Total Addressable Market


The new and developing electric vertical and take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) aircraft market has been made possible by a convergence of innovation across battery technology, lightweight materials, sensors, and computing power and propulsion technology. As of 2021, Morgan Stanley has projected that the eVTOL aircraft market could represent $255 billion (in the base case) in revenues by 2035 and $1.0 trillion (in the base case) by 2040. Morgan Stanley further projects that the eVTOL aircraft market could represent almost $4.5 trillion in revenues in the bull case by 2040. According to our internal projections, we estimate that by 2035 there will be 42,000 eVTOL aircraft in operation globally, with the European market expected to account for demand of around 9,200 eVTOL aircraft through 2035, based upon, among other factors, industry publications and related projections, historical growth rates of the automotive, aviation and rail transportation segments, the proportions of the foregoing segments that involve trips of less than 250 km and other market research performed by Lilium N.V. (“Lilium”). By 2035, Lilium estimates the total global demand for eVTOL aircraft could be in the range of 5,000 to 10,000 aircraft annually.
