Hydrogen aircraft refers to an aircraft that uses liquid or gaseous hydrogen as a power source. It is harnessed by burning hydrogen gas in jet or internal combustion (IC) engines or by powering fuel cells that generate electricity to power the propeller of the aircraft. These aircraft are widely used for commercial and cargo transportation applications for short, medium and long hauls. In comparison to the traditionally used aircraft that utilize kerosene, hydrogen aircraft are environment-friendly and cause zero emissions of carbon dioxide, nitric oxide and nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxides and soot. In addition, they are also characterized by exceptional gravimetric and volumetric energy density.
Hydrogen Aircraft Market Trends:
Significant growth in the aviation industry across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the rising environmental consciousness among the masses is providing a thrust to the market growth. Hydrogen aircraft are being widely used as an effective alternative to jet-fuel aircraft as they offer various benefits, such as convenient availability of the fuel source, minimal pollution and weight and enhanced safety of the passengers and cargo. Government and private organizations are also increasingly acquiring hydrogen aircraft to meet the air transport requirements. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the launch of hydrogen fuel cell-based unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), air taxis and business jets, are also contributing to the growth of the market. UAVs and drones are widely used for conducting surveillance operations and military activities with enhanced efficiency. Other factors, including the implementation of favorable government policies, along with the increasing air traffic, especially in the developing economies, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
