Two Large Companies Dominate the Market; Disruption Looms with a New Joint Venture
Auxiliary power units (APUs) are no longer an option on commercial aircraft like they were a few decades ago - they have become a standard. APUs' on-the-ground services include the provision of pneumatic power and electrical energy. A/C pack operation, the powering of self-contained generators within a craft, and emergency system activation - APUs have become a necessity for all these actions and more.
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney dominate the global commercial aircraft APU market. Honeywell's APU business has included companies such as AlliedSignal, Garrett, and Air Research Group, the original developer of the APU. Pratt & Whitney is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation, and its APU business has comprised Hamilton Standard and Sundstrand Corporation. In early 2018, The Boeing Company and European aerospace giant Safran agreed to embark on a joint venture that is sure to disrupt the market.
