Aircraft seat structures are manufactured from aircraft seat frames and the seat frames differ in pattern on the basis of requirement of the type of aircraft. Aircraft seat frames are made from composites, magnesium alloy, or aluminum alloy. Primarily, aircraft seat frames are used to provide support for armrests, seat belt anchors, seat cushions, and seatback in an aircraft. Moreover, aircraft seat frames aim at reduction of weight and enhance the fuel efficiency of aircraft.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Rapid spread of COVID-19 virus across the globe has led to reduction in availability of raw materials such as composites and magnesium alloys, which are used in manufacturing of aircraft seat frames.

Significant drop in cash revenue of the aviation industry negatively impacted the business of aircraft seat frames market due to the regulations and restrictions implemented on trade by governments worldwide.

Limited availability of equipment and staff at the manufacturing facilities caused by the COVID-19 outbreak delayed the scheduled deliveries of the aircraft seat frames.

Lockdown reduced the air passenger traffic and restricted air travel, which, in turn, reduced the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) activities of the aircraft seat frames market.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Rise in demand for lightweight seat and technological developments in the aerospace & defense field, and changing rules are the major factors that drive the growth of the aircraft seat frames market. However, need for ideal weight & cost-effective seat frames and scarcity of successful airline in developing economies restrict the market growth. Contrarily, arrival of electrical Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft, increase in GDP, and rise of investments in commercial aviation present new window of opportunity for the industry.

The aircraft seat frames market trends are as follows:    

Rise in demand for lightweight seat 

Increase in oil prices globally due to limited supply and growing demand has given rise to demand of fuel-efficient aircraft to cut down operational costs significantly for the aviation industry. Lightweight seat frames help to lower the overall weight of the aircraft appreciably to lower the fuel consumption of the aircraft. For instance, in March 2020, during the Singapore Airshow, ST Engineering unveiled an economy class seat concept, constituted majorly by magnesium alloy, which allows it to reduce the overall weight of the seat to 12kgs—about 37% reduction of weight compared to the traditional design. Hence, rise in oil prices globally and demand for efficient aircraft are expected to act as the key drivers of the global aircraft seat frame market.

Technological development in the field of aerospace & defense 

Increase in congestion and traffic on the roads demand for alternative, safe, and better transport option. Furthermore, developments and innovations in technology such as concept of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) boosts the demand of the aircraft seat frames. For instance, in October 2020, JPA Design with Williams Advanced Engineering and SWS disclosed a futuristic seat inspired from automotive racing industry, which unified all the components and structures around the seat, which gives the passenger enormous leg room and storage space for their baggage. Such technological developments notably contribute toward the growth of the aircraft seat frames market.
