In-flight Autopilot Systems Market By Application (Commercial Aircraft, Military Aircraft, Civilian Aircraft) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Published: Oct 2017 | Report Code: 58746-10-17

In-flight autopilot systems form an integral part of a flight management system. It greatly reduces human intervention with regards to monitoring of the aircraft. In-flight autopilot system renders various functions such as course deviation warning, course tracking and coupling, altitude hold, vertical speed and heading mode among others. Often in-flight autopilot systems make use of computer software to control the aircraft. Moreover, many in-flight autopilots incorporate thrust control capabilities which are used to control throttles and ultimately optimize the airspeed. Nowadays, in-flight autopilot systems are increasingly being deployed across all kinds of aircraft considering the superior operational efficiency it offers. 

The overall in-flight autopilot systems market is primarily driven by the increasing focus towards automation on the part of the airline companies. The installation of these systems in the aircraft improves the operational efficiency as well as safety of the aircraft. These systems come in handy during times of turbulent weather and low visibility as it enables the safe landing of the aircraft in such situations. In addition, pilots operating in long haul flights often make use of these systems as it helps reduce their fatigue. The installation of in-flight autopilots in aircraft with more than twenty seats is generally made mandatory by international aviation regulations. Considering the numerous benefits associated with the installation of in-flight autopilot systems in an aircraft, the market is set to continue growing steadily in the following years.

In-Flight Autopilot Systems Market

As of 2016, the overall in-flight autopilot systems worldwide market is led by the commercial aircraft segment. The segment contributes to more than half of the total market revenue, as of 2016. The installation of in-flight autopilot systems in aircraft with more than twenty seats has been made mandatory as per the international aviation regulations. This move in particular has triggered the demand for in-flight autopilot systems in the commercial aviation segment. Moreover, the increasing quest for the airline operators to reduce the fuel consumption has further added to the increased demand for these systems in the area of commercial aviation. In addition, the increasing number of domestic and international air passengers across the world is also contributing to the growth of the commercial aircraft segment.

The military aircraft segment follows the commercial aircraft segment, in terms of revenue. Its growth is primarily attributed to the ongoing defense modernization programs across various countries. Automation of the aviation vehicles in the defense sector with the introduction of the latest in-flight autopilot systems is one of the main focus for the various defense organizations. With the consistently growing expenditure over the defense sector across different countries, the military aircrafts segment would continue exhibiting strong growth over the forecast period.

Based on the geography, the global in-flight autopilot systems market is segmented as per the following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • Latin America

In-Flight Autopilot Systems Market 

The global in-flight autopilot systems market is dominated by the North America region. As of 2016, the region accounts for more than forty percent of the overall market revenue generated worldwide. The in-flight autopilot systems market here is majorly attributed to the continuous defense modernization programs undertaken by the U.S. government. These modernization initiatives are directed towards equipping the automated aviation vehicles in the defense sector with the latest in-flight autopilot systems. Moreover, the growth of the market in this region is also driven by the need to comply with strict safety regulations by leveraging modern technology for passengers and airlines.

The North America in-flight autopilot systems market is followed by Europe in terms of revenue. A well-developed air network in the region, which makes it easier to embrace automation is attributable to the growth of the in-flight autopilot systems market here. The Asia Pacific market growth is the result of an increasing number of air passengers. Major markets for in-flight autopilot systems in the Asia Pacific region includes China, Japan and India among others.
