The use of electricity for propulsion in aircraft systems, typically powered by hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical systems, is known as aircraft electrification. In this industry, electrification technology is applied in progressively more advanced stages, starting with more electric aircraft and ending with fully electric aircraft. Three main categories of aircraft use various levels of electrification technology: more electric aircraft, hybrid electric aircraft, and completely electric aircraft.

Market Dynamic


Installing conventional equipment inside an airplane is difficult, and maintaining such systems requires a lot of time and work. As it has fewer moving parts than traditional systems, electrification of aircraft significantly lowers maintenance expenses. Due to their advantages, major aircraft OEMs like Airbus and Boeing produce more electric aircraft. Similarly, the reduction in operating expenses brought about by electrification presents an enormous opportunity for developing hybrid and completely electric aircraft.


Airport recharging facilities will be required since an airplane with many batteries will need them, and the current infrastructure does not have enough of them. The existing infrastructure growth requirements are made more complex by the electrification of an aircraft. Understanding the total demands for recharging facilities requires appropriate infrastructure sizing, which includes evaluating the number and kind of charge points, their electrical consumption in terms of energy and power, and the associated economics.


Advanced airplane applications typically require more energy, necessitating batteries with large energy storage capacities and better safety features. Despite the potential of lithium-ion batteries, numerous energy storage system producers in Japan, China, South Korea, the US, and Europe think that lithium-ion battery performance can be greatly increased. As a result, extensive research is done to enhance lithium-ion battery performance and create new related battery technologies.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is the batteries segment expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period?

Due to their ability to deliver the most power in the smallest mass of any traditional battery, lithium-ion batteries are the cells of choice for aircraft. Still, they have one drawback: they are susceptible to short-circuiting and “thermal runaway,” which can result in fire.

Why is the hybrid electric segment witnessing the highest growth during the forecast period?

In the market for aircraft electrification throughout the anticipated period, the hybrid electric category will experience the highest increase. Hybrid electric technology enables aircraft to fly longer distances with substantially greater MTOW than completely electric aircraft. Compared to a traditional airplane, hybrid electric aircraft also helps lower emissions, noise, and fuel consumption. These elements drive the need for hybrid electric aircraft.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • With a market share of 40.2%, the North American market is home to both aircraft and electrical component producers. The expansion of electrification projects and the advancement of innovative air transportation platforms drive the demand for aircraft electrification in this region.
  • The European region is anticipated to grow considerably through the forecast period at a CAGR. The rapid adoption of the electric aircraft propulsion market is caused by the growing awareness of the need to reduce environmental pollution. Consequently, it is anticipated that Europe will experience tremendous growth.

Competition Analysis

The rise in new projects and the emergence of numerous startups supporting electrification in the aviation industry are further factors influencing the growth of the electrified aircraft propulsion market.

The recent developments in the Global Electrified Aircraft Propulsion Market:

  • In February 2022, Boeing will be powered by the modified Saab 340B aircraft and CT7-9B turboprop engines used in the GE Aviation’s hybrid-electric propulsion system flight testing. Services for aircraft modification, system integration, and flight testing will be offered to GE Aviation by Boeing and its affiliate Aurora Flight Sciences.
  • In February 2022, to create the ATL-100H, a hybrid electric variant of the ATL-100 regional aircraft, magnetic established a partnership with the Brazilian aerospace company DESAER.
