LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio's latest market research report on the global aircraft ice protection system market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2018-2022. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
According to Technavio analysts, the global aircraft ice protection system market will grow at a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecast period. The growing preference for electric architecture in newer generation aircraft is a major factor driving the market's growth.
The aerospace industry is facing challenges concerning emissions, cost, and fuel economy. Airlines are investing in developing electric systems for the replacement of pneumatic and mechanical systems. Electric architecture has become an emerging trend. The key purpose of shifting to electric system is lower fuel consumption, reduced maintenance, reduced emissions, and possibly lower costs. Electric- powered ECS, electric de-icing, and electrical actuators are some of the systems under consideration.

In this report, Technavio highlights the emergence of smart aircraft wing as one of the key emerging trends driving the global aircraft ice protection system market:
Emergence of smart aircraft wing
The wings are a vital part of an aircraft as they provide the lift necessary for the aircraft to fly. Aircraft designers have always prioritized wing design because it is important in increasing the aerodynamic efficiency of an aircraft. The surface of the wing consists of other control surfaces, which help the pilot operate the aircraft comfortably during the entire flight mission.
Wing surfaces are prone to ice formation. Any ice layer or chunk formed on the wings can affect the smooth flow of air over the wings. This can lead to an increment in drag. Drag increment will demand the use of excess fuel. This will hamper the fuel efficiency of the aircraft. Besides, if a chunk of ice enters the engine, it can cause severe outcomes due to damage to the blades. Therefore, all aircraft wings use some form of anti-icing or de-icing system to avoid ice formation.
"The researchers have been implementing different technologies and using advanced materials to enhance the ice protection system on aircraft. One such concept is the smart aircraft wing that can protect against ice formation while boosting efficiency and reducing aircraft weight. Smart wings are composite wings embedded with electric heaters and power controls near the leading edge of the wing," says a senior analyst at Technavio for aerospace products research.
