Major industry players in the market are focused on providing new technologies to support next-generation fighter jets and special mission aircraft. The demand for multipurpose and advanced ground support equipment to reduce support operation cost is supporting the ground support equipment market share.

For instance, in April 2018, Aviation Ground Equipment Corporation received a contract from U.S. Air Force to provide diesel-powered multi-output ground power unit to support JSF F-35 program. The new GPU can provide voltage ranging from 72kW to 28.5VDC for all aircraft types. The new units are easy to operate and require less maintenance while meeting all the requirements for military standards.

Increasing requirement of fighter jets to be combat ready within minimum timeframe is driving technological advancement in defense aircraft, making them more advanced in terms of systems and minimizing the time for ground operation. Most of the next-generation aircraft are now equipped with additional systems for reducing the ground support operation. This can be a major ground support equipment market decelerator within coming years.

Technological developments in defense ground support equipment to improve their mobility, ease of operation, and enhance scope of applications are supporting market growth. Industry players are simplifying designs and operational requirements of support equipment. This significantly improves their mobility, allowing fighter jets to operate from any remote location.

For instance, mobile ground support equipment is being used with next-generation fighter jets, which do not have indigenous operational capabilities. The new equipment is compact, foldable, easily transportable, and operated without any external power. The equipment requires only two types of cradles and carriages to perform armament loading/unloading operations, reducing the maintenance and operation cost for the support equipment.

The major ground support equipment market players are focusing on long-term contacts and collaborations with government authorities for development of more advanced support equipment for the defense industry. The constantly upgrading combat aircraft is one of the major market drivers for technological advancement of the support equipment. Most of the aircraft manufacturers are investing in next-generation equipment to support new aircraft.

For instance, the new fifth-generation F-35A requires more advanced support equipment then the conventional combat aircraft. Every system of Lockheed Martin F-35A has an associated support equipment to increase aircraft flight time and efficiency. Apart from compact support the new aircraft also has weapon loader and power generators to support ground operations along with large air conditioning units to cool down avionics systems during the landing and takeoff.  

Some major findings of the ground support equipment market report include:

  • Increasing aircraft orders from countries including India, China, and South Korea.
  • Increasing R&D investments and government contracts to manufacture next-generation defense aircraft and support equipment.
  • Rising demand for electric ground support equipment in Europe due to government regulations to cut down carbon emission.
  • Introduction of new hybrid ground support equipment that requires less maintenance and higher output compared to conventional GSE.
  • Some of the major industry players in ground support equipment market are Cavotec SA, Enersys, Guinault, Tronair, Rheinmetall AG, JBT Corporation, and ITW GSE.
  • Most of the major aircraft manufacturers are also providing support equipment along with the aircraft to gain a competitive advantage in the competition.
  • Increasing demand for compact and multipurpose ground support equipment to reduce operational cost is supporting the demand for the market.
