Global Commercial Aircraft Underwater Location Beacon Market 2017-2021

Global Commercial Aircraft Underwater Location Beacon Market 2017-2021

About Commercial Aircraft Underwater Location Beacon

An underwater location beacon (ULB), also called an underwater acoustic beacon, is a device that is integrated into flight recorders of aircraft avionics. In some cases, the ULB is also attached to the fuselage of aircraft. Its primary function is to emit ultrasonic signals when the aircraft unexpectedly crashes into a water body. There are two different and independent units of data recorders for an aircraft. The flight data recorder (FDR) captures various parameters of flight such as heading, altitude, and position of elevators and rudders.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft underwater location beacon market to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Underwater Location Beacon Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft underwater location beacon market: Dukane Seacom, RJE Internationael, Novega, and L3 Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of beacons with integrated pressure sensor. A pressure sensor in a ULB is used to measure the water pressure of a fallen aircraft. This sensor can determine the depth of water as the pressure reading in a ULB is directly proportional to the underwater depth of the beacon.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing procurement of new generation aircraft. In the next 20 years, air travel is expected to double due to the increase in flights in key countries like China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and the US. The year-over-year increase in air traffic has also essentialized the induction of new aircraft to facilitate the growing demand. Aircraft OEMs and their suppliers are revamping their production facilities to ensure scheduled deliveries. The growth in passenger traffic has also led to the requirement for procuring technologically advanced aircraft that can be used for both short-haul and long-haul operations.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is delays in scheduled aircraft delivery. Aircraft manufacturers face several process challenges while keeping pace with the market competition. The order and delivery cycles for manufacturers have been irregular for the past decade with the increase in orders, even though the aerospace industry has reached maturity. The industry reaps profits when aircraft are delivered to airline operators within schedule. However, the long duration of the manufacturing process often leads to airline companies canceling their orders due to low demand from aircraft operators.
