Published: Nov 2018 | Report Code: 59448-11-18

Overview:

The global aircraft exterior lighting market was valued at US$ 2,387.2 Mn in 2017, expanding at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Aircrafts are furnished with a range of interior and exterior lights that are used for safety, direction-finding and to improve discernibility during takeoff or while taxiing on the ground. Aircraft lighting systems are one of the key components of an aircraft. All the aircraft types are tailored with external lights of some description. The type and purpose of the exterior lighting systems of an aircraft differ in accordance with its size, role and normal flight environment.

Exterior lights of an aircraft generally makes an aircraft more visible to other aircraft, improves pilot visibility during critical phases of flight, and provides illumination for some other specific purpose. In low-visibility conditions, bright aircraft external lighting means seeing and being seen. On the outside, aircrafts are equipped with an array of different lights. These lights are primarily safety lights and most of them are required in a condition when an aircraft is flying in the dark.

Rising demand for energy efficient lighting systems for safe navigation is driving the growth prospects of aircraft exterior lighting market. Exterior lights of an aircraft can be used to increase situational vigilance and alert other aircraft and ground personnel on the intended movement. The pilots should consider the benefits of operating lights at all times to improve visibility of their aircraft. Technological advancements, in regards to miniaturization of components, implementing advanced technologies, including LED lighting systems, implementation of smart lighting, addition of lightweight products, and use of energy efficient lighting products have encouraged airline operators to invest in advanced aircraft lighting systems for long-term benefits. As a result, implementation of LED lights for its use in exterior lighting of an aircraft expected to provide lucrative opportunities in the near future. Significant savings on energy and maintenance costs coupled with improved visibility and greater safety will extensively augment their demand.
