The increasing air passenger traffic coupled with the economic development in various countries, has boosted the piston engine market. In the present scenario, there is a growing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft which will drive the aircraft manufacturers to introduce more budget air carriers, thus accelerating the market growth in the future. Moreover, the sales of piston aircraft are expected to witness a significant boost from the emerging markets, where improving infrastructure will enable people to buy piston engine aircraft.
North America has the largest number of individual users due to the presence of infrastructure (small airfields) required for such airplanes. Such airfields are not present outside North America and Europe and this factor greatly decelerates the demand for piston engine aircraft. India, China as well as Japan are expected to be the greatest contributors to the market in the future. In India, particularly, there are extremely few flying general aviation aircraft, due to the extremely strict regulatory environment. However, the demand for aircraft, with developing infrastructure, is accelerating in the country. The Middle East & Africa are also expected to witness impressive growth rates and reach double-digit market share in the future.
