Commercial Aircraft Engines Market Analysis

The commercial aircraft engine market is anticipated to grow from USD 48,680.04 million in 2022 to USD 100,863.52 million in 2028, registering a CAGR of 13.02% during the forecast period.

The commercial aircraft engines market witnessed unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The demand for commercial and commercial aircraft engines had slumped due to low economic growth, a decrease in air traffic passengers, and a decline in aviation operations. Moreover, there had been a decrease in the growth rate of wide-body aircraft and narrow-body aircraft orders, owing to the grounding of 737 Max aircraft. The reduced number of aircraft purchasing orders by various airline companies around the world led to a decline in the production of more aircraft by OEMs and also hampered the production of commercial aircraft engines to a long extent. On the other hand, this effect, however, is expected to be short-lived, due to the increasing investments in the aviation industry of emerging economies and the emergence of new technologies, norms, and regulations for safety, etc.

The rise in global air passenger traffic is leading to a growth in the demand for new commercial aircraft, driving the growth of the commercial aircraft engine market. The development of new medium- and small-sized airports in cities and regions across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, is propelling the demand for new aircraft to serve the new routes, thereby driving related growth of the aircraft engines market.

Technological innovations are significantly fueling market growth. The development of new models results in weight reduction, fewer noise footprints, fewer emissions, high thrust, reduction in maintenance operations, etc. Hybrid propulsion commercial aircraft engines are boosted by the development of battery technology in areas such as weight reduction, less space requirement, and high power.

Commercial Aircraft Engines Market Trends

By Aircraft Type, the Wide-Body Aircraft Segment is Anticipated to Grow with the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

The wide-body aircraft segment is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. A wide-body aircraft, called twin-aisle aircraft, is an airliner with a fuselage wide enough to accommodate two passenger aisles with seven or more seats abreast. The typical fuselage diameter is 5 to 6 m (16 to 20 ft). Boeing B777X and Airbus A350 are examples of wide-body aircraft in service across various world geographies. As of June 2021, an estimated total of 124 Boeing B777Xs and 436 units of A350 were in service.

Airlines use wide-body aircraft to ferry goods; high demand is expected to continue until 2023. Manufacturers are developing advanced engines to meet demand. For instance, in February 2023, Air India, a part of Tata Sons, signed a procurement contract for 40 GEnx-1B and 20 GE9X engines and a multi-year TrueChoice engine services agreement with GE Aerospace. The deal was signed in coordination with the airline's firm order for 10 Boeing B777X and 20 Boeing B787 aircraft.

In November 2021, General Electric successfully validated the durability of its new GE9X - the world's largest and most powerful commercial jet engine, with the dust-ingestion test. A partnership between the airlines and aircraft manufacturers can be seen in the industry, owing to the long-range requirements put forth by airlines to serve long routes continuously. This leads to aircraft engine procurement partnerships with airlines in the industry. The focus is on wide-body aircraft that are ideal for intercontinental travel. In May 2022, the Australian carrier Qantas announced its commitment to a deal for 12 Rolls Royce Trent XWB-97 powered A350-1000 aircraft that will support the airline's aim to operate the world's longest commercial non-stop flights, allowing passengers to fly direct between London and New York to the Australian east coast cities of Sydney and Melbourne.

With multiple partnerships and innovations by aircraft engine manufacturers for wide-body aircraft, this segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific Will Showcase Remarkable Growth During the Forecast Period

Asia Pacific is projected to show the highest growth during the forecast period. Fleet Expansion plans of airlines and increasing cargo services are accelerating the procurement of new passenger and cargo aircraft, which will possess a positive stance on the aircraft engine market during the forecast period.

The commercial aircraft produced in China, including the latest C919, is equipped with foreign engines currently. However, the country has been trying to develop a home-grown alternative as it seeks to cut its dependence on foreign sources of sophisticated technology. China is progressing with the development of CJ1000, a turbofan jet engine designed to power the homemade C919 narrow-body aircraft in the next three to five years.

Civil aviation in India is the third-largest aviation market in the world. According to a report by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), in the financial year 2022, India's total air passenger traffic reached more than 105 million passengers. It was a huge increase of 69.7% compared to the previous year. According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), India is expected to overtake China and the United States as the world's third-largest air passenger market in the next ten years by 2030.

India is one of the fastest-growing aviation markets in the world and has significant potential for growth in the coming years. Also, an increase in the budget allocation for improving airport infrastructure and the establishment of new airports will support the growth of the aviation sector over the next decade. In January 2021, All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced it would be cutting its domestic wide-body operations in half as it moves ahead with the early exit of some of its Boeing 777s from the fleet. The airline unveiled plans for a subsidiary airline called AirJapan to fly medium-haul international routes from the second half of 2023. From October 2021, ANA (All Nippon Airways) slowly started to increase international flights to help meet rising travel demand from Asia, Europe, and North America.

Such fleet modernization plans of the airlines and aircraft operators are expected to drive the growth of the commercial segment of the aircraft engines market during the forecast period.
