Global Commercial Aircraft Battery Market to Grow at a CAGR of 7.23% During the Period 2016-2020; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Commercial Aircraft Battery Market 2016 - 2020” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2017 -- Report forecast the global commercial aircraft battery market to grow at a CAGR of 7.23% during the period 2016-2020.

Aircraft batteries are used to start engines while initiating taxiing or the APU. The batteries are also used to power the airplane interiors and services (such as broadband and air conditioning). The major battery chemistries that are generally used as modern aircraft batteries are lithium-based (Li-ion and lithium iron phosphate), nickel-based (Ni-Cd or nickel metal hydride), and lead-acid. Lead-acid batteries are usually employed in light and general aviation aircraft. The nickel-based batteries dominate larger aircraft and helicopter applications, which are being replaced by the lithium-based batteries since the past decade.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial aircraft battery market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of commercial aircraft batteries.

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Americas

According to the report, in modern commercial aircraft, such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Li-ion batteries have been used as a major power source located in the forward electrical equipment bay and APU. These batteries support the refueling operations and enable to power braking systems when the aircraft is towed. They also support the functioning of critical electrical power equipment in case of a power failure. In addition, the APU and the generator start functioning once the main battery is switched on. The APU battery provides the power to start the APU, which in turn, starts the generators. The APU provides power for the onboard activities and backup power support (such as backup power for flight control electronics).

Further, the report states that the recurring incidence of fire breakouts that have been traced back to Li-ion batteries driving specific operations in aircraft, has been a cause of concern in the market. Batteries that are manufactured defectively undergo thermal runaway when the safety vents do not function. The fire incident in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner could be cited as an example. The APU of the aircraft, operated by Japan Airlines, caught fire due to thermal runaway when it was grounded, which originated due to overheating of a single cell, thereby forcing other cells to malfunction.

Global Commercial Aircraft Battery Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
