Insights into the $1.2 billion global aircraft de-icing


Dublin, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Aircraft Deicing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to from offer.

The global aircraft de-icing market reached a value of US$1.2 billion in 2021. Going forward, the market is expected to reach US$1.6 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.44 % in 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst continuously monitors and assesses the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors. This information is included in the report as a major market contributor.

Aircraft de-icing refers to the process of removing ice, snow and frost from the surface of the aircraft. De-icing agents are typically made from ethylene glycol and propylene glycol based fluids, along with water, corrosion inhibitors, wetting agents and dyes. These agents reduce the freezing point of water and help clean various aircraft components, such as wings, fuselage, control surface, fan blades, engine inlets, propellers, sensors and the landing gear. De-icing agents are commonly available in Type I, II, III and IV variants which are also used to decontaminate the body of the aircraft before takeoff. As a result, they find many applications in the military and commercial aviation sector.

Significant growth in the aviation industry is one of the key factors creating a positive impact on the market. Aircraft manufacturers are placing increasing emphasis on improving passenger comfort and securing take-off and landing operations, especially during winters.

In addition, airport floor upgrades and improvements for material handling equipment are also increasing the market growth. Various technological advances, such as the advent of new infrared, hot water, tempered steam, forced air, electro-expulsive separation and electro-mechanical expulsion defrost systems, act as other growth inducing factors. With this in mind, manufacturers of de-icing agents are also developing environment-friendly product variants, thereby contributing to the growth of the market. Airlines are adopting these recyclable agents to minimize aircraft operational costs and reduce the risk of icing. Other factors including increasing passenger and cargo traffic across the globe along with increasing construction of new airports, especially in developing countries, are expected to further boost the market.
