Connected Aircraft market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.2% by 2034: Visiongain

Visiongain has published a new report: Connected Aircraft Market Report 2024-2034: Forecasts by Type (Hardware, Software), by Connectivity (In-flight, Air-to-Air, Air-to-Ground), by Platform (Commercial Aviation, Military Aviation, Business and General Aviation, UAV, Advanced Air Mobility) AND Regional and Leading National Market Analysis PLUS Analysis of Leading Companies AND COVID-19 Impact and Recovery Pattern Analysis.

The connected aircraft market was valued at USD 5,564.0 million in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period 2024-2034.

Growing Demand for In-flight Connectivity to Propel Market Growth

The demand for in-flight connectivity (IFC) has been increasing significantly in recent years due to several factors. Modern passengers expect to stay connected at all times, including during flights. This is particularly true for business travelers who need to remain productive and connected with their work. Improvements in satellite and ground-based communication technologies have made it feasible to provide reliable internet connections even at cruising altitudes. Newer satellites, such as those in geostationary and low Earth orbits, offer better coverage and higher bandwidth.

Airlines view IFC as a competitive differentiator. Offering robust and reliable Wi-Fi services can attract more customers and provide a superior in-flight experience, leading to higher customer satisfaction and loyalty. Airlines can generate additional revenue through various IFC-related services. These include selling internet packages, offering premium content, and partnering with advertisers for targeted marketing during flights.

Cybersecurity Risks to Offer Challenges for Connected Aircraft Industry

The connected aircraft industry, which integrates advanced communication technologies and networks to enhance operational efficiency, passenger experience, and safety, faces significant cybersecurity challenges. Connected aircraft rely on various communication systems, including satellite communications (SATCOM), Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, to connect onboard systems with ground stations and other aircraft. These communication channels can be targeted for interception or disruption, potentially leading to data breaches or operational failures. Hackers can intercept sensitive information, including passenger data, flight plans, and communications between crew and ground control. Attackers might disrupt in-flight connectivity services, affecting both passenger experience and operational communications.

Growing Passenger and Cargo Traffic to Provide an Opportunity

As economies develop and people's disposable incomes rise, more individuals can afford to travel by air. This has led to a significant increase in air passenger traffic, particularly in emerging markets such as China, India, and Southeast Asia. Airlines have expanded their networks, offered more routes and destinations, and formed partnerships and alliances. This has increased accessibility to various parts of the world and facilitated international travel.

Advancements in aircraft technology have improved fuel efficiency, increased aircraft capacity, and reduced operating costs. This has allowed airlines to offer more flights and keep airfares relatively affordable. Changing demographics, including an expanding middle class, increasing urbanization, and aging populations, have contributed to the growth in air passenger traffic. These factors have resulted in a greater demand for travel, both domestically and internationally.
