Aircraft Cabin Lighting Market Trends


Increasing the demand for aircraft cabin lighting in the aviation industry is driving the market growth.


Aircraft cabin lighting systems consist of cabin lighting, cabin lighting, service and maintenance lighting, ambient lighting and emergency lighting. Existing indoor lighting has several disadvantages in light efficiency, cost, durability and portability. Technologically advanced LED lighting is used in aircraft to eliminate the disadvantages of conventional lighting systems. Increasing demand for advanced LED lighting by commercial airlines to replace traditional in-flight lighting systems is driving market growth. The aircraft cabin lighting system is divided into emergency lighting, legal sign, toilet lighting, reading lighting, special lighting and washing lighting. As the number of passengers increases, airlines continue to improve and focus on increasing the efficiency, luxury and comfort of their aircraft for air travel. In addition, airlines are now focusing more on LEDs for aircraft cabin lighting to reduce fuel consumption. The aircraft cabin lighting market is estimated to be driven by growing demand for commercial aircraft and the need to improve passenger experience. The growth of the aircraft cabin lighting market is expected to be hindered by alternative modes of transportation, airline delays, and economic crisis. However, high demand for passenger aircraft in emerging economies such as India and China and increasing government investment in commercial aircraft manufacturing companies are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the aircraft cabin lighting market CAGR.


Market drivers are increasing the demand for aircraft cabin lighting in the aviation industry. In addition, the continuous improvement in artificial intelligence-based indoor lighting system technology is expected to boost the market. Developing low-cost solutions for aircraft cabin lighting is a new market opportunity in aviation. However, the high installation costs of aircraft cabin lighting will impact the market growth. Narrow-body aircraft dominated the market with 83% of deliveries between 2017 and 2022. Total passenger traffic, including narrow-body and wide-body aircraft, fell by 30% in 2020 due to travel restrictions, including domestic and international routes. Delays by airlines in adding new aircraft to their fleets also affected new aircraft purchases. As the number of air passengers increases, airlines are expected to invest in aircraft cabin lighting to improve the passenger experience. New planes are equipped with LED instead of incandescent lights, illuminating the entire cabin and having an ambient lighting effect. LED bulbs are better and last longer than incandescent bulbs. Thus, driving the aircraft cabin lighting market revenue.


Aircraft Cabin Lighting Market Segment Insights


Aircraft Cabin Lighting Light Type Insights


Based on light type, the aircraft cabin lighting market segmentation includes reading lights, ceiling & wall, signage, floor path lighting, and lavatory lights. The reading lights segment dominated the market; this increase is due to increased demand to replace existing reading lights on older aircraft.


Aircraft Cabin Lighting Elements Insights


Based on elements, the aircraft cabin lighting market segmentation includes light sources, electronics, software systems, assembly, and others. The software systems category generated the most income. Aircraft cabin lighting increasingly uses software systems to improve passenger comfort, reduce energy consumption and increase safety. An advanced light control system precisely controls light level, color and timing. This allows airlines to create customized lighting environments for different phases of flight and times of day. LED lighting has become the standard for modern aircraft cabin lighting. LED bulbs are more energy efficient and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.


Aircraft Cabin Lighting Aircraft Type Insights


Based on aircraft type, the aircraft cabin lighting market segmentation includes narrow-body, wide-body, and very large aircraft. The narrow body category generated the most income. Narrow-body aircraft enable rapid adoption as they add flexibility to fleet management and help reduce airlines' operational costs. Increasing demand for low-cost AI-based interior lighting technology in the aviation industry is fueling the market.


Aircraft Cabin Lighting End User Insights


Based on end-user, the aircraft cabin lighting market segmentation includes OEM and aftermarket. The OEM segment dominated the market; flight lighting is essential for safety in all phases of flight. It is used to illuminate the cabin during boarding and disembarking, to ensure visibility during takeoff and landing, and to guide passengers to emergency exits in the event of an emergency. Regulatory authorities also require exterior lighting, such as navigation and anti-collision lights, to ensure the safe operation of the aircraft.
