DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vww24h/global_aerospace) has announced the addition of the "Global Aerospace and Military Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global Aerospace and Military APU market to grow at a CAGR of 3.73% over the period 2013-2018
An APU is used when an aircraft is on the ground to provide ground power, hydraulics, air conditioning, and air to start engines. Most of the APUs use centrifugal compressors. They work by spinning an impeller that throws the air outward through a convergent duct with diffuser veins to direct the compressed gas on to the combustion chamber. These APUs are even found in naval vessels, towed artilleries, and heavy trucks.
An increase in research and development activities is helping the market to develop an efficient APU for the future. Vendors are developing systems that can help increase the strength and efficiency of existing aircraft in unfavorable conditions.
According to the report, an increase in demand for aircraft has led to increased demand for APUs. APUs provide compressed air to operate the on-board air-conditioner and provide power to the aircraft when the engine is not running.
Further, the report states that reduced defense budgets are encouraging the maintenance of existing APUs rather than replacing them with new ones in aircraft. Because of Department of Defense budget cuts, existing APUs are being upgraded rather than being replaced with new ones. These upgrading programs are hampering the demand for new APUs in the Global Aerospace and Military APU market.
