Global Turboprop Aircraft Propeller System Market 2017-2021

About Turboprop Aircraft Propeller System

A turboprop engine comprises a gas turbine that is driven by propellers. Most of the energy (gas flow) generated by the turbine is used for driving the propeller and compressor. The remaining energy generated by the turbine provides a residual thrust. A propeller is used for converting the rotational motion into thrust. It consists of a power-driven hub that is attached to several blades and rotates about the longitudinal axis. The propellers in earlier aircraft versions were made of solid or laminated wood, which was later replaced by metal. Currently, composite materials are increasingly used for propellers. Propeller-driven aircraft are mostly suitable for subsonic airspeeds up to 450 miles per hour. When the propeller rotates beyond this speed, the blade tip reaches supersonic speeds, and the shockwaves that get generated on the blades degrade the efficiency of the entire engine.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global turboprop aircraft propeller system market to grow at a CAGR of 3.47% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Turboprop Aircraft Propeller System Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global turboprop aircraft propeller system market: AEROSILA, Dowty Propellers, Hartzell Propeller, and United Technology Corporation (UTC)

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AVIA PROPELLER, MT-Propeller Entwicklung, HOFFMANN PROPELLER, and McCauley Propeller Systems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Use of next-generation composite materials for propeller models. The blades have complex airfoils that are designed to optimize the performance of the aircraft over a broad range of design criteria. The design process places emphasis on factors like take-off performance, cruise performance, noise, and ground clearance. These designs are created using powerful computer-aided design (CAD) software to provide the optimal combination of the airfoil, twist distribution, and shape.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Preference for turboprop aircraft to cater to regional passenger traffic. Global air travel has changed significantly over the past decade with major improvements in associated technologies. The continuous adoption of LCCs and their increased penetration in emerging economies have made air travel more accessible. APAC has been witnessing robust growth in air travel, which is mostly driven by the rapid penetration of LCCs or the no-frills business model. India, China, and Japan are expected to register the highest increase in passenger traffic in the next 20 years, which will also reflect the induction of new generation turboprop aircraft to serve regional connectivity.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Occurrences of technical disruptions and engine failures. Technical failures associated with turboprop engines poses a major challenge for the market growth. Due to technical complexities, many aircraft OEMs have started offering regional jets with turbofan engine options, which slows down the demand for turboprop engines. Numerous accidents have been reported of aircraft crashes occurring due to loss of engine power. In July 2016, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) ATR 42-500 had reportedly crashed due to the failure of the right engine, leading to the death of 48 passengers and five crew members. Since 2000, PIA has lost 10 aircraft including the one in the 2016 incident. In February 2015, Taiwanese airline TransAsia Airways (operation ceased in November 2016) lost its ATR 72-600 aircraft due to failure in its one engine.
