Market Overview:

Aircraft Ignition System Market size surpassed USD 450.2 Million in 2022 and is expected to showcase a CAGR of over 4.9% from 2023 to 2032. By the end of the forecast period, the market is anticipated to reach a valuation of around USD 730.2 Million.

An aircraft ignition system is a critical component that provides electrical sparks to ignite the fuel-air mixture in the combustion chamber of the aircraft engine. It is a crucial part of the engine's operation, and any malfunction can result in engine failure, causing potential danger to the aircraft and its passengers. 

Aircraft Ignition System Market

To get more info about this report - 

The aircraft ignition system industry has witnessed significant growth in recent years, driven by the increasing demand for modern aircraft, rising air passenger traffic, and the growing trend towards aircraft electrification. The market comprises several key players, who are continuously investing in research and development to improve their product offerings, enhance system efficiency, and comply with the latest regulations and safety standards. With the development of new and advanced aircraft ignition systems, such as electronic ignition systems, the market is expected to witness further growth in the coming years. Additionally, the increasing focus on reducing carbon emissions and improving fuel efficiency has led to the exploration and development of new ignition systems that run on alternative fuels, such as hydrogen and biofuels. 

Furthermore, increasing demand for air travel related latest stats is also contributing to the growth of the market, for instance, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), global passenger traffic (measured in revenue passenger kilometers or RPKs) in 2019 reached 8.7 trillion, which is a 4.2% increase compared to the previous year. The demand for air travel has been steadily growing for several decades, with an average annual growth rate of around 5% in the past 20 years. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic causing a significant decrease in air travel demand in 2020, the IATA predicts that passenger traffic will recover and reach pre-pandemic levels by 2024. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for air travel, accounting for around 40% of global passenger traffic.

By Engine Type Synopsys:

By engine type, the global aircraft ignition system market is dominated by the turbine engine market, rather than reciprocating engines. This can be attributed to the increasing use of turbine engines due to their low maintenance cost and high performance. The exciters section holds the largest share in terms of components, as spark plugs need to be replaced frequently. 

By End User Synopsys:

The market has been divided into two segments based on the end user - OEM and aftermarket. The aftermarket segment is anticipated to dominate the market in 2022 as it involves replacement of parts and maintenance services for installed components. During maintenance procedures, several components of aircraft ignition systems like exciters, ignition leads, capacitors, spark plugs, switches, distributors, and ignitors are replaced.
