Aviation Gas Turbine Market: Introduction

  • Aviation gas turbine refers to a gas turbine that works on the principle of the Brayton cycle
  • The first generation gas turbine engines were turbojets, which sucked air from the front, and exhausted it at a high speed from the rear end. This provided a forward thrust to the aircraft.
  • Turbofan is another gas turbine engine, where some amount of air is exhausted without going through the core, thus producing additional thrust. These are also called ‘bypass jets’ and are more efficient than turbojets.
  • Aviation gas turbines are used in civil and military applications

Key Drivers of Aviation Gas Turbine Market

  • Rise in global trade and increase in per capita disposable income have led to growth in air travel across the globe. Demand for aircraft has been increasing due to the rise in preference for air travel. There were more than 24,000 active aircraft across the globe in 2017.
  • According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), around 3.97 billion passengers flew on scheduled flights around the world in 2017. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of passengers indicated growth of 8.8% in 2017 compared to that in 2016, as measured by revenue passenger kilometers (RPKs). These factors are driving the demand for aviation gas turbines.
  • Several companies are conducting research and development activities in order to provide highly advanced aviation gas turbines. This is also projected to propel the aviation gas turbine market.
  • Increase in military budgets of several countries across the globe in order to advance their air forces is fuelling the growth of the aviation industry. This, in turn, is projected to augment the global aviation gas turbine market.
