Global Commercial Aircraft Autopilot System Market 2015-2019

About commercial aircraft autopilot systems

Autopilot systems operate, control, and monitor aircraft without constant supervision by the pilot. They consist of four major components: computer systems, actuators, gyros, and GPS. Computer systems allow pilots to program the autopilot system, helps them interact with the GPS and gyros, and transfers the information to an actuator. Autopilot systems enhance a pilot’s aircraft control capabilities and boost efficiency in auto-mode, thus, reducing overall operating costs.

Technavio analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft autopilot system market to grow at a CAGR of 4.55% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Autopilot System Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Commercial Aircraft Autopilot System Market: Honeywell, Genesys Aerosystems, DJI, Micropilot and Rockwell Collins

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Airware, Cloud Cap Technology, Furuno Electric, Garmin International and Trimble Navigation

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “There is a growing demand for autopilot landing systems in the market. Autopilot landing systems enable secure landing of aircraft during adverse climatic conditions and limited visibility. The system is frequently used for airports that have dense snow, rain, or fog issues. An aircraft can be effectively monitored by the autopilot with the use of a computer in a landing system, which measures the heading, altitude, airspeed, and distance and ensures safe landing of the aircraft.”

According to the report, there has been an increase in the number of aircraft fleet with growing demand for air travel. In 2014, there were more than 20,000 aircraft in service globally, which would double in the next 20 years. Emerging regions like Asia and the Middle East will likely have more than 17,000 aircraft delivered by 2034. An increase in the number of aircraft would simultaneously result in growth of the autopilot system market.

Further, the report states that the high cost of installation of autopilot systems is a major challenge for airlines, since the industry has a low profit margin.
