Global Electric Aircraft Market size is projected to be valued $149 Million by 2025; with a CAGR of 7.5% from 2017 to 2025. An electric aircraft is such an aircraft which is powered by electric motors through electricity supplied by a variety of energy sources such as batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, ultracapacitors, and power beaming. Batteries are the most common energy carriers used by electric aircraft due to its relatively high capacity. It also helps to protect the environment by eliminating the need for the use of fossils fuels to run the engine of the aircraft.
Key factors driving the growth of the global electric aircraft market include advantages of electric aircraft compared to traditional aircraft, and lower cost of ownership of electric aircraft. But, the necessity for development of high-density battery solutions for electric aircraft may limit the growth of the electric aircraft market. Additionally, electrification of large commercial jets would provide new opportunities for players in this market.
