Orkun Altintas & Amartya De, Frost & Sullivan
While urban air mobility is becoming a reality, the market potential for UAM over the next 20 years must be assessed. Several locations are likely to host commercially viable UAM operations in the next 5-7 years. However, questions remain: Is the market feasible from operational and commercial perspectives? What is the UAM value chain? What are the state of regulations and likely roadmap to allow UAM operations?
The technology space in UAM is becoming increasingly complex as more platforms move away from conventional fuels and adopt electric batteries. Key aerospace players such as Rolls-Royce and Honeywell are bringing their propulsion products to the UAM market, and battery solutions are coming from Danecca, EPS, Hypoint, BAE Systems, etc.
Frost & Sullivan is witnessing significant impetus in various sub-segments of the UAM value chain, especially in advanced composites, artificial intelligence, collision avoidance systems, hydrogen fuel cells, autonomous navigation, propulsion systems, and battery technology. The notable UAM companies are Ehang, Volocopter, Lilium Aviation, Joby Aviation, Airbus, Hyundai, Bell Aviation, Wisk, Beta Technologies, and EmbraerX, according to Frost & Sullivan.
