DUBLIN–()–The “Electric Aircraft VTOL (eVTOL) Market – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Design, Range, Use Case, Mode of Operation, Power Source, Component and Country – Analysis and Forecast , 2023-2032″ report has been added to from offer.

Global Electric VTOL (eVTOL) Aircraft Market is expected to reach USD 700.5 Million in 2032 from USD 27.5 Million in 2023, at a growth rate of 38.2% during the forecast period 2023-2032 . The growth of the global electric VTOL aircraft (eVTOL) market is expected to be driven by the growing number of smart cities and the growing need for sustainable transportation.

Market life cycle stage

Over the past few years, the trends in the number of smart cities and the need for sustainable transportation have dramatically increased around the world to optimize city functions and drive economic growth. In addition, several governments around the world have signed the Paris Agreement to reduce the carbon footprint in their respective countries, which promotes sustainable air transport. However, the road journeys of daily commuters in big cities are becoming very difficult due to increasing traffic congestion, so daily commuters are looking for efficient, sustainable and safer modes of transport to work and other desired destinations. Moreover, several megacities have already reached their limit of road infrastructure expansion due to limited land space in their cities. This provides the opportunity to develop urban air mobility using electric VTOL (eVTOL) aircraft in smart cities and megacities.

Additionally, eVTOL aircraft advancements offer various designs and improve efficiency by increasing operating range and enabling autonomous technology. In addition, the eVTOL platform offers various applications, such as air taxi, private air vehicle, cargo transportation and air ambulance, which has largely paved the way for various growth opportunities for the sectors of defense and trade.


The global electric VTOL aircraft (eVTOL) market is witnessing an increase in investment across all platforms, which is driving investments in the ecosystem, such as ground infrastructure and battery technology. The main challenge in operating eVTOL aircraft is the lack of battery technology. The batteries currently in use are lithium-ion, lithium-sulfur, and lithium-phosphate, which are insufficient to provide long-range power. In addition, the lithium battery energy density is low for eVTOL aircraft. Additionally, regulations for operating the eVTOL aircraft in urban areas and the development of vertiports are still in the development phase, further delaying the entry of the eVTOL aircraft into the market.
