Market Buoyancy Analysis

The vehicle used for the hydrant refueling system is called hydrant dispensers. These special vehicles are connecting aircraft tank inlets with underground piping systems. This system has several benefits such as increased safety since it does not carry fuel, reduces the aircraft turnaround time, and helps cut the overall cost.

To accommodate the surging passenger rate, commercial airlines are expanding at a soaring pace. Surging passenger traffic demands fast operations thus, it is likely to increase the demand for hydrant refueling systems. A rise in system demand drives the dispenser’s market.

  • Short Term (2023-2026): Rising population leads to growing airport infrastructure spending along with cost benefits and increased safety offered by hydrant dispensers is driving the market for hydrant dispensers.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): Asia Pacific and North America are anticipated to witness high hydrant dispensers demand on the back of changing geo-politics and climbing military spending. The military has been one of the major consumers of the hydrant dispensers and the increasing fleets of military aircraft movement per year both on land and sea will drive the market.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): Initiatives by the market players leading automation and safety technology to drive hydrant dispenser demand in a long run.

According to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 5.3% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Market Dynamics Outlook

“Cost-benefit and Increased Safety to Foster the Market”

Fuels are typically kept in large containers as part of the traditional procedure for refueling the airplane. Nonetheless, more contemporary airports today use fuel hydrant dispenser systems for aircraft refueling. The reason behind the large adoption of these systems is reduced logistics and transportation expenses.

Conventional fuel tanks are required to replenish themselves with fuel for continuing their operations after servicing the aircraft. Due to this, it makes constant movements between the airside and the fuel farm. This increases the operational cost of the fuel trucks. Whereas the hydrant dispensers are required to move from their parking place to the aircraft parking stand where fuel hydrant plots are already present.

On similar grounds when conventional fuel tanks constantly move a ton of fuel on their back this adds additional fuel costs due to load. Whereas, the hydrant dispenser does not carry this fuel at its back. These advantages of hydrant dispensers save logistics and transportation cost for the owners, which overall reduce the operational cost.

Similarly, a fuel truck carries a higher safety risk because there is a likely possibility of accidents with other vehicles and ground support equipment that could result in fuel spillage. Since the fuel hydrant dispenser does not carry fuel, the risk factor is eliminated to a greater extent.

“Strict Global Emission Norms Forging a Squeezed Market”

Diesel engines produce polluting gases like nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, black exhaust soot, and non-methane organic gases, which are more harmful than CO2 and petrol engines.

Medical problems like changes in lung function, headaches, irritation in the nose and eyes, fatigue & nausea, and respiratory changes are caused due to exposure to diesel exhaust. Governments around the globe are following strict environmental norms to manage pollution.

India took a significant step and jumped directly to BSVI norms, skipping BSV. These shifts have forced off-highway diesel engine manufacturers to either update the existing technology, which will be capital-intensive or shift from diesel engine manufacturing to some other segment.

Despite having fewer CO2 emissions, the diesel off-highway engine market is held back by these drawbacks, which are squeezing the hydrant dispensers market.

Country-wise Insights

How Busy Airports Boosting Demand for Hydrant Dispensers in the US?

The United States holds a big share of large- and medium-sized airports. The number of busiest airports as per flight frequency and air passenger traffic is the highest in the country which lays the opportunity for fast and efficient fueling infrastructure to meet the fuel requirements at the utmost safety measure possible.

Similarly, the country operates the largest number of military aircraft, which, in turn, is driving demand for hydrant dispensers and aviation refueling equipment from this sector.

The US hydrant dispensers market is estimated to account for 26.4% revenue share of the global hydrant dispensers market by 2023 and will grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period.

Why Improving Airport Infrastructure Propelling Demand for Hydrant Dispensers in China?

China is known as the “factory of the world”. The demand for hydrant demand is likely to gain traction due to increasing airport infrastructure development in the country in order to cater to its booming passenger count. Increasing middle-class families and disposable income is fueling the demand for air travel.

Military spending along with above described factors are all contributing to the country's growing aviation industry, which is paving the way for the introduction of hydrant dispensers.

Due to such favorable factors, China’s market for hydrant dispensers is expected to register a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast gaining 367.1 BPS in 2033 over 2023.
