Aircraft Fuel Tanks: The Future Lies in Innovative Light-Weight Raw Materials

Fuel systems differ greatly in terms of the size and complexity of the aircraft in which they are installed. The fuel tank is an integral part of these fuel system in an aircraft, where it is associated with fuel line connecting it to the aircraft engine. In multi-engine passenger or cargo aircraft even multiple fuel tanks might be present. Each tank potentially equipped with fuel pumps internally. It further is equipped with associated valves and plumbing to fuel and refuel the engines. 

Innovations Drive Market Growth

Being an essential part of aircraft, its demand reciprocates with the growth of the aircraft industry. The growing passenger traffic is providing impetus to the aviation industry, where new aircraft are continuously added to meet the growing demand for air transport. New routes and better connectivity are boosting the chances of additions of new aircraft, which in turn propels the growth of the aircraft fuel tank market. Manufacturers in the market are investing in research and development activities to introduce innovative materials in aircraft fuel tanks. These innovations are directed towards optimizing the strength of the aircraft fuel tank along with the efforts to reduce the overall weight of the aircraft. The ultimate aim is to enhance the overall efficiency.
