Aircraft Generators Market by Current Type, Type, Power Rating, Aircraft Technology, Platform, End Use and Region

DUBLIN, July 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Aircraft Generator Market by Current Type (AC, DC), Type (VSCF, IDG, APU, Starter Generator), Power Rating, Aircraft Technology, Platform (Fixed-Wing, (OEM, Aftermarket) and Region – Global Forecast to 2027” report has been added to from offer.

The aircraft generator market is expected to grow from $5.2 billion in 2022 at $7.3 billion by 2027, to a CAGR 7.1% over the forecast period.

The aviation industry is experiencing major transformations in terms of technological advances in aircraft models. This gave rise to improvements in the power generation systems used in aircraft. More electric and hybrid-electric aircraft are part of the future of the aviation industry, with their adoption rate expected to increase significantly in the future.

Problems associated with conventional aircraft systems, such as cost, heating, fluid, and contamination, are eliminated in electrical solutions. Electric systems are up to 80% more efficient than hydraulic actuators because they have a more efficient motor (no heating issues) and less risk of component damage.

Electric systems are also environmentally friendly and safer to use than conventional systems, which are made up of hydraulic fluids that can damage skin and cause poisoning or infection due to high temperature. Hence, the demand for electrical solutions has been steadily increasing which, in turn, is driving the market for aircraft generators.

Fixed-wing segment to witness the highest growth in the forecast period

By platform, the fixed-wing segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The increase in air traffic contributes to the increased need for commercial aircraft in all regions. Rising border tensions between regions are also a major factor for countries investing in tactical aircraft. These factors are contributing to the growth of the fixed-wing aircraft segment in the aircraft generator market.

The VSCF generator will experience the highest growth in the forecast period.

Based on the type, VSCF generators are witnessing the highest growth over the forecast period. VSCF generators can adapt to flexible electrical architectures. That is, the components of VSCF generators can be distributed across the aircraft unlike IDG generators where they must be mounted closer to the engine. This factor is pushing aircraft designers to increasingly adopt VSCF generators in their systems.
