The global aircraft seat actuation system market was valued at $526.5 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $1.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2022 to 2031. Electronic impulses are transformed into mechanical movement via actuators. Aircraft seats include actuation systems that let passengers move to a more comfortable position. Powered seats may be adjusted into a variety of positions to suit the needs of the occupants. For example, seats may be adjusted to move from an upright to a reclined posture, or they may be fully reclined to become a bed. Passengers may also change the temperature and illumination in the area around their seat thanks to aircraft seat actuation systems. The display screen for watching movies and changing the headrest and footrest are only two more features that passengers may employ with the aircraft seat actuation system. Commercial and private aircraft both employ aircraft seat actuation systems.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market

Lightweight, electric control motion and self-adjusting aircraft seat actuators have been created as a result of technological breakthroughs in the field of aircraft seat actuation systems. Prior to now, seat actuation systems only offered a few customization choices, jerky motions, and a restricted degree of recline. At the moment, advanced actuation systems with built-in seat adjustment features are being offered by manufacturers of aviation seat actuation systems, such as Crane (US). For instance, Collins Aerospace announced the release of its next-generation Evolution seat in May 2019. This seat blends executive and commercial first-class seats. The seat is operated by a patented triple roller system for a seamless transition between seat positions with the least amount of effort. It includes a small pedestal base that gives designers the option to create the illusion of a floating seat. In order to suit a range of passenger sizes, it also incorporates an expanded leg rest. In August 2018, Kyntronics created a patent-pending SMART hydraulic actuator (SHA) with a small footprint that combines the advantages of hydraulic and electric servo technology in terms of controllability, adaptability, and power-to-weight ratio. The use of actuation systems decreases the weight of aircraft seats and, as a result, their after-sale cost, which is what is causing the aircraft seat actuation system market to expand. To enhance customers' flying experiences, a number of airlines, notably Turkish Airlines, are engaging in the retrofitting of aircraft seats equipped with cutting-edge seat actuation systems.

The potential for the aviation sector in emerging economies is enormous. This potential hasn't, however, been used too much. Five major airlines—Midwest Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Northwest Airlines, AirTran Airlines, and American Airlines—have consolidated their businesses since 2008 in order to boost overall profit, and developed nations like the US dominate the market for aircraft seat actuation systems. The US has also benefited from low oil prices, expansionary fiscal and monetary policies, and the deleveraging of the private sector, all of which have helped to enhance its position internationally along with its stable labor market. The nation also has a high percentage of consumer expenditure, which raises the demand for air travel. Despite the fact that the COVID-19 scenario caused the region to suffer a great deal of damage, a swift recovery is anticipated in 2021. The increase in flight costs is the result of the aviation departments of nations like India and those in Africa imposing more levies and lacking enough infrastructure. Airlines in the Asia Pacific are predicted to create a net loss of USD 31.7 billion in 2020 and USD 7.5 billion in 2021, which is much less than the USD 4.9 billion in 2019. This prediction comes from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). A loss of USD 2.0 billion and USD 5.0 billion, respectively, are anticipated for airlines operating in Africa and Latin America in 2020.

The key players profiled in this report include Moog Inc., Astronics Corporation, Crane Aerospace (United Technologies Corporation), NOOK Industries Inc., Rollon SpA, Bühler Motor GmbH, AIRWORK PNEUMATIC EQUIPMENT, Kyntronics, and among others.

The aircraft seat actuation system market is segmented into Aircraft Type, Passenger Seat Class, and Type.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market by Aircraft Type

By aircraft type, the linear wing sub-segment dominated the market in 2019, as well as it is projected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. The seat actuators are utilized for the pilot's comfort when traveling over long distances since linear wing types can carry a bigger weight over a longer distance. In the anticipated time frame, these factors are anticipated to propel the sub-segment market.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market by Passenger Seat Class

By passenger seat class, the economy class sub-segment dominated the market in 2019, whereas the premium economy class sub-segment is projected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. The reclining chairs in economy class offer the user a more comfortable sitting position. As it is positioned right between main and business class cabins, which are significantly more expensive and offer superior sitting conditions to the customer, premium economy class is expected to grow in popularity throughout the course of the forecasted period.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market by Type

By type, the electromechanical sub-segment dominated the global aircraft seat actuation system market share in 2019, as well as it is anticipated to have the fastest growth during the forecast period. The majority of aviation firms employ electromechanical technology since it reduces vibration from mechanical machine assemblies and equipment used in aircraft, which is expected to drive the sub-segment market over the projected time.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market by Region

 

By region, Europe dominated the global market in 2019, whereas the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to have the fastest growth during the forecast period. The huge number of seat actuator system production facilities in the area is a major factor in the market's expansion in Europe. Additionally, corporations are spending more on creating cutting-edge seats for airplanes, which is forecasted to increase investment opportunities in the anticipated time frame.

Whereas, the Asia-Pacific market is anticipated to rise as the majority of businesses are concentrating on finding high-skilled workers in the area at lower costs, which is anticipated to fuel the regional market throughout the anticipated time.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Aircraft Seat Actuation System Industry

  • Due to the global COVID outbreak, lockdowns were imposed in several nations throughout the world, the coronavirus epidemic has had a detrimental effect on the expansion of the worldwide aircraft seat actuation system market.
  • Global demand for airline seat actuator systems fell as a result of severe government travel restrictions and other restrictions on planes. The market effect was further exacerbated by the widespread shutdown of multiple-seat actuator system production facilities.
  • Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the worldwide manufacture of aircraft seat actuation systems has been impeded by the government-imposed travel bans and announced lockdowns.
  • Due to COVID-19, the supply of electrical components, position sensors, and arresting brakes used in aircraft pneumatic seat actuation systems has been negatively disrupted.
