This 100-page analysis is a comprehensive, detailed look at the aircraft seats market, viewed through the lenses of Airbus (AIR: FP) and Boeing (BA: US) commercial air transport aircraft.
Through 2020 average annual deliveries of 1,400 aircraft are expected within the sample of Airbus and Boeing aircraft types. Aside from new-aircraft production surges, requirements for weight reduction and increased seat density in economy class, the emphasis on consistency of the airline passenger in-cabin experience is an important driver.
Also, the incorporation of composite materials into seat structures will enable a greater range of configurations, and complement an 18-24-month In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) renewal cycle. The proliferation of personal tablet devices has IFE becoming a complement to passenger entertainment and no longer the sole option. This will ease the pressures on IFE innovation cycles with increasing focus on software and connectivity elements displacing hardware issues over time, according to Michel Merluzeau, Managing Partner.
The seat market for Airbus and Boeing aircraft will require over 3.4 million seats from 2014 to 2020, it's an unprecedented situation for the supply chain, and challenges remain as to its ability to fulfil such high volumes over the next 5-7 years emphasizes Merluzeau.
Major airlines representing approximately 70 to 80% of the fleets will increasingly be able to dictate their interior configuration needs, while smaller airlines will remain closer to catalog products.
The study also concludes that innovation will support seat technology insertion, but also serve as a means to differentiate classes of service.
Part 2 of the study will address regional aircraft market opportunities for seat manufacturers and suppliers.
