Global Aircraft Generators Market

Dublin, July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Aircraft Generators Market by Current Type (AC, DC), Type (VSCF, IDG, APU, Starter Generator), Power Rating, Aircraft Technology, Platform (Fixed-wing, Rotary-wing), End Use (OEM, Aftermarket) and Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The Aircraft Generators Market is projected to grow from USD 5.2 billion in 2022 to USD 7.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period.

The aviation industry is witnessing major transformations in terms of technological advancements in aircraft models. This has given 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 significantly increase in the future.

Problems associated with conventional aircraft systems, such as cost, heating, fluid, and contamination, are eliminated in electrical solutions. Electrical systems are up to 80% more efficient than hydraulic actuators, as they come with a more efficient motor (without the issue of heating) and a lower risk of component damage.

Electrical systems are also environment-friendly and safer to use than conventional systems, which consist of hydraulic fluids that can damage the skin and cause poisoning or infection due to the high temperature. Therefore, the demand for electrical solutions has been continuously increasing, which, in turn, drives the aircraft generators market.

Fixed Wing segment to witness the highest growth in the forecast period

By Platform, the fixed-wing segment is expected to grow the highest in the forecast period. The increasing air traffic is contributing to the increasing requirements for commercial aircraft across regions. Increasing border tensions across regions are also a major factor for countries investing in tactical aircraft. These factors contribute to the growth of the fixed-wing segment in the aircraft generator market.

VSCF generator to witness the highest growth in the forecast period.

Based on type, the VSCF generators are witnessing highest growth in the forecast period. VSCF generators can accommodate flexible electrical architectures. That is the components of the VSCF generators can be spread out across the aircraft in contrast with IDG generators where it needs to be mounted closer to the engine. This factor is driving aircraft designers to increasingly adopt the VSCF generators into their systems.
