Aircraft pushback tugs, which serve as towing equipment, are also expected to contribute to market growth. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, global sales of aircraft tugs declined in 2020 because of a slowdown in the aviation industry. However, the market is getting back on its feet gradually with things opening up.

Electric aircraft tugs are more reliable and easy to handle, leading to increased demand for them across regions. Growing concerns regarding emissions have shifted the focus towards the use of electric-powered ground vehicles. Improvements in battery technology, ranging from low-density lead-acid batteries to high-flux lithium ion batteries with SiC films, have led to the aviation industry’s gradual shift to electric ground support equipment such as electric towbarless tugs.

As per Fact.MR’s analysis, the global aircraft tugs market is expected to expand steadily at a CAGR of over 4% from 2021 to 2031.
