Also, our global commercial aircraft seating market report looks at factors such as need for cabin retrofitting to enhance passenger comfort, growing demand for luxury air travel, and rising procurement of new generation aircraft. However, delays in aircraft deliveries and order cancellations, sourcing risks associated with aviation industry, and stringent regulatory norms limiting adoption of new technologies may hamper the growth of the commercial aircraft seating industry over the forecast period.
Global Commercial Aircraft Seating Market: Overview
Growing demand for luxury air travel
Growing financial affluence among global consumers is prompting consumers to spend on unique experiences. This is driving aircraft interior designers to experiment with modern systems, that include the integration of luxurious seats into the business-class and first-class segments in modern aircraft. The increasing demand for luxury has led to the creation of separate business-class cabins on most wide-body aircraft. As an emerging middle-class seeks the material-aspects of luxury travel, mature markets, are craving for a new, evolved type of luxury. Thus, the adoption of premium seats in the business-class and the comfort offered will lead to the expansion of the global commercial aircraft seating market at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period.
Use of composites and other advanced materials for seat design and construction
To improve fuel efficiency, operational costs, and increase profit margins of airline operators, lightweight materials such as magnesium alloys are increasingly used in the construction of structural components of aircraft. These alloys have uniform crystalline structure with higher tensile strength and higher fracture resistance than other conventional seat construction materials. Companies are striving to enhance passenger comfort and safety through innovative fabric designs. Thus, the use of alloys and advanced fabrics for seat construction is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
