Market Overview

The commercial aircraft avionics market is anticipated to register a CAGR of above 6% during the forecast period.

  • The commercial aircraft avionics market is primarily dependent on the demand for new aircraft and upgrades of avionics for the existing aircraft.
  • According to the FAA, any aircraft flying in the US airspace requires the use of a transponder and may also need the aircraft to be equipped with a Version 2 ADS-B Out system before January 1, 2020. ADS-B is expected to be mandated in Europe in the coming years. These mandates are currently driving the demand for avionics upgrades.
  • The delays in supply chains may challenge the market players and may act as a hindrance factor to the commercial aircraft avionics market.

Scope of the Report

The study includes commercial aircraft used for passenger transport on a scheduled basis. Commercial aircraft used for freight are excluded from the study. Military aircraft, business jets, and other private-owned, chartered, and unscheduled aircraft are also excluded from the study. In segmentation by subsystems, other subsystems segment include emergency systems, fire safety systems, EFBs, flight recording systems, weather systems, and terrain awareness and warning systems.

Key Market Trends

The Narrow-body Segment is Expected to Experience the Highest Growth

The narrow-body aircraft have been the most delivered aircraft over the years. The aerospace giants, The Boeing Company and Airbus SE delivered 580 and 646 narrow-body aircraft in 2018. The growing aviation industry fuels the increasing orders and deliveries of the narrow-body. For instance, currently, Vietnam Airlines is in plans to replace its existing fleet of older Airbus A321s with new generation narrow-body aircraft. The state-owned flag carrier is planning to procure about 50-100 aircraft with expected deliveries between 2020 and 2030. It is currently reviewing its options between Airbus A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX. Increasing orders of new aircraft may generate demand for advanced avionics systems in the coming years.

The Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to Experience the Highest Growth

The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to have the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the fast-growing aviation industry in China and India. Additionally, countries like Indonesia, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, and Vietnam, are witnessing growth due to the on-going investments in the aviation industry by public and private companies and the growth of tourism in this region. Currently, Thai Airways is considering the purchase of 23 new aircraft to replace the decommissioned ones. It is expected to purchase 13 widebody aircraft and ten narrow-body aircraft. Thai Airways is eyeing Boeing 777X and A350XWB aircraft for its future widebody fleet. Such procurements and the rise of new maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facilities to cater to the growing aircraft fleet are expected to generate the demand for avionics systems and components in the region.

Competitive Landscape

The commercial aircraft avionics market is highly consolidated, with the majority of the share occupied by very few players. Collins Aerospace (United Technologies Corporation), Honeywell International Inc., Thales Group, General Electric Company, and Cobham PLC are some of the key players in the market. However, the other global and regional players that provide connectivity solutions, gauges and indicators, GPS, jammers, and other control systems for various flight activities occupy a significant part of the retrofit segment of the market. Acquisitions of such smaller players can help the larger companies quickly gain a lot of ground in the commercial aircraft avionics market.
