The global commercial aircraft cabin lighting market is projected to see steady growth on account of increasing LED technology demand in aircraft.
The cabins are an essential part of an airplane that 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 design. A good lighting system provides a pleasant travel experience and helps the passengers to undertake various leisure activities.
Increasing air traffic is expected to drive the global commercial aircraft cabin lighting 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 work on innovative value-added services.
A perfect luminous system helps in attracting customers and spreading 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 provide a 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 drive the global commercial aircraft cabin lighting market.
Trends have shown that in 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 includes fuel cost.
Old illumination equipment consumes more power and therefore increases overall operational cost. New systems consume 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 upgradation need to deliver uninterrupted services. The aircraft carrier’s tendency to conduct upgradation activities is expected to enhance overall aircraft cabin lighting 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. The commercial aircraft manufacturing sector enjoys a duopoly with Boeing and Airbus as the leading players.
Their superior bargaining power is expected to hamper global industry growth. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on generating revenues through collaboration with service providers.
These partnerships give them the responsibility 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 commercial aircraft cabin lighting 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 provider's 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 the aviation industry owing to privatization coupled with investment initiatives by the government. South America and Africa have witnessed a slow growth in recent years and are expected to grow at a significant CAGR on account of the developing airline industry.
Key players in the global industry include Aerospace Optics, Airtechnics, Inc., Astronics Corp., Avtech Corp., B/E Aerospace, Bruce Aerospace Inc., Dallas Avionics, Inc., Day-Ray Products, Inc., DeVore Aviation Corp. of America and Diehl Luftfahrt Elektronik GmbH.
Other companies are Ducommun Technologies, Eaton Aerospace, Electro-Mech Components, Inc., Emteq, Endicott Research Group, Esterline Control Systems, Firan Technology Group, Goodrich, Heads Up Technologies, Honeywell, IDD Aerospace, Interface Displays & Controls, Luma Technologies, Page Aerospace, Panelight Components Group LLC, Precise Flight, Inc., Sirio Panel S.p.A, Spectralux, STG Aerospace, and Talon Aerospace.

The automotive & transportation industry is amongst the most exposed verticals to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and is currently amidst unprecedented uncertainty. COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the supply chain and product demand in the automotive sector. The industry's concern has moved on from being centered on supply chain disruption from China to the overall slump in demand for automotive products. The demand for commercial vehicles is expected to plummet with the shutdown of all non-essential services. Furthermore, changes in consumer buying behavior owing to uncertainty surrounding the pandemic may have serious implications on the near future growth of the industry. Meanwhile, liquidity shortfall and cash crunch have already impacted the sales of fleet operators, which is further expected to widen over the next few months. We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and assessing its impact on the growth of the automotive & transportation industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
