The aircraft engine market is segmented based on commercial and military aviation

During the aircraft engine market forecast period, the commercial segment is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment. The increase can be attributed to the rising demand for technologically advanced engines to replace conventional engines. Furthermore, the growing number of passengers has increased the demand for new commercial aircraft.

The military segment is also expected to contribute significantly to growth, owing to increased military aircraft procurement by the US DoD and the Indian government.

By Type

The conventional aircraft engine segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR for the aircraft engine market during the forecast period, based on technology. A traditional aircraft is also known as an aero engine. It is the primary power source for the aircraft's propulsion system. The majority of aircraft engines are either piston engines or gas turbine engines. Some of the most common types of aircraft engines are turboprop engines, turbofan engines, turboshaft engines, and piston engines.

By Wing Position

The aircraft engine market is segmented based on Two types Rotary Wing and Fixed Wing. Because of the increased demand for Aircraft engine market, the rotary-wing segment is expected to grow significantly during the projected period. Aircraft engine are employed for a variety of military purposes, including military logistics, air assault, command and control, and troop transport.

By Component

The turbine is forecasted to grow at the fastest CAGR rate in the aircraft engine market during the expected period. A turbine is a type of rotary engine that extracts energy from a flow of combustion gases. As a result, a turbine converts the kinetic energy of these gases into rotational motion. A turbine in an aircraft engine is made up of a series of blades that allow gases to flow into the turbine and push the blade. This causes a rotational motion, after which the less energetic gases are ejected.


Key players operating in the market include Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited, Honeywell International Inc., Safran, and Boeing, United Technologies Corporation-Pratt & Whitney Division, General Electric Company, Snecma S.A, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, JSC "Klimov"-United engine corporation.

15. Conclusion


An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
