The Market

As Published by Global Market Insight May 2019

Aircraft Market size valued at over USD 30 billion in 2018 and is estimated to exhibit around 15% CAGR from 2019 to 2025. Rotary wing will showcase considerable demand in the more electric aircraft market revenue over the forecast timeframe. This can be credited to the rising investments by aircraft manufacturers for introducing low cost and reliable helicopters for a wide range of applications including military combat, surveillance, emergency backup, and tourism among others. The lower maintenance costs coupled with improving efficiency are some of the major factors enhancing the segment share. Moreover, the diversified range of applications including vertical take-off and landing operations, along with the capability to hover further improves the segment share over the study timeframe.
