Aircraft Micro Turbine Engine Market Overview

Aircraft Micro Turbine Engine Market Size Aanticipated to Reach at a USD 2,127.7 Million In 2023 And Is Expected To Reach USD 3,573.3 Million By 2030, With A CAGR Rate Of 5.9 % by 2024–2030.

Aircraft micro turbine engine are also regarded as being manageable and having relatively little vibration and noise. Additionally, they provide a range of benefits including variable speed, compact size, quick installation, high-speed operation, cheap maintenance, and low NOX emissions. In both commercial and civil aviation, micro turbine engine are becoming more and more common. Additionally, these turbines are used in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications for tasks like criminal prevention, telecommunications, agriculture, disaster management, real-time reconnaissance, and remote sensing.

Aircraft micro turbine engine are small-scale combustion turbines that use micro combustion to provide cogeneration, or the simultaneous use of heat and electricity. It is preferred because of its features such as the use of various fuels, small size, and efficiency. Because aircraft micro engines are small, they may fit in very small spaces, freeing up space for other components in the design. The market has a promising growth potential over the projected period, owing to the inherent operational benefits of micro turbine engine  engines, such as low operating and maintenance costs and the introduction of new generation hybrid design in aircraft.

COVID-19 Impact vs Opportunities for Global Aircraft Micro turbine engine Market:

The impact of COVID-19 on the aircraft microturbine engine sector was unexpected, and it will continue in effect until the second quarter of 2021. The COVID-19 outbreak compelled governments to enforce strict lockdown measures, resulting in aircraft cancellations and a restriction on e-commerce services, resulting in a major drop in commercial aviation and logistical activity worldwide. Furthermore, the statewide lockdown impacted supply chains by forcing various manufacturing facilities throughout the world to partially or completely shut down their operations.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) yearly global statistics, the total number of commuters carried on scheduled flights increased to 5.2 % as compared to 2018. The overall passenger load factor in 2021 was 68 percent, down from 82 percent in 2019.

Thus, throughout the projected period, the increase in air traffic is expected to boost the growth of the aviation micro turbine engine market.

Recent News 

Collaboration and Partnerships: Within the European market, a noticeable trend is emerging as companies join forces to pioneer innovative technologies for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Concurrently, governmental bodies are easing regulatory restrictions, thereby expanding the scope for broader civilian applications

Illustrative Advancements: An illustration of this collaborative spirit is evident in the July 2022 contract between Ricardo and Pratt & Whitney Canada. This partnership aims to advance hybrid-electric propulsion systems for the next generation of aircraft [5]. Additionally, Fusionflight recently unveiled a groundbreaking lightweight and potent microturbine generator specifically designed for drone applications.

Market Dynamics


According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), worldwide military spending will reach $1,981 billion in 2020, a 2.6% rise from the previous year. In 2020, military spending would account for 2.4% of the global GDP. As a result of increased global military spending, the adoption of modern, more devastating warfare technology, such as highly efficient aircraft micro turbine engine, has increased. The increase in defense spending by several countries around the world is likely to drive the growth of the aircraft microturbine engine market during the forecast period.


According to NASA, distributed electric propulsion (DEP) technology is based on the assumption that tightly integrating the propulsion system with the airframe and dispersing several motors throughout the wing will boost efficiency, cut operating costs, and increase safety. The DEP employs propulsors that can be placed, scaled, and controlled with greater flexibility, allowing it to capitalize on the synergistic benefits of aero-propulsive coupling and outperform more traditional designs. Furthermore, the careful integration of electrically driven propulsors for boundary-layer ingestion increases propulsive efficiency. Propulsor placement and configuration can also be employed to reduce a lifting surface's trailing vortex system or to leverage an increase in dynamic pressure across blown surfaces for improved lift performance.


The growing temperature of the exhaust gases exacerbates the high-temperature condition. However, exhaust gas temperatures can be managed by recycling the excess heat to boost power output even further. To employ microturbine engines in aircraft, specialized cooling methods must be used. Adoption of this technology may be modest due to the greater mechanization involved. As a result, it may impede the expansion of the aviation microturbine engine industry.
