Aircraft Communication System Market size will undergo noticeable growth owing to increasing demand of aircrafts for commercial and military applications. Growing numbers of passengers & frequent air travelers are key factor propelling the demand of new passenger carriers.

Increasing need for operation efficiency and flight safety drives demand for better communication system. Reliable communication essential for better operation to reduce delay time and achieve customer satisfaction will drive the demand for aircraft communication system market during the forecast period.  Airlines replacing aging fleet with modern, fuel efficient airplanes will propel aircraft communication system market.

Technological advancement in communication and navigational support devices will fuel the product demand. Moreover, increasing electronic systems in airplane will support the industry growth.

Increasing backlog for Boeing and Airbus indicates increasing demand from commercial aviation industry. Increasing air travelers and subsequent rise in air traffic creates demand of new airplane deliveries across the world. New airplanes construction and need for effective communication system will increase the industry revenue during forecast period.

Aircraft communication system with several electronic components increases the complexity of operation. Complex system and operational vulnerability associated with electronic components will limit the industry growth. Moreover, limited availability of radio spectrum may also hamper the demand.

Manufacturers of aircraft communication systems have growth opportunities in increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Proliferating UAV demand for agriculture, commercial use provides opportunities for new entrants as well as present participants.

High capital requirement for system development and long payment clearance period by jet manufacturers increase the entry barriers for the companies. Reducing system failure during pick hours are major challenge before the industry players.

Based on product, aircraft communication system market is categorized as satellite communication (SATCOM), high frequency communication (HF), very high frequency communication (VHF), ultra high frequency communication, data link communication. SATCOM will exhibit significant growth rate owing to reliable communication through satellite. VHF segment demand will be supported by long range communication requirements. Also, better signal quality and reduced effect of atmospheric conditions for high frequency will stimulate the industry demand.

Increasing use of digital data link for communication between pilot and traffic controls for flight control, whether update and flight reroute will drive the segment demand during forecast period. Data link systems providing safety with better understanding of complex routes on digital display in cockpit will support the segment growth.

Based on component, the market is divided in to antenna, transponder, receiver, transmitter, transceiver, and display & processor. Transponder will dominate the overall market owing to increasing usage in various airplanes for effective traffic control. Multi-functional transponders such as wider frequency transponders also provide distance measurement will support the segment growth. Demand for high technology product will increase revenue from transmitter & receivers used in aircraft communication systems.

Based on aircraft, the market is categorized in to commercial and military aircraft. Rise in intra-regional air routes and affordable flight fares increase the air traffic globally. Increasing demand for low cost carriers (LCC) across the globe will stimulate the demand for cost effective, efficient communication systems. Increasing defense spending in fleet upgradation in major countries will support the industry growth in military segment.

Based on distribution channel, the industry consists of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket. OEM contributes highest to the overall revenue and is expected to account for maximum share during the forecast period. Aircraft communication systems are installed prior to plane delivery to airlines and installation is done by OEMs.

Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate overall industry growth owing to rise in air travelers across the region. Increasing disposable income in middle class population led to rise in air travel which will propel the demand. Countries such as China, Russia, Saudi, Arabia expanding defense budget on military jets will boost the demand.

North America aircraft communication system market demand is driven by high passenger density, advanced technology and high military spending.  

Companies operating in aircraft communication system market are Iridium, L3, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Honeywell, Harris, Cob ham, United technology corporation, Raytheon, Rockwell Collins and Honeywell. Companies focus on new product development and increasing system efficiency to increase their revenue. OEMs look for long term contracts with airlines and works on customer satisfaction for business growth.
