On the basis of aircraft type, military aircrafts holds the largest market share of 59.0% in global aircraft auxiliary power unit market, owing to the higher cost of military aircraft APU than the commercial aircraft APU and the larger number of military aircrafts are in use is leading to more revenue and capturing greater market share.  After military aircrafts, commercial aircrafts have started using APU’s intensively to support the development of new generation aircraft with reduced noise, carbon emission and fuel consumption.

Aircraft auxiliary power unit market outlook 2016-2024, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis from industry experts. The report covers the competitive landscape and current position of major players in the aircraft auxiliary power unit market. The report also includes porter’s five force model, SWOT analysis, company profiling, business strategies of market players and their business models. Global aircraft auxiliary power unit market report also recognizes value chain analysis to understand the cost differentiation to provide competitive advantage to the existing and new entry players.

Market Trends, Drivers and Challenges

According to our global market study on the basis of extensive primary and secondary research, “The rising trend is the use of technology to make APU more efficient, by reducing its size, tackling overheating issues, reducing noise and vibrations. The new aircrafts such as Airbus A320 and Boeing 747 are using APU for better aircraft performance.” The major trend is the presence of high end interiors in advanced aircrafts and growing electrification of aircraft systems.

According to the report, major driving factor for expansion of global aircraft auxiliary power unit market is the high demand for using APU, hence the current demand has reached to 95,000 units of global annual production. The innovative features of APU has led it to 2nd position i.e. 20.4 % market share of auxiliary power unit market in the total aviation gas turbine market that generates pressurized air for main engine to start, provides power to cockpit and cabin areas for which main engine fuel has not to be wasted, and acts as supportive engine in case of failure of main engine.

Further, the major challenge for this industry is the fuel cells, substitute to the use of APU in aircrafts. They are non-polluting because of using liquid hydrogen. Using fuel cells will cut consumption of plane fuel by 15% and reduce carbon emissions. Using Fuels cells will drastically decline the APU market.
