Reconfiguration of cabin designs to act as a market booster
The aircraft cabin interior market is majorly driven by the OEMs and cabin designers to innovate new technologies to enhance passenger comfort, not only limited to safety but more towards green aviation. In the year 2019, various innovation and hardware technologies are emerging for the design and development of cabin interiors, such as cabin storage concept, Active Noise Control technology, seat automation, and air filtration system, among others. Also, the development of new materials and components for different these systems are the emerging trends in this market.
The smart cabin concept introduced by Boeing is to transform the aircraft cabin technologies into an internet of things (IoT) for the crew members. The layout and the functionality of the smart cabin are following the path of the smart home, wherein the smart cabin will digitally manage all the components. The smart cabin will be introduced with features such as voice commands to operate cabin lighting, seating, and even lavatories. The smart cabin will be an integrated system with analytical solutions to assist crew and airlines in improving accuracy in-cabin efficiency.
The advanced galley and lavatory configuration developed by Airbus, the Space-Flex galley, and lavatory provide the efficient use of space on narrow-body aircraft. In addition, the Space-Flex have reduced mobility feature that can allow the passenger to transfer the wheelchair into the toilet seats via a tie-up seat that fixed inside the lavatory. Moreover, the new cabin interior systems are enhancing passenger safety and comfort as they are designed with specific regulations and standards. Such advanced technology solutions within the cabin will provide individually tailored, personalized, and high-quality in-flight services to the passengers. This technology will enhance the passenger travel experience during air travel. This growing trend and adoption of ambient cabin lighting and automated seat adjustment in aircraft seating are expected to drive this market during the forecast period.
Modernization and Upgradation of Commercial Aircraft Cabin Interior Designs Are Supporting the Growth of the Market
According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the introduction of low-cost airlines has significantly altered the world air transport dynamics, with low-cost carriers having estimated to transport 1.3 billion passengers in 2018. An increase in the demand for aircraft interior refurbishment and space optimization from low-cost carriers and regional airlines is supporting the growth of this market. Commercial airlines upgrade aircraft seating configuration to add extra seats in the premium economy class and redesign aircraft cabin to manage the extra leg space provided to the first class and business class cabin to maximize their revenues. Moreover, various airline companies are attracting passengers by providing advanced cabin interiors such as reconfigurable seats, mood lighting, advanced galley, in-flight entertainment, and internet connectivity to premium economy class passengers similar to first and business class. These facilities help aircraft operators to maximize the revenue per trip, as the demand for premium economy seats has increased from the past few years. Therefore, the rise in air passenger traffic and aircraft deliveries is driving the market during the forecast period.
The aircraft cabin interior systems have defined life span, depending upon the aircraft type, interior systems, and components. Therefore, the timely replacement, repair, modernization, and components are needed to avoid uncertainty in the air. These are the key factors for the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Growing demand for Short-Haul Flights and Regional Aviation Transport is propelling the market growth
According to the Boeing Commercial Market Outlook and Airbus Market Forecast, 2019, it’s anticipated that by the next decade, global demand for air travel will have increase significantly. It has been estimated that around 200 million people are expected to enter the middle class worldwide, which will facilitate the growth of this market for these cabin interiors. An increase in revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) will gradually exceed the annual expansion of gross domestic product (GDP), specifically in countries, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific region.
In 2019, there is an approximately 27,492 aircraft globally; this is expected to increase by 11,600 aircraft by 2029, taking the total fleet to 39,175. Moreover, it is anticipated that between 2019 and 2024, the fleet will grow annually around 3.9% to 3.3% for the next five years. This decline in the in-service fleet will create demand for new aircraft across the globe, which, in turn, would drive the aircraft cabin interior market growth in the coming years.
Stringent aviation regulations and Delay in Certifications are affecting the growth of the market
Safety and weight are two important factors that are taken into consideration while designing the aircraft interior system and components. The conventional material and component which are used in the development of this system can increase the weight burden on the aircraft. Therefore, to avoid accidents and improve passenger safety, the worldwide authorized bodies set some regulation that includes the 16G seat standards that enhance the protection against head injury. Moreover, utilization of fire-retardant materials and enhanced test standards for the galleys, seats, ceilings, partitions, airframes, and stowage bins, among other components, is weighing on the product development cost. Stringent aviation regulations increase the production cost of these interiors manufacturers. The increased production cost and raw material cost is anticipated to hamper the market growth. However, the use of composite materials and additive manufacturing techniques for the development of aircraft interior parts is estimated to reduce the overall cost of production, and thereby create new growth opportunities for the OEMs.
The outbreak of Novel Coronavirus to Hamper the Future Spending on Aircraft Cabin Interiors
The outbreak of novel coronavirus affects the aviation industry that results in a revenue loss of USD 27.8 billion in 2020 for carriers in the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, most of the manufacturing units are close for a certain time period. This will affect future spending on the modernization of the new fleet as well as the up-gradation of the old fleet for quite some time. For instance, Safran has closed its all manufacturing units across more than 20 Chinese cities owing to lockdown in China. Also, an aviation giant, Airbus completion center for its A320 and A330 models in Tianjin, was closed for a short period.
