The global aviation high-speed motor market size is projected to reach USD 3.74 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.62% during the forecast period. Fortune Business Insights™ shares this information in its new report, titled “Aviation High Speed Motor Market Size, Share & COVID-19 impact Analysis, By Type (AC Motor and DC Motor), By Platform (Commercial Aircraft, General Aviation Aircraft, Business Aircraft, Electric Aircraft, UAV, Helicopter), By Application (Propulsion System, Flight Control, Fuel Management System) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028”. As per the report, the estimated value of this market was USD 2.33 billion in 2020.


Development of Electrically Powered Airplanes to Create Huge Opportunities

With concerns over emissions released from planes mounting around the globe, several aviation companies have been actively engaged in the development of electric planes to enhance sustainability in the industry. For example, Airbus has been developing its ZEROe concept aircraft, which will be the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft when it is released in 2035. The airline series will be powered by hydrogen and the only emissions will be water vapor. Airbus has also been collaborating with Rolls-Royce to co-develop E-FanX, their hybrid aircraft that will be driven by a 2-megawatt electric motor. Aviation high speed motor systems are set to play a central role in providing the necessary propulsion power to these electric-based airplanes due to their reliability and ability to work in conjunction with electrical units.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has proven calamitous for the aviation industry and has, by extension, hampered the aviation high speed motor market growth as well. One of the major reasons for this is the sharp decline in air passenger traffic, triggered by lockdowns, social distancing, travel bans, and economic downturn. For example, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) estimates that there was approximately a 60% reduction in air travelers in 2020, with airlines facing revenue losses in the vicinity of USD 371 billion. As a result, advancements in aircraft engine technologies have suddenly gotten disrupted, which will impact this market’s growth prospects.

Key Driving Factor

Introduction of eVTOL Air Taxis by Aerospace Giants to Boost the Market

The demand for sustainable mobility in urban areas has risen dramatically over the past few years and aviation high speed motors can prove instrumental in meeting this demand. In a bid to meet this growing trend, aerospace bigwigs, especially Airbus, have been channeling their expertise and resources towards the development and introduction of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. For example, Airbus came out with its autonomous eVTOL air taxi called Vahana, which can cover a distance of 31 miles. It completed its full test portfolio in 2019. Similarly, in January 2021, General Motors unveiled a concept electric air taxi at its virtual CES Expo, to be launched under its flagship Cadillac brand and powered by batteries. The burgeoning air taxi business and the integration of eVTOL technology with it have opened a new gateway of innovation in this market.
