Global Commercial Aircraft Lighting Market by Aircraft Type (NBA, WBA, and RTA), by Fit (Linefit and Retrofit), by Light Type (Interior and Exterior), by Technology (LED, OLED, Custom, and Traditional), and by Geography – Forecast To 2021

Commercial Aircraft Lighting Market – Overview

The Global Commercial Aircraft Lighting Market is growing with the rapid pace. According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, The global market of commercial aircraft lighting will grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period. The market is forecasted to witness slow but steady growth by 2021, which will be a surplus growth at a moderate CAGR during the projected period (2016 -2021).  

The high demand for aircraft lighting is due to the growth in the commercial aircraft. An aircraft are equipped with various types of light to improve visibility during flight.  Improved passenger experience as well as the growing demand for navigation technologies fuels the growth of the commercial aircraft lighting market. Moreover, rising disposable incomes and macroeconomic development will boosts the market growth. The increase in aircraft orders, growing passenger traffic, need for improved lighting systems for passenger experience are estimated to gain higher popularity during the forecast period. However, the cost associated with modern lighting systems, issues related to its fittings, and growing aircraft backlogs, issues related to its fittings, and growing aircraft backlogs acts as a barrier for the growth of commercial aircraft lighting market.

The commercial aircraft lighting market is completely dependent on the commercial aircraft. Thus, the increasing or decreasing demand of the commercial aircraft is directly has an impact on the market. The high purchasing power has eased travel in flight, due to which there has been a rise in the passenger traffic. Another factor responsible for the increase in commercial aircraft sale is the macroeconomic development and the rise in the global middle class consumers. This is the primary factor that drives the growth of the commercial aircraft lighting and has gained prevalence in the recent times, with growing passenger traffic and need for improved lighting systems for passenger experience. Thus, the growth of the commercial aircraft lighting market is expected to go hand in hand with the growth of commercial aircraft.

The aircraft industry as a whole is a capital intensive industry. The dynamic business environment and cut throat competition in the market constantly requires influx of capital to update their technology to cope with increasing passenger traffic. Development of new generation aircraft requires constant research & development support thus resulting in extensive capital investment at a constant rate. In the current scenario, manufacturers are pushing for such feature including navigation lights, anti-collision beacon lights, logo lights, wing lights, taxi lights, landing lights and runway turnoff lights in order to acquire a greater market share than their competitors.  Such cut throat competition in the aircraft industry requires massive investments at a regular basis, thus the high capital investment in the commercial aircraft lighting system.
