Executive Summary

What technical developments are being developed in the global multi-mode receiver market?

The growing ordinance for installing satellite-based augmentation systems in airframes, as well as the lightweight design concept, is to use less material with lower density while maintaining or improving technical performance. Technological innovations such as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out are also emerging. While airlines invest in aircraft modernization and fleet upgrades, they also ensure that their aircraft are compatible with the latest technologies and develop Required Navigation Performance (RNP) flight control approaches. As a result, airlines are increasing their investments in advanced navigation systems.

Which are the key investments by the multi-mode receiver market players?

Various governments worldwide have been investing in and building new airports to meet the increasing demands for air passenger traffic and airframe fleets. For instance, the Airport Authority of India (AAI) recently announced in December 2019 its plans to build the first three water aerodromes in Andaman & Nicobar (a union territory of India). The Indian government plans to invest USD 1.83 billion in airport infrastructure and aviation services development by 2026. In addition, India plans to open an additional 100 airports by the end of 2024 as part of PM Narendra Modi's vision to make India a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025. Such investment in new construction airport projects (new airports built from the ground up on previously undeveloped land) is anticipated to boost the multi-mode receiver industry.

What are the Major Driving Factors for the Multi-Mode Receiver Market?

A multi-mode receiver combines several independent receivers into a single device, reducing overall size, power consumption, and equipment costs while enhancing aircraft safety. The growing need to minimize weight, maximize space utilization, and improve aircraft efficiency is the primary factor driving the global market. The rising demand for new and upgraded aircraft due to the rising air freight and passenger traffic is also a significant factor that spurs growth. Besides, governments in various countries are enacting favorable aviation safety regulations to encourage the configuration of satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS). This is accelerating the demand for the product, along with the significant investments made by major players in ongoing research and development (R&D) activities. Increased aircraft deliveries, rising consumer disposable incomes, quick industrialization, and technological advancements in avionics are additional factors that support a favorable market outlook.

What are the Major Risks for the Multi-Mode Receiver Market?

The aviation industry faces several significant challenges, including protecting avionics systems and technologies from cyberattacks and navigating stringent regulatory frameworks. Modern aircraft are equipped with multi-mode receiver systems that enable previously impractical data exchange with air traffic controllers, pilots, navigation satellites, and other aircraft. As a result, if an aircraft's electronic systems are not sufficiently protected, they may be vulnerable to various potential cyberattacks. Multiple factors can lead to the development of vulnerabilities, including the failure to update commercial software, malicious software uploads, outdated systems on antiquated aircraft, flight data spoofing, and insecure supply chains. A multi-mode receiver system of an aircraft has not yet been the target of any cyberattacks due to the implementation of extensive cybersecurity controls.

Which is the key fit in the multi-mode receiver market?

The retrofit segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The installation of retrofit multi-mode receivers in aircraft is encouraged by advancements in avionics technology and strict safety regulations. The increase in retrofitting activities aimed at enabling aircraft with the essential components to improve their performance is expected to propel the retrofit segment. The line-fit segment is primarily determined by the number of aircraft delivered, as components are implemented on the assembly lines. As aircraft manufacturers continue to work on their existing order backlogs and new orders concurrently, the line-fit segment is anticipated to hold a slightly higher share than the retrofit segment in 2021.

How is the multi-mode receiver market performing in regions?

North America is expected to retain the largest share of the multi-mode receiver market throughout the forecast period.
