Zero-emission aircraft make use of energy sources that doesn't release any harmful effluents into the environment. They are a viable option to power aircraft amidst rapidly declining reserves of fossil fuels, high operational costs of aircraft, and rising greenhouse effect across the world. Experts are continuously developing and testing zero-emission aircraft technologies using hydrogen, electricity, and solar cells. Companies, such as ZeroAvia, Inc., magniX, and others, have successfully tested their zero-emission aircraft in recent years.
There are some challenges associated with zero-emission aircraft in both battery-powered and hydrogen-based models. The major limitations related to electric aircraft are the heavyweight of batteries and the recharging time, for instance, at present, the chargers take hours to recharge the batteries. Hydrogen aircraft have their share of limitations too. Today, liquid hydrogen storage is one of the most viable possibilities, although storing hydrogen as compressed gas has issues in terms of aircraft weight and volume. However, all major aircraft manufacturers and numerous startups are working tirelessly to address the obstacles of zero-emission aircraft by researching, creating, and developing innovative technologies. Several manufacturers expect the commercial launch of full-scale aircraft by 2030-2040.
Increased air passenger traffic across the globe and reduced GHG emissions are expected to drive the zero-emission aircraft market during the forecast period. However, technological challenges associated with solar, electric, and hydrogen-powered aircraft and high costs associated with the production and handling of hydrogen are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market. Moreover, proactive government initiatives toward the development of zero-emission aircraft and advancements in zero-emission aircraft technologies are expected to offer lucrative opportunities in future.
The market segmentation is based on source, range, application, type, and region. By source, the market is divided into hydrogen, electric, and solar. Based on range, it is classified into short-haul, medium-haul, and long-haul. Based on application, it is bifurcated into passenger aircraft and cargo aircraft. Based on type, it is bifurcated into turboprop rear bulkhead, turbofan system, and blended wing body. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Competitive analysis and profiles of the major zero-emission aircraft market players include AeroDelft, Airbus S.A.S., Bye Aerospace, Eviation Aircraft, HES Energy Systems, Joby Aviation, Lilium, Pipistrel d.o.o, Wright Electric, and ZeroAvia, Inc.
