Refueler Tank Market: Overview

Refueler tanks are employed to refuel airplanes and other aviation vehicles. These tanks can be built for overwing and underwing fueling options. They are made of aluminum or stainless steel. Rapid fleet expansion is a major factor driving the global refueler tank market. As of 2017, there were more than 24,000 active, commercial, wide-body and narrow-body aircraft across the globe. The existing commercial aircraft fleets are expected to be replaced by more than 40,000 new aircraft in the next 20 years. Expansion of the existing commercial aircraft fleets along with the launch of new airlines would augment the demand for refueler tanks in the near future. Moreover, global air travel is made easily available by low-cost carriers, whilst airlines are expanding their services in various locations. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), around 3.97 billion passengers flew on scheduled flights across the world in 2017. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), this passenger number showed an increase of 8.8% over that in the previous year, as measured in revenue passenger kilometers (RPKs). Furthermore, growing terror threats have prompted several countries to increase their overall defense spending and procure advanced fighter jets to gain an advantage during aerial warfare. This drives the global refueler tank market.

The global refueler tank market can be segmented based on material, capacity, application, and region. In terms of material, the market can be divided into aluminum and stainless steel.

Based on application, the refueler tank market can be classified into up to 2000 gallons, 2000–7000 gallons, and above 7000 gallons.

Based on application, the refueler tank market can be classified into commercial aircraft, military aircraft, and others. The commercial aircraft segment dominates the market. The segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Increase in the number of air passengers, rise in tourism, and economic growth are driving the demand for commercial aircrafts. This, in turn, is boosting the global refueler tank market.
