The global aircraft engine market size was valued at USD 79.93 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 85.44 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.27% during the forecast period.

Aircraft engines with higher fuel efficiency, compact size, and lightweight are in demand today. The rise in demand for air travel has led the airliners to increase its aircraft fleet size. This demand for new aircraft is expected to drive the growth of the market. Moreover, the rising issue of reducing the carbon footprint has diverted the focus on the development of electric or hybrid engines, which is expected to fuel market growth. However, factor such as existing backlogs in aircraft deliveries is expected to restrain the market growth.

Implications of COVID-19 on the Market

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has been ravaging in several countries all over the world, and it has severely affected the aviation industry. Passenger air travel has halted due to the need for social distancing. International travel is also restricted to contain its spread. Airliners across the world are facing a financial crisis and are cutting capacity at incomparable rates due to the deficiency of passenger demand. Some of the airlines have shut down completely. Most of the airlines have canceled their orders, which will directly affect this market as well.

Airbus, which is one of the largest commercial aircraft manufacturers, has reduced its production rates by a third in this pandemic period.

3D Printed Parts for Aircraft Engines Will Spur Opportunities for the Market

Nowadays, several engine manufacturers are focused on the development of the lightweight engine to reduce the overall weight of the aircraft to increase the fuel efficiency of the aircraft. GE Aviation has developed and advanced turboprop engine, which is the first commercial aircraft engine with a large number of 3D printed components. The engine designers have reduced 855 separate parts down to 12 parts. This is expected to reduce the engine weight, which will require less fuel to achieve the same speed. Additive manufacturing makes the product durable and stronger. CFM international SA is developing an advanced LEAP engine that will be installed in The Boeing Company’s and Airbus’s new aircraft fleet of narrow-body aircraft. 15% reduction in fuel burn and emissions is resulted by deploying complex 3D printed fuel nozzles on the engine.


Rising Demand for Cost-Effective and Fuel Efficient Aircraft to Propel the Growth of the Market

Major OEMs and aircraft manufacturers around the world are focused on developing fuel-efficient aircraft to reduce fuel consumption. The rising prices of fuel have encouraged manufacturers to focus on the fuel efficiency of the aircraft. The fuel efficiency of an aircraft can be increased by reducing the overall weight of the aircraft, which has led several manufacturers to develop lightweight engines to reduce the overall weight of an aircraft. Usage of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber. reinforced plastic or other composite materials that are lightweight and possess great strength is fueling the growth of the market.

Increasing Commercial Aircraft Deliveries Anticipated to Fuel the Market Growth

Improving economies of various developing countries in Asia-Pacific, such as China and India, has led to an increase in demand for air travel. This rising passenger traffic has created a demand for aircraft fleet expansion. The rise in aircraft deliveries in the Asia-Pacific region will create demand for these engines. Moreover, the replacement of conventional engines in the old fleet with technologically advanced engines is also expected to propel the growth of the market


The Longevity of Aircraft Engines Expected to Hamper the Market Growth

Aircraft engines are designed to have long life cycles. But it could be a factor that hinders the growth of the market. Due to the long life of the aircraft engine, there will not be demand for new engines except for new aircraft. The MRO market is expected to be hindered due to the longevity of engines.
