Shin said that, aircraft industry projections show that there is going to be a huge expansion of eVTOL aircraft as an alternative to taxis in the future. And to accomplish this, there is going to be a need for a large number of aircraft in the market, whereas at present the number of global commercial aircraft does not exceed 30,000 units.
