Market Overview

The military aircraft digital glass cockpit systems market is anticipated to register a CAGR of more than 3% during the forecast period, 2020 - 2025.

  • The increasing number of cockpit upgrades to the existing military aircraft fleet is likely to remain as the key growth driver for the market during the forecast period.
  • Cockpit technology has been advancing at a great pace in the last five years, which helps to provide a great amount of information at the fingertips of the pilot than it was formerly in the conventional systems. These newer technologies are expected to provide opportunities for the growth of the market in the years to come.

Scope of the Report

Digital glass cockpit systems are also known as electronic flight information systems (EFIS) or cockpit display system (CDS). The systems consist of digital flight instrument displays, which are mostly large LCD screens. Digital glass cockpit systems use different displays driven by flight management systems, which can be adjusted to display the information regarding various aspects of the flight as required by the pilot.

Key Market Trends

Helicopter Segment to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period

The designs of the military helicopter have seen a drastic change over the past few years. Most advanced high-tech machines and digital glass cockpit systems are incorporated into the helicopters to enhance their effectiveness. Currently, many helicopter avionics modernization and upgrade projects are being taken up around the world. The glass cockpit systems provide a sophisticated real-time operating system with the latest processor technology that provides situational awareness for the pilots operating these helicopters. The avionics for the helicopters vary a lot compared to fixed-wing aircraft, and the cockpit sophistication requirements are also high, especially in military applications. Hence, this segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

North America Dominated in Terms of Market Share in 2019

As of 2019, North America had the highest market share out of all the regions. This was mainly due to the procurement and modernization plans of the US Department of Defense. The country currently has plans to procure F-35A Joint Strike Fighters, light attack aircraft, and trainer aircraft and also, to modernize its fleet of the B-1, B-52H, and B-2 aircraft. Such investments in the aircraft fleet will propel the growth of this region during the forecast period. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register a high CAGR, due to the increased procurements of aircraft and rotorcraft by countries, like India, Japan, Indonesia, and South Korea, among others. Also, fleet modernization plans in China and India will further drive the growth of the market.
