Technological development in semi-conductors will support exciters segment share in the aircraft ignition system market

The exciters component segment will generate more than USD 60 million revenue in the market by 2026 due to technological development of semi-conductors, which are primary materials for development of electrical circuits in exciters. High-performance inductive and capacitive discharge with customer-configurable designs are some of the primary attributes of exciters due to the development of semi-conductors.

The spark generated by exciters in various engines is different. For instance, the aviation reciprocating ignition system requires a spark that has 100 times more energy than aviation reciprocating energy. To cater to such a vast scope, market players are introducing different exciters for different models of aircraft.

Rising demand for general aviation due to COVID-19 will improve reciprocating engine segment share

Reciprocating engines in the market will witness a growth rate of 4.5% till 2026.The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 has created medical emergency across the globe. Travel and trade restrictions have created a shortage of essentials and medical goods in many regions.

In such a situation, general aviation aircraft, which operates on reciprocating engines is catering to the rising demand for emergency and medical services. Various regulatory bodies across the globe are giving permission to small aircraft to transport essentials and medical goods, positively impacting the market size.

Rising number of general aviation aircraft in the U.S. to boost the North America market revenue

The rotary wing segment in the North America aircraft ignition system market captured a share of around 6% in 2019 and is expected to observe over 4% growth through 2026. The growth can be attributed to maximum number of commercial aircraft present in the U.S. Increasing per capita income within the region and rising business activities are increasing the demand for commercial aviation within the region.

There were approximately 220,000 civil aircraft registered in the U.S. in 2019. Among them, more than 90% were registered as general aviation aircraft. Majority of general aviation aircraft are used for personal commutation or recreational activities and operated on reciprocating engines, driving the market share.

Simple design and reliability are supporting the segment demand for magneto ignition system

Europe Aircraft Ignition System Market By Ignition System

The magneto ignition systems in Europe will grow at a more than 3% CAGR during the forecast timeframe. The magneto ignition is an engine-driven electric generator, which uses coils and magnets to generate high voltage current to ignite aircraft spark plugs. Simple & robust design makes magneto ignition systems more reliable over old reciprocating engines where majority of components are mechanical. These old engines have no chance of electrification, eliminating the possibilities for electronic ignition system.
