Aircraft ice protection systemisa set of methods employed to prevent or clear atmospheric frost, snow, and freezing rain accumulation on the aircraft surface. Accumulation of ice leads to alteration in the airfoils,  thereby affecting the flight controls surfaces, degrading the performance and handling characteristics of the aircraft. Protection against such deposits is very important for safety. Failure to control ice accumulation on critical aircraft parts may lead to aircraft failures and fatal accidents.

The global aircraft ice protection system is driven mainly by existing and new aircraft operation, which is in turn increasing due to the increased preference for airways. Also, the FAA guidelines are responsible for boosting the aircraft ice protection market growth. Anti-icing fluids loose its effectiveness over time due to dilution, which means periodic maintenance is mandatory. This factor is responsible for a steadiness in the Aircraft ice protection system market growth.

The global aircraft ice protection system market is segmented by type, technology used, fluid type, application, end user, and region. By type, the market is bifurcated into de-icing and anti-icing. By type of technology, the market is divided into mechanical, electrical, thermal, and passive. It further includes pneumatic de-icing boots, bleed air technology, and others. Anti-icing fluids are glycolic fluids blended with water, inhibitors, and wetting agents. Companies manufacture three types of anti-icing fluids. These include type I, type II, and type IV. These fluids contain different amounts of glycol, according to the application need. The applications of ice protection system are tailwings, nacelle, propellers, windshields, engine, air inlets, and air data probes. By end user, the market is studied across commercial aviation, defense aviation, and general aviation. By region, the market analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA. Owing to the extreme cold climates, North American and European countries dominate this market.
