AirMobility Inc. (Minato-ku, Tokyo; President ＆ CEO: Hisashi Asai) has launched the service of “AeroMall” (https://aeromall.jp) the world’s first e-commerce website dedicated to eVTOL (Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing) and Drone.
The global eVTOL/Drone aircraft market is expected to reach $30 billion by 2030, and global eVTOL/Drone manufacturers are facing hard competition. The 400 eVTOL/Drone manufacturers worldwide have a strong interest in Japanese parts, which have a proven track record in automotive and aerospace industries, while Japanese parts suppliers are seeking opportunity to enter into this huge market. However, access to Japanese parts suppliers is limited for overseas eVTOL/Drone manufacturers and it is not always easy for Japanese parts manufacturers to contact overseas eVTOL/Drone manufacturers. As such, expectations for a matching service to bring the two together have been growing.
Through the “AeroMall” (https://aeromall.jp), overseas eVTOL/Drone manufacturers can search for parts suppliers that develop and manufacture the parts they need and place orders. “AeroMall” also allows parts suppliers who receive technical inquiries from eVTOL/Drone manufacturers to develop products with bespoke specifications. In addition, “AeroMall” provides support for secure trade control, insurance, and other services to ensure smooth, safe and reliable business up to the delivery of goods.

■Comment from eVTOL/Drone Manufacturer
“Japanese parts manufacturers enjoy a good reputation in the automotive and aerospace industries and have the potential to make success of the eVTOL/Drone industries. However, it is difficult for eVTOL/Drone manufacturers outside Japan to find good Japanese suppliers. “AeroMall” will enable us to easily contact good Japanese suppliers. I believe “AeroMall” will help us accelerate the growth of the industry.”
