Aircraft Refueling Hose Market size is estimated to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The proliferating demand for military jets for special purpose missions coupled with the increasing tanker size for supporting aerial refueling operations will drive the aircraft refueling hose market growth. The significant product demand is further propelled by the rising defense budget, including the U.S., China and India, along with the increasing commercial airplane deliveries. For instance, in March 2019, China government announced its defense budget that will account for USD 177.61 billion with an increase of around 7.5% compared to the previous year.
Increasing commercial airplane delivery with a high demand for lighter airplanes with improved fuel efficiency will boost the aircraft refueling hose market share. The rising air passenger traffic along with the increasing demand for low-cost carriers is fostering the usage of refuellers in commercial air carriers. According to the Centre for Aviation (CAPA), in 2017, 1,740 commercial air carriers were delivered with an increase of around 1.5% compared to the previous year.
Rising low cost carriers demand will positively enhance aircraft refueling hose market size. Increasing adoption of low-cost carriers can be attributed to the availability of a vast network of routes at lower fares. Additionally, airliners are focusing on reducing extra services given to customers for free and offering packages at standardized rates, supporting the lowering of air fares.
