Market Overview


Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market is anticipated to grow the market value at a CAGR of more than 5% for the assessment period of 2018 to 2025.


An aircraft evacuation system is a type of evacuation equipment usually takes place in water or on the ground. This evacuation equipment is helpful for the emergency evacuation from an aircraft. The evacuation equipment includes various processes, including personal floatation devices (inflatable armbands, life vests, and other components), slides (especially slide rafts), evacuation life rafts, ejection seats, and system (especially for rotary-wing aircraft). 


The Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market Size has experienced a positive growth impact due to various key factors such as an increase in demand for new commercial aircraft, growth in global passenger traffic, and an increase in defense expenditure among the developing countries. Further, the worldwide Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market is propelling with the contributions of various intended audiences such as aircraft component manufacturers, air force authorities, regulatory bodies, component providers, research institutes, and government authorities. 


Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific Aircraft Evacuation Systems Market is anticipated to create the highest demand for aircraft evacuation systems in the research period due to the increasing passenger traffic and rising orders and deliveries of new aircraft across the region. In this region, nearly160 wide-body aircraft and 411 narrow-body aircraft were delivered by different aircraft OEMs till September 2019.


In addition, the increasing aircraft accidents require equipment for successful passenger safety and rescue, fueling the regional market growth in the forecast period. For instance, in May 2019, Myanmar National Airline has planned to take an emergency landing at Mandalay International Airport to save the passengers because of the failure of the front landing gear to deploy. At that time, the airport crew performed an emergency evacuation to ensure the passengers were safe. These situations are propelling the demand for advanced and new evacuation systems in the region.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis


The coronavirus outbreak has negatively affected aviation, aerospace, defense, and other related industries in the first half of the year 2020.
