Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis
Surge in premium economy seats, increase in demand for customized first class & business class seats, and rise in adoption of sensors in seats are some of the factors that drive the global aircraft seat upholstery market. However, shortage of seat suppliers hinders the market growth. On the contrary, increase in investment in the aviation sector and maintenance & retrofitting of existing aircraft present new pathways in the industry.
The global aircraft seat upholstery market trends are as follows:
Surge in premium economy seats
Aircraft seat upholstery manufacturers are developing lighter & comfortable seating solutions. For instance, in 2019, New Territory Design (aircraft cabin designing company based in London, UK) unveiled a new premium economy seating concept called interspace aircraft seat, during RedCabin Aircraft Cabin Innovation Summit, London. Interspace aircraft seat sports a winged support system that provides improved ergonomics and greater passenger privacy. Such developments in premium economy seats boost the aircraft seat upholstery market.
Rise in adoption of sensors in seats
Aircraft seat upholstery manufacturers are developing smart seating solutions for comfortable seating experience. Recently, in 2019, Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH (aircraft interior cabin modification & manufacturer headquartered in Memmingen, Germnay) launched seat covers with sensors called smeated (smart seated). Smeated connects to an app that monitors passenger’s posture using sensors inter-woven in seat textile. Moreover, Smeated connects with in-flight entertainment system to provide visual feedback of seating position as well as suggest passengers ergonomic & healthy seating positions. Such smart seating solutions is expected to boost the global aircraft seat upholstery market.
