The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.  The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with aircraft health monitoring systems witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a huge decline of -44.8% in 2020.

The increase in the need for operational efficiency of aircraft is projected to fuel the demand for aircraft health monitoring (AHM) systems across the globe in the next few years. AHM is one of the most important parts of the aviation system in which precise data gathering, information of components, and knowledge is shared quickly across organizations. Several aircraft owners are widely adopting these systems to reduce aircraft downtime, facilitate predictive serviceability, and prevent future system failures.

The system enhances the overall fuel performance, carbon emission performance, and overall fleet performance. It is integrated with wireless sensors technology, real-time monitoring, failure diagnosis, data mining, and artificial intelligence (AI). AHM systems use real-time data captured through sensors for improving the safety and reliability of an aircraft and its components to avoid any onboard system failure with diagnosis-ready situations. These systems have reduced the retirement rate of aircraft due to proper predictive downtime and excellent prognostic options, ensuring components’ increased lifespan. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and wireless sensor technology is predicted to fuel industry expansion in the forthcoming years across the globe.

Negative Impact of COVID-19 on the Aviation Industry to Stall Market Growth

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the global air transport industry was projected to witness negative growth in 2020. Revenues were projected to fall by 50% from USD 838 billion in 2019 to USD 419 million in 2020. Several countries across the globe banned international flights for a few months for domestic as well as international travellers to cease the spread of the infection. The economic slowdown also affected regular passengers travelling due to the high risk of transmitting the coronavirus. Many airline companies have cancelled new aircraft orders in the past few months, having been severely impacted by supply chain disruptions across the globe. These factors have mainly affected the growth of the aircraft health monitoring system market.

Emergence of IoT Technology to Propel Market Growth

The aviation industry is mostly dependent on technological advancements and the modernization of devices and components to enhance aircraft efficiency. The emergence of IoT technology, along with its adoption by key players, is fueling the demand for AHM solutions worldwide. The aviation industry mostly includes original equipment manufacturers, engine manufacturers, sensor makers, and software companies collaboratively working on interconnected platforms.

The aircraft health monitoring system is an interdependent platform that includes real-time monitoring of onboard systems through wireless sensors. These advanced sensors collect real-time data and share it with various operators to reduce the risk of system failure. The IoT technology is changing the features of various systems owing to its excellent reliability and the continuous monitoring of sensors, thus improving the lifespan of onboard components.

This technology can also improve the accuracy of predictive maintenance of airplanes and their various systems, parts, and components to ensure safety and fewer failures. For example, the 787 aircraft carrier transmits 28 times more amounts of data than the 777 aircraft due to the use of various IoT-based sensors that share real-time performance data in flights. Technological advancements in this industry to enhance the fuel efficiency of aircraft are expected to propel market growth during the forecast period.


Rising Demand for Next-Generation Aircraft Carriers to Fuel Market Growth

The increasing demand for next-generation aircraft carriers, such as the 787, 777X, A320 neo, A350, and A350, is projected to fuel the aircraft monitoring system market during the forecast period. The domestic aviation industry holds a strong and largest market share owing to a large number of air passengers preferring shorter routes for air travel. According to Boeing’s Market Outlook 2020, the global passenger traffic is projected to grow by an average of 4% annually up to 2040. The growing air passenger traffic on domestic and international routes owing to affordable flights across the globe is propelling the aviation industry growth.

The safety and security of passengers command the highest priority for government authorities and airline companies. Several airlines and MRO companies are widely adopting integrated real-time monitoring systems for various aircraft components, such as engine components, hydraulics, landing gears, and other flight systems. According to Boeing’s Market Outlook 2020, the global commercial fleet size is anticipated to touch 48,400 units by 2039. The future commercial fleet is projected to hold a large share by single-aisle aircraft, such as the 737MAX, around the globe.

Adoption of More Electric Aircraft to Boost Growth of the Market

Technological developments are expected to have a huge impact on the deployment of aircraft health monitoring systems. The aviation industry is moving towards the adoption of More electric aircraft carriers owing to the rising fuel costs and high carbon emissions by air vehicles. Aircraft manufacturers, system suppliers, and various OEM companies in the industry are under huge pressure to reduce the overall weight of aircraft systems, components, and parts. The reduced aircraft weight burns less amount of fuel for long-haul flights.

More electric aircraft systems are lighter than conventional systems, such as hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems, due to the use of electric circuits. Also, they reduce the weight of the system which is the major reason for their strong demand, owing to the reduced maintenance cost and operational cost of carriers, across the globe. These electric-based systems need to be monitored in real-time by AHM systems for accurate serviceability to enhance their lifespan. According to the consultancy firm Oliver Wyman, the global maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) market is expected to grow at an annual average rate of 3.5% up to 2029. The MRO market size is projected to rise from USD 81.9 billion in 2019 to USD 116 billion by 2029. These factors are projected to boost the growth of the aircraft health monitoring system market in the forthcoming years.


Lack of Common Industry Standards to Limit AHM Adoption

The aviation industry is witnessing strong annual growth across the globe owing to the increase in passenger traffic and airplane traffic over the past few years. Several companies, including service providers and component providers, are associated with aircraft maintenance technology. These components are effectively monitored to reduce system failures and provide better time-bound serviceability, which enhances the reliability and safety of the aircraft owing to the superior performance of the sensors. This technology includes the integration and installation of sensors at the manufacturing stage or before installation.

The transfer of technology from one company to another reduces data reliability due to the ineffective use of data. Several parts and components have different industry standards due to different origins, which leads to unorganized database management. The lack of centralized database management due to the lack of common industry standards are the major concerns for several companies operating in the industry. This, in turn, is projected to hamper the global market growth in the upcoming years.
