Key Market Trends

General Aviation Segment to Record the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

The general aviation segment is growing fast, and the operations of business jets have increased primarily in the emerging economies, like India, China, Brazil, and Russia. Unlike commercial aircraft operated by airlines, business jets and charter jets operate without a schedule and sometimes even in low visibility conditions. Thus, there is a necessity for general aviation aircraft to incorporate more systems that gather flight navigation information. In general aviation, synthetic vision systems come preinstalled in most of the new aircraft. Shipments of general aviation are growing constantly. Almost 2,443 general aviation aircraft shipments were done in 2018, globally, indicating an increase of over 5%, when compared to that of 2017. Most of the general aviation aircraft come with synthetic vision systems, and the ones that do not come with inbuilt ones are now being upgraded, thereby, driving the share of the segment.

Asia-Pacific to be the Fastest Growing Segment in the Years to Come

North America is a major market for aircraft synthetic vision systems, due to the regulations that necessitate airlines and aircraft owners to deploy these systems in their aircraft. Procurements of new aircraft and the presence of a large number of aircraft that use these systems are also reasons for the high market share of North America. The commercial aircraft fleet in the United States is around 7,400, which is about 2.8% more than that in 2017. Thus, the increased number of aircraft in the United States is one of the main reasons for the high market share of North America. However, the market has begun to saturate in North America, and the Asia-Pacific market is expected to rapidly grow during the forecast period. Countries, like China, India, Japan, and South Korea, are contributing majorly in this region, with both China and India procuring aircraft on large scales. China estimates that the number of aircraft may surpass 5,000 by 2020, and the country is expected to become the largest aviation market by 2023. The aviation industry is also growing at a great pace in India, and many aircraft procurement plans are underway in the country. Indian carriers plan to increase their fleet size to 800 aircraft by 2020.  On account of all these factors, Asia-Pacific, on a whole, is projected to show high growth in the future.

Competitive Landscape

Major players in the aircraft synthetic vision systems market are Cobham PLC, Garmin Ltd, Honeywell International Inc., Thales Group, and Collins Aerospace (United Technologies Corporation). As synthetic vision systems (SVSs) become more mainstream, players in the market are refining their products to appeal to a broader range of customers. Along with general aviation operators, key targets of the players include the rotorcraft and commercial aviation markets. However, for commercial and general aviation, in addition to providing situational awareness, players must also provide systems, keeping in mind the potential for economic returns in using synthetic vision systems. The systems must be such that there will be less need for frequent upgrades and maintenance, which may attract new customers for players, thereby, helping them gain higher market shares.
