The Global Air-to-Air Refueling Market is estimated to be USD 2.9 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.63 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.6%.



Market Dynamics

Aerial refueling is mainly defined as the process of sending aviation fuel from one aircraft to another when both are in their flight modes. Flying boom and progue-and drogue are two main methodologies that are used to carry out the aerial refueling processes. The former process is substantially faster than the other but needs a specific type of boom operator station setup. Factors like increasing demand for air-to-air refueling systems to support overseas deployments, increased defense expenditure of countries, development of advanced aerial tankers and increase in combat aircraft procurement are some of the drivers for the market. Whereas possible refueling of only one aircraft at a time through boom mechanism and refueling aircraft in rough weather or bad visibility are major restraints for the market.

The autonomous refueling methodology of aircraft mid-air is an opportunity for the growth of the market. Though, high installation and maintenance cost act as a challenge for the market.
