Global Commercial Aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Market, 2018 –

Commercial Aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Market, 2018”

report has been added to’s

Auxiliary power units (APUs) are no longer an option on commercial
aircraft like they were a few decades ago – they have become a standard.
APUs’ on-the-ground services include the provision of pneumatic power
and electrical energy. A/C pack operation, the powering of
self-contained generators within a craft, and emergency system
activation – APUs have become a necessity for all these actions and more.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney
dominate the global commercial aircraft APU market. Honeywell’s APU
business has included companies such as AlliedSignal, Garrett, and Air
Research Group, the original developer of the APU. Pratt & Whitney is a
subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation, and its APU business has
comprised Hamilton Standard and Sundstrand Corporation. In early 2018,
The Boeing Company and European aerospace giant Safran agreed to embark
on a joint venture that is sure to disrupt the market.
