Any lighting system that is installed inside or outside of an aircraft to provide illumination is included in the aircraft lighting system. There are two major types of aircraft lighting systems: interior lighting systems and exterior lighting systems. Companies such as STG Aerospace already provide emergency photo luminescent floor mats in specific colour  or designs as required by customers.These lights illuminate the cabin crew, passengers, and pilots. The interior lighting system includes floor lights, wall lights, fuselage ceiling lights, leading lights, lavatory lights, cockpit lights, and signage lights. Exterior lighting also includes aircraft visibility lighting, pilot visibility lighting, specific purpose lighting, exterior emergency lighting, and navigation lighting. The primary purpose of exterior lighting is to increase visibility and prevent collisions. In the current scenario, the global aircraft lighting market is experiencing moderate growth in terms of investments, trials, and future deployment. The aircraft lighting market is dominated by some well-established global players who invest heavily in order to provide their customers with the most advanced technologies and products. Aircraft manufacturers, on the other hand, are acquiring advanced technologies from aircraft component manufacturers in order to deliver aircraft that are equipped with enhanced technologies. This factor has contributed to an increase in the market for aircraft lighting over the course of the period.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the overall aviation industry, including the aircraft lighting system industry. Global travel restrictions and the worldwide grounding of commercial aviation had a significant impact on companies operating in the aircraft lighting system market. Furthermore, limited logistics support as a result of trade and travel restrictions disrupted the manufacturing industry, resulting in higher overhead costs and forcing companies to book losses within the forecast period. Furthermore, shrinking economies as a result of the pandemic had a significant impact on the aircraft lighting system industry. During the pandemic, the aviation industry fell by more than half, resulting in $370 billion in losses. Despite the industry's rapid recovery, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected till 2028.

The revitalization of the aviation industry is one of the top influences, supporting business opportunities within the aviation lighting market. The market has had a major impact, thanks to the COVID-19 epidemic but it is recovering at a rapid pace. The increase in aircraft carriers eventually results in an increase in business activities such as aircraft purchases, maintenance leases, repairs, and repairs. The A check for an aircraft that occurs after 200-500 hours of flight has a section to check the lighting system. In addition, the daily check also considers the performance of the outdoor lighting. Such checks improve the aftermarket. Increasing demand for custom lighting on private jets and commercial airlines is expected to boost market growth in the coming years. Companies operating within the stand provide different customization requirements for each customer. The same tendency can be observed in commercial aircraft.Companies such as STG Aerospace already provide emergency photo luminescent floor mats in specific colour or designs as required by customers.With the increased use of commercial helicopters for tourism, there is a greater demand for advanced cabin comfort features, which in turn increases the demand for customization interior and exterior lighting. Furthermore, an increase in helicopter orders is being driven by increased demand for helicopters used in civil applications such as emergency medical services.

Interior lighting includes, among other things, reading lights, ceiling and wall lights, signage, floor path lighting strips, and lavatory lights. Airlines are focusing on deploying multi-color interior lighting to create an ambiance based on passenger demand or mood. The increasing demand for improving passenger experience and comfort is expected to drive the interior lighting segment.

Efforts by regional governments of developing economies such as India, China, and Singapore to expand their space in the aviation industry generate significant business opportunities at the global level. These countries have provided significant subsidiaries and tax exemptions from foreign direct investment (FDI) to international companies willing to invest within the aviation sector. In addition, the goal of these countries to be independent and to promote indigenous products and services in the international market is expected to generate market competition. For example, less than 100% of the company is provided by India within a certain category of aviation industry. However, only 10% of MRO of Indian airlines are carried out in the native area while 90% of the work is given to other nations. Developing countries have opened up greater business opportunities by investing in developing countries and expanding their regional reach.

There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
