Global Piston Engine Aircraft Market to Reach US$ 1.12 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Fuel-Efficient Aircraft

Published on Mar 21, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Piston Engine Aircraft Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global piston engine aircraft market reached a value of US$ 0.865 Billion in 2021. Piston engine aircraft is generally equipped with one or more piston-powered engines for converting high pressure and temperature into rotational motion. The key components of a piston engine include cylinders, crankcase, pistons, valve-operating equipment, connecting rods and crankshafts that aid in generating power that provides thrust to the aircraft. Its design is similar to the interior of a small car and is widely used for carrying one to six passengers for short missions. It runs on aviation gasoline that offers higher power output, compression ratio and efficiency at higher altitudes. There has been a considerable rise in the adoption of piston engine aircraft due to the growing passenger traffic across developing countries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Piston Engine Aircraft Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the aviation industry. Along with this, leading players in the market are heavily investing in the deployment of advanced features, such as side yokes, a cirrus airframe parachute system (CAPS) and composite airframe for enhancing the safety of pilots, which are gaining widespread prominence across the globe. Moreover, the rising product demand for training purposes across the defense sector is also acting as one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In line with this, the escalating preference for fuel-efficient aircraft with high compression ratios and the widespread adoption of piston engine aircraft in agricultural applications, including aerial application of fertilizers or pesticides, are providing a boost to the market growth. Other factors, including continuous innovations in piston aircraft, increasing investments for upgrading the defense infrastructure and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are further contributing to the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors,the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1.12 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% during 2022-2027.
