The global aircraft seating market is expected to exhibit strong growth during 2021-2026. Seating is one of the essential components used as a measure of comfort by airline passengers. Apart from providing physical ease and convenience, it also ensures the safety of passengers in case of an emergency. In a commercial aircraft, seating is differentiated according to classes, which include economy, premium economy, business and first class. Over the past few years, the introduction of low-cost carriers (LCC) has significantly increased the number of airline passengers. This trend has led to significant innovations in the economy class seating for providing optimum comfort while maximizing the aircraft seating capacity. Manufacturers are also integrating lightweight materials for offsetting the added weight of the increased passengers and baggage.
Over the past few years, the global aircraft seating market has been witnessing positive growth with the introduction of new technologies and several prototypes that offer better comfort. One of these innovations includes the availability of computer design software for creating virtual prototypes using 3D models. This enables manufacturers to run tests and improve the design, which in turn allows for earlier innovations and corrections in the development cycle. Apart from this, major aircraft manufacturers are collaborating with vendors in the seating industry to improve efficiency and functionality. For instance, the Netherlands-based aeronautic defense and space company, Airbus, recently announced that it would launch its IoT platform for aircraft cabins, called the ‘Airbus Connected Experience.’ This development is taking place in cooperation with various other market players, including Gategroup, Stelia Aerospace and Recaro. The platform will be able to link different core cabin components, such as meal trolleys, overhead bins, galleys and seats, which will aid in enhancing the passenger experience, as well as improving the efficiency of airline operations. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global aircraft seating market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
