The global electric aircraft market demand is expected to witness a healthy boost over the forecast period, as aviation companies have been plagued by the soaring prices of conventional fuel, forcing them to look towards other options, of which electrical energy is an efficient and eco-friendly alternative. Electric aircraft aid in reducing air, noise & ground pollution. This results in the diminishing hazards of global warming, which is expected to drive the global market demand.
Electric aircraft are highly innovative with respect to technology and functioning. For example, helicopters can exercise safety control, while landing despite any engineering failures with the help of electric backup. This serves as a key driving force to the market. Electric aircraft paves new pathways for applications of many new electrical components and systems, including structural components, printed electronics, and smart skin, which is further anticipated to boost the market. The global electric aircraft market growth is propelled by increasing usage of autonomous systems. The need to achieve optimized aircraft performance, reduced gas emissions and airport noise, decreased operational & maintenance costs and the tremendous increase in aircraft deliveries have been a few other key factors spurring the market demand. Soaring need for fuel-efficient and greener aircraft is expected to be a cardinal driving factor that compels aircraft manufacturers to opt for more fuel-efficient alternatives.
Increasing number of airline passengers has driven the aircraft orders extensively. The market is expected to gain prominence over the next few years owing to several benefits such as increased safety, improved maneuverability, less risk of explosion or fire, and less noise. Further, electric aircraft eliminates usage of fossil fuel consumption and its resultant emissions, which in turn contributes to environmental and cost benefits. Thus, the electric aircraft market is anticipated to witness healthy growth in the near future owing to the aforementioned benefits. Several regulatory issues and other macro-economic factors are anticipated to hinder the market growth. Key challenges faced by the industry participants include reliability of electrical systems in harsh environment, thermal management, and optimization in electrical systems.
The aircraft market is classified as large body, narrow body, and wide body aircraft. The aircraft can work on commercial, UAV, and military platforms by application of various technologies. These technologies comprise power electronics, thermal management, advanced materials, and safety systems. In North America and Europe, the electric aircraft market is expected to witness significant growth despite the economic downturn. This may be attributed to the technological advancements and strong R&D initiatives by the key players in these regional markets. Further, to meet the changing demands of the stakeholders in the aircraft market, Asia Pacific is expected to restore its technology platform in the near future. Asia Pacific is also projected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to military Keynesianism.
The key players in the global market are Boeing, Safran, Airbus, Raytheon, and Honeywell International Inc. These key players aim at continuous improvement with lean approach as a major part of their strategy, ultimately boosting productivity.

In order to ensure business continuity amidst the COVID-19 crisis, business organizations, especially in highly affected countries are allowing their employees to work from home. The increase in people working from home has led to a surge in demand for online video viewing, downloading, and communication through video conferencing, all of which are leading to increased network traffic and data usage. COVID-19 shall accelerate the demand for agile and flexible work styles and further push the adoption of communication services that tend to improve work-life balance. On the flip side, telecom regulators worldwide have postponed their plans of 5G spectrum auction amidst the global pandemic. This is expected to have an impact on the commercialization of commercial 5G standalone deployments and revenue generated through 5G services. The ongoing pandemic has forced telecom operators worldwide to test their network resiliency and revisit their planned investments, especially in 5G technology. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
