Market Dynamics


Use of electric aircraft for logistics purpose

The logistics sector is moving towards the zero or low emission transport solutions due to environmental concerns. That’s the reason the logistics industry players are highly investing in the transport modes which deploy electric based vehicles. The electric aircraft with advanced features is also helping logistics sector to deliver their cargo on time. The electric aircraft is also cost effective in nature. Thus, the use of electric aircraft for logistics purpose is driving the market growth over the projected period.


Lack of development of high-density batteries

The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are not able to develop batteries with high density due to lack of resources. The electric aircraft requires batteries that can assist in long distance journeys. Still, the long shelf-life batteries have not been introduced in the electric aircraft market. With the help of technological advancements, this type of battery is expected to be launched in the near future. Thus, lack of development of high-density batteries is restricting the growth of the global electric aircraft market.


Surge in demand for low or zero emission aircrafts

Due to the environmental issues and concerns, the government of developed and developing regions is recommending for the launch of low or zero emission aircrafts. Thus, the electric aircraft does not emit carbon dioxide or greenhouse gas which is saving the environmental pollution. Hence, this is driving the demand for electric aircraft in the market. As a result, the surge in demand for low or zero emission aircrafts is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global electric aircraft market during the forecast period.


High cost of investments

The manufacturing of electric aircraft requires lot of money. The manufacturing cost of electric aircraft includes labor, hardware, and technology. These components must be of high quality in nature. Many of the original equipment manufacturers cannot afford this huge amount. As a result, the high cost of investments is a major challenge for the expansion of the electric aircraft market.

Recent Developments

  • DHL Express bought 12 electric cargo planes from startup aviation in August 2021 for delivery by 2024, with plans to create the world’s first electric air transport network.
  • CUSTOMCELLS, a German manufacturer of custom lithium-ion battery cells in July 2021 teamed with Lilium GmbH. CUSTOMCELLS, which provides major aviation, military, and automotive customers such as Porsche AG will be one of Lilium’s primary suppliers, producing lithium-ion batteries on a large scale for the all-electric Lilium Jet.
  • American Airlines invested around USD 25 million in Vertical Aerospace Group in June 2021, which is developing a small and electric powered aircraft that could transport people from cities to airports by taking off and landing vertically, similar to helicopters. The corporation intends to place a $1 billion purchase for small electric aircrafts.
