At 33.0% CAGR, the Asia Pacific EVTOL Aircraft Market is speculated to be worth US$ 324.91 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights
According to Business Market Insights’ research, the APAC eVTOL aircraft market was valued at US$ 103.96 million in 2024 and is expected to reach US$ 324.91 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 33.0% from 2024 to 2028. Adoption of air taxis due to expansion of urban air mobility and increasing of electric propulsion-based eVTOL aircraft.
The urban air mobility industry is fueled by recent technological advancements, UAMs usage in different civil and commercial applications, and considerable investments in emerging nations. Several cities are expected to adopt the new generation of transportation using eVTOL aircraft due to recent technological breakthroughs in urban air mobility. The eVTOL aircraft are most suitable for shorter trips across congested cities to avoid traffic. The aircraft also help with middle-mile and last-mile cargo delivery and medical services. Therefore, the adoption of air taxis is growing. The air taxis used for urban air mobility are mostly electric powered. Hence, they do not cause atmospheric pollution. The urban air mobility industry is at the early stage, which is expected to drive the adoption of air taxis in the coming years. In the first quarter of 2020, Toyota had invested US$ 394 million in Joby Aviation eVTOL Aircraft. In addition, in March 2022, Airbus and The Helicopter Company (THC) signed an agreement to introduce urban air mobility and continue expanding helicopter activities in Saudi Arabia. This comes as an additional step toward co-creating an urban air mobility ecosystem in the country. In January 2022, Boeing made an investment of worth US$ 450 million in Wisk Aero to support the development of future pilotless flying taxis. Asia-Pacific is one of the key markets for urban air mobility and premium transportation as various countries such as China, India, Singapore, and South Korea have significant investments and heavy road traffic. The favorable government initiatives from leading countries and a growing number of startups entering the market fuel the adoption of air taxis. In December 2021, the Australian government announced a grant of worth US$23 million to explore the application of new aviation technology as part of its Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships Program. The funding aims to accelerate the adoption of urban air mobility transportation, which consists of drones, eVTOL aircraft, and alternative propulsion systems. In addition, in April 2022, Airbus and ITA Airways signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on urban air mobility (UAM) in Italy. The agreement also focuses on the safe and sustainable launch of CityAirbus NextGen eVTOL aircraft. Uber Air, EHang, Volocopter, and Lilium are among those who have forefront their intent to launch commercial passenger operations within the next three to five years. Thus, upcoming developments and initiatives from leading countries for incorporating the adoption of air taxis would strengthen the demand for urban air mobility, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the eVTOL aircraft market growth during the forecast period. This is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
