Key Market Trends

Combat Aircraft Segment Projected to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period

The combat aircraft segment held the largest market share in 2019 and is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Combat aircraft are vital assets for the militaries of all the countries. With the growing terror threats and political tensions among the nations, the focus has been shifted towards the modernization of fleet by replacing aging aircraft with new advanced combat aircraft. Technology advancements in stealth and precision weapons are further forcing the countries to procure new combat aircraft, since, every nation want their combat capabilities to be up-to-date. Newer generation combat jets are capable of multi-role abilities and have larger payload carrying capacities with stealth features, and hence their procurement is increasing. For instance, India is currently procuring Dassault's 36 Rafale aircraft in which 28 aircraft are single-seater jets and 8 aircraft are twin seaters for training. The Rafale jets are fitted with Martin-Baker Mk F16F ejection seat. Thus, the growth in the procurement of combat aircraft will propel the demand for combat aircraft ejection seats.

North America Held the Largest Market Share in 2019

North America held the largest share in the aircraft ejection seat market in 2019. The US Department of Defense is focusing on modernizing its fighter aircraft fleet. Additionally, the USAF (the United States Air Force) plans to increase its fighter aircraft squadron from 55 to 65 in the coming years, in order to deal with the growing military might of its potential adversaries. Under the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program, the US Department of Defense (DOD) has plans to acquire more than 2,400 new generation F-35s. Of the total acquisition, more than 1,700 aircraft will be F-35A variant. The F-35A is expected to replace the older F-16 and the F-15 fighter aircraft that are in service with the US. Martin-Baker supplies the Mk16 - US16E ejection seats for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. Likewise, the US Air Force awarded Boeing Defense a contract worth USD 9.2 billion for the production of 351 T-X trainer jets (T-7 Red Hawk), with deliveries expected to start during the forecast period. Such procurement of new aircraft will simultaneously generate demand for aircraft ejection seats in the US.
