Market Overview

The cabin interior composites market is poised to register a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period, 2020-2025. The use of composites and other advanced materials in cabin designing has led to radical changes in aircraft designs. Their inherently high strength-to-weight ratio has resulted in significant weight savings, thereby, enhancing the fuel efficiency of the aircraft.

  • The overall market growth is an outcome of the organic growth of the aviation industry, as large numbers of aircraft deliveries scheduled during the forecast period will promote the use of composites for designing the aircraft cabin and drive the integrated efforts of both aircraft OEMs and aftermarket cabin integrators.  
  • Emerging technologies, such as automated fiber placement (AFP) techniques, are enhancing the scope of integrating advanced materials into sophisticated cabin interior designs, while also reducing the aircraft's turnaround time (TAT). 


Scope of the Report

To provide a comprehensive qualitative outlook, the cabin interior composites market considers the different players that offer either or all of the following aircraft cabin components: floor, sidewalls and ceiling panels, lavatory panels, overhead stowage bins, seat back-panel, ducts, and others.

The scope of the study does not include military and general aviation aircraft. The market estimates are inclusive of both the linefit and retrofit aspects of the cabin interior composite market. The dominant market players have been selected, based on their association with prominent commercial aircraft programs.

Key Market Trends

Increase in Passenger Traffic Resulting in New Aircraft Procurement and Cabin Retrofitting

The 38.88% increase in global passenger traffic between 2013 and 2018 has driven the airline operators to initiate procurement drives and place firm orders for new-generation aircraft. In 2018, around 1,830 commercial aircraft were delivered to several airline operators across the world. Besides, there is a stark contrast between the preference for a full-scale carrier (FSC) and a low-cost carrier (LCC). FSCs, including premium airlines and business jet operators, target high-end customers who prefer comfort to cost, whereas LCCs prefer cabin designs that can accommodate maximum seats to generate higher revenues per trip. However, since both FSCs and LCCs are keen on preserving brand value, while maximizing returns, the selection of an optimal cabin interior that offers weight savings without compromising on aesthetics is vital for the operators. Thus, the cabin designers are adopting the use of composites for designing several components of an aircraft cabin, thereby, fostering the organic growth of the market.

Favorable Market Outlook in the Asia-Pacific Region

By 2025, China is forecast to become the world's largest aviation market, in terms of air traffic. India is forecast to become the world's third-largest aviation market, while other countries, such as Indonesia and Thailand, are forecast to enter the top 10 global markets. The regional aviation manufacturing infrastructure is supported by lower production costs, driving the major aircraft OEMs to establish their manufacturing hubs in the region. For instance, Airbus has entrenched industrial partnerships with more than 600 firms in 15 countries in the region, for ensuring the supply of parts for Airbus aircraft. The growth in the regional aircraft production capacity has also driven the cabin designers and aftermarket integrators to develop advanced cabin layouts, suitable for specific aircraft models. In May 2019, Lufthansa Technik developed a VIP cabin interior concept for the A220. The SkyRetreat cabin layout is a discrete integration of the latest cabin technologies, including 4K roll-up displays, smart touch surfaces, and a unique observation lounge. Furthermore, new airlines are adopting modern cabin layouts to attract potential customer bases, by offering luxurious amenities, designs, and other offerings at a competitive price range. For instance, the cabin interior of the upcoming Taiwanese FSC Starlux has been designed by BMW Group Designworks. Such partnerships are expected to drive the business prospects of the aftermarket players during the forecast period.  

Global Cabin Interior Composites Market

Competitive Landscape

An increasing number of airline operators are investing in optimizing passenger comfort, by integrating larger overhead bins, designer floors, ceiling panels, and modern seat-backs with provisions for integrating sophisticated entertainment systems. This has necessitated the collaboration between aircraft OEMs and tier-I cabin interior designers to develop advanced, light-weight cabin interior systems. It is highly advantageous to use composites in aircraft cabin construction, owing to their high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, and durability. The fuel savings, on account of lower weight profiles, are creating significant opportunities for the market players, especially in the cabin up-gradation programs of first-class and business class cabins of FSCs.  

The leading market players, such as AIM Altitude Limited (AVIC), Collins Aerospace (United Technologies Corporation), Diehl Stiftung & Co. KG, FACC AG, JAMCO Corporation, Triumph Group Inc., Safran SA, and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd, combine customer-specific design processes with their extensive knowledge of composite structures, value engineering techniques, and design automation expertise, to design cost-effective next-generation composites, based on the aircraft cabin components.
