The growth of the global commercial aircraft seating market is primarily driven by the increasing global passenger traffic, coupled with the demand for fuel-efficient aircraft. Commercial aircraft OEMs are actively engaged in the development of new-generation aircraft that feature reduced fuel consumption and decreased noise and carbon emissions.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global commercial aircraft seat market is highly competitive with many prominent players competing in terms of product quality, reliability, and cost, as well as for augmenting their respective market share. Also, to provide a value-added solution to their end customers, vendors are advancing their offerings by incorporating technologically advanced materials and components.

“Aircraft OEMs and seat manufacturers are continuously investing in collaborative efforts among themselves, as well as augmenting their partnerships with their suppliers to progress the existing seating technologies. Also, the increase in collaboration is considered a highly beneficial approach for aerospace stakeholders in terms of developing superior quality products and ensuring scheduled delivery of seats and associated parts and components,” says Ramyabrata Chakraborty, a lead aerospace research analyst from Technavio.

Mergers and acquisitions, along with increased collaboration with alliance partners globally, will drive the global commercial aircraft seating market during the forecast period. Government organizations, such as EU, FAA, EASA, and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), certify the aircraft seats manufactured by each vendor before it is installed on in any aircraft.
