Market Insights

The global aircraft exterior lighting market was valued at US$ 2,387.2 Mn in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2018 to 2026. Aircraft 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 equipped 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.

The exterior lights of an aircraft generally make the aircraft more visible to other aircraft, improve pilot visibility during critical phases of flight, and provide illumination for some other specific purpose. Bright aircraft external lighting means seeing and being seen in low-visibility conditions. On the outside, aircraft are equipped with an array of different lights. These lights are primarily safety lights, and most of them are required when an aircraft is flying in the dark.

Rising demand for energy-efficient lighting systems for safe navigation is driving the growth prospects of the aircraft exterior lighting market. The exterior lights of an aircraft can be used to increase situational vigilance and alert other aircraft and ground personnel to the intended movement. The pilots should consider the benefits of operating lights at all times to improve the visibility of their aircraft. Technological advancements in regard to the miniaturization of components, implementation of advanced technologies, including LED lighting systems, the implementation of smart lighting, the addition of lightweight products, and the use of energy-efficient lighting products, have encouraged airline operators to invest in advanced aircraft lighting systems for long-term benefits. As a result, the implementation of LED lights for their use in the exterior lighting of aircraft is 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.

Market Snapshot

Navigation lights accounted for the largest market share in 2017.

In 2017, based on product type, navigation lights exhibited the largest market share in the global aircraft exterior lighting market. The segment is expected to grow at a significant rate in the years to come. All aircraft are equipped with a steady light near the leading edge of each wingtip. Navigation lights consist of a green light on the right wing tip, a red light on the left wing tip, and a white light on the tail of an aircraft. Dual systems are often installed to provide a backup in the event of a bulb failure. The rising need for safe navigation is driving the demand for navigation lights in the aerospace industry.

Commercial aviation continues its supremacy throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Based on aircraft type, commercial aviation dominated the aircraft exterior lighting market in 2017. The segment is projected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. An upsurge in aircraft orders is one of the important factors driving the growth of this segment. The growing frequency of air travel is enhancing the demand for wide-body and large commercial aircraft, which in turn is augmenting the growth of commercial aviation. Rising passenger traffic and the need for improved lighting systems are expected to go hand in hand with the growth of commercial aviation.

North America garnered the largest market share in 2017.

The aircraft exterior lighting market, based on geography, was led by North America in 2017 and is projected to grow at a significant rate throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. North America is the most profitable region in the aircraft exterior lighting market because it is a leading manufacturing hub and a pioneer in the aerospace and defense industries. The region enjoys the presence of some market giants, including Honeywell International Inc., UTC Aerospace Systems, Rockwell Collins, Inc., Heads Up Technologies, Inc., and Devore Aviation Corporation of America, among others. With soaring international investments, more aircraft deliveries, and government support, the number of distributors and suppliers of aircraft components is growing on a continuous basis at a strong rate in the region.
