Aircraft engines with higher fuel efficiency, compact size, and lightweight are in demand today. The rise in demand for air travel has led airliners to increase their 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 advanced types of aircraft engines such as electric or hybrid engines, which are expected to fuel market growth. However, existing backlogs in aircraft deliveries are expected to restrain the aircraft engine market growth.


Negative Implications of COVID-19 on the Market

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has been ravaging several countries all over the world, and it has severely affected the aviation industry. Airliners across the world faced a financial crisis and cut capacity at incomparable rates due to the deficiency of passenger demand. Some of the airlines shut down completely. Most of the airlines canceled their orders, which directly affected the market as well.

  • In 2021, Airbus delivered 611 jets as compared to 566 jets in 2020.

  • Boeing delivered 302 aircraft in 2021 as compared to 157 in 2020.

This increase in aircraft deliveries positively affects this market. The market is expected to recover by 2022 owing to relaxation of restrictions imposed by governments.

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

Nowadays, several engine manufacturers are focused on the development of lightweight engines to reduce the overall weight of the aircraft to increase the fuel efficiency of the aircraft. GE Aviation has developed an 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 from deploying complex 3D printed fuel nozzles on the engine


Surge in Adoption of Cost-Effective and Fuel Efficient Aircraft is Refueling the Market Growth

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, and other composite materials that are lightweight and possess great strength is fueling the growth of the market.

  • In June 2020, GE Aviation distribution Japan was awarded a contract worth USD 203 million by the Japan Ministry of Defense (JMOD) for delivery of CF6-80C2K1F propulsion systems to power Japan Air Self Defense Force (JASDF) C-2 transport aircraft. The contract includes 12 units due for deliveries, starting in late 2021.

Increasing Commercial Aircraft Deliveries Anticipated to Fuel the Market Growth

There has been a rise in the disposable income of individuals owing to the economic growth in developing countries such as India and China. The rapidly expanding middle-class population in these countries is a major reason for the growing number of air passengers.

The increasing demand for commercial aircraft type from India is directly reflected in the supply chain of aircraft engines. Military aviation consists of fighter jets and transport aircraft. The increasing use of fighter jets and fixed-wing UAVs from several armed forces across the globe is expected to foster the market growth.

  • According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of passengers traveling by air is expected to double to 8.2 billion by 2037.

The high demand for air travel has led airlines to expand their aircraft fleet, which is expected to boost the market growth. The procurement of new generation aircraft has increased owing to their improved features and fuel efficiency. The increasing procurement of business jets and commercial helicopters is one of the key factors surging the product demand.


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 these engines, there will be no demand for new engines except for new aircraft. The market is expected to be hindered due to the longevity of engines.

Moreover, backlogs in the production of aircraft have drastically impacted the market growth. The production of aircraft is directly proportional to aircraft engines, hence backlogs in the production of aircraft is restraining the deliveries of aircraft engines.
