Report Overview

The global aircraft cabin interior market size was valued at USD 22.88 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% from 2023 to 2030. The expansion of the market is primarily attributed to the increasing global preference for air travel, with developing regions experiencing robust growth due to the growing popularity and accessibility of domestic flights. The continuous evolution of aircraft interiors to enhance passenger experiences has fueled the demand of the market.

U.S. aircraft cabin interior market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market, leading to reduced demand as travel restrictions and lockdowns disrupted air travel globally. Airlines faced financial challenges due to decreased passenger numbers and operational constraints, causing a decline in new aircraft orders and retrofits. As a result, manufacturers and suppliers experienced supply chain disruptions and reduced revenues. However, with the gradual easing of restrictions and the resurgence of air travel, the market is now in a phase of recovery and adaptation, with a focus on implementing health and safety measures, enhancing passenger comfort, and accommodating evolving travel preferences.

Aircraft cabin interior is an important aspect for passenger experience both for international and regional flights. Therefore, the market players’ expansion of portfolio offerings and enhanced aftersales services creates demand in aircraft cabin interiors market. The aftermarket has evolved and has created aftermarket cabin upgrade offerings. For instance, in December 2022, AeroVisto and VARTAN.AERO GmbH partnered to launch 360°CabinService. The 360°CabinService offers a full package for interior refurbishment. It covers the complete process, including cabin disassembly, outgoing inspection, packaging and transportation, interior refurbishment, return transportation and unpacking, incoming inspection, reassembly, quality assessment, and final handover of the aircraft cabin. Such developments by key players is expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the rise in aircraft deliveries during the forecast period is poised to drive down the demand for aircraft cabin interior markets. For instance, Boeing’s commercial market outlook predicts the replacement of around 50% of the current fleet over the next two decades. This anticipated surge in replacements and upgrades is expected to fuel the demand for cabin interior solutions, thereby propelling the market growth.

Moreover, the rise in air traffic opens doors for significant market opportunities for major industry players. For instance, at the AIX international aviation trade fair, FACC AG showcased a next-generation cabin designed to prioritize passenger preferences and the utilization of eco-friendly materials. This emphasis on upgrading cabin interior designs to enhance user experience and incorporate sustainable materials is anticipated to generate market demand over the forecast period.

Type Insights

Furthermore, as the embrace of entertainment and connectivity continues to broaden to meet the growing demand for enhanced leisure experiences, the market is expected to grow over the forecast period.

The galley segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of nearby 12% from 2023 to 2030. This is attributed to the growing necessity to cater to passengers' food and beverage needs. Additionally, the introduction of an array of in-flight food and beverage services is propelling the growth of the galley segment over the forecast period.

Material Insights

The alloy segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 56% in 2022 and is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. This is attributed to alloys' ability to meet the aviation industry's demand for lightweight yet robust materials, aligning with the industry's focus on fuel efficiency and sustainability. As airlines prioritize passenger comfort and safety, alloys find application in seats, panels, and frames, reflecting the market's pursuit of advanced and well-balanced cabin interior solutions.

The others segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of more than 11% from 2023 to 2030. The increased use of phenolic resins reinforced with glass or carbon are used for interior structures such as ceiling and sidewalls. Furthermore, the emphasis on reducing aircraft weight while maintaining structural integrity aligns with the overarching trend towards sustainable and performance-driven cabin interior solutions is propelling the market demand over the forecast period.

End-user Insights

The aftermarket segment registered the largest share of over 57% in 2022. This segment encompasses flight interior upgrades and MRO services provided by third-party entities or OEM players. This trend is propelled by the global commercial airplane fleet, necessitating regular maintenance, repair, and overhaul activities. Moreover, the aftermarket services industry is strengthened by market players introducing unique and captivating cabin interior designs. For instance, Emirates' decision to upgrade the cabin interior of their complete fleet of approximately 120 A320 and B777 aircraft shows this the escalating demand for aftermarket services.

Aircraft Type Insights

The narrow body aircraft segment accounted for the largest market share of over 59% in 2022. The narrow-body aircraft category is foreseen to be one of the most sought-after aircraft types. The dominance of narrow-body aircraft is attributed to the surge in domestic air traffic worldwide. The combination of air travel's convenience and budget-friendly fares, arising from heightened competition among domestic airlines, is anticipated to fuel the escalating demand for narrow-body aircraft.

The wide body aircraft segment expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030. The increase in international air travel traffic flow catalyzes the demand for wide body aircraft. The corporate sector's need for international travel, coupled with an expanding business workforce, has propelled market growth. Furthermore, the tourism industry's surge, driven by consumer preferences for international destinations, has further amplified the demand for international travel. Therefore, the boost in international air passengers due to corporate work, businesses, tourism among others has created demand for wide body aircrafts.

Regional Insights

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest market share of over 33% in 2022. Emerging economies like India and Southeast Asian countries hold substantial potential for expanding passenger aircraft presence, driven by the growing inclination towards flight travel. For instance, Boeing, an aircraft manufacturer, forecasts a rapid air traffic growth rate of 6.9% for India, followed by Southeast Asia with 5.5%.

The Middle East & Africa region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of around 8% over the forecast period. The demand for commercial planes in the Middle East region is expected to drive market growth in the region. Recently, Boeing in their 2022 commercial outlook report has predicted that the region is expected to more than double their aircraft fleet by 2041. Furthermore, as per the 2022 Boeing CMO African region is expected to witness air passenger traffic growth by 5,4 % annually. Therefore, the demand for new airplanes in Africa is expected to boost the market growth.
