Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market Scenario


An aircraft evacuation system includes evacuation equipment that enables emergency evacuation from an aircraft that could take place on the ground or in water. The equipment used for evacuation includes evacuation life rafts, slides (including slide rafts), system (especially for rotary wing aircraft), personal floatation devices (life vests, inflatable armbands, and other components), and ejection seats.


Factors such as stringent air safety regulations and growing focus on enhancing passenger safety are the key factors boosting the market growth. The aircraft evacuation system market encompasses players from different parameters of the value chain, including manufacturers and component suppliers such as UTC Aerospace, Safran, Cobham plc, and Trelleborg AB. It also includes players that provide maintenance support for this equipment.


An increase in global passenger traffic, demand for new commercial aircraft, and rise in defense expenditure, primarily, in developing countries are factors that positively impact the aircraft evacuation systems market growth. In addition, safety drills, periodic inspections, and mandates by various organizations such as the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board, regarding aviation safety, further drive market growth. However, factors such as injuries related to ejection and evacuation, and existing backlogs of aircraft deliveries are expected to hinder the market growth. Emerging aircraft OEMs in Asia-Pacific and Latin America and the development of technology such as sensing devices and lightweight fabric for these life-saving systems create growth opportunities for the aircraft evacuation systems market.


The global aircraft evacuation systems market is segmented based on equipment type, aircraft type, fit, application, and region.


Based on equipment type, the global aircraft evacuation systems market is segmented as evacuation slides, emergency floatation systems, life rafts, personal floatation devices, and ejection seats. In 2018, evacuation slides segment accounted for the largest market share owing to its prerequisite in all commercial aircraft.


Based on aircraft type, the global aircraft evacuation systems market is divided into fixed-wing and rotary-wing. In 2018, the fixed-wing segment accounted for the largest market share due to an increase in the production of narrow and wide-body aircraft to cater to the increase in air travelers across the globe.


Based on application, the global market is bifurcated into commercial and military. In 2018, commercial segment accounted for the largest market share as these devices are critical towards ensuring passenger safety.


Based on fit, the global aircraft evacuation systems market is divided into line-fit and retrofit. The line-fit segment held the largest market share in 2018, due to the long product lifecycle of evacuation systems.


Segmentation of the Global Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market


Based on region, the global aircraft evacuation systems market has been segmented into four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America held the largest market share in 2018 owing to the presence of key commercial and military aircraft OEMs. Furthermore, the growing need for lightweight evacuation systems and the development of advanced technologies by companies in the US and Canada are expected to contribute significantly towards high demand for aircraft evacuation systems in North America. The global market is estimated to register a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2025.
