Airline Avionics Market Worth $83Bn Through 2015

KIRKLAND, Wash. --- A new research note from G2 Solutions, “Commercial Avionics Market Analysis and Forecast, Air Transport Markets,” is available.

The 43-page research note (AB 076) compiles commercial air transport and avionics market analysis, including a detailed avionics market and systems forecast from 2006 to 2015. The report also includes forecast period market share and revenues for avionics and aircraft manufacturers. It also provides a platform and systems-specific opportunity analysis, intended to identify existing and potential requirements for the retrofit market in particular.

With commercial aircraft orders and deliveries at an all-time high, G2 Solutions holds that the avionics market is not monolithic, but reflects the realities facing airlines in their respective regions of operation. With a slowing economy and high fuel costs eroding already thin margins, US and European airlines are driving innovation and utilization of avionics system designs to lower operating costs and improve on-time performance.

Innovative systems such as ACSS’ Saferoute or Rockwell Collins HGS are some systems set to become important airline cockpit tools throughout the forecast period.

G2 Solutions forecasts an avionics market of almost $83 billion for both forward and retrofit market segments to 2015. Beyond the forecast period, the expected entry in service of new narrow-body aircraft from Airbus and Boeing will dynamize the forward fit segment that should witness a slowdown from 2012.

Nearly 85 percent of the forward fit market is controlled by the three avionics giants: Rockwell Collins, Honeywell and Thales. Thales’ market share continues to rise, thanks to record years at Airbus and a diversification strategy in the regional market segment that is bearing fruit. Honeywell is perhaps the company most exposed amongst these three, with the 737 and 777 programs entering a decline phase from 2012-2013.
