Flight Inspection Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Flight Inspection Market Size was valued at USD 5.62 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 7.90 billion by 2030 with a growing CAGR of 4.35% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

The flight inspection market is expanding rapidly as the aircraft fleet expands. Flight inspection is the process of evaluating avionic systems such as navigational aids on a regular basis to verify their safety and accuracy. Flight inspections assess the functionality of an aircraft's communication, navigation, and surveillance equipment. Furthermore, flight inspection examines all flight processes such as routes, approach, departure, and validation of electronic signals provided from the ground navigation system to ensure the reliability and sufficiency of in-flight navigational support in the absence of any obstructions. Flight inspection is distinct from flight testing, which assesses the aerodynamic design and physical structure of the aircraft.

  • Existing airports are being updated, and some governments have announced plans to invest in the industry in order to enhance airport infrastructure and aviation services.


  • The rising amount of constraints imposed on transportation and market services

  • Flight Inspection's Technical Difficulties


Travel prohibitions enforced by countries all around the world to slow the spread of COVID-19 have had an impact on the aviation inspection industry, as flight inspection services rely significantly on commercial airlines for revenue.

Due to disruptions in the supply chain and transportation services, demand for aviation inspection equipment and services has also decreased.

Airlines will postpone the purchase of new aircraft because travel bans enforced by governments around the world because to the COVID-19 pandemic have effectively shut down all revenue sources for airlines.

Airlines are suffering significant financial losses as a result of flight cancellations and reduced air traffic caused by travel restrictions enforced by authorities in the aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The flight inspection market has been divided into three sections: solution, end user, and geography. The system sector is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR among solutions throughout the forecast period. It is also predicted to lead the flight inspection market over the forecast period. Fixed systems, mobile systems, and ground-based systems are sub segments of the system segment. The growing number of new airport development plans, as well as rising investment by emerging nations on airport infrastructure, are driving the expansion of the flight inspection industry.

The flight inspection market has been divided into commercial and defence airports based on end user. The defence airports category is expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period due to the increasing number of tactical forward airbases and defence airports as military infrastructure investment increases. Governments have been building new airports to suit the increased demand for air passenger traffic and aircraft fleet. Furthermore, the Indian government intends to invest 1.83 billion USD on airport infrastructure and aviation services development in the country by 2028. This type of investment in greenfield airport developments is predicted to strengthen the worldwide flight inspection market.

The fixed system segment led the APAC flight inspection market in terms of system. The fixed system for flight inspection operation is utilized for routine flight inspections. The aircraft is navigated by a fixed system for safe takeoff and landing operations on the runway. Furthermore, rising demand for autonomous and stable flight inspection systems in aircraft is driving the expansion of fixed inspection systems to better monitor and regulate operations.

Flight inspection service providers demand a high fee for routine, commissioning, and customized flight inspection services. This occasionally puts airport authorities under pressure to minimize expenditures in other areas of investment that are equally vital. However, due to the importance of flight inspection activities, postponement is not an option. As a result, the service providers' lower flight inspection costs would encourage airport authorities to perform the flight inspection work without jeopardizing other airport expenses. The increased cost of carrying out flight inspection activities is critical for flight inspection service providers to build a customer base in the approaching years, thereby fueling the APAC flight inspection market expansion.

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.
