Key Market Trends

The Commercial Segment Accounted for the Highest Market Share in 2019

Currently, the commercial segment has the highest market share in the aircraft auxiliary power unit market. Although the sales of general aviation aircraft are higher, the cost of each commercial aircraft APU is more compared to the general aviation aircraft. Two commercial aerospace giants, Airbus and Boeing, recorded a total of more than 1,600 aircraft deliveries in 2018. Thus, the high number of orders for commercial aircraft is helping the market for commercial aircraft APUs. However, a higher growth rate is projected to occur in the general aviation segment. General aviation aircraft shipments are projected to increase their pace in the years to come. Almost 2,443 general aviation fixed-wing aircraft shipments were done globally in 2018, which was a 5% increase when compared to that of 2017. These are positive signs for the tier-1 suppliers of the aircraft OEMs, like the suppliers of the APUs for the general aviation segment.

Aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific to Experience the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

Due to a large demand for new aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region, the market for APUs in the region is projected to grow at a healthy pace during the forecast period. The region has the highest growth rate in the aviation market. Countries, like China, India, Japan, Australia, and Indonesia, are among the largest aviation markets in the world. Thus, a large number of aircraft are about to be procured by the airlines to cater to the demand arising from the growing passengers in the region. All these factors are expected to generate demand for APUs for aircraft in the coming years in the region.

Competitive Landscape

Honeywell International Inc., Aerosila, United Technologies Corporation, Technodinamika, and Safran SA are the major players in the market currently. The market is highly fragmented, with these players grabbing almost the entire market share. In February 2019, Boeing and the engine manufacturer Safran announced their 50:50 joint venture, Initium Aerospace, with an aim to provide state-of-the-art APUs and innovative solutions to customers. Through this venture, the aircraft OEM, Boeing is making a point that it is making strategic investments that strengthen its vertical capabilities and continue to expand its service portfolio. Players in the industry may embrace new technologies, like electric APUs, and work in this regard, so that they may get ready to cater to the next-generation aircraft, like the ones with more electric architecture.
