    Market Insights

    In the aircraft industry, batteries are used mainly for power backup and emergency systems, starting the engine and auxiliary power units, and flight preparation. They play a very crucial role as they supply power to the aircraft in the case of power failure. Batteries in the aircraft must be reliable, durable, lower in maintenance, low weight, lower in the cost of ownership, and have an extended life. The industry is witnessing a gradual transition from lead-acid batteries to nickel-cadmium batteries to lithium-ion batteries.

    With unending orders and booming demand, the aerospace industry exhibited an uphill trajectory up until 2019. The market underwent a minimal impact of B737MAX grounding, only the North American demand suffered a minor downturn in 2019. However, this flourishing industry could not escape from the ravaging pandemic in 2020. What initially seemed like a viable hitch, lately has metamorphosed into an obstruction for survival for many stakeholders across industries.

    The aircraft battery market is expected to mirror the industry’s fitful path, marking a grave decline (+25%)  in 2020. The short-term impact on the market is apparent including but not limited to employee layoffs, cash-burnouts of several players including the big guns, production halts, and reductions, etc. However, unceasing demand from the relatively unstirred defense industry offered a supporting hand to the batteries’ falling demand in 2020.

    The long-term outlook still seems hopeful with a gradual rebound in aircraft production, ultimately imprinting a positive impact on the market. Stratview Research’s estimates suggest that the market is likely to pick up the pace from 2021 onwards to reach an estimated value of US$ 210 million in 2026.

    In recent years, the overall market has witnessed a shift towards a more electric architecture including the different electrical systems present in an aircraft. More and more aircraft systems are now electrically connected, which increases the market opportunity for the battery manufacturers. Also, the increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles for commercial, civil, and military applications accelerates the market growth of aircraft batteries, as they primary bank on batteries with long lives.

    Segments' Analysis

    Aircraft Battery Market Share by Battery Type

    Based on the battery type, the aircraft battery market is classified as nickel-cadmium battery, lithium-ion battery, and lead-acid battery. Among the different types of batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries are the most preferred ones in 2020 and are also expected to maintain their dominance in the market during the forecast period as well. Concurrently, lithium-ion batteries are likely to witness the highest growth during 2021-2026 in the wake of their preference for the latest aircraft programs.

    Aircraft Battery Market Share by Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, the market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, military aircraft, and UAV.  Among aircraft types, commercial aircraft held the lion’s share in 2020 and is also estimated to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period as well. Despite several shockwaves (B737Max grounding, B787 deliveries halt, and COVID-19), B737Max, A320neo family, A350XWB, and B787 are likely to remain the major aircraft programs generating a substantial demand for batteries. The market entry of C919 and MC-21 are likely to add additional growth momentum in the years to come. 

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, North America held the largest market share for aircraft electrical batteries in 2020. This region houses a number of key market players such as Securaplane Technologies, Inc., Concorde Battery, and EnerSys. The region’s aerospace industry is currently under immense pressure in the wake of several challenges starting from B737max grounding paired with the COVID-19 outbreak. However, it is anticipated that the region’s market will mark an excellent recovery in the near future, helping the region to maintain its legacy in the global market in the foreseen future.

    Asia-Pacific, a sizeable market, is likely to offer the highest growth opportunities to the market participants in the coming five years, driven by a multitude of factors including greater production of commercial aircraft, higher involvement of Asian companies in the aircraft part manufacturing, and higher inclination of Asian countries to become self-sufficient in the aerospace industry.
