Report Scope & Overview:

Aircraft Seating Market was valued at $4.24 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $6.9 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2021 to 2028. Airplanes are specially designed to accommodate the needs of passengers, and they provide functions such as seating and power holes. The seats are made of fire-resistant, durable, durable, lightweight, and durable material. The increase in airline passengers has created lucrative opportunities for airline manufacturers. Currently, passengers are more inclined to travel by airplane compared to road transport to save time. Manufacturers and airlines prefer narrow seats, with smaller and simpler seats currently reducing the range of seats for more passengers on each aircraft.

With parts and building materials, part of the property of the building receives a high share. In the form of seats, part of the economy class receives the largest share. For the end-user, the OEM part receives its maximum share. Currently, Asia-Pacific imports the highest revenue followed by North America.

MARKET DYNAMICS: 

Drivers:

Existing aircraft are being upgraded with advanced products such as IFEC systems as airlines around the world strive to provide more comfort with accommodation and other services, including in-flight practice and in-flight communication for live streaming and online shopping. Many airlines are upgrading their aircraft seats, as old seats are obsolete. The introduction of high-quality and lightweight cabinet seats has led to the development of existing aircraft seats into new seats. Additionally, most business jet owners own their own cabinet seats, with companies now offering a variety of designs and accessories to customize air cabinet seats. The upgrade helps to reduce costs, as parts of modern aircraft seats such as IFEC systems, actuators, and seat structures are made of lightweight materials, thus reducing the overall weight of the aircraft. With 35-50% of operating costs in fuel, airlines undertake development projects to reduce costs and stay competitive.

Restraints:

The emerging economic aviation industry has great potential for growth. However, this ability was not used extensively. Developed countries like the US dominate the airline market where five major airlines — Midwest Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Northwest Airlines, AirTran Airlines, and American Airlines — have merged their business since 2008 to increase profits. The US has also been a major beneficiary of lower oil prices, rising monetary and fiscal policies, and a downturn in the private sector, coupled with its stable labor market that has strengthened its global position. In addition, the country has a high proportion of consumer spending, leading to higher demand for air travel.

Lack of proper infrastructure and additional taxes imposed on the airports of India and African countries have, among other things, led to an increase in airline prices.

OPPORTUNITIES:

The rapid pace of technological development has turned the idea of ​​Urban Air Mobility (UAM) into an attractive business proposal. With increasing traffic congestion, especially in large cities, people are constantly looking for better and safer ways to get to work and other places. One of the key features that promote UAM is the emergence of a landing and landing aircraft (eVTOL). Another major pilot is a change in aviation technology, especially Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP).

The UAM market structure requires a combination of architecture, technology, and business. In this case, the technical aspect plays a major role as it combines system configuration, battery performance, software development, charging technology, and more. Similarly, architecture is also important, as the ports in the sky require a lot of energy, and almost every vertiport is expected to have a charging station. This grows the business in both the power industry and the housing industry.

In addition to veteran players like Boeing and Airbus, young people with the right technical knowledge seem to be gaining the likes of Uber, Joby Aviation, and Kitty Hawk. Dubai, Singapore, the US, and China are key pioneers of UAM that create demand and attraction in this market. Dubai has already launched test aircraft in 2017 and is trying to launch commercial operations for its Autonomous Aerial Taxi Service in the forecast period. In addition, the Uber Elevate project was expected to be launched in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Melbourne by 2023 before the impact of the Covid-19. Uber Elevate will offer two business models - Uber Air and Uber Copter. The emergence of the UAM airport is expected to create a new market opportunity for the aviation industry

CHALLENGES:

The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to serious economic problems and challenges in the aviation industry. Since the outbreak, the aviation industry has been among the most affected sectors in the world. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) actively monitor the economic impact of the aviation industry and regularly publish reports and forecasts. According to a recent report published by IATA, below is a financial impact on the aviation sector, nationally, as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic.

According to a recent report published by IATA, below is a financial impact on the aviation sector, nationally, as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The Impact of Covid-19 on the Market

The COVID-19 crisis is creating market uncertainty, a sharp decline in supply chain values, a slowdown in business confidence, and increasing panic among consumers. Governments in various regions have already announced the closure and temporary closure of factories, thus having a negative impact on total production and sales. Temporary closures of various projects, developments, and production facilities reduce market growth. The global economic downturn focused on fighting the epidemic will have a devastating effect on market demand.

The Lockdown situation is due to an increase in COVID-19 charges that temporarily cut off various activities in the aviation industry such as manufacturing, raw material supply, and aviation delivery, among others.

The number of domestic airlines has been returning to pre-epidemic levels, especially in developing countries such as China and Russia.

The airline market includes major players Safran (Zodiac Aeropsace), Collins Aerospace, Geven S.p.A., RECARO Aircraft Seating, and HAECO. These players have spread their business to various countries including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and South America. COVID-19 has had an impact on their businesses. Industry experts believe that COVID-19 could affect aircraft production and production by 7–10% worldwide by 2020

17. Conclusion
 

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete 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 a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most 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 brainstorming sessions 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 as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining 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 universities 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 accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment 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-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with 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 center, 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.

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 is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing 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 uploaded 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.
