Aircraft Battery Market – Explores New Growth Opportunities By 2025


A battery is a device containing single or multiple cells that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. An aircraft has a main battery and auxiliary power unit (APU) battery. The main battery activates the aircraft even before the aircraft engine has started. Main batteries are also used in refueling the plane. The main battery provides backup power to the aircraft in case of emergency power failure. Aircraft batteries help to power the electrical system in an aircraft. When the APU or engine starts, they drive the aircraft generator which power the aircraft’s electrical system and also recharges the aircraft batteries. APU also acts as redundancies in case of emergency power failure. Lithium ion batteries are used in main and APU batteries. These batteries are made of eight cells that produce ~32-V DC. Lithium ion batteries contain redundancies that help the aircraft to fly even in case of battery fault.

Rising demand for lithium ion based battery compared to nickel cadmium batteries are increasing the market size of the global aircraft battery market. For instance, aircraft manufacturer Boeing has selected 787 Lithium ion batteries for both main and APU batteries. This is expected to increase the demand for Lithium ion batteries that further drives the aircraft battery market. Nickel cadmium batteries are larger and heavier and less efficient than Lithium ion batteries. Rising demand for military aircraft batteries are also driving the size of the aircraft battery market. With rise in demand for highly sophisticated aircrafts for defense forces, there is a need for advanced, light weight batteries for aircrafts. This is subsequently driving the demand for light weight aircraft batteries and increasing the market size of the global aircraft battery market.
