Published on Aug 23, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Aircraft Seating Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global aircraft seating market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2022-2027). Aircraft seating is an essential airplane component designed to accommodate passengers during their journey. It is manufactured using nylon, polyester, artificial leather, neoprene, wool, and other materials. It is furnished with seat belts, recliners, and adjustable headrests to offer optimum comfort and physical ease while ensuring passenger safety in an emergency. It is generally arranged in rows that run along the fuselage of the airplane and classified based on class, including economy, premium economy, business, and first class. Besides this, aircraft seating also provides other facilities, such as lumbar support and flatbed seating. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.                                        

Global Aircraft Seating Market Trends:

The increasing number of airline passengers has strengthened the need for maximizing aircraft seating capacities. This, coupled with the shifting inclination toward low-cost airlines due to rapid urbanization, changing lifestyle preferences, and expanding middle-class population, represents the primary factor driving the market growth. In addition, significant innovations in economy class seating, such as using high-quality materials, comfortable recliners, and providing sufficient leg space to enhance the passenger experience and convenience, is another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, extensive investments in the maintenance and retrofitting of existing airplanes and the increasing replacement of old seats with lightweight materials to offset the added weight of the rising airline traffic and baggage have propelled the market growth. Furthermore, the leading aircraft manufacturers are partnering with vendors in the seating industry to enhance efficiency and functionality. In line with this, the introduction of innovative technologies and computer design software for creating virtual prototypes using 3D models that allow manufacturers to run tests and improve the design to facilitate early innovations and corrections in the development cycle is positively influencing market growth. Other factors, including the growing focus on reducing aircraft weight to save aviation fuel, modernization of aircraft cabin interior, technological advancements, and improving aviation infrastructure, are also creating a favorable market outlook.
