Advances in technology in creating efficient business models, adoption by new market verticals to utilize drones and electric airplanes, and pressing need for more sustainable urban air mobility are considered to be the key drivers of the global electric aircraft market.
Electric aircraft need absolutely no internal combustion engine or jet propulsion system. Instead, they get their energy from electricity stored in batteries on board, then provided to the electric motor and rotors. With hybrid aircraft, batteries provide support with additional energy.
Aviation accounts for over 12% of total transportation emissions, growing at the fastest rate on the way to doubling by 2050. Further, the air travel experience is progressively deteriorating due to more flight congestion, long waiting hours, longer last-mile travel to the final destination, and a higher risk of transmission of airborne disease. Due to these issues, the various governing bodies in the aviation sector are stressing to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable aviation.
Start-ups dominate the electric aviation market in the current scenario. Some start-ups have completed numerous test flights and are expecting to launch their electric airplanes in 2024. For instance, Lilium GmbH, a German aerospace company, successfully flew the prototype of what will eventually be a five-seater, vertical take-off aircraft they're calling an "air taxi." The commercial operations are projected to begin in 2024 and operate in different regions by 2025.
The emergence of More Electric Aircraft market (MEA) and the tremendous technological advancements in the MEA sector is aiding the transition to all electric air travel and assuring a future of all electric flight.
The electric UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) already have a good presence in the global market. Commercial drones are dominating the electric aircraft market and is expected to grow further. The growing application areas of drones are simultaneously propelling the demand for these electric UAVs. Some application areas are
The batteries are often too heavy, which is an essential criterion for aircraft manufacturers: every kilogram less means more fuel efficiency. Another challenge for electric aircraft is the low power density of the batteries: they can store only three percent of the energy that is in one kilogram of jet fuel. Electrification of aviation does not mean manufacturing of electric aircraft alone, but also the development of charging infrastructure to cater to the need of electric aircraft; hence significant charging technology has to be deployed for smooth functioning of the electric aircraft fleet.
The growing prominence of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) performance and rise in e-commerce are forcing the logistics sector stakeholders to invest in electric modes of transportation to reduce their carbon footprint. Electric cargo aircraft and drones can be used in the short-haul cargo segment to reduce carbon emissions and operation costs.
For instance, Ehang cooperated with DHL-Sinotrans to jointly launch the fully automated smart drone delivery solution. Also, partnership with Yonghui (supermarket chain) to build world's first flagship store for "areal grocery services and smart retailing."
