Global Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market Analysis

The global aircraft seat actuation system market accounted for $519.6 million in 2019 and is predicted to grow with a CAGR of 8.8% by generating a revenue of $1,001.3 million by 2027.

Market Synopsis

The demand of aircraft seats is rising due to the increasing demand of aircrafts across the globe which is predicted to be a major driving factor for the global aircraft seat actuation system market in the estimation period.

However, the cost associated for manufacturing and setting up of seats in the aircraft is predicted to hinder the global aircraft seat actuation system market in the forecast period.

According to the regional analysis, the Europe aircraft seat actuation system market accounted for $187.0 million in 2019 and is predicted to grow with a CAGR of 8.2% in the estimated timeframe.

Aircraft Seat Actuation System Overview

The aircraft seat actuation system involves adjustable seats with a recline mechanism and seat base, and these seats are used in the first- and second-class seat arrangement in flights. The seat recline mechanism enables seats to be adjusted to upright and flat seating positions and make them customizable to accommodate individuals’ preferences.

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

The pandemic has created a huge chaos in the aircraft industry. Airline sector has noticed a negative impact at the time of pandemic due to complete shutdown of airline travel and all the related operational activities. In addition, the manufacturing of the seats has also been stopped which has negatively impacted the aircraft seat actuation system market at the time of the pandemic.

Increasing Demand of Aircraft Seats with the Rise the Demand of Aircrafts across the Globe to Boost the Market Growth

The global aircraft seat actuation system market is predicted to grow significantly, as the usage of aircraft seat actuation system technology has drastically increased over the years making it an important element in the aircraft. Increase in the demand of aircraft seats is due to reasons like offering enhanced comfort to the customer. In addition, the technology advancement of seats like self-adjusting aircraft seat actuators, motion control, and light weight has increased the demand of advanced technology seats, which is predicted to boost the aircraft seat actuation system market in the estimated period.

Moreover, the increasing demand of the premium seat with seat actuation system is predicted to be a major driving factor for the global aircraft seat actuation system market in the estimated period. For instance, premium seat class has become a regular seat type in aircraft as well as in passenger airlines.

Rise in the demand for low-cost airlines with seat actuators is predicted to create more investment opportunities for the aircraft seat actuation system market in the estimated period. For instance, in February 2021, All Nippon Airways, announced to launch a new low-cost carrier brand with flights connecting Japan with Oceania and Southeast Asia.

Cost Associated with Aircraft Seat Actuation System Technology to Act as a Restraint for the Market

The cost associated with manufacturing the aircraft seat actuation system is high. The aircraft seat actuation system technology is twenty-five times more expensive compared to that of other aircraft seats. For instance, building a seat with actuation system in flight can cost up to $250000 each, whereas the normal economy class seat costs up to only $10000. Due to the price range, most of the airline companies who manufacture aircrafts, use these seats only for premium class sections. Moreover, the installation of seat actuation system is also a costly procedure which is further predicted to hinder the global aircraft seat actuation system market in the forecast period.

Impact Analysis of Covid-19 on the Market

The coronavirus pandemic has proved to be drastically disastrous for the global aircraft seat actuation system industry. Because of the highly infectious disease, nations imposed lockdowns and closed their borders in the initial months of 2020. Air travels were completely banned for months to keep people safe from the novel virus. This has affected the demand for advanced seats which resulted in stoppage of manufacturing of aircrafts. Because of these reasons, the global market has been experiencing a decline in the growth during the pandemic. However, the leading players of the market are concentrating 24/7 on developing new strategies to revive the growth of the market once the pandemic is over.
