Technavio analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global aviation actuation system market:

  • Innovations in seat actuation systems gaining traction
  • Demand for automation and fly-by-wire technology
  • Increasing number of airplanes

Innovations in seat actuation systems gaining traction

Seat actuation systems are an essential part of aircraft cabins. Modern seat actuation systems are designed in such a way that would facilitate skull and lower back support. This would help in avoiding neck and back pain and ensuring the right seating positions for passengers over long haul air travel.

An increase in the number of airlines and a simultaneous rise in the demand for lightweight seat designs with less noise and little maintenance have been witnessed in the past few years. The growth of the global aircraft seat actuation system market is also catalyzed by increasing aircraft orders, premium activities for passengers, and convenient seating designs. These factors enable safer and efficient pilot operation. Such innovations in seat actuation systems of aircraft are expected to act as a growth driver for the market during the forecast period.

Demand for automation and fly-by-wire technology

The autopilot system is considered a safety aid when the aircraft flies through clouds and during conditions of low visibility and congested airspace. According to FAA norms, the autopilot is mandatory when a single pilot is operating the aircraft. The implementation of current technology autopilot systems is certified by FAA at a low cost. The organization encourages the development and installation of the autopilot system in aircraft to enhance safety. Autopilot manufacturers are investing in the development of new digital smart autopilots that can be installed in a variety of aircraft without additional certifications, which carry high costs.

“Aircraft automation enhances the flight's efficiency and operational safety, which is especially important for commercial airlines. This system is also implemented with an objective to cut down on operating costs for greater profits,” says Avimanyu.

Increasing number of airplanes

The global aviation market is experiencing an exponential increase in the number of passengers using aircraft. Hence, it is increasingly important for airport authorities to organize their facilities in a such a manner that the amount of time consumed for scanning a passenger at the entry terminal is minimal while ensuring proper execution of the process at the same time.

The increase in air traffic in APAC, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East would result in a 5.8% annual growth in revenue passenger kilometers in the next 20 years. This would lead to increased investments in the maintenance and development of aircraft, which will subsequently drive the market growth during the forecast period.
