LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Electric aircraft are an idea whose time has come. Electrically propelled manned aircraft are arriving either in the form of hang gliders and sailplanes or in the form of large hybrid helicopters and airliners with electric nosewheels making them electric vehicles when on the ground, hugely reducing noise and air pollution and making them independent of tugs. Yet that is only the beginning and the story is now rapidly unfolding across the whole industry - with Europe often in the lead. Europeans has recently flown a two-seater fuel cell aircraft, a pure electric stunt plane and a manned hybrid electric aircraft with a Wankel engine.
In-demand market research report “Manned Electric Aircraft 2013-2023: Trends, Projects, Forecasts” worked out by IDTechEx offers unbiased insights into the performance of the manned electric aircraft market up to 2023 globally, also glancing at novel aircraft coming from Norway, Slovenia and a lot more countries examined side by side with potentially key components from Estonia to Japan and the United States of America.
The report presents market size estimates, timelines, gives examples of commercially available light aircraft and hang gliders, canvasses radical changes in all electric vehicle components, such as traction motors, power circuitry, range extenders including fuel cells and multiple energy harvesting, traction batteries, supercapacitors, and more; besides giving an up-close look at safety issues. It includes extensive company profiles, and intentions from interviews and recent conference presentations. All in all, more than 45 organisations are canvassed in the study.
