The ice protection systems are developed to restrict the formation of ice on the aircraft or helicopter surface, particularly on the wings leading and trailing edges, rotor blades, propellers, engine intakes, vertical stabilizer and flight control surfaces. The systems for ice protection on aircraft or helicopter protects ice formation or it helps the aircraft or the helicopter to shed the formed ice.
The market for ice protection systems is majorly driven by the increasing air traffic, growing airports. It has been noted that recently, the number of commercial and defense aircrafts or helicopters across the globe has increased rapidly. The rapid increase in aircrafts or helicopters globally has impacted the ice protection systems market to a greater extent as the aircrafts in the extreme cold regions requires to be needs to be heavily ice protected. The growing number of airports also has a positive impact on the market for ice protection systems as most of the new airports are equipped with the ice protection systems, and the older airports are also incorporating the ice protection technologies in order to prevent formation of ice on the aircraft surface.
The ice protection systems market is limited by the factors such as seasonal demand for ice protection systems and high cost of maintenance of the systems. The demand ice protection systems is high during the winters which has a negative impact on the systems during other season of the year. During the non-winter seasons, the ice protection systems remains idle and it requires huge maintenance so as to work properly during the winters. These systems requires huge investments in order to maintain every parts of the equipment, and due to this the airports in the developing countries are unable to adopt the ice protection systems.
The major factors expected to grow the market for ice protection systems in future, is developing cost enduring aircraft deicing systems. The cost effective deicing systems will help the airport authorities and commercial airlines as well as defense authorities to adopt the latest ice protection systems in order to protect the aircrafts from icing. Another major factor anticipated to boost the market for ice protection systems is the rotor craft deicer that detects ice formation automatically and removes the ice from the helicopter blades.
The ice protection systems market is segmented on basis of types of systems, application, technology, platform, and geography. Based on types of systems, the ice protection systems is bifurcated as anti-icing systems and deicing systems. The deicing systems is heavily used in all the major airports across the globe. The ice protection systems in the aviation industry has various applications such as wind shield, wings, engine inlets, propellers, vertical stabilizers, sensors, airframe and others. On basis of technology, the market for ice protection systems is segmented as electrical, chemical, pneumatic bots and bleed air technology. Bleed air technology dominates the market for ice protection system in terms of technology followed by pneumatic bots. Commercial aircrafts, military aircrafts and helicopters are the key platforms for the ice protection systems market. Geographically, the market for ice protection systems is categorized as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. The largest market for ice protection systems was held by North America due to the extreme temperature conditions during winter season, followed by Europe. Europe is expected to be the fastest growing region owing to the fact that the number of airlines is growing in recent times.
