Aircraft Windows & Windshields Market Outlook – 2027 

The global aircraft windows & windshields market is experiencing a significant growth due to surge in global air travel. Aircraft windows & windshields enable sight of outside environment. It is made of plexiglass to protect interiors of aircraft from UV radiation & wind at high altitudes. Moreover, aircraft windows & windshields maintain the air pressure balance in the cabin & cockpit and acts a thermal insulator to shield interior of the aircraft from cold & humidity. The windows & windshields are made of several layers of glass plies as fail-safe concept to eliminate any chances of window failure.

COVID-19 scenario analysis: 

Aircraft windows & windshields are forced to shut down operations due to government initiatives to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

Aircrafts windows & windshields demand have plummeted due to lack of demand from aircraft manufacturers.

Aircraft manufacturers are forced to delay on-going projects due to lack of manpower and supply chain disruption caused by transport restrictions imposed by the authorities in the wake of COVID-19.

Aircraft manufacturers have postponed the test & development of under-development aircrafts in the absence of international technical workforce required for the job.

Airlines will delay the procurement of new aircrafts, since the travel bans imposed by governments globally due to COVID-19 pandemic have gridlocked all the revenue sources for airlines.

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

Surge in replacement of old aircrafts, increase in demand for new aircraft development programs, and rise in adoption of lightweight aircraft materials for fuel efficiency are some of the factors that drive the global aircraft windows & windshields market. However, effect of fluctuating oil prices on production of oil-based acrylic glass hinders the market growth. On the contrary, increase in preference for air travel globally, rise in demand for large windows for enhanced passenger experience, and usage of composite materials present new pathways in the industry.

The global aircraft windows & windshields market trends are as follows:

Surge in replacement of old aircrafts

Airlines are procuring modern aircrafts to replace older aircrafts for better fuel efficiency and safety features. Recently, in 2019, Airbus launched A321XLR (a large wide-body commercial aircraft) - latest variant of its best-selling aircraft A321-neo family. A321XLR is claimed to bring 30% lower fuel burn per seat than previous generation competitor aircrafts. XLR stand for extra-long range, since this latest addition of aircraft in the commercial sector is capable of flying up to 4,7000 nautical miles or 8,700 KM. According to Forbes (an American business magazine), A321XLR could replace older wide-body aircrafts such as Boeing’s 747 and Airbus’ A380. Such initiatives to replace aging aircrafts is expected to boost the global aircraft windows & windshield market.

Demand for new aircraft development programs

Increased safety concerns over flight control system failure have enforced the development of new aircrafts with safer in-flight control system and better pilot interaction with flight control systems. Recently, in January 2020, Boeing announced to do clean sheet reevaluation of its ongoing project for development of new midsize aircrafts. This project is aimed at making aircrafts bigger than narrow-body aircrafts that can generate more revenue and reduce operation costs. Such airplane development programs are expected to drive the global aircraft windows & windshields market.
