Comparative SWOT & Strategy Focus - 2014-2017 - World's 4 Leading Aircraft Engine Manufacturers - Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, GE Aviation, Safran's-4-Leading-Aircraft-Engine-Manufacturers---Pratt--Whitney-Rolls-Royce-GE-Aviation-Safran.html

Global Aviation Propulsion Sector on the Brink of a Technological Leap Driving Strong, Current Demand for Commercial & Regional Jets with Robust Growth Projections over Medium to Long Term:

The global aviation propulsion sector is on the brink of a technological leap with decades of research on technological evolution by key industry OEMs transpiring into next generation of aerospace propulsion systems that have been amongst the key drivers of significant replacement demand underway across the commercial & regional aviation segments of-late with their optimized operating economics besides significant reduction in emissions as well as noise levels.

Amongst engine manufacturers, CFM & Pratt & Whitney have been at the forefront of this R&D driven battle for supremacy of the regional & narrow-body segments of the aviation industry with their LEAP (Leading Edge Aviation Propulsion) & Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine technologies respectively while Rolls Royce & GE wage a pitched battle in the wide body segment, especially, over the Boeing's 787 Dreamliner program variants with GE maintaining a significant lead over Rolls Royce while the 777X program has gone GE's way while Rolls Royce retains the Airbus's A380XWB aircraft program.

The demand for commercial aircrafts globally is being driven by growing fleet replacement demand across airliners propelled by significant growth in air traffic and technological innovations, especially, next-generation aircraft engines delivering an optimized operating economics with a 15%-20% enhanced fuel efficiency along-with significantly reduced emissions and enhanced aerodynamic efficiency. Introduction of new engine programs by almost all key manufacturers featuring cutting-edge technologies & radical innovations have in turn been the most significant demand driver for the latest aircraft programs introduced by OEMs.

The technological & innovation focus across engine manufacturers has been varying, ranging from Geared Turbofans to Material Science Innovations, aimed at delivering enhanced operating & fuel efficiencies. Pratt & Whitney, making a strong comeback to the narrow-body segment, dominated by CFM, has been focusing on & basing its overall technology strategy on the Geared Turbofan (GTF) technology while the segment leader in narrow body, CFM, has been focusing on incorporation of material science innovations over its LEAP engine program, which marks CFM's first major, comprehensive renewal of its core engine portfolio in over 4 decades. The LEAP engine program leverages GE's significant experience & capabilities in military aircraft engines domain, built over the decades, to match the enhanced efficiencies offered by the GTF technology which has made significant inroads in the regional segment of-late with success over a number of latest aircraft programs. Rolls Royce, too, has chosen to go the GTF way with its plans to develop two next-generation engine cores featuring GTF technology to augment its case & protect its 50% market share in the wide body segment and plans to re-enter the narrow body segment.
