Ice and rain protection system are the systems that are designed to keep atmospheric ice and rain from gathering on aircraft surfaces like propellers, wings, engine intakes, environmental control intakes and rotor blades. The performance, handling and controlling of the aircraft will degrade if ice are allowed to gather on the surface of the flight control surfaces and airfoils. The accumulation is likely to increase aerodynamic drag and reduces aerodynamic lift.
The global aerospace and defense ice and rain protection system market is primarily driven by the increasing safety regulations authorized by the regulatory bodies. Since ice and rain creates risk in operation of aircraft, different safety regulations are implemented by the government as well as the regulatory bodies to ensure the safety of the aircraft as well as the passengers.

Deicing is an important approach where snow, ice and frost are removed from a surface through certain chemicals and infrared heating. The de-icing fluid comprises propylene glycol and additives that are used for the de-icing process. In the infrared heating process, the heat transfer mechanism is significantly faster comparing to conventional de-icing used in conventional heat transfer modes. This is due to the cooling effect of the air on the deicing fluid spray.
Some of the key trends in the global aerospace and defense ice and rain protection system market are the optimization use of anti-icing and de-icing fluids and development of environment friendly de-icing systems.

Expansion and modernization of the existing airports is also one of the important factors bolstering the demand of the aerospace and defense ice and rain protection system market during the forecast period. Implementation of advanced technology in the airports for ice and rain protection system helps in ensuring the safety. Extreme cold weather countries are also an important factor bolstering the demand of aerospace and defense ice and rain protection system market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. Since extreme cold countries need these systems to remove ice and rain water from the surface of the aircraft as well as form airports, they are fuelling the growth at a rapid pace.
