power to start the main engine (where the turbines require a high rotational speed to provide sufficient air compression for self-sustenance), to operate the air conditioning of the aircraft, and to compress air during aircraft ground operation. Also, some APUs are connected to a hydraulic pump, allowing the pilot to operate the aircraft's hydraulic equipment (such as flaps or flight controls) before engine start.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global military aircraft auxiliary power unit (APU) market to grow at a CAGR of 3.71% during the period 2017-2021.
