Increasing Aircraft Orders in APAC Propelling Use of Aircraft Seat Material

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 27-Jun-2016

Worldwide there is a significant growth in the air passengers, with the increase in domestic passengers being higher compared to international ones. According to industry statistics, the U.S. is currently having 640 million air passengers, though China is expected to surpass the U.S. from its current count of 450 million passengers in coming years. India’s air passenger rate is also growing significantly, with a 25% hike in passengers being observed annually, more than any other country in the world. Decreasing fares coupled with expanding reach of air transport propels the aircraft manufacturing and consequently the aircraft seat material market. Total aeroplane shipments was 2,450 in 2014 with considerable growth in business jets especially in the U.S.

Airliners are also expanding their fleet of aircrafts to meet the growing demand. Seats are a vital component of an aircraft; and are installed across the fuselage in rows. Aviation associations across countries have established norms surrounding aircraft seats in terms of material used, safety, seating structure and so on. Companies are investing a lot in R&D, to prepare new light materials for the seats. Seats add up a significant amount of weight to the aircraft and more weight of seats affects payload and efficiency of the aircraft. In the recent years, carbon composites are replacing aluminium alloys for the seat structure due to their durability and lighter weight.

The trend of travelling in aircraft is increasing especially in regions of Asia Pacific, Africa and Middle East. To meet this increasing demand from passengers, airliners are procuring new aircrafts. Countries such as China and India are expected to witness largest increase in passengers in coming years both in domestic and international sectors. Increase in aircraft orders and fastened production process drives the demand for aircraft seating materials in the coming five years.
