Sailplane Market Outlook 2027 -

A sailplane is a type of glider aircraft, which is used in sports of gliding and leisure activities. It is an aerodynamically designed aircraft that develops naturally occurring currents of rising air to remain airborne or to gain altitude. In most developing countries, glider aircraft now accounts for a significant percentage of the civilian-owned aircraft. For instance, in Canada, the glider aircraft fleet made up to 20.4% of the entire civilian aircraft registered in 2019. Moreover, in countries where there is no specific extra regulation, glider aircraft are considered as regular aircraft and are subject to certification requirements for both aircraft and pilot. The increasing demand for sailplane in the civil market and sports is expected to boost to the growth of the sailplane market.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The global market for sailplane is severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic saw a decline in the economic growth in almost all the major countries, thus affecting consumer spending patterns.
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of numerous industries across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of sailplane, which negatively impact the market growth.
  • However, this situation is expected to improve as government has started relaxing norms around the world for resuming business activities.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Increasing traction for the sports and recreational activities and the innovations in the universe of the sailplane is considered to be the prime driving factor for the growth of the market.
