Aircraft Switches Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026

Report ID: GMI3476

Summary Methodology

Aircraft Switches Market size is set to grow substantially by 2025 owing to high use of computer assistance and automation in the sensor switches for measuring multiple parameters including pressure and temperature in the airplanes. These sensor switches assist to gather the data and operate accordingly based on the analysis of collected information. The increasing digitalization and improved electronics are boosting the aircraft switches market growth over the projected timeframe.

The increasing demand of in-flight entertainment & connectivity systems (IFEC) are providing a positive outlook for the aircraft switches market expansion. High-performance and reliable aviation switches find its application in the aircraft cockpit controls, infotainment switching, aircraft cockpit keyboards, instrument panel and overhead controls. Technological advancements leading to the IFEC upgradation including manual electromechanical switches will further enhance the market demand over the forecast timeline.

Based on application, the aircraft systems in the aircraft switches market share will register considerable growth owing to the multiple requirement of pneumatic and hydraulic control systems. Hydraulic systems are used in landing gear, thrust reversers, flaps and slats functions through several switches during vital aircraft operations. Emergency slides, doors and environmental control system comprises of pneumatic control systems and activated through switches, thereby supporting the aircraft switches demand over the study timeframe.

The aircraft switches market share based on type is segmented into manual and automatic switches. Manual will account for a significant share in the aircraft switches market size owing to the high usage in aircraft operations. These switches are electromechanically operated by electrical circuit activation based on human actions. Multiple types of manual switches including rocker, push, selector, and toggle are utilized based on the required switching action. Automatic segment will register considerable growth owing to its increasing applications in airplane electrical systems. These switches are embedded with sensors for instant activation during operational purposes that will further influence the industry share over the study period.

The fixed wing segment will witness substantial growth in the aircraft switches market owing to rising air travel supported by expanding travel routes and improving tourism industry. Rising number of aircraft deliveries owing to increasing air flight traffic will further influence the product size by 2025. The proliferating low cost carriers along with the launch of advanced new narrow body aircraft models are expected to boost the industry share.

Based on end-user, aftermarket will account for a significant aircraft switches market size owing to the requirement for scheduled maintenance, repair, and overhaul activities. Regulatory authorities mandate stringent procedures and laws for the passenger and airplane safety requirement, positively influencing the segment growth over the projected timeframe. The increasing air passenger traffic and flight itenaries along with the requirement for complying to the stringent norms for maintaining airworthiness are further driving the segment share.

Asia Pacific holds considerable share owing to the increasing demand of low-cost carriers across the region. Industry players are focusing on developing technologically advanced products for increasing their customer base. For instance, in April 2019, Curtiss-Wright announced the newest addition in the aircraft switch portfolio featuring DuraNET 3300 that is small form factor (SFF) network switch. It is a deployable ethernet switch embedded in SFF chassis that is ideal for installation in helicopters and fixed-wing aircrafts.

North America is expected to register strong growth in the aircraft switches market share due to increasing demand for aircrafts for supporting rising air passenger travel. Airplane manufacturers are focusing on expanding their product portfolio to cope up with the increasing customer demand. For instance, in June 2017, Airbus announced the addition of its A320 in the airplane portfolio of A330neo and A350 featuring enhanced, electronics, interiors, and enlarged cabin space. The increasing aircraft deliveries and orders will substantially result in the aircraft switches market growth in the region.

Industry participants are engaged in offering customers with intelligent solutions to cope with their requirement for improved operations. For instance, in July 2018, Defense Solutions division of Curtiss-Wright launched its VPX6-688 Gigabit Ethernet Switch module to provide system integrators with entirely featured switch solution. This switch solution assists in simplifying the integration of a complete networking into open architecture VPX systems. It also enables embedded systems to safely transfer the information in wide-area networks and intra-platforms supporting the aircraft switches product growth.
