Electric aircraft is alluded to a sort of aircraft, which is controlled by electric engines. The electricity utilized by electric aircrafts are provided by different techniques, for example, ground control links, batteries, sun oriented cells, control radiating, ultra capacitors and power devices among others. Because of moderately high limit, batteries are the most generally utilized vitality bearers by electric aircrafts. Prior the batteries were overwhelming and badly designed to utilize, nonetheless, with the improvement of mechanical progression, lighter and battery-powered kind of batteries are by and large progressively utilized. A portion of the upsides of electric aircrafts incorporate, increment in security caused because of lessening in odds of any sort of mechanical disappointment, improved and upgraded mobility, and diminished danger of flame and blast among others. 

The utilization of electric power helps in lessening costs by sparing fuel utilization. Every one of these variables is required to enhance the execution of the flying business, accordingly prompting the development of the electric aircraft market. Further, extension of base of business and military aeronautics in both the created and creating nations are relied upon to drive the development of the worldwide electric aircraft market. 

However, the nearness of some limiting elements such as low capacity of weight proportion of batteries, non-possibility of costs, and absence of mechanical skill to fix the batteries are some major factors restraining growth of the global electric aircrafts market. Nonetheless, it helps for protecting the environment as it eliminates need for fossils fuels to run the engine of the aircraft. The demand for the electric aircraft is growing and which is reflecting positively on the growth of the global electric aircraft market.

Electric aircraft is referred to a type of aircraft which is powered by electric motors. The electricity used by electric aircrafts are supplied by various methods such as, ground power cables, batteries, solar cells, power beaming, ultra capacitors and fuel cells among others. Due to relatively high capacity, batteries are the most commonly used energy carriers by electric aircrafts. Earlier the batteries were heavy and inconvenient to use, however, with the development of technological advancement, lighter and rechargeable type of batteries are being increasingly used. Some of the advantages of electric aircrafts include, increase in safety caused due to decrease in chances of any kind of mechanical failure, improved and enhanced maneuverability, and reduced risk of fire and explosion among others. It also helps in protecting the environment owing to the elimination in the need for using fossils fuels to run the engine of the aircraft. The global electric aircraft market is expected to maintain a steady growth rate during the forecast period owing to the development of electric propulsion systems and introduction of battery powered electric propulsion systems in the aerospace industry. Further, technological evolutions such as, shift in preference of gas turbines to turbo electric propulsions, and shift from hydraulic landing gear to electric landing gear are expected to create further growth opportunities in the growth of the global electric aircraft market.

Rise in environmental concerns, growing awareness of safety issues and increase in investments in research and development activities in the aerospace industry coupled with reduced maintenance costs, are some of the factors which are likely to affect the global electric aircraft market positively and therefore drive the growth trajectories of the market during the forecast period. The use of electric power helps in reducing costs by saving fuel consumption. All these factors are expected to optimize the performance of the aviation industry, thereby leading to the growth of the electric aircraft market. Further, expansion of base of commercial and military aviation in both the developed and developing countries are expected to drive the growth of the global electric aircraft market.

However, the presence of some restraining factors such as, lower power to weight ratio of batteries, non-feasibility of costs, lack of technological know-how to repair the batteries in case of damage, and inability of electric aircrafts to travel only shorter distances are expected to create hindrances in the growth of the global electric aircraft market during the forecast period.
