Description

Auxiliary power units (APUs) are no longer an option on commercial aircraft like they were a few decades ago - they have become a standard. APUs' on-the-ground services include the provision of pneumatic power and electrical energy. A/C pack operation, the powering of self-contained generators within a craft, and emergency system activation - APUs have become a necessity for all these actions and more.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney dominate the global commercial aircraft APU market. Honeywell’s APU business has included companies such as AlliedSignal, Garrett, and Air Research Group, the original developer of the APU. Pratt & Whitney is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation, and its APU business has comprised Hamilton Standard and Sundstrand Corporation. In early 2018, The Boeing Company and European aerospace giant Safran agreed to embark on a joint venture that is sure to disrupt the market.

Research Scope

This growth insight analyzes the current market landscape. While it is a global study, most of the small gas turbine engine production takes place in the Americas and Europe. 

This study profiles OEMs and their flagship APUs. 

The profiles included are as follows: 

  • Current models offered 
  • Applicable airframe platforms 
  • Weight 
  • Electrical output specifications 
  • Fuel consumption 
  • Pneumatic power specifications 
  • Ten-year estimated demand 

Key Issues Addressed

  • Which companies are the major market participants? 
  • What are the flagship APUs being installed on commercial aircraft today? 
  • What is the forward-year outlook for the market? 
  • What are upcoming key developments through 2019? 
  • What is the current and future focus of R&D? 
  • What are corporate strategies observed in the market? 
  • Are manufacturers able to keep pace with demand (is a ramp-up required)? 
  • Is any manufacturing relocation happening? 
  • What are the current and potential partnerships/joint ventures with emerging participants? 
  • What is the overall direction of the aftermarket? 
  • Which companies are driving change? 
  • What pushes airlines, lease companies, and aircraft manufacturers to select a specific APU? 
  • What are some of the major growth opportunities for commercial aircraft APU?
