Asian Sky Media (ASM) announces the release of the first Asia-Pacific Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Report. As the leader in reporting and anticipating trends in business and general aviation in the region, Asian Sky Media’s new publication delivers in-depth knowledge for the growing UAM market in Asia including Greater China. This is a first for Asia and sets the path for ASM’s future studies to examine global activity in UAM and the aviation industry of tomorrow.

The report comes straight after the February Singapore Air Show where the key theme dominating the biennial event was UAM, in particular, passenger eVTOLs –electric aircraft capable of taking off and landing vertically.

We expect the theme of UAM to dominate the news again at the HAI Heli-Expo 2022in Dallas this week. Investments made by traditional general aviation rms in UAM have rapidly risen due to the pressure to cut emissions and provide safer short-top transportation. The market size of UAM across the world in 2021 was estimated atUSD7.1 billion.

Our report looks at the various designs, market status, and specifications of the 14eVTOL manufacturers competing for market share amongst the Asia-Pacific OEMs.Notably, mainland China accounts for 57% of the OEMs – some being projects launched by large automobile companies, and others being pure-play startups. In-depth interviews are provided with some of the key players in the region, includingChina’s EHang and Japan’s SkyDrive, which give perspectives and insights into their future vision of the industry.

Our report supplements industry data with the first-ever Asia-Pacifc survey of nearly500 respondents within the business and general aviation community. Some of the key findings of the survey include:

  • Over a third of them remain unconvinced that UAM operations will be commercialized within the next 5 years.
  • Only 27% of respondents said they ‘fully trust’ regulatory authorities to market he right decisions.
  • Respondents ranked safety as their primary development requirement, whilst one of the biggest drivers for investment, environmental impact, came last.
  • 53% stated they would pay only up to 1.5 times for UAM journeys that were60% quicker than by ground.
  • Respondents from OEMs universally agree that the firrst real-world usage will be for Emergency Medical Services missions, with passenger transport, the ultimate market ranking last. This finding, despite the Asia-wide investments and promotions, focused on comfort and efficient transport for passengers.

The report also provides detailed proles for the countries seeing the biggest advances in UAM. This covers areas such as infrastructure readiness/ planning, regulatory status, operator services, and more. Look out for ASM’s 1st Asia-Pacfic UAM Report YE 2021 which will arrive on the 8th of March.
