Global Cockpit Voice and Flight Data Recorder Market 2017-2021

About Cockpit Voice and Flight Data Recorder

Cockpit voice recorders (CVRs) and flight data recorder (FDRs) are devices that are installed in aircraft to record the environment in the flight deck for investigation of accidents and incidents. FDR preserves the recent history of a flight by recording multiple parameters, which are collected several times per second. CVR is used to record the recent history of the sounds in the cockpit, including the conversation of pilots.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cockpit voice and flight data recorder market to grow at a CAGR of 3.93% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cockpit Voice and Flight Data Recorder Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cockpit voice and flight data recorder market: Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, Honeywell International, L3 Technologies, RUAG, and Universal Avionics Systems

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DAC International, FLYHT Aerospace Solutions, Heli-One, and Teledyne Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Focus on lightweight data recorders. The weight and balance of an aircraft are directly proportional to its fuel efficiency and operational safety. Therefore, the weight of aircraft components also is a crucial consideration during aircraft designing. It is of more relevance to small commercial aircraft, such as those used for air taxi operations, as they are often bound by weight considerations while integrating equipment. Thus, vendors have developed lightweight cockpit voice and data recorders to overcome such challenges.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Greater focus on flight safety. FDR and CVR are crucial components used in aircraft accident investigation. The information from these devices helps investigators to obtain a complete picture (the reason and the sequence of events) of an accident. The data also helps different stakeholders in the aviation industry to avert potential mishaps in the future. The demand for such recording components is, thus, attributed to the increased focus on aviation safety across the globe.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Complicated testing procedure. Testing and evaluating the performance black box involve complicated procedures. A variety of tests relating to both, hardware and software, must be performed to validate the performance of black boxes. The testing of black box software is based on its specifications and design parameters. From a hardware perspective, extensive tests are carried out to ensure the reliability of the crash-survivable memory unit (CSMU) of the black box. The survivability of the CSMU, in case of a crash, is important as it records the crucial flight data needed for the investigation.
