Key Takeaways from the Study:

  • Ground Power Unit is aircraft ground support equipment that is used for powering aircraft while on the ground. The majority of the aircraft are powered with fixed or portable ground power units as the electrical system.
  • GPUs are typically used at airports with aircraft parked at the gate or on the ramp. They enable meeting aircraft power requirements including air conditioning, lighting, control systems, communication equipment & devices, and other purposes.
  • The power needs of aircraft differ from the domestic power supply. The airliners need power of 115 volts and 400 Hz electrical frequency, whereas, small-scale aircraft such as business or private jets need a 28-volt DC power supply.
  • The aircraft is powered using GPU while the engines are turned off. These devices are also used at facilities such as military bases and private aircraft hangars.
  • The rising travel by air is a major driver of the ground power unit market. Global aviation industry players are expanding their operations, airport infrastructure, and number of flights taken in a day to accommodate the rising number of air passengers.
  • Rising focus on efficient maintenance of aircraft another driving factor of the GPU market. Airliners are required to follow strict schedules and protocols to provide air passengers comfort and safety. The modern GPUs are flexible, mobile, and adaptable which allow for meeting power needs hassle-free.
  • The rising tourism sector around the world is expected to create growth opportunities for the GPU market. Tourism places worldwide are being upgraded with airports, aircraft, and modern powering equipment.
  • On the basis of application segment, the ground power unit (GPU) market is categorized into civil aircraft, business aircraft, and military aircraft. The civil aircraft segment is projected to hold the largest share of the market during the assessment period owing to an increased number of commercial flight operations.
