An aircraft interface device (AID) can transfer data between the electronic flight bag (EFB) of an aircraft and a data bus. AID is a hardware platform onboard the plane that addresses integration and compatibility failures of the avionics system and plays a vital role in modern connected aircraft. The AID is a critical component of many avionics updates, such as electronic flight bags (EFB) and in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems (IFEC). It protects the aircraft's control domain from interference and damage while providing avionics data.
The global Aircraft interface devices market was worth US$ xx million in 2019 and is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ xx million by the end of 2025, expanding at an annual compound rate of xx% between 2020 and 2025.
Recent Developments and Trends
In September 2019, Astronics Corporation announced the launch of a new "extended range" version of its webFB smart aircraft interface device.
Airbus currently orders approximately 1,800 aircraft with its customers in the Asia-Pacific region, which represents a third of the total pending orders.
In 2018, the Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA selected Astronics Corporation to collect vehicle data using the company's webFB wireless electronic flight bag device. This factor will help the US market to maintain its participation in the aircraft interface device market.
The growing demand for situational awareness and real-time analysis are critical factors in the growth of the global market for aircraft interface devices.
Increased demand for aircraft, reduced maintenance and operation costs of AID, improved situational awareness, reduced fuel consumption, the need for FAA approval and airworthiness regulations related are the determinants of the global aircraft interface devices market growth. The latest trend in the installation of AID in commercial helicopters is expected to provide an opportunity for manufacturers. The development of new products and collaboration with original equipment manufacturers are some of the key strategies that the company has adopted to stay ahead of the competition. The aircraft interface device market can be inspired by many factors, such as increased production of military and commercial flights, increased defence costs and the integration of advanced technology.
But the regret of delivery and cyber-attacks can prevent the market from achieving the predicted growth rate during the forecast period. Also, the demand for better fuel economy and modernization programs can lead the market to all kinds of long-term slowness.
The market is segmented down by type of aircraft, connectivity, fit, end-user and region.
Depending on the type of aircraft, the global aircraft interface devices market is classified as narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, extra-large aircraft, regional transport aircraft, business jet aircraft, rotating-wing military aircraft and combat aircraft. Of these, the narrow-body aircraft is foreseen to account for the highest share in the forecast period due to the increasing adoption from low-cost carriers and the growing demand for lightweight planes worldwide.
Based on connectivity, the global AID market has been divided into wired and wireless. Wireless devices are expected to grow further due to an easy and affordable investment for the installation of such devices.
By end-user, the global aircraft interface device industry include civilians and military. The civilian sector is expected to lead the market as the worldwide aviation industry is witnessing steady growth in recent years due to factors such as the increase in air travel, the increase in disposable income and the growth of international tourism.
Based on the fit, the global aircraft interface device business has been classified as line-fit and retrofit. The retrofit sector is presumed to dominate the entire AID market, as the need for fully connected aircraft to reduce operating costs increases, and airlines have modernized several aircraft to install advanced systems.
In terms of geography, the Asia-Pacific aircraft interface devices market is predicted to be the fastest-growing industry in the coming years. China, India, Japan and Indonesia have one of the highest air passenger traffic in the world. At the same time, as the demand for air travel increases, so does the need for commercial airplanes in the region. Airbus currently orders approximately 1,800 aircraft with its customers in the Asia Pacific, representing about one-third of the total pending orders. The demand for aircraft in this region is enormous, so the need for aircraft components and systems as interface devices is expected to increase in the area. Countries in the region are also acquiring military aircraft in bulk, and as the economy grows, the area is projected to be one of the leading markets for general aviation.
