By end use, the civil & commercial segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period

Civil & commercial use of ultralight and light aircraft include aircraft used for in personal flying, air sports, business travel, survey & research, medical, training, and passenger and cargo transport applications. This segment includes all ultralight and light aircraft except military and regional commercial aircraft. Light business aircraft are used for commercial passenger transport. These aircraft are lightweight and cost-effective versions of business jets. They require less runway and have a lower operating cost when compared with large business jets.

By aircraft type, the light aircraft segment has the highest share in the forecasted period

Light aircraft include fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft such as planes, helicopters, and UAVs. These aircraft have a defined weight category of 600 kg to 5,700 kg. Upcoming technologies such as electric/hybrid aircraft to be used for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and cargo transport have also been included in the scope of light aircraft segment.

CTOL segment has the highest share in the forecasted period

Based on flight operation, the ultralight and light aircraft market is segmented into Conventional Take-off and Landing (CTOL) and Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL). CTOL aircraft include fixed wing ultralight and light aircraft. These aircraft require a runway or an airstrip for operation and usually have turboprop or piston engines. In the case of seaplanes, the runway is water, but the approach is similar to other passenger aircraft. CTOL aircraft are the most commonly used aircraft, and they follow the approach adopted by any conventional aircraft. Student pilots use ultralight and light aircraft to learn the basics of flying, including take-off and landing.
