Airships Market (Construction Type - Rigid, Semi Rigid, and Non-rigid; Application - Surveillance, Research, Commercial Tours, Advertisement, and Cargo Transport) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Airships navigate through the air with their own power and are lifted into the air with hydrogen and helium. The various types of airships are predominantly being used for surveillance purposes as the safety has become a growing concern in the recent times. The low maintenance cost of airships and their ability to offer surveillance to large areas are acting as key growth drivers for the global airships market. According to the research report, the global airships market is projected to be worth US$273.2 mn by the end of 2024 as compared to US$152.8 mn in 2015. During the forecast period of 2016 and 2024, the global market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.5%.

Changing Perspectives toward Advertising Boost Performance of Global Market

Innovative approaches towards advertising and market are also influencing the global airships market to a large extent. Advertisers are opting for airships are they cover bigger areas, have improved visibility, and remain stationary. Thus, the cost-effectiveness of airships and their returns on investment in the field of advertising are making a significant impact on the overall market.  The tremendous capacity of these airships to handle weight has opened up the opportunity for these airships in the logistics sector. However, the global airships market faces a few challenges. The usage of hydrogen exposes these airships to the risk of inflammation, which can lead to fatal accidents. In view of these risks, researchers are working on developing hybrid airships that will partly operate on solar energy to mitigate the possibility of hazardous accidents.

Cost-effectiveness of Non-rigid Airships Spurs Adoption

On the basis of type, the global airships market is segmented into semi rigid airships, rigid airships, and non-rigid airships. Of these, the non-rigid airships are anticipated to lead the global market are they are priced low. Furthermore, several marketing agencies and companies are opting for non-rigid airships as they are exceptionally light in weight. Airships are being used for research, commercial tours, advertisements, cargo transport, and surveillance amongst others. Currently, the advertisement and surveillance segment is defining the success of the global market. The soaring demand of airships for advertisement will be attributable to the tremendous exposure airships can provide by raised in the middle of the sky. Furthermore, the rising demand for safety has triggered an urgent need for surveillance of large areas.

Strong Presence of Players Bodes Well for North America Airships Market

Geographically, the global airships market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. Of these North America is projected to dominate the global market as the U.S. will register maximum demand for airships. The dominance of this regional market will be due to the strong presence of manufacturers in the country and development of technologically advanced products that overcome challenges such as high inflammability of hydrogen gas. Analysts predict that non-rigid airships will show significant sale in the global market while the surveillance segment will witness a remarkable adoption of airships. Europe has also been observed as an emerging airships market as they are being adopted with the rise of the tourism industry.

Some of the leading players operating in the global airships market are Lockheed Martin Corporation, Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GMBH, Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd., Lindstrand Technologies Ltd., and Shanghai Vantage Airship Manufacture Co. Ltd. Analysts have observed that are several emerging players in the global market, which is anticipated to intensify the competition in the coming years.

Global Airships Market: Snapshot

Airships are lighter than air (LTA) airships. These aircrafts have the ability to navigate through air with the help of its own power. Airships, also known as aerostats gain their lift through large gas filled bags which are filled with lifting gases such as helium or hydrogen. The market for airships is expected to grow due to their rising demand for surveillance globally.

Global Airships Market: Drivers and Restraints

The growing concern for safety has lead to the increasing demand for surveillance. However, the requirement for monitoring of large areas is leading to the demand for economic methods of surveillance. Airships have lower maintenance cost and can monitor a large area by staying uplifted for long time periods. These factors are aiding to the demand for airships in surveillance applications. Furthermore, the airships are being used as a mode of advertisement as they have the ability to stay up in the air with little or no movement which helps the advertisements to cover a larger target area. Moreover, advertising on airships has been analyzed to be much more cost effective compared to other forms of advertising.

However, there are some issues related with the use of airships that can hinder the growth of the market. Currently, most of the airships operated with the help of lighter than air gases such as helium and hydrogen. However, hydrogen is a highly flammable gas which has led to several accidents earlier. Hence it becomes risky to operate an airship filled with hydrogen. Furthermore, the airships travel at a much slower speed compared to the modern day jets. Hence, the application of airships in commercial travel is being restrained due to slow speeds. Nevertheless, research is being conducted to develop hybrid airships which are supposed to run with the help of solar energy to avoid the operational hazards associated with lighter than air gases. The concept of hybrid airships is expected to push the demand for airships in future.

Global Airships Market: Segmentation

The global airships market has been segmented by construction type, application and geography. By construction type, the market has been categorized into rigid airships, semi rigid airships and non-rigid airships. Non-rigid airships are strong demand because of their lower cost. Additionally, these airships are preferred for advertisements due to their light weight design. In terms of application, the airships market has been segregated into surveillance, research, commercial tours, advertisements and cargo transport among others. The advertisement and surveillance segment has the maximum demand for airships. The demand in advertisement is attributed by the large exposure gained due to more area coverage of the advertisements displayed in the middle of the sky. Furthermore, the increasing demand for safety has created the need for surveillance of large areas. These factors are pushing the demand for airships in these segments.

Global Airships Market: Regional Outlook

By region, the airships market has been segmented into North America, Europe Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. North America and Europe is expected to dominate the airships market regionally. The dominance of this region is due to the presence of developed countries like the U.S., U.K. and Germany where maximum research and development and manufacturing facilities are present for airships.

To get a better understanding of the global airships market, the market dynamics have been provided which discusses the drivers, restraints and the opportunities present in the market.
