 Product overview

Ultra light and light Aircraft Market to surpass USD 8.6 Billion by 2031, which is valued at 5 billion in 2021 at a  compound annual growth rate of 5.6%

Ultra-light aircraft or microlight aircraft is a lightweight aircraft that operators are only allowed to fly for sport and recreation. Neither Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) registration nor pilot license is required for an ultra-light. These aircraft are designed especially for recreational usage and short-distance flying. While a light aircraft is an aircraft with a maximum gross take-off weight of less than 12,500 lb. Most light aircraft are widely used for passenger and freight transport, sightseeing, photography, and other related functions, as well as for personal use.

Market Highlights

Ultra light and light Aircraft Market is expected to project a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period, 2021-2031

Growing usage of ultra-light and light aircraft in agriculture and advancements in farming techniques is expected to increase market growth. Increasing demand for recreational flights and deliveries of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is also expected to increase growth in the forecast period. Advances in UAV technology have strengthened their ability to conduct various military activities, such as surveying and tracking. The growing use of UAVs to counter-terrorism serves as a driving force in the demand for ultra-light and light aircraft. The market for ultralight and light aircraft is expected to show significant growth in the coming years.

Market Dynamics

Drivers

High demand for ultra-light and light Aircraft and UAVs to increase the market growth

Growing usage of ultra-light and light aircraft in agriculture and advancements in farming techniques is expected to increase the market growth. According to a 2019 survey by the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA), the agricultural aviation business aerially treats about 127 million acres of cropland. Increasing demand for recreational flights and deliveries of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is also expected to increase growth in the forecast period. Advances in UAV technology have strengthened their ability to conduct various military activities, such as surveying and tracking. The growing use of UAVs for counter-terrorism serves as a driving force in the demand for ultra-light and light aircraft. Ease of in-flight operations along with lower costs of ownership also has a positive impact on the ultra-light and light aircraft market.

Restraint

Trade restrictions and health threats to restraint the growth of the Ultralight and Light Aircraft market

Trade restrictions between the US and China hurt the growth of the ultralight and light aircraft market. Passenger health threats and limits on commercially flying drones also hinder the overall market growth. The use of UAVs for commercial and civil applications often relies on approvals from various regulatory bodies. It is also affected by air traffic restrictions placed on the flight of UAVs in their airspace by different countries, and the social acceptability of UAVs by their citizens. The lack of public understanding of the benefits provided by UAVs is expected to present a challenge to the development of the worldwide market for ultralight and light aircraft.
