Global commercial aviation aircraft cabin lighting industry is projected to see a steady growth on account of increasing LED technologies demand in aircraft. The market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 4% from 2016 to 2024.
The cabins are an essential part an airplane which carries passengers from starting point to the destination. Night travel at cruising altitudes requires adequate illumination for rendering passenger services.
It includes lighting which forms an important part of interior designing. A good lighting system provides pleasant travel experience and helps the passengers to undertake various leisure activities.
Increasing air traffic is expected to drive the global market demand over the forecast period. Emerging economies including India, Brazil and China have shown tremendous development in the aircraft industry.
There has been a rise in new airliners demand equipped with modern technologies and state of the art infrastructure. The service providers believe that interior designing is a crucial factor for higher customer satisfaction levels, and therefore works on innovative value added services.
A perfect luminous system helps in attracting customers and spread their goodwill in the market which in turn is expected to impact overall industry growth in near positively. New LED-based lighting systems have been introduced which provides pleasant interior atmosphere.
These panels consume low power. In addition, the LED-based systems are light in weight. Such factors coupled with continuous LED development are expected to drives the global aircraft cabin lighting market.
Trends have shown that in the recent years, companies have been replacing old incandescent bulbs with LED lights. Aircraft manufacturers are focusing on reducing aircraft weight. The weight reduction offers many benefits which include fuel cost.
Old illumination equipment consumes more power and therefore increasing overall operational cost. New systems consumer less power. Implementation of new lighting systems with low-mass is one of the strategies to reduce the overall vehicle weight which in turn is expected to enhance industry demand.
Moreover, these devices have a lifespan of approximately two years, which creates an up gradation need to deliver uninterrupted services. The aircraft carrier’s tendency to conduct upgradation activities is expected to enhance overall market growth.
Aircraft cabin lighting is used effectively by smart marketers to attract customers and create brand awareness. Television commercials and photographs used for advertisement purposes consist of new and shiny cockpits.
The colors used for brightening the cabin are in connection with the brand logo which helps in developing awareness. On an average, the life cycle of an aircraft carrier is around 25 years whereas lighting components last for a couple of years.
With new technologies, supplying elements of the same specification over the aircraft life span is a major challenge. The majority of the sales occur through the OEM market. Commercial aircraft manufacturing sector enjoys a duopoly with Boeing and Airbus as the leading players.
Their superior bargaining power is expected to hamper the global industry growth. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on generating revenues through collaboration with service providers.
These partnerships give them the responsibilities to undertake improvements and maintenance activities. Applications in the field of military provide significant opportunities for industry growth.
Along with commercial aircraft, these manufacturers provide solutions to military carriers as well. The global market is segmented by the application which includes wash lighting, reading lights, gallery lighting, lavatory lighting and crew lighting.
These systems work on both AC and DC power supply. It is important that all illumination forms complement the cabin interior and enhance the overall ambiance. Well-designed solutions provide passengers with the necessary comfort and required convenience.
North America was the primary market globally and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period on account of the developed commercial airline industry in the region. The presence of Boeing in the U.S is estimated to contribute majorly towards the increasing regional demand.
North America market was followed by Europe owing to the large airline service providers concentration. Asia-Pacific is projected to show an increasing growth mainly on account of emerging economies including India and China.
These countries have shown tremendous growth in aviation industry owing to privatization coupled with investment initiatives by the government. South America and Africa have witnessed a slow growth in the recent years and is expected to grow at significant CAGR on account of developing airline industry.
