Avionics are technologically advanced electronic systems that are used in spacecraft, artificial satellites, and aircraft. The aircraft flight computer system is a combination of multiple display units which are equipped in the aircraft to perform the flight operation. Avionic systems include automatic flight management systems (AFMS), communication, navigation, surveillance (CNS), and the management of several operational modes.

Aviation Industry is Facing Unprecedented Challenges due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

According to the World Bank Organization, in 2019, around 4.6 billion air-passengers were carried around all over the world. The aviation industry growth is based on low-fare airlines, new travel trends, growing economies, and the replacement of conventional aircraft. The COVID-19 pandemic that initiated in December 2019 from Wuhan city, China, has had a drastic impact on several economies across the world. The rapid spread of coronavirus had a major impact on the global aviation industry.

Several European countries were enforcing national lockdowns since January 2020. In June 2020, Japan announced that it would postpone the Olympic game to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The commercial aviation industry is facing major challenges due to the coronavirus effect, such as the declining graph of air passenger traffic. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) released the report of global passenger traffic data 2020, and the report exhibits the 14.1% fall in the revenue generated from air-passenger traveling compared to the financial year 2019.

According to a Bloomberg 2020 report, the U.S. aerospace industry has lost USD 200 billion market value. Teal Group stated that the Boeing Company did not have a single order in January 2020. The Boeing deliveries have been hampered by the issues associated with the 737 MAX orders, whereas Airbus S.A.S. has been registered for zero orders in February 2020. Avionics is a prime system of an aircraft; there has been a direct impact on the market as demand for commercial aircraft is decreasing from the financial year 2020.

A navigation system consists of landing sensors that are used to enable fully automatic landings. The situational awareness & surveillance systems, integrated flight controls, and simulation and training systems are improving operational aircraft performance. The air traveling safety & security has been increased due to the avionics system. The increasing demand for technologically advanced system is propelling the market.

Increasing Demand for Military Aircraft from Emerging Economies such as China and India Will Aid Growth

The Rafale is a combat military aircraft developed by the Dassault Aviation (France). Real-time generation of high-resolution 3D maps for navigation, tracking ability of aerial targets, and multi-spectral threat warning capability are improving the operational performance of Rafale. In September 2016 Indian government signed a contract with the French government to provide 36 new Rafale fighter jets. In June 2020, the border issue has been raised in between India and China. The Indian Air Force has been requested by the French government to accomplish the delivery of Rafale fighter jets. The increasing border disputes in Southeast Asian countries are propelling the demand for military aircraft. The increasing delivery of military aircraft is directly impacted by the in-built market. Therefore, the increasing demand for military aircraft will aid market growth.


High Maintenance Cost of Avionics Restrict the Market Growth

High maintenance cost is associated with replacing the conventional avionics system. The aircraft computer system is a complex structure of several systems that are used during the flight operation. The high maintenance cost is required to upgrade this system. Therefore, the necessity of upgraded systems is hindering the market growth.
