Manned Electric Aircraft Market – Projected to be a $24 Billion Business by 2031 – Research and Markets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Manned Electric Aircraft 2016-2031” report to their offering.

The coverage in the report includes 2016-2026 forecasts of low and high priced electric aircraft sales by number, unit price and market value and a view of figures up to 2031 including assessments by several leading players. The subject matter includes looking at how electric aircraft have largely followed electric land and water vehicles. Pure electric small ones appeared first, about 50 years after the first electric boats and cars. Hybrid ones are needed for the longer distances and tougher duty cycles and only now are these getting serious investment.

The report finds that the delays are only partly explained by the tougher demands and regulatory requirements of aircraft and how things are now changing with much larger commitments. In 2016, Siemens and Airbus agreed to pool 200 engineers to work on them, the level of effort Toyota allotted to hybrid cars twenty years earlier, with major commercial success resulting today.

Toyota enjoys well over $20 billion dollars of sales of electric cars, buses and forklifts with Honda and BMW successful too – interesting because all three are now tackling aircraft. Indeed, Google and Facebook are involved in electric cars and aircraft and Apple is interested so it is wake up time. The report analyses the opportunities in new aircraft and their changing key components.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Executive Summary & Conclusions

2. Introduction

3. Types of Power-train

4. Energy Storage

5. Energy Harvesting & Regeneration

6. Energy Independent Vehicles EIV
