Global Aircraft De-Icing Market to Grow at 4.5% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Implementation of Favorable Regulations

October 12, 2020 | Aerospace and Defense

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Aircraft De-Icing Market Report by Fluid Type (Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IV), Application (Military, Commercial), Equipment (De-Icing Trucks, Sweepers, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global aircraft de-icing market reached a value of US$ 1.3 Billion in 2023. Aircraft de-icing is the process of removing ice, snow and frost from the surface of an aircraft. Since frozen contaminants interfere with the aircraft’s aerodynamic properties and dislodged ice may even damage the engines, de-icing measures are widely taken across the military and commercial aviation sector when met with freezing conditions and heavy precipitation on the ground. Various de-icing agents are used for this that are prepared using ethylene glycol and propylene glycol-based fluids to protect the metal surface. Numerous additives, such as dyes, water, corrosion inhibitors, wetting agents and thickeners, are also added to the fluids. These components are crucial for reducing the freezing point of water and decontaminating the aircraft body prior to take-off.

Global Aircraft De-Icing Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the considerable growth in the aviation sector across the globe. This is further supported by the rising air passenger traffic and the subsequent construction of new aircraft. Significant expansion of airports and modernization of the infrastructure across developed and developing economies can also be attributed to the industry growth. The market players are, therefore, increasingly focusing on improving and securing take-off and landing operations in an attempt to provide enhanced convenience to the passengers. As a result, aircraft de-icing solutions are widely being utilized to enhance the overall operation of the vehicle. The market is further driven by the implementation of stringent government regulations regarding the operation of air vehicles in winters and frost conditions. The airline operators are expected to comply with these regulations that emphasize on the restrictions imposed on take-offs with ice or snow accumulated on critical surfaces of an aircraft to minimize the risks of accidents. Several governments are also offering training programs to the operators that educate them about the effective operation of air vehicles during adverse weather conditions. This is expected to create a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, various advanced technologies, including weeping wing, ultrasound and alloys de-icing technologies, are now increasingly being integrated with de-icing solutions, which is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. The advent of novel infrared, hot water, tempered steam, forced air, electro-expulsive separation and electro-mechanical expulsion de-icing systems is also expected to provide an impetus to the market growth. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the launch of recyclable and environment-friendly de-icing agents. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 4.5% during 2024-2032.
