Icing up is a process of freezing of moisture on critical external surfaces of an aircraft on the ground before the flight. Freezing of moisture or formation of ice on aircraft control surfaces will result in loss of control and addition of weight, while also adding drag resistance. Frozen precipitation or frost on aircraft surfaces also compromises an aircraftÕs ability to obtain sufficient lift for departures.
Due to the increasing need for de-icing operations in extensively cold regions to avoid delays and ensure safe departures, the aircraft de-icing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 6%. The purpose of de-icing operations is to ensure safe aircraft landings, departures, and travel on airport grounds. Airport de-icing operations are performed by airports, airlines, or by third-party vendors.
Electric thermal heating systems are being used on windshields and propellers as de-icing systems. In recent years, an advanced method for aircraft de-icing has been developed that uses infrared radiation. The growth in the aircraft de-icing market is expected to be driven by modernization and expansion of airports in the North American and European regions due to extreme climatic conditions and the increasing demand for aircraft de-icing for safe departure and landing operations. Technological innovations in the aviation industry will also help the market grow at a steady pace.
Also, due to growing number of vendors who supply equipment and contract management services for recycling/recovery, collection, containment, and treatment technologies, the costs for technologies and contract services have reduced, thereby, giving small and medium-size airports the feasibility to offer these services and technology for its customers.
Aircraft De-Icing Market Major Players: Honeywell International Inc., Rockwell Collins, Vestergaard Company, Zodiac Aerospace, and UTC Aerospace Systems among others.
Recent Developments in Aircraft De-Icing Market:
May 2018: Bangor International Airport (BGR), has ordered a Global ER-2875 de-icer that is specially designed for larger aircraft like Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, Antonov An-225, Airbus A380 and Boeing C-17 military aircraft and similar large cargo planes.
Feb 2018: Southend Airport became the first airport in Britain to install an aircraft de-icing facility for increasing the speed and efficiency of the de-icing process. The de-icing of aircraft is made simple by pushback and taxiing to the centralized de-icing facility instead of de-icing it when it is on the apron.
