LONDON--()--The global light aircraft market is expected to post a CAGR of close to 5% during the period 2018-2022, according to the latest market research report by Technavio.

A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing adoption of private air travel. In the global market, the lightweight aircraft has been predominantly used in the fields of personal recreation and instructional use in pilot-training academics. Chartered flights are more preferred by high net worth individuals, as these aircraft offer the flexibility of schedule and also helps passengers avoid the long procedures involved in commercial flights. Light aircraft are increasingly being used to provide services like private tours to selected destinations and are more preferred than helicopters owing to their relative cost-effectiveness while providing a similar or even better level of comfort, safety, and privacy.

This market research report on the global light aircraft market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Global light aircraft market: Advent of electrical VTOL

The aviation industry continues to be one of the most carbon-intensive industries and currently lags in the race of electrification, with projections indicating it to consume one-fourth of the world’s carbon budget by 2050. Adoption of the electric propulsion system in aircraft not only reduces carbon footprint but also delivers improved efficiency, safety, and scalability. The design of the aircraft can synergize with its aerodynamic properties to incorporate vertical takeoff and landing feature by ingesting the boundary layer and reducing drag produced at the aircraft’s wake.

“Despite the steady growth of electric-powered light aircraft, the feasibility of using a renewable power-driven light aircraft is still questionable. Lithium batteries used to power the aircraft are prone to catching fire when the aircraft is exposed to harsh environmental conditions,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on aviation.
