Increase in fuel efficiency by use of artificial intelligence (AI)

Aircraft consumes billions of gallons of fuel every year. According to IATA Factsheet published in December 2019, commercial airlines consumed around 98 billion of fuel worldwide. Although fuel-consumption witnessed a drastic decline in 2020, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic as there was decline in air traffic. Moreover, to overcome expenses due to rise in fuel consumption, various organizations are already making lightweight components with assistance of 3D printing technology. Artificial intelligence (AI) can also help aerospace firms improve fuel efficiency of aircraft.

Airplane consumes fuel at maximum rate during the climb phase. AI designs can help analyze fuel consumption data by studying climb phase of several airplanes and operations of aircraft by various pilots to develop climb phase profiles for each aircraft model and pilot. These profiles can help improve fuel consumption. By using AI-produced profiles, pilots can efficiently consume fuel during several stages of flight. In addition, to benefit from fuel-saving prospects of AI, several airlines are making use of AI models to save fuel expenses. For instance, in 2019, Air France announced its plans to make use of AI to cut fuel use and emissions. The company uses Sky Breathe technology (based on big data, AI, and machine learning) in partnership with Open Airlines with the objective to reduce total fuel consumption by up to 5%. Increase in use of AI technologies to make aircraft more fuel-efficient is expected to drive growth of the global aerospace artificial intelligence market during the forecast period.

Software is projected as the most lucrative segments

Rise in use of AI to ensure safety at airports

In the last decades, airport authorities across the globe have ramped up their security considerably in response to growing threats at airports. Artificial intelligence-generated systems help tackle safety concerns for airport authorities. In February 2018, the government of the UK invested around $2 million for development of new AI systems to enhance safety and lessen wait times across the nation’s busiest airports. Moreover, to tighten security, in 2018, the U.S. transportation security administration introduced new computed tomography scanners at John F. Kennedy, Los Angeles International Airport, and Phoenix airports, which make use of AI in finding threats. In addition to ensuring security at airport checkpoints, AI can also be used to scale up security at landside zones of airports. Various airports are installing cutting-edge solutions to strengthen safety. For instance, in July 2019, one of the California’s busiest airports, Oakland international airport, selected Evolv Edge physical threat detection. This system makes use of combination of facial recognition, millimeter-wave technologies, and camera to inspect individuals walking through a moveable security gate. It scans about 900 people in an hour, making it significantly faster as compared to regular X-ray scanners. 

Machine learning models can be deployed to automatically analyze data for several threats. For instance, they can help detect firearms and explosives, while ignoring other items such as keys and belt buckles, which are usually carried by passengers. Hence, rise in usage of AI for improving security at airports is expected to propel growth of the global aerospace artificial intelligence market during the forecast period.

Machine Learning is projected as the most lucrative segments

Stringent airline regulations and high cost of adoption of AI in aerospace

AI holds great prospects for the future of the aviation industry by assisting in efficient product design, air traffic management, pilot training, enhanced customer service, and in offering operational efficiency and maintenance. While it can be quite profitable to deploy AI models in the aerospace sector, there are some pitfalls as well. The aerospace sector is governed by strict regulations and standards, hence safety of airports, product design of aircraft, ground operations, and other parameters have to be in accordance with strict global regulations. Therefore, adopt AI in aerospace, organizations have to develop systems that go hand-in-hand with all the global standards. This leads to increase in time for implementation of AI by the global aerospace industry. 

Another aspect that is expected to result in low adoption of AI models in aerospace is the high cost involved with AI systems. For instance, to deploy a chatbot to handle customer requests, an airline has to invest thousands of dollars. Hence, it would be highly unfeasible for small airline companies to invest in the same, which acts as a barrier for the adoption of AI tools for airlines. Such factors are anticipated to obstruct growth of the global aerospace artificial intelligence market during the forecast period.

Flight Operations is projected as the most lucrative segments

Use of AI to ensure operational efficiency and maintenance of airplanes

Aircraft have numerous sensors that assist pilots in measuring air pressure, altitude, and speed. To make better use of parameters (temperature, moisture, and pressure in different parts of an aircraft) calculated by sensors, AI models can really be helpful in identifying anomalous behavior in aircraft components. For instance, sensors fitted in turbines can gather useful data such as temperature, air pressure, and rotation speed. This data can be employed to instruct AI models regarding standard turbine performance. By examining this data, AI models can identify when turbines perform in their standard manner, which can alert concerned staff about probable faults. In this way, application of AI in aerospace can help airlines enhance their operational efficiency by preventing component failures that can cause interruptions in flight operations. 

In recent years, several airlines have adopted AI to improve their operational efficiencies. For instance, in March 2018, easyJet signed a 5-year contract with Airbus S.A.S. to provide predictive maintenance services by using Skywise digital aviation data platform for its fleet of 300 aircraft. easyJet aims to reduce delays and cancellations caused by technical problems in aircraft. Several other airlines, such as Southwest Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United Airlines, are making wide use of AI to manage various operations such as bag-scanning, air traffic control, and customer services. Rise in adoption of AI to ensure operational efficiency and maintenance of airplanes is expected to propel growth of the global aerospace artificial intelligence market during the forecast period.
