Aircraft Switches Market Overview Analysis:
Aircraft switches, mainly cabin switches, have witnessed significant innovation in recent years. The digitization of aircraft is also driving significant changes in the design, customization and placement of switch technology. This has already introduced LCD screens that go beyond traditional rotary switches and push-buttons. In addition, the new design is increasingly intuitive, but more and more touchscreen models are used, which may be less reliable due to digital features. The challenge in the market is to build trust in new products and build smaller and more diverse technologies.
The global Aircraft Switches Market was worth US$ xx million in 2019, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ xx million by the end of 2025, growing at an annual compound rate of xx% between 2020 and 2025.
Recent Developments and Trends
In October 2016, the Electro-Mech SW45023 exit lamp door switch was approved for installation on Airbus A350 aircraft by Airbus.
In June 2017, Airbus announced the incorporation of the A320 into the A330neo and A350 aircraft portfolio, improving electronics, interior and extended cabin space.
In July 2018, The Curtiss-Wright defense solutions division launched the Gigabit VPX6-688 Ethernet switch module, providing system integrators with a full-featured switch solution. This switch solution simplifies the integration of entire networks into open architecture VPX systems.
In April 2019, Curtiss-Wright announced the latest addition to its aircraft switch portfolio with DuraNET 3300, a small form factor network switch (SFF).
The growing demand for entertainment and connectivity during the flight is one of the main drivers of the growth of the aircraft switches market.
One of the main drivers of the growth of the global aircraft switches market is the increasing use of pressure switches in the aircraft cabin. The use of these switches depends on the type of aircraft. In the plane, the cockpit dashboard consists of several switches, such as toggle switches, rocker switches and button switches to perform a number of essential functions. Pilots perform tasks such as controlling the power supply for various systems, starting the engine at take-off and landing, lighting, radio communication aids and navigation aids. Pressure switches are used to measure the external air pressure and determine the air velocity, which helps to operate and control the gas quickly and safely.
Pressure switches and sensors are also used in the design tests of new aircraft to monitor the performance of the aircraft during flight tests. Also, in aircraft fuel systems, the flow of fuel to the engine depends on pressure switches and sensors when monitoring whether the fuel system has overpressure or low pressure, and due to this function, the need for pressure switch gradually increases. Military aircraft also have ammunition control switches for combat purposes. Taking into account the advantages mentioned above the aircraft switches market is multiplying in recent times.
On the contrary, the need for regular and complex maintenance can hinder the growth of the aircraft switches market during the forecast period, which is expected to cause the circuit breakers to lose their share of passive switches.
Depending on the application, the cabin segment is likely to expand with the highest growth rate in the foreseen years due to the multiple usages associated with the cabin switches that help the pilot in various tasks. Hydraulic systems are used for the undercarriage, thrust inverters, fins and slats through several switches during the critical operation of the aircraft.
By type, the global aircraft switches market is divided into manual and automatic. Among these, the manual segment accounts for the prominent share as the humans perform most of the operations. Nonetheless, the automatic segment is predicted to develop at a considerable growth rate, owing to its increasing applications in electrical systems of the aircraft.
By the end-user, the aftermarket segment represents a vital portion of the aircraft switches market due to the requirements of planned maintenance, repair and revision activities. Regulatory authorities require strict procedures and laws on safety requirements for passengers and airplanes, which positively impacts the growth of the segment during the expected period.
The Asia-Pacific region has a significant share as demand for low-cost airlines grows. Industry players focus on developing technologically advanced products to increase their customer base. There is also considerable demand in countries such as Japan and Indonesia that has increased the supply of commercial airplanes, registering a share of approximately one-third of the global air shipments in the next five years. In the military sector, as territorial conflicts increase in the region, the state increases the strength of military aircraft through local production or acquisition.
North America is expected to significantly increase its participation in the aircraft switches market as demand for airplanes that support the increase in air passenger travel increases. Aircraft manufacturers focus on expanding their product portfolio to meet growing customer demand. The increase in aircraft delivery and orders will substantially increase the growth of the aircraft switches industry in the region.
