Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Military Aircraft Ejection Seats Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the military aircraft ejection seats market: Martin-Baker Aircraft, Zvezda, RUAG Group, SMBF Safran Martin-Baker France, UTC Aerospace Systems
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Focus on automating ejection seats will be the key driver for this market growth. Ejection seats are the sole safety components that help pilots survive an emergency. In case of decision regarding deploying the ejection seat, research efforts are being directed toward the development of ejection seats that can automatically analyze the situation and issue the ejection command.”
According to the report, the advancements in parachutes for ejection seats will be the key driver for the growth of this market. Parachutes form a crucial component in ejection seats and help the pilot land safely after he/she escapes from an aircraft in distress. New parachutes are designed to handle greater weight ranges of pilots and facilitate an optimum rate of descent in line with the changes. About 80% of the qualification testing has been completed, and further tests and their subsequent qualification are expected to drive the demand for the improved ACES II systems.
Further, the report states that the Injuries sustained by pilots will challenge the market growth. The entire process of ejection from an aircraft is perilous and can cause severe injuries to pilots. One in three pilots who eject from aircraft under emergencies is reported with a spinal fracture. Such incidences leave significant scope for improvement in ejection seat capabilities.
