Global Aircraft Lighting Market: Overview

Growing popularity of low-cost and low-maintenance lighting solutions

Most of the traditional lighting systems used in aircraft are expensive and require regular maintenance, including the frequent replacement of failed or discolored lighting elements and broken mounting units, thereby increasing the maintenance costs for the global aerospace industry. As a result, vendors in the market have produced LED lighting systems that help in overcoming these issues. LED lights to enhance the passenger appeal owing to their bright and uniform output of light throughout the cabin. Moreover, these lighting systems have a longer lifespan and come in a wide range of colors to suit the design of the cabin interior. Thus, the lower cost of LED lighting systems along with long-life and low maintenance requirements will lead to the expansion of the global aircraft lighting market at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period.

Technologically improved lights

The global aircraft lighting market is currently witnessing rapid advances in advanced lighting solutions. Various vendors are investing heavily in the research and development of advanced lighting solutions for both commercial and military aircraft. For instance, Oxley Group is focusing on the development of various technologically advanced lighting solutions for military aircraft, such as complex air refueling lighting systems.
