Global Flight Management Systems Market to Reach US$ 4.3 Billion by 2032, Bolstered by Development of Next-Generation Systems

January 20, 2020 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Flight Management Systems Market Report by Fit (Line Fit, Retrofit), Aircraft Type (Narrow Body Aircraft, Wide Body Aircraft, Very Large Aircraft, Regional Transport Aircraft), Hardware (Visual Display Unit, Control Display Unit, Flight Management Computers), and Region 2024-2032,” the global flight management systems market size reached US$ 3.3 Billion in 2023. A flight management system (FMS) refers to a system that computes all relevant aspects of a flight using navigation and performance databases stored in the unit, as well as pilot entered data. These systems have evolved from simple point-to-point lateral navigators to the highly sophisticated multisensory and optimized flight planning navigation systems. They provide primary navigation, flight planning, trajectory prediction, and optimized route and en route guidance to pilots.

Global Flight Management Systems Market Trends:

Over the years, the launch of modern aircraft across the globe has created a positive impact on the industry. These airplanes are incorporated with flight management systems that offer enhanced navigation, lower power consumption, reduced weight and glass cockpits, thereby improving flight operations. Furthermore, several leading companies are also developing advanced technologies, such as next-generation flight management systems (NGFMS), to meet the changing industry needs. For instance, Honeywell International, Inc. has designed an NGFMS that is optimized for future air traffic management (ATM) and delivering improved fuel efficiency, enhanced safety, lowered direct operating costs, and reduced pilot workload. Market players are further developing FMS software by undertaking research and development (R&D) activities to improve and innovate both new and existing technologies. As a result of these factors, the market value is projected to reach US$ 4.3 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 2.8% during 2024-2032.
