According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Aircraft Electric Motors Market is accounted for $9.05 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $15.52 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. Electricity from the battery powers the aircraft's electric motors. Electromagnetic forces are used to propel electric motors. An electric motor's electromagnet spins due to magnetic forces. Stacks of slim lithium-polymer cells make up the battery packs used to power aircraft motors. As electric motors don't need a lot of cooling systems, the shape of the propeller blades can be customized in a way that maximizes performance and efficiency.

According to Statista, the global air freight volume has increased significantly in the last few years, reaching 55.9 million metric tons in 2020. This volume is expected to increase further.

Market Dynamics:


Rising usage of UAVs and hybrid VTOLs

Companies from a variety of industries are optimistic about using drones to carry out essential tasks like delivering medical samples, inspecting infrastructure, and providing imaging capabilities. UAVs and e-VTOLs frequently use electric motors to propel their flights, which results in fully electric propulsion. With university pilot programs to support smart city models, the multipurpose use of UAVs encourages state and local governments to invest in drone technology and research. As a result, there is an increase in demand for UAVs and their growing viability in commercial applications, which is boosting market expansion.


Expensive and lack of infrastructure

Electric motors are more expensive than conventional aircraft engines, and the aviation industry does not use them as frequently as it could because of a lack of supporting infrastructure. There aren't enough charging stations, and there aren't enough people who are qualified to maintain and run them, which is hindering the global market's expansion.


Development of powerful electric motors

There is a demand for more potent electric motors that can supply the force required to propel an aircraft as electric propulsion gains popularity. Because of this, more potent electric motors have been created that can deliver the required power while remaining compact and effective. In addition, electric motors are being incorporated into various aircraft systems, including the flight control system, to supply power and boost efficiency. Due to this, aircraft can operate more smoothly and effectively.


Lower power to weight ratio in batteries

The lower power-to-weight ratio of the batteries in an electric aircraft will present a significant challenge to the market growth rate for aircraft electric motors. The growth is also hampered by the prohibitive costs of electric aircraft and changes in the price of raw materials used in production. Furthermore, the inability of electric aircraft to cover long distances will further restrict the scope of growth for the aircraft electric motors market.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a major effect on the aircraft electric motors market as the aviation sector experienced a sharp decline in demand. There has been a decline in aircraft maintenance and replacement activities as a result of travel restrictions and decreased passenger traffic. The overall market has been impacted by the decreased demand for new aircraft and aftermarket parts, which has resulted in a drop in sales and revenue. Similar to this, it is anticipated that investments in R&D and expansion in the aviation sector will decline as a result of a decline in airline revenue and a decline in air travel numbers. As a result, there might be less demand in the coming years for sophisticated, all-electric aircrafts.

The DC motors segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Over the forecast period, the DC motors segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share. Radio-controlled aircraft are one of the numerous applications for DC motors. The main energy conversion it performs is from electrical to mechanical. There are three types of direct current motors: brushed, stepper, and brushless. Depending on the load of the application, variable direct current motors have different torques and speeds. These motors are divided into various groups according to their configuration. Most of these motors have various performance characteristics, allowing to select one based on the intended use.

The engine control systems segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The engine control systems segment is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. Engine control systems have a number of benefits. It is mounted and monitors various engine and flight characteristics, such as throttle position, fuel flow, temperature, vibration, and pressure. It receives data from sensors that track pilot commands in addition to power from an engine alternator. In order to control engine performance and generate the necessary thrust while keeping the engine within safe and efficient operating norms, the control unit continuously analyzes data inputs and sends instructions to effectors, such as fuel meters and fan vane actuators. Such a wide range of uses is driving up segment demand.

Region with largest share:

Due to the region's expanding use of electric aircraft, North America is expected to hold the largest market share. Numerous manufacturers of electrical motors and systems, including MagniX, H3X, and Honeywell International, Inc., are located in this region, which contributes to the growth. These industry players consistently spend on research and development to create modern aircraft electric motors with increased efficiency and dependability. They also prioritize the development of electric aircraft systems over hydraulic ones.

Region with highest CAGR:

Owing to growing government initiatives in the region's nations, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience the highest CAGR during the forecast period. For instance, China is starting mass production of its first indigenous aircraft as it enters the electric aircraft market. Fuel cells, solar cells, ultra-capacitors, power beaming, or batteries provide the electricity needed to run the electric motors that propel the aircraft. Additionally, growth is a result of countries like India, China, Japan, and others making more investments in the aviation industry, and the growth of the regional market is anticipated to be fueled by the rising purchase of new aircraft to expand fleets to handle the increasing air passenger traffic.
