The aircraft ignition system produces a spark to burn-up the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder. These systems are used to produces a spark and deliver it through an electrode of the spark plug in the aircraft engine cylinder. This enables the proper consumption of the fuel/air mixture inside the combustion chamber. Moreover, the aircraft ignition system has two types, electronic ignition system, and a magneto ignition system. Previously, an electronic ignition system for responding to airplane engines, especially in test airplanes, has been formed into the bolt-on and off-the-shelf items.

The technological improvement in the aircraft ignition system, growing adoption of unmanned aerial vehicles with aircraft ignition systems are driving the market growth. In addition to this, the growing trend towards the development of the ignition control system for unmanned aerial vehicles further supports expanding the market growth in the near future.

The rapid acceptance of the electronic ignition system, the growing integration of aircraft ignition systems in unmanned aerial vehicles, and the growing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft systems are the key factors that drive the market growth during the forecast period. However, stringent aircraft system design regulation and high weight and design complexity associated with the electronic ignition system are expected to hamper the market growth during the review period. Despite this, the growing focus on the development of low weight and the miniaturized system is estimated to create ample market growth opportunities.

Market Segmentation:

Based on type the market is segmented into an electronic ignition system and magneto ignition system. Among these, the electronic ignition system is the fastest-growing segment owing to the growing replacement of the traditional ignition system. An electronic ignition system helps to reduce carbon emission which drives its demand on a global level. By component, the market is divided into exciters, igniters, ignition leads, spark plugs, and others. Among these, ignition leads are anticipated to grow with the fastest growth rate owing to its increased demand to offer more safety, whereas the spark plug is estimated to dominate the market in the base year. Based on engine type, the market is segmented into the reciprocating engine and turbine engine. By platform, the market is divided into fixed-wing aircraft, rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Based on end-user the market is segmented into aftermarket and OEM. From a geographical standpoint, the market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the world.

Key Insights 

  • Adoption of Aircraft Ignition System by Type

  • Aircraft deliveries by platform

Regional Analysis:

The aircraft ignition system market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the world. North America has registered a large market share in the base year. The dominance of North America is estimated to remain the same throughout the forecast period owing to the presence of various key OEMs, including Transdigm Group, Inc., Electroair electronic ignition system (EIS), Woodward Inc., and others. Moreover, the rapid adoption of innovative, high fuel-efficient technology-based system is driving the market growth in North America.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow with a significant growth rate during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the rising demand for commercial aircraft in the region owing to continuously expanding air traffic in economies such as China, India, and South Korea. The rest of the world would display the sluggish growth in the market during 2020-2027 owing to declined deliveries of commercial aircraft as a result of the spread of COVID-19 across the world.
