Global Ground Aircraft Heaters Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A ground aircraft heater is a device used to heat an aircraft while it is on the ground. Ground aircraft heaters are important because they help keep the aircraft warm and comfortable for passengers, and they also help protect the aircraft from damage caused by cold weather.

Diesel-powered Aircraft Heaters:

Diesel-powered aircraft heaters are used to maintain the temperature of the airframe at a constant level. The heat generated by an aircraft is utilized for various purposes such as warming cabin and cargo area temperatures, deicing runways, and pre-flight inspection. Diesel-powered heating systems are primarily employed on large commercial airplanes owing to their ability to provide consistent heating with higher output in lesser time intervals than electric systems.

Gas-powered Aircraft Heaters:

Gas-powered aircraft heaters are used to provide heat to the cabin of an airplane for maintaining its temperature at a desired level. These devices operate on the principle of thermodynamics and convert chemical energy into thermal energy, which is then dissipated into the atmosphere.

The primary function of these devices is to maintain a comfortable cabin environment by heating or cooling it as per requirement.

Application Insights:

The application segment is segregated into military and civil aircraft. The ground-based heaters used in civil aircraft are designed such as to comply with the international safety standards. These devices help in maintaining a comfortable temperature inside the cabin of an aircraft, thus reducing fatigue on crew and passengers. In addition, these devices also ensure that critical systems remain operational at optimal levels during flight operations by keeping cabin temperatures regulated.

Civil aviation authorities across countries such as India, China and Australia have issued regulations for commercial pilots to carry portable heaters on board passenger planes during winter season flights to reduce delays caused due to delayed take-off or landing of scheduled flights owing to frozen airports or snowfall conditions at airports. This factor has led market players like Honeywell International Inc., Rockwell Collins Inc., Textron Aviation LLC among others develop products specifically designed for use by pilots in their personal Aircraft Communication & Control (AC&C). Such initiatives are expected fuel demand from AC&C segment over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest market share of over 35% in 2017. The presence of a large number of aircraft operators and manufacturers in the region is expected to drive demand for ground aircraft heaters over the forecast period. In addition, increasing military expenditure by countries such as U.S., China, India, and Russia are likely to contribute towards growth in this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions owing to rapid expansion by airlines across emerging economies including China and India on account of growing passenger traffic is expected to boost demand for new planes thereby driving industry growth over next eight years (2018 - 2030). Moreover, rising government initiatives such as “Make in India” campaign undertaken by Indian Government are projected favorably impact regional market growth during same period due to increased manufacturing activities at domestic level which will lead rise production levels thus generating greater need for equipment with higher heating capacity required at airports etc.; hence propelling industry expansion.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for ground aircraft heaters from the commercial aviation sector as a result of the growth in air travel
  • The increasing use of ground aircraft heaters in military applications
  • The growing demand for ground aircraft heaters from the oil and gas industry, owing to the increase in exploration and production activities
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of more efficient and advanced ground aircraft heaters
  • The increasing popularity of portable ground aircraft heaters
