Global Display Market for Avionics Applications 2016-2020

About Display for Avionics Applications

Displays play an important role in the avionics system by providing information on weather conditions, navigation, altitude, and flight details related to temperature, fuel availability, and air pressure. Initially analog devices performed these functions, but manufacturers have shifted to digital display systems, which are also known as glass cockpits. While each analog device could perform only one function, few displays can provide multiple information. In addition, digital display system makes the cockpit lighter compared to analog cockpit. Both HUD and in-flight display systems are important and play a unique role in the cockpit system. HUD is a display indicator that provides flight information on a transparent screen, positioned in front of the pilot's line of sight. The in-flight display system provides information of the outside world and current situation in the aircraft.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global display market for avionic applications to grow at a CAGR of 3.22% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Display Market for Avionics 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global display market for avionics: BAE Systems, Elbit Systems, Esterline Technologies, Honeywell Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, Saab, and Thales.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The introduction of auto-GCAS will be a key trend spurring growth in this market. NASA, the US Air Force, and aerospace technicians of Lockheed Martin developed the automatic ground collision avoidance system (auto-GCAS) in 2010. This system helps avoid accidents by continuously monitoring and giving real-time status of the aircraft's position and its distance from the ground. It is also capable of helping the pilot during critical situation and avoid crash.”

According to the report, the growing demand for automation will be a major factor driving the prospects for growth in this market. Digital cockpit systems are the proven safety aids for flights amid clouds, low visibility, or airspace congestion. The integration of advanced-display systems and technologies such as autopilot system and FMS in the cockpits reduces the workload of the pilot and ensures availability of critical flight information. FAA has recommended the development and installation of autopilots in aircraft and made the integration mandatory in case a single pilot is operating the aircraft.

Further, the report states that safety issues pertaining to digital cockpit systems will hinder market growth during the next four years. Increased automation has resulted in reduced involvement of pilots during crucial stages such as landing and take-offs of flights. This makes the pilot incompetent to cope up with the latest changes in the autopilot system and poses a concern for the passengers. According to the International Air Transport Association, 43% of fatal passenger airline and air cargo accidents occurred during 2008-2012 due to automation errors. To counter this challenge, avionics manufacturers are focusing on simplifying the complex human-machine interfaces that hinder flight operation.
