The report also notes that the more electric aircraft market is further segmented into fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft based on aircraft type. The development of more dependable and efficient auxiliary power supply systems is needed to drive fixed-wing aircraft, while recent technical improvements in the realm of power electronics and flight control system operations are expected to drive the expansion of rotary-wing aircraft.

Furthermore, the market is classified into civil and military based on end-user. The demand for more electric civil airplanes for carrying passengers and freight has expanded tremendously, while the rising usage of the developed electrical system in military tactical airlifters for airborne refueling and medical evacuation is likely to drive market expansion.

The analysis of the regional market for more electric aircraft has been conducted across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The European market holds the largest market share and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period. This is attributed to the presence of key players and OEMs such as Airbus, Thales Group, and Safran S.A. These system and component manufacturers are prominent companies in the region and have potential customers worldwide. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, with countries like China and Japan expected to remain important participants in the market. India, on the other hand, is emerging as the fastest-growing market for more electric civil aircraft during the same period, driven by its strong expansion in the commercial aviation sector.
