Aerospace Avionics Market

Rise in Production of Aircraft is Boosting the Market Growth

The increasing production of aircraft is driving advancements in avionics systems. This growth in aircraft manufacturing is fueling the demand for advanced avionics technologies, including precise navigation systems, enhanced communication systems, and overall performance upgrades.

The growing aircraft production and avionics development is shaping a dynamic business environment. For instance, in 2023, Boeing and Airbus collectively delivered 528 and 735 aircraft, respectively, surpassing their 2022 figures of 480 and 661 deliveries. Airbus reported record annual jet orders and confirmed an 11% increase in 2023 deliveries. Avionics innovators are continuously striving to introduce state-of-the-art solutions that meet the evolving needs of the modern aviation industry. This collaborative effort not only addresses current demands but also promotes ongoing enhancement and adaptation to emerging trends in the aerospace sector.

The aerospace avionics market is segmented into Sub-System, Fit, Platform and End-Use.

Aerospace Avionics Market by Sub-System

On the basis of subsystem, the market is bifurcated into flight management systems, flight control systems, health monitoring systems, electrical & emergency systems and communication, navigation, and surveillance systems.

The anticipated surge in aircraft deliveries in the forthcoming years, as manufacturers increase production rates and the international aviation sector continues its recovery from the pandemic, underscores the significance of this market. For instance, in June 2023 the Boeing official production rate of aircraft was 31 aircraft per month. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) forecasts that the number of air passengers will reach $4.7 billion in 2024, exceeding the 4.5 billion passengers in 2019, indicating a demand for new aircraft in the years ahead.

Aerospace Avionics Market by Fit

On the basis of fit, the market is classified into retrofit and forward fit.

High Initial Costs are Restricting the Market Growth

The aerospace avionics sector faces challenges to its avionics, with high implementation and maintenance costs posing barriers to market growth. The difficulties of managing the value chain are compounded by the low profit margins associated with installing expensive avionics systems. Additionally, the aerospace industry is fighting with the rising prices of fuel, further straining profitability and hindering investment in advanced avionics technologies.

In the aerospace sector, the initial cost of implementing networking technologies and connectivity hardware is particularly expensive. For instance, the deployment of satellite technology can cost upwards of $400,000 per aircraft, significantly impacting the adoption rates of connectivity hardware and services, especially among airlines operating in developing regions such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America. This financial burden limits the ability of aerospace companies to modernize their avionics systems and keep pace with technological advancements.

Aerospace Avionics Market by Platform

On the basis of platform, the market is divided into military aviation, commercial aviation, general aviation and special mission aviation.

Enhanced Connectivity Solutions will Create Lucrative Growth Opportunities

The pursuit of cutting-edge connectivity solutions in avionics systems presents a strategic opportunity to meet the increasing demand for enhanced connectivity options in the aviation sector. This opportunity revolves around the implementation of state-of-the-art communication technologies, particularly high-speed satellite connectivity and the integration of 5G networks into avionics infrastructure.

For instance, in December 2022, United Airlines launched its largest widebody aircraft order by a U.S. carrier in commercial aviation history, for 100 new 787 Dreamliners plus options to add 100 more. With this order, the airline is now expecting new deliveries of 700 new narrowbody and widebody aircraft by 2032, on an average of 2 aircraft per week in 2023 and 3 aircraft per week in 2024. Such developments render a positive outlook for the market in North America during the forecast period.

Aerospace Avionics Market by End-Use

On the basis of end-use, it is divided into OEM and aftermarket.OEM segment generated the largest revenue in 2022, and expected to follow the same trend during the forecast period of 2022-2032.

Embracing these advanced connectivity solutions enables avionics systems to facilitate seamless data exchange between aircraft, ground systems, and other airborne platforms. This enhances real-time monitoring capabilities and contributes to improved air traffic management, enhancing operational efficiency and safety. The integration of high-speed satellite connectivity ensures uninterrupted and reliable communication, even in remote or challenging airspace, promoting effective coordination and data sharing.

In addition, in June 2023, at the Paris Air Show, Embraer Services & Support launched the next-generation version of its aircraft health analysis and diagnosis (AHEAD) system for its E-Jets. This AHEAD system will integrate and analyze trends from several systems, such as landing gear, navigation, pneumatics, etc., and can detect anomalies and identify potential issues before they become critical.

Aerospace Avionics Market by Region

Region wise, the aerospace avionics market trends are analyzed across North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (UK, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Spain and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and Latin America (Brazil, Argentina and Rest of Latin America) and Middle East and Africa(Saudi Arabia, UAE, Israel and Africa). On the basis of region, North America is expected to be the largest market shareholder with a CAGR of 8.07% from 2022 to2032 owing to the consistent demand for advanced avionics across aerospace avionics.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War on Aerospace Avionics Industry

The Russia-Ukraine conflict has the potential to significantly impact the aerospace avionics market due to several interconnected factors. Firstly, disruptions in the supply chain of critical components and technologies could occur, as both Russia and Ukraine are important players in the aerospace manufacturing sector. Any disruption in the supply chain could lead to delays in production of raw materials and delivery of avionics systems, affecting manufacturers and airlines globally.

Agreements imposed by the U.S. and France have directly affected the Russian aviation sector, leading to two major aircraft original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Boeing and Airbus, refusing to provide spare parts and accessories for their aircraft used by Russian airlines. The analysis indicates that nearly 75% of Russian carriers rely on Airbus and Boeing aircraft. The consequences of these sanctions on parts and accessories for these aircraft are anticipated to significantly restrict the operations of these carriers.

Moreover, the conflict has increased geopolitical tensions, resulting in increased uncertainty within the aerospace industry. This uncertainty can influence investment decisions and market dynamics, potentially leading to delays or cancellations of avionics system upgrades or new projects. Stakeholders in the industry may adopt a cautious approach as they assess the risks and potential implications of the ongoing conflict.

In addition, the economic impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict can affect throughout the aerospace avionics market. Fluctuations in currency values, trade restrictions, and geopolitical instability can disrupt financial markets and impact the overall economic outlook. Such economic uncertainties can affect demand for avionics systems and influence purchasing decisions by airlines and aircraft manufacturers.
