The growing number of wildfires is expected to propel the growth of the firefighting aircraft market going forward. A wildfire refers to an unplanned fire that fires in natural areas such as forests or grassland. Wildfires are caused by human activity or a natural phenomenon such as lightning, and they can happen at any time or anywhere. Firefighting aircraft are used to stop the spread of fire in the forests and minimize the damage. As a result, a growing number of wildfires will increase the demand for firefighting aircraft.

For instance, according to BBC News, a UK-based broadcasting company, in January 2020 more than 50 fires have raged throughout the states of New South Wales and Victoria, destroying 11 million hectares of forest. This wildfire has destroyed over 2000 homes. When compared with previous years climate damage increased to 20% for the year 2020. Therefore, the growing number of wildfires is driving the growth of the firefighting aircraft market.

New product innovations have emerged as the key trend gaining popularity in the firefighting aircraft market. Major companies operating in the firefighting aircraft market are focused on new product innovations to meet consumer demand. For instance, in August 2020 Arcus Fire, a US-based company that manufactures firefighting aircraft launched a new firefighting aircraft called F- 45 turboprop based on prototype technology.
