Increased government spending on military to drive the market

Increasing adoption of composite structures in aircraft program and high acceptance from military, regional, and commercial aircraft manufacturers due to aircraft protection fuel the demand for the global aircraft lightning protection market. Moreover, the emergence of new aircraft manufacturers in Asia-Pacific region, and aviation guidelines and authorization standards about the use of Lightning Strike Protection (LSP) in aircraft also boosts the growth of the market.

Market Segmentation

The global aircraft lightning protection market is segmented based on aircraft type, fit, application, end-user, and geography. The aircraft type is sub-segmented into fixed-wing aircraft, rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles. The fixed-wing aircraft segment is further sub-segmented into narrow body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, business aircraft, very large aircraft, regional transport aircraft, fighter aircraft, light aircraft, military transport aircraft, and fighter jets. Rotary-wing aircraft is further divided into military helicopters and civil helicopters. Line-fit and retrofit are the segmentation of fit segment. Application segment includes lightning detection & warning, lightning protection (expanded metal foils, static wicks, transient voltage suppressors), and test service. Furthermore, military and civil are the bifurcations of end-user.

By geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world (RoW). North America is further bifurcated in U.S., Canada, and Mexico whereas Europe consists of UK, Russia, Germany, France, Italy, and Rest of Europe. Asia-Pacific is segmented into India, China, Japan, South Korea and Rest of Asia-Pacific while RoW is bifurcated into South America, the Middle East, and Africa.

“UAVs, by aircraft type anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR between forecast period,” says Accurize

By aircraft type, UAVs is expected to grow with fastest CAGR owing to less demanding flight profile, lifetime, and environmental requirements than manned aircraft. Moreover, UAVs segment has witnessed significant growth in the past few years due to the increasing applicability of UAVs in the commercial and defense sectors has boosted the aircraft lightning protection market.

“Retrofit, is anticipated to gain the fastest CAGR between 2017 and 2025,” says Accurize

On the basis of the fit segment, retro fit segment is projected to attain the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The high growth in the segment can be seen to the upgradation and modification of an aircraft during overhaul period, and key companies are dedicated on retro fitting the aging fleets of commercial aircraft. Moreover, line fit is estimated to dominate the segment with major aircraft lightning protection market share.

“Lightning protection, by application, anticipated to gain the fastest CAGR between 2017 and 2025,” says Accurize

By application, lightning protection segment is expected to achieve the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the fact that various components of lightning protection including static wicks, expanded metal foils, & transient voltage suppressors help in decreasing the extent of damage produced due to lightning strikes on the aircraft.

“Civil, by end user is projected to grow with highest CAGR over the forecast period,” says Accurize

Based on end user segment, civil is projected to grow with highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to growing civil aviation industry, due to rising air travel coupled with increased disposable income of the middle-class population.

“Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period,” says Accurize

Asia-Pacific is likely to attain the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period, driven by factors such as increasing air passenger traffic and improving economic conditions of the region. Moreover, emerging aircraft manufacturers in China, India, and Japan, are estimated to propel the demand for aircraft lightning protection in the coming years.
