Aircraft Lighting Market Statistics - 2027

The global aircraft lighting market was valued at $1.4 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $2.0 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.7%.        

Lighting plays an important role in an aircraft to provide illumination for the pilot. These lightings are mounted on different locations in the aircraft that are categorized into interior lightings and exterior lightings. Exterior lighting system deployed in aircraft helps the pilot to get improved visibility of the surrounding, where as interior lights help in providing a better view in the interior of aircraft. In addition, lighting system aesthetically enhances both interior and exterior of the aircraft and correspondingly increases the conspicuity of the aircraft. Lighting comprises signaling devices as well as other display devices thus helping the passengers in an efficient way such as in emergency situations or to inform the passengers about the safety guidelines. Traditionally, incandescent lights were used in aircraft, however, the introduction of LEDs has enabled the manufacturers to install them to offer enhanced illumination, which has led to the growth of the global aircraft lighting market.

Shift from incandescent lights to LED lights

Consumers have shifted their preference from the use of incandescent lights toward LEDs, owing to the introduction of LEDs to be installed within the lighting system of aircraft, which has fueled the aircraft lighting market growth. This shift is attributed to the fact that LED offers enhanced visibility as compared to incandescent lights. Furthermore, shorter service life of old halogen or incandescent lights is the major factor, which has enabled aircraft component manufacturers to opt for LED lights. These factors effectively have contributed toward the growth of the global aircraft lighting market.

High cost of LED

LED lights are commonly used lighting technologies in aerospace and automotive industries. Application of LED in aircraft, especially in exterior lighting has increased, due to the enhanced performance of LEDs as well as their associated benefits such as reduction in power consumption, cooler temperature, and the longer service life. However, during the installation of LED as a form of visibility light, significant amount of heat is dispersed into the emitters, which can be controlled only with the installation of other equipment such as negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor, which allows a limited current to flow through the circuit, thus enabling LEDs to produce less heat. This eventually increases the cost for LED lights to be used in aircraft, thereby restraining the growth of global market.

Demand for lightweight aircraft components

With the introduction of advanced aircraft across the globe, the demand for lightweight components to be equipped within the aircraft has increased. This is attributed to the fact that manufacturers have focused on offering lightweight components, which eventually help in the reduction of weight of the aircraft. Furthermore, conventional lightings used in aircraft include fluorescent lights for visibility; however, with the introduction of better and efficient lightings, the need to install them has increased as they are lighter in weight as compared to older lightings used in aircraft. Hence, the demand for lightweight aircraft components is expected to create a positive impact on the aircraft industry, thus providing remunerative opportunity for the growth of the global market.
