Aircraft Propeller System Market Analysis

The Aircraft Propeller Systems Market size is estimated at USD 378.27 million in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 519.81 million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 6.56% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The ongoing R&D of next-generation turboprop aircraft, the stable growth in the sales of the different types of aircraft, and the increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are expected to propel the growth of the aircraft propeller systems market. Increased focus on reducing vibration and interior noise acts as a driver for the market. Advancements in aircraft propeller systems technology also play a crucial role in enhancing aircraft performance, further propelling market growth. Moreover, growth in aircraft sales and production, especially from the commercial segment, is generating demand for exhaust systems for aircraft.

R&D on new propeller designs, such as a team in MIT Lincoln Lab's Structural and Thermal-Fluids Engineering Group working on new annular shape toroidal propellers, which are radically quieter (noise range 1-5 kHz) than traditional propellers. Similarly, Hartzell tested its new five-blade swept airfoiled carbon fiber propeller on a flight of a Hydrogen-Powered Airliner. It is part of a project with Universal Hydrogen where Hartzell Propeller is working and supporting advanced air mobility manufacturers. Such initiatives from various companies contribute to the growth of the market.

Aircraft OEMs and part manufacturers face several challenges involving additional costs that are incurred while complying with cumbersome certification processes. It poses a challenge for the mass-scale production of aircraft parts and components. Thus, the stringent certification process acts as a barrier to new entrants with the potential to enter the aircraft propeller systems market. The advent of innovative manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing and the increasing use of digital propeller vibration monitoring systems are anticipated to significantly impact the market prospects in the future.

Aircraft Propeller System Market Trends

The Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Segment to Dominate the Market

As the aviation industry continues to grow, the orders for new turboprop and piston engine aircraft may simultaneously generate demand for the parts of the aircraft, like propellers. The demand generated by the aircraft OEMs is now high, which increased the revenues from the OEM segment. For instance, in May 2022, the US Army, in its modernization plan for aviation platforms, selected Bell Textron's V-280 Valor Tiltrotor to replace the UH-60 Black Hawk. The army awarded a USD 1.3 billion contract to Bell Textron for a V-280 Valor Tiltrotor helicopter. As per the contract, the army will fund USD 232 million for Bell's preliminary design and development of a virtual prototype.

Similarly, in August 2023, Statkraft Ventures invested in Electra. Aero, Inc., a US-based firm, to develop its full-scale pre-production prototype electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft. Electra's eSTOL aircraft include eight electric propellers mounted under the fixed wings. As per the plan, the company is to test its prototype by 2025. Electra received 1,200 preorders for the eSTOL aircraft.

Asia-Pacific is Projected to become the Fastest Growing Market During the Forecast Period

Asia-Pacific is expected to show remarkable growth during the forecast period. China emerged as a global leader in terms of UAV development. The development of new UAVs in China is anticipated to generate a huge demand for propeller systems during the forecast period. The increasing demand for turboprop aircraft from commercial and military sectors is a major driver for the propeller systems market in India. 

Even in Japan, Australia, and other countries in the region, the procurement of turboprop aircraft is increasing, thereby contributing to the growth of the regional market. For instance, in March 2023, the Indian Ministry of Defence signed a contract with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the purchase of six Dornier-228 aircraft for the Indian Air Force (IAF). The six current aircraft will be modified with a more fuel-efficient engine and a composite propeller with five blades.

Similarly, in June 2023, the Indian Ministry of Defence approved the acquisition of 31 MQ-98 drones from General Dynamics at USD 3.5 billion. According to this agreement, the Indian Navy would receive 15 Sea Guardians, and the Indian Army and Indian Air Force would each receive 8 SkyGuardians. The SkyGuardian drone includes a wingspread of 24.07 m, carries a payload of 2,155 kg, and is capable of maritime surveillance, over-the-horizon targeting, anti-submarine warfare, airborne early warning, and electronic warfare.

Aircraft Propeller System Market News

  • February 2023: Hamilton Sundstrand Corp., a division of Collins Aerospace, was awarded a USD 135 million contract to manufacture the NP2000 eight-blade propeller and electronic propeller control system for the US Air Force's (USAF) C-130 Hercules aircraft. As per the terms of the contract, the mechanical control systems of the C-130H would be replaced by an updated version of propellers and control systems from Hamilton Sunstrand Corp. The replacement will enhance speed holding and blade synchronization while lowering vibration and interior noise in the cargo plane.
  • June 2022: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granted Hartzell Propeller a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), allowing it to swap out the Diamond DA40 NG MT wood/composite propellers with new, higher-performing, lightweight, three-bladed Polaris composite propellers. The three-blade, 74-inch-diameter ASCII carbon fiber prop for the Austro Engine E4-A includes a Bantam aluminum hub. It is a lightweight 2,400-hour TBO and a six-year TBO with Hartzell's warranty through the first overhaul.
