The airline industry has made significant investments in the soft goods enhancement and maintenance, resulting in visually appealing, compact, and creative aircraft interiors. The aircraft soft products market had a long and turbulent history. For instance, natural leathers are being phased out in favor of synthetic leathers as one of the most commonly used seating materials. Nylon fabric is a popular choice for making soft goods in the aviation industry because it is not only lightweight but also improves the overall appearance of the cabin.

Most industries, except for medical supplies and life support products, have been severely impacted, as is the aircraft soft goods market.

Top Impacting Factor

  • Increase in passenger air traffic, development of advanced fabric technology, and surge in aircraft modernization programs by aircraft manufacturers, are the major factors that drive the growth of the aircraft soft goods market.

  • High maintenance & repair cost, and intense competition & stringent flammability requirements limit the growth of the aircraft soft goods market.

  • Emergence of low-cost carrier, and expanding airline routes & increase in interior improvement initiatives by aviation companies are opportunistic for the aircraft soft goods market.

Increase in Passenger Air Traffic

The growth of the aircraft soft goods market is being driven by an increase in the number of passengers in the international and domestic fleets, as well as increased use of upholstery products such as carpets, seat covers, and curtains by aircraft manufacturers. The increase in adoption of interior development methods and the need to improve passenger comfort levels in aircraft is anticipated to drive the growth of the aircraft soft goods market in the future. The growth of the aircraft soft goods market is anticipated to be dominated by the commercial aircraft industry. Product demand will be driven by rise in air passenger traffic along with increased passenger demand for aircraft comfort levels. Business jets are expected to grow rapidly due to an increase in the use of high-end leather fabrics for cabin interiors., The seat cover is expected to dominate the aircraft soft goods market due to the growing trend of upgrading seat and support covers in commercial airplanes. The growing demand for venerable executive cabin interiors with superior carpets will support comfort travel. The expansion of the commercial airline industry in the U.S.  is aided by rising air travel demand. To cover the production backlog, global airplane deliveries increased from 1,714 in 2016 to 1,740 in 2017. This continuous production will fuel the aircraft soft goods market during the forecast period.

Emergence of Low-Cost Carriers

 The emergence of low-cost carriers (LCCs) in the last decade, has been a major catalyst for the growth of the aircraft soft goods industry. Extensive research indeed has been conducted to investigate the business model and its implications for the soft goods industry and beyond. Despite recent developments in the LCC markets of Asia and Latin America, much of the research has been focused on developed countries. As a result, the goal is to determine the premises and prerequisites for the LCC model, as well as whether this business model could be successful in other developing countries, particularly those in Sub-Saharan Africa. LCCs are defined by the majority as carriers that have achieved a cost advantage over full-service carriers through a variety of operational processes (FSCs). In most cases, this cost advantage is passed on to customers in the form of a lower fare. For instance, although many carriers are classified as low-cost carriers, the LCC model has evolved into numerous variations since the first U.S. Southwest Airlines, a low-cost carrier began operations in the 1960s. The evolution of low-cost carrier industry provides a growth opportunity for the aircraft soft goods market.
