The global aircraft engines market was valued at $79.10 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $158.46 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Aircraft engine refers to the component of an aircraft that offers thrust to an aircraft during taxing or the course of flight. The major components of an aircraft engine encompass fan, compressor, combustor, turbine, mixer, and nozzle. Each component plays a crucial role in aircraft engine. The fan ensures required air intake for an aircraft engine, followed by compressor, which compresses the inlet air and rise the temperature & pressure. The jet fuel is introduced in the combustion chamber along with the compressed air. The reaction rotates the turbine that powers the aircraft. The reaction generated exhaust air which is then followed to mixer where excessive air from nozzle is introduced to reduce the pressure and temperature of exhaust air. The mixer ensures silent operation of an aircraft engine while maintaining optimal temperature. The nozzle finally releases the exhaust back to atmosphere.

Increase in aircraft deliveries and rise in inflight passengers across the globe

Rise in air traffic across the globe, fleet modernization program to include fuel efficient engines, and gradually increasing pace of engine deliveries by manufacturing companies to support business opportunism within the aircraft engine market. In comparison to 29 and 72 deliveries, respectively, in the same month the previous year, Boeing and Airbus delivered 41 and 63 commercial aircraft in March 2022. Boeing delivered 95 and Airbus delivered 142 aircraft as of 2022, respectively, as opposed to 77 deliveries by Boeing and 125 deliveries by Airbus in the first quarter of 2021. Boeing and Airbus were 18 and 17 deliveries, respectively, ahead of the totals for the first three months of last year.

The companies are optimizing their manufacturing processes and ramping up their production capacities. Boeing delivered 41 aircraft in March 2022, including three 767s, one 777F, and 37 737s (35 MAX/ 2 NG). The official production pace of the 737 programme is now 27 per month, up from 19 at the end of October 2021, and it is almost at the short-term goal of 31 per month. According to Reuters, Boeing intends to expand 737 productions to 38 aircraft per month in the first half of 2023, and then again to 47 aircraft per month by the end of 2023. Boeing has stated that it is expected to boost the 777/777X manufacturing pace from two to three per month in 2022. The 777X is anticipated to be added to the 777 programme in late 2023 with the first delivery. The 777X and cargo portfolio of Boeing was expanded in January 2022 with the debut of a new freighter built on the 777X platform. Launch client for the 777-8F is expected to be Qatar Airways.

Introduction of new fuel efficient engines and aircraft models

An airplane's fuel economy is measured by how far it can fly on a single gallon of fuel and by how little carbon dioxide it emits. The number of seats on airplanes is anticipated to increase by around 5% every year. By 2032, there should be roughly 40,000 aircraft in the world's fleet, an increase of 20,930 aircraft. Up to 2025, the fuel consumption for aviation is anticipated to grow by around 2.3% yearly. Aircraft manufacturers and airlines are collaborating closely to increase fuel economy by adopting innovative technologies, designs, and materials, upgrading engines, optimizing aerodynamics, and using lighter materials. This is expected to cut emissions and fuel consumption. Companies operation within the aircraft engine industry such as Pratt & Whitney and NASA among others are having notable investment in R&D to improve operational efficiency of an aircraft engine. The "double-bubble" D8 design experiment, which involves shifting the engines from beneath the wings to the top of the plane toward the tail, includes Pratt & Whitney. This would significantly increase fuel economy while reducing drag and noise.

Change in consumer dynamics

The rise in aviation traffic is attributed to a variety of factors. The primary reason is population and economic expansion, which is being fueled by the burgeoning middle class. By 2035, the global economy is projected to rise by 3% annually, while aviation traffic is projected to grow by an average of 6% annually. The second development element is introducing low-cost airlines with competitive rates on well-traveled routes. They play a significant role in the intensification of air traffic in Europe; at present, they account for more than 40% of Europe's and 25% of traffic globally. By encouraging international airlines to lower ticket rates, these businesses significantly influence airline prices.

Inefficient supply chain and increasing backlogs

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 in 2019, imposition of global trade and travel restriction in 2020 and 2021, followed by the Ukraine-Russia war in 2022 has posed a notable amount of challenges in business operations, majorly in cross border trade. Governments across the globe are limited their trade dependencies on European regions and aligning their inclination toward Asia-Pacific, African, and Middle East nation. The inter-European trade infrastructure is undergoing a major shift, casing notable business losses.

Aircraft Engines Market by Region

Airbus pleaded with European decision-makers not to put restrictions on Russian titanium imports. Sanctions on the metal, according to Airbus, would harm European aircraft while scarcely affecting the Russian economy. Comparatively, just one-third of Boeing's titanium demands are met by sources other than Russia for Airbus. Boeing stopped buying Russian titanium at the beginning of March. Despite this obstacle, Airbus recently reiterated its 2022 guidance and declared that its titanium sourcing requirements are met in the short and medium term. The business is stepping up its quest for non-Russian sources, though. Titanium has recently been accumulated by both Airbus and Boeing. Boeing anticipates that up to 141 of its aircraft on order, 90 of which are 737 MAX models, might be impacted by the developments in Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on aircraft supplies to Russia.

Analyst Review

The Aircraft Engine market is expected to undergo a major shift in the coming years. Optimizing supply chain, streamlining manufacturing processes, surge in pace of deliveries, and reducing backlog orders are some of the pressing concerns of aircraft engine market, which is expected toare anticipated to be addressed by global leaders over coming years.

A notable shift in business dynamics due to COVID-19 has been witnessed. Players across the supply chain are engaged in reducing their overhead costs and in doing so, the supply chain has been disrupted. For instance, the aircraft engine manufacturer is expected tois anticipated to keep limited inventory of component. In case of demand surge, the manufacturer is expected to order the reaming component to the OEM supplier. The OEM supplier would  have a limited stock and would enter into manufacturing the needed component, increasing the overall lead time. Such delays are increasing at a notable pace with increase in demand. Companies like Airbus and Boeing have outlaid plans to ramp up their manufacturing cycles and reduce delivery time by next year. Contrary to their plans the supply chain and OEM manufacturers are not yet matured or revived from the impact of COVDI-19 which may create delay.

The CRM service providers within the aviation industry are coming up with smart inventory management and forecast system that explore the integration of machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize overall system. These system uses predictive analysis to forecast the market demand and needed component within coming months based on market dynamics and previous order of the firm. Such software is expected to enable OEM suppliers and aircraft manufacturers to keep optimal stocking and reduce the lead time.

Among the analyzed regions, Asia-Pacific is the highest revenue contributor, followed by North America, Europe, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period, owing to increasing efforts of the Indian and Chinese governments to develop indigenous Aircraft Engine’ infrastructure.
