Unit Production


Forecast International's Aviation Gas Turbine Forecast provides detailed coverage of all major civil and military engine programs throughout the world. Turbofan, turboshaft, and turboprop engines are all featured, making this volume the ultimate resource on the full expanse of this market. Various submarkets are featured as well, including engines used on airline and military transports, business jets, rotorcraft, fighters, regional transports, and missiles/drones/UAVs. Completing the service are seven appendices that provide consolidated production statistics, 10 years of historical production for aftermarket evaluation, and a directory of aviation gas turbine manufacturers and packagers, among other pertinent data.

Sales Values

Note: The above graph refers only to steam turbines used in conjunction with gas turbines in co-generation applications. It is entirely possible that we may have missed some likely co-gen applications, as inevitably happens. Further, there are many pure steam installations which will continue to operate independently, with other heat sources.

Gas Turbines Dominate U.S. Navy Shipbuilding Plans

Gas turbines will dominate U.S. Navy warship construction during the 2017 – 2021 building plan. Every class of warship being built during this period will use gas turbines as their primary propulsion machinery. In addition, the ships will carry gas turbines auxiliary power units that will provide the electricity needed to operate their weapons and sensors. For main high speed propulsion the General Electric's LM2500, will power the DDG 51 Arleigh Burke Class Destroyers and the LCS1 Freedom Class Frigates. Gas turbines are also making inroads into the amphibious warfare fleet. The new LCAC 100 Ship-to-Shore connectors will be powered by Rolls Royce MT-7 gas turbines, nominal 7,000 shp , while the LHA-6 America Class Helicopter Carriers will rely on the well proven LM2500. However, General Electric should not rest upon its laurels, since the new LCS 2 Independence Class Frigates will use the new, more poweful Rolls Royce MT-30 (48,276 SHP) which will open the possibility of a challenge to the LM2500 for future construction. For full clarity in reading the pie chart, the Rolls-Royce AE1107 family includes the MT-7, while the Trent is the MT-30.
