    What are Aircraft Electrical Distribution Systems?

    The electrical distribution system of an aircraft connects the aircraft generators to the individual devices and systems powered by electrical energy during both flight and aircraft-on-ground operations. The electrical distribution system market is divided into primary and secondary power distribution systems. Each of these fulfills different functions within the electrical system. Another important function of the electrical distribution system is the protection of the aircraft wiring from electrical overloads and the monitoring of any power surge incident in the distribution circuit. This is achieved by utilizing circuit protection devices.

    COVID-19 Impact

    The aviation industry proved to be one of the biggest victims of the pandemic. However, the impact of the pandemic varied from aircraft to aircraft. For instance; commercial aircraft recorded an irreparable loss in the year 2020, whereas, military aircraft registered a relatively less decline. The tremor of this had been felt across the industry verticals including electrical distribution systems, declined over 20% in the year 2020.

    Segment Analysis

    By Product Type

    The market is segmented as solid-state power controllers (SSPC), relays, contactors, circuit breakers, and others. Among these product types, SSPC is expected to remain the most dominant product type in the market and it held a revenue share of more than 40% in 2020.

    SSPCs are the major components used for circuit protection. SSPC generally includes the combination of a circuit breaker and a relay and is very crucial in electrically controlling and isolating a circuit in case of flow of excessive electric current or power-surge incidents.

    By Aircraft Type

    The market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, military aircraft, and UAV. Among these aircraft types, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing aircraft type in the market, and it held a revenue share of more than 55% in 2020. Commercial aircraft alone generates more than half of the electrical distribution systems used in the aircraft industry.

    The aircraft type is currently going through one of its hardest times with multiple setbacks. However, the industry stakeholders are accustomed to such breath-taking market conditions and have learned the art to sail through from the crisis.

    By System Type

    The market is segmented as primary power distribution system and secondary power distribution system. Among these system types, the primary power distribution system is expected to remain the most dominant system type in the market and it held a revenue share of more than 70% in 2020.

    By Fit Type

    The market is segmented as original equipment and aftermarket. Among these fit types, the original equipment is expected to remain the most dominant fit type in the market and it held a revenue share of more than 70% in 2020.

    Regional Analysis

    North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft electrical distribution systems during the forecast period. The USA remains the growth propellor of the region’s market in the years to come. The country is the preferred destination for aircraft assembly with the presence of almost all the leading OEMs and tier players. Asia-Pacific, the largest procurer of commercial aircraft, is also likely to create sizeable market opportunities in the coming years, driven by an expected rise in air passenger traffic coupled with a high focus of China, Japan, and India for the manufacturing of aircraft programs indigenously.
