Aircraft propeller is one of the essential parts of the aircraft propulsion system that gives the necessary thrust for the aircraft to travel in the air. It consists of two or more blades joined collectively by a hub. As engine rotate the blades of aircraft propeller system generates lift (thrust) and this thrust enables the aircraft to move forward. With the increasing turboprop aircraft procurements by regional airlines for commercial purposes, aircraft propeller systems market is expected to grow at CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.
Adaptation of Electric Technologies for Improving Efficiency
With the main goal of cost savings and to improve planes’ fuel economy, advanced technologies have developed new engines are being deployed that are not intended only to provide a means to go faster or be more fuel efficient. One of the leading company in aircraft propeller systems, UTC Aerospace Systems has developed next-generation NP2000 propeller system that will have eight composite blades and enhanced electronic control system that increases the thrust and reduces the vibration and interior noise. It also allows operators to replace and remove individual blades on-wing, without removing the entire propeller system.
Based on the application, the market is segmented into commercial, military and general aviation. The increasing general aviation aircraft, advanced propeller features are manufactured with an enhanced aerodynamic design. In the year 2017, a total of 563 turboprop aircraft were delivered, and this number is further expected to increase during the forecast period that will generate the demand for aircraft propeller systems. This is also boosted by the increasing demand for sports aircraft that have lightweight and better aerodynamic design for better maneuvering.
In North America, there were a total of 1,722 general aviation airplane shipments in the year 2017 with turboprop aircraft deliveries having a market share of 54.2%. The US is leading country in North America with the highest market share during the forecast period due to increasing aircraft procurements and also due to the presence of major propeller systems manufacturers who design and manufacture new and advanced propeller systems.
Jul 2018: UTC Aerospace Systems has announced that it has been awarded a contract by the US Navy's Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to support NP2000 propeller upgrades for 24 Lockheed Martin C/KC-130T aircraft. Also the company announced that it has completed 9 of 12 contracted C-130H propeller upgrades for the Air National Guard (ANG). The total value of the NAVAIR and ANG contracts exceeds USD 140 million and were awarded through the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA).
Jul 2018: Austria’s Diamond Aircraft Industries displayed its new DART-550 turboprop aerobatic trainer for the first time at Farnborough International Airshow. The aircraft has completed its first flight in May, leading a contingent of the company’s general aviation and special mission aircraft. Similar to the DART 450 civilian and military aerobatic trainer, the 550, incorporates an electronic engine and propeller control system, Martin Baker MK16 ejection seats, Garmin G3000 avionics suite, and a 550-hp General Electric GE H75-100 engine.
Jul 2018: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced that the remotely-piloted Ikhana unmanned aircraft has completed its first flight within the National Airspace System (NAS) without the use of safety chase aircraft. This aircraft is an MQ-9 Predator B unmanned aircraft system (UAS) that was initially acquired in November 2006 to serve in Earth science missions and advanced aeronautical technology development. This UAV is powered by a Honeywell TPE331 turboprop engine with digital electronic engine control and a three-blade constant-speed propeller enabling control of the aircraft at higher altitudes (greater than 40,000 feet) that can be easily disassembled from the main modular unit.
