The Global Aircraft Lighting Market is projected to reach USD 7.56 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. An aircraft requires a variety of lights for several purposes, including safety, navigation, to improve visibility during flight or while taxiing, etc. The two main categories of aircraft lighting are interior and exterior lights. Interior lights include reading lights, ceiling lights, and floor path lights, among others, and are used to assist passengers in various activities. The Exterior lights such as Landing lights, position lights, runway turnoff lights, etc., are used to provide functional assistance in the safety and operation of an aircraft.

Aircraft Lighting Market

Based on lighting type, the aircraft lighting market has been segmented into interior and exterior. The interior lighting segment is expected to grow at a higher rate as compared to the exterior segment due to increasing orders from aircraft manufacturers to offer a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere to passengers. Lights for reading, guiding, and creating an ambiance make the flight relaxed and satisfying.

Global Aircraft Lighting Market

Based on aircraft type, the market has been segmented into commercial, military, and business aviation. The commercial aviation segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. With an increase in disposable income and worldwide tourism, commercial aircraft are being manufactured to meet the growing travel demand. Moreover, due to globalization, many countries are carrying out trade using air transport. These factors are likely to propel the demand for commercial aircraft during the forecast period.

North America is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. Two of the large aircraft manufacturers, Boeing (US) and Bombardier (Canada) are present in this region. Hence, the demand for aircraft lighting is expected to rise during the forecast period. Moreover, the US military expenditure is the highest in the world and the demand for aircraft lighting is high from the military aviation aircraft type segment.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • High demand from commercial aircraft to enhance passenger experience
  • Growth of tourism industry
  • Globalization leading to the use of air-cargo to transport goods in less time
  • Rising demand for military application

Key Developments:

  • In November 2016, Rockwell Collins acquired B/E Aerospace. This acquisition will help Rockwell Collins to expand the range of product offerings to major commercial and business aircraft and strengthen its customer base internationally
  • In November 2018, United Technologies (UTC) acquired Rockwell Collins. This was one of the largest acquisitions in the history of the aerospace manufacturing industry. Through this acquisition, Rockwell Collins will become Collins Aerospace in a combined re-structuring with United Technologies
