The global electronic flight bag market size was USD 2.02 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with electronic flight bags witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market had shown a huge decline of 54.6% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.90 billion in 2021 to USD 5.86 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 10.57% during the 2021-2028 period.


An electronic flight bag (EFB) stores and retrieves documents needed for flight operations such as aeronautical charts, operating manuals, airport information, weather information, route information, flight log, and other required information. The EFB also provides real-time data, which helps the pilot operate and reduces aircraft weight, improving fuel efficiency. The surge in commercial aircraft deliveries and the rising safety concerns is driving the market. Similarly, the focus on enhanced operational efficiency will spur opportunities for the market.

Negative Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Aviation Sector Expected to Harm the Market


In 2020, due to the COVID-19 impact, a decrease in the delivery of new aircraft had hampered the growth of the market. Reduced production and delivery by major aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus SAS and The Boeing Company till April 2020 has largely impacted the overall growth rate of the market. The overall supply chain of the electronic flight bag hampered the production of the products and services in the market.


Moreover, legislative restrictions on trade and travel and the reduced demand for air travel led to a huge revenue drop in the aviation industry. The loss in income due to low passenger demand also led to the termination of new aircraft orders, resulting in the decreased demand for overall OEMs supply of EFBs.                               


LATEST TRENDS

Rising Adoption of Integrated and Smart EFB Solutions to Lead to Electronic Flight Bag Market Growth


The rise in demand for advanced electronic flight bag solutions increases airline efficiencies by lowering ground operation costs, and streamlining pilot workflows is likely to boost the demand for the market.



  • For instance, Jeppesen developed a suite of EFB solutions that allow most significant tools and data communication through aircraft connectivity, reducing flight plan production, distribution, and storage costs by entirely digitizing the flight briefing process.

  • Similarly, Thales Group has designed and developed Thales Pad, a flight plan hardware integrated with the Aviobook software suite. This is seamlessly connected to the avionics suite through an Aircraft Interface Device (AID). This system is a high-performance, highly reliable, lightweight, durable, and low-cost electronic flight plan system.


DRIVING FACTORS


Surge in Commercial Aircraft Deliveries to Boost Market Growth


Strong economic growth and the increasing middle-class population are some of the reasons for an increase in air passenger traffic. Owing to the rising number of passengers traveling by air, the airliners are focused on expanding their fleets. Thus, the rise in demand for air travel has facilitated the growth of commercial aircraft, which, in turn, has increased the demand for flight bags in aviation industry. Moreover, the growing demand for next-generation aircraft is expected to propel the growth of the EFB market analysis. The rise in aircraft deliveries in emerging economies in Asia-Pacific is anticipated to fuel market growth.


Rising Need for Low Fuel Cost to Support Market Growth


The conventional pilot’s flight bag helps the pilot operate the aircraft and has been replaced by an electronic flight bag. The typical flight bag is heavy, weighing around 40 pounds, whereas an EFB weighs approximately 5 pounds. The weight advantage is driving the growth of the market as the overall weight of an aircraft is the most important factor to increase operational efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. Thus, it helps in reducing the overall weight of the aircraft, which increases efficiency. Thus, the need to improve operational efficiency and reduce fuel cost is anticipated to boost the growth of the global market during the forecast period.


Rising Safety Concerns and Real-Time Access of Information to Surge Demand for Electronic Flight Bag


Passenger safety is the most important concern of airlines due to which procurement of next-generation aircraft has been increased. Besides, the real-time access of information helps the pilot stay up to date with live weather information while assisting in route management. The rising fluctuations in climate change have increased the concern towards passenger safety.


RESTRAINING FACTORS


High Capital Cost Involved in Implementation of EFBs to Hamper Growth


The cost involved in implementing electronic flight bag is restraining the market growth as the cost is considerably higher. Minor domestic airlines avoid employing EFBs owing to their higher initial capital cost. Also, the cost of updating and maintaining the software adds to the financial burden of airlines.


SEGMENTATION


By Type Analysis


Portable Electronic Flight Bag Segment to Dominate


Based on type, the market is divided into the portable and installed segment. The portable EFB segment is further classified into Class 1 and Class 2.


The portable segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The portable Class 2 EFBs is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the portability and capability of the products. Moreover, Class 2 portable electronic flight bag does not require airworthiness authorization, which makes it easier to use.


By Component Analysis


Software Segment to Grow at Higher CAGR


Based on the component, the market is classified into hardware and software.


The hardware segment is further divided into Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 segments.


The hardware segment is predicted to be the largest segment during the forecast period. In contrast, the software segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, owing to rapid development in the software for the systems. The developers are focusing on including operations of aircraft cockpit into the electronic flight bag suits.
