Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104875 | Status : Ongoing



An auxiliary power unit (APU) is an electrical power source of aircraft that provides energy for the functioning of the aircraft system except for propulsion. The key functionality of an airplane APU is to give the ability to turn over the aircraft’s engine. The aircraft auxiliary power unit market experiencing significant growth during the forecast period owing to rising demand for the fuel-efficient auxiliary power unit. Moreover, the increased development of more electric aircraft to gain a high economy at reduced fuel consumption is expected to boost market growth during 2020-2027.

The traditional auxiliary power unit generates large noise, which resulted in an increase in noise pollution, thus to reduce the noise pollution, the key manufacturers have increased their focus on the development of low noise APU. The advanced aircraft APU offers high performance, low fuel consumption, and reduced noise among others. In addition to this, the moving trend towards the adoption of more electric aircraft is expected to expand the market size during 2020-2027.

Key Market Driver -

• Rising demand for fuel efficient aircraft auxiliary power unit to boost market growth • Development of low noise APU to reduce noise pollution to aid growth
