Aircraft Interface Devices Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI4941
Aircraft Interface Devices Market size is projected to grow with high demand for devices that resolve compatibility and system integration issues in today's modern connected aircraft. These devices are an essential part of several avionics upgrades such as in-flight entertainment & connectivity (IFEC) systems and electronic flight bags (EFB). These devices ensure high level functionality to cater to the evolving requirements of the modern airline industry. These solutions can be used for flight tracking and aircraft condition monitoring. Interface devices enable high-bandwidth, high speed data communication between the ground operations and the airplane. Fully connected airlines can utilize real-time data to improve passenger experience and flight deck operations.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic had a negative impact on the aircraft interface devices market in 2020 due to the stringent lockdown measures imposed by government organizations. Sharp decline in the number of domestic and international travels hampered the market growth in 2020. However, relaxations in lockdowns imposed, followed by the gradual rise in the airway passenger traffic will propel the demand for high-quality interface devices in 2021. As industries and manufacturing facilities have resumed normal operations, the market will regain traction in 2021. Players will focus on resuming the R&D operations to launch innovative solutions.
There will be high demand for interface devices from fixed wing aircraft for advanced data acquisition capabilities. Players are focusing on offering high performance interface devices for fixed wing aircraft. For instance, Astronics Corporation offers aircraft interface devices with built-in features such as Ethernet to serial bridge, 9-port Ethernet switch, and 8GB flash memory for fixed wing aircraft. Fixed wing aircraft is popular owing to enhanced aerodynamic performance with minimal influence of environmental conditions, making it suitable for use in a range of environments. There will be increasing demand for interface devices from these aircraft for implementing intelligent analytics.
Wireless interface devices will gain traction propelled by ongoing technological advancements in the telecom industry, enabling the development of high-quality wireless communication devices. Wireless communication has gained traction as it eliminates the hassle associated with the wear & tear of wires and their maintenance. Collins Aerospace offers Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Interface and Communication Unit (EICU) that combines the capabilities of avionics interface devices and traditional wireless data transfer with secure EFB and crew wireless access. Similarly, Honeywell International offers Aircraft Data Gateway that provides airlines a flexible and affordable way to wirelessly transfer data on and off their aircraft in real time. Increasing implementation of wireless systems in airlines will propel the aircraft interface devices market growth.
The rise of international tourism over the recent years has encouraged airline operators to modernize exiting fleets for improved passenger convenience and comfort. The aircraft interface devices market growth can be attributed to the high demand for these systems from the civil sector. Electronic flight bags ensure that pilots can access real time information and seamlessly connect to their operations centers. Players are launching high-performance solutions for the civil airline industry. For instance, Collins Aerospace leverages data & predictive analytics through its aircraft interface device and tablet interface module to empower pilots with actionable data.
The robust aviation industry in Europe will offer growth opportunities to the aircraft interface devices market. The Russian government is pursuing a USD 87.5 billion modernization plan to renovate the country’s airports, railways, highways, ports, and other transportation infrastructure through 2030. Government organizations in countries, such as Germany, France, and Italy, encourage heavy investments in the research & development associated with aircraft. They focus on strengthening the airline infrastructure to boost the economy’s competitiveness. The robust military aircraft industry in the region will propel the demand for interface device installations for military applications.
Players operating the aircraft interface devices market include Honeywell International Inc., Collins Aerospace, Sanmina Corporation, Skytrac Systems Ltd., Astronics Corporation, The Boeing Company, Thales Group, Teledyne Controls LLC, and Viasat Inc. Aircraft interface device manufacturers are focusing on offering innovative solutions to strengthen their market presence in the industry. For instance, in June 2019, Viasat Inc. collaborated with Teledyne Controls Inc. to offer connected flight deck services to commercial aviation clients. Teledyne’s avionics system coupled with Viasat's high-speed satellite connectivity system enables airlines to stream flight deck data in real-time, ensuring cost savings and operational efficiencies.
