Aircraft Cabin Interiors Market Size is estimated to grow at a significant rate during 2022 to 2028 due to the growing aerospace and aircraft business, increasing disposable incomes, and growing inclination of people to opt for luxury transportation. Besides, rising air traffic worldwide would further stimulate market forecast over 2022-2028. According to ICAO report, air passenger traffic rose to 4.9% in 2019.
Furthermore, various airlines are concerned about improving the customer experience and investing in upgrading the current aircraft fleets, thereby augmenting the overall share of the aircraft cabin interiors market.
Cabin interiors of aircraft must be designed and produced to be attractive and comfortable for passengers, while at the same time being lightweight to reduce the fuel consumption per flight. The materials used for these should also promote passenger safety and well-being enabling various aerospace solutions providers to deliver innovative offerings to the public. For instance, in 2020, 3M partnered with Safran Cabin to develop and create safer and cleaner aircraft interiors. The former company’s technology would enhance cleaning and protection elements of aircraft cabin equipment with the aim of improving the removal of viruses and bacteria like the COVID-19.
Factors like growing demand for certifications and regulatory frameworks for operating in-flight entertainment in aircraft and high production cost and raw material cost are likely to hamper the growth of market over the analysis period.
However, an upsurge in the demand for advanced aircraft systems and components like LED cabin lights, comfortable lightweight cushion structures, and wireless in-flight entertainment connectivity and systems would create ample growth opportunities for market expansion through 2028.
Based on the type, the lavatory segment is expected to showcase remunerative growth in the overall aircraft cabin interiors market through the forthcoming years. For aircraft passengers, lavatories are considered to be the only private space in the cabin, which enables various aircraft solutions providers to focus on the importance of delivering functionality and comfort to cabin passengers during long flights, by developing some of the technologically advanced lavatory solutions. In early 2020, Acumen Design Associates, in partnership with ST Engineering announced developing ACCESS- the world’s first extending aircraft lavatory. The innovation is expected to improve the flying experience on aircraft for passengers with reduced agility.
In terms of the aircraft type, business jets are projected to observe considerable demand for aesthetically advanced aircraft cabin interiors. The growth in the segment would come from the mounting business tourism and an increasing number of business travelers worldwide.
Geographically, the growth in Asia Pacific aircraft cabin interiors market share is anticipated to come from the rising demand for commercial aircraft across various developing economies, including China, India, Japan, and others. Moreover, growing air traffic across these countries is poised to further augment the growth statistics of Asia Pacific market over 2022-2028.
Key market players operating in the global aircraft cabin interior industry include Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic Corporation of North America), United Technologies Corporation, Cobham Plc, Diehl Stiftung & Co. KG (Diehl Verwaltungs-Stiftung), Zodiac Aerospace (Safran), and Honeywell International (US), amongst others.
These companies are engaged in strategic marketing initiatives like mergers and acquisitions, product launches, and partnerships to fortify their position in the overall market space.
The coronavirus pandemic had in 2020 severely affected the aviation industry owing to the lockdown norms and movement restrictions put forth by various central and state governments. This has also had a negative influence on the overall market expansion due to reduced passenger travel. According to the UN statistics, airplane passenger numbers dropped down by 60% in 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 infection spread, impacting the overall aircraft cabin market interior business valuation.
