September 1, 2022 – TheNewswire - Electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) aircrafts are gaining immense popularity. Customers and investors alike are looking for cleaner and more environmentally friendly ways to travel in the future.
Urban air mobility offers the solution as these electric aircrafts have the ability to take off and land in small spaces, are relatively cheaper to operate, and allow consumers to avoid congested vehicle traffic on the ground. The best factor is that eVTOL aircrafts operate on batteries, which make them carbon neutral.
Morgan Stanley analysts have suggested that the eVTOL market could be valued at more than $1 trillion by 2040 and as much as $9 trillion by 2050. The firm has also said that eVTOL can serve a wide range of markets, ranging from passenger travel to military applications to freight transportation.
Here are five eVTOL companies to keep your eye on in 2022:
1. Joby Aviation ($JOBY)
Joby Aviation is a California-based transportation company developing an all-electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, which it intends to operate as part of a fast, quiet, and convenient service in cities around the world.
The company recently announced an expansion of its existing contract with the U.S. Air Force’s Agility Prime program that increases the contract’s potential value by more than $45 million. The contract also widens the Company’s defense partnerships to include the U.S. Marine Corps, which will participate in government-directed flight tests and use case exploration.
Joby’s engagement with government partners will bolster the Company’s primary goal of launching a commercial passenger service by providing access to testing facilities, early operational experience for government customers, and a partial offset to the company’s research and development costs.

2. Eve Holding ($EVEX)
With a more than 50-year history of aerospace expertise, Eve Holding is taking a holistic approach to progressing the urban air mobility ecosystem. The company possesses an advanced eVTOL project, comprehensive global services and support network, and a unique air traffic management solution.
Eve Holding plans to conduct its first North American urban air mobility simulation using helicopters powered by Blade Air Mobility (NASDAQ listed: BLDE), as a substitute for an eVTOL. The company aims to study operations, ground services, passenger journeys and eVTOL operator needs, creating more accessible and faster connections through downtown Chicago. The company will conduct its Chicago UAM simulation over a period of three weeks, starting with ground tests and passenger flights.
