Commercial Aircraft Seat Actuation Market Trends

ID: MRFR//0919-HCR | 110 Pages | Author: Swapnil Palwe| July 2024

Commercial Aircraft Seat Actuation Market Overview 

Commercial Aircraft Seat Actuation Market Size was valued at 654.5 Million in 2022. The Commercial Aircraft Seat Actuation industry is projected to grow 1276.4 Million by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.70 % during the forecast period (2022 - 2032).

Seat actuation systems offer comfortable seating for in commercial aircraft. These are one of the essential components of aircraft seating cabins. It encompasses various components such as motion and lighting controllers, linear and rotary actuators, control units, pneumatic units, and harnesses. Seat actuation systems enable passenger to adjust their seating positions according to their preference. 

The demand for seat actuation systems has been increasing, along with the increase in demand for aircraft. Factors driving the growth are orders, growing investments in advanced cabin interior products rise in demand for lightweight seat designs, and increasing aircraft premium passenger travel. Furthermore rising demand in emerging countries, and acceptance of electric actuators, are the ongoing trends which are likely to positively impact on the market during the forecast period. 

Moreover, issues related to an increase in the number of competitive low-cost carriers, technological advancements, and industry regulations are expected to limit the growth of the market. Currently, the manufacturers are focusing on developing linear and rotary electromechanical actuators that are less noisy and powerful yet very lightweight. Moreover, developing special software to coordinate multiple actuators simultaneously helps in creating a seamless and comfortable passenger experience. 

Segmentation of the Global Commercial Aircraft Seat Actuation Market

The commercial aircraft seat actuation market has been segmented based on actuator type, seat class, component, aircraft type, fit, and region. Based on actuator type, the market has been segmented into electro-mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic. The electro-mechanical segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Multiple features such as reduced weight and volume, custom design to suit many applications, extensive range of power, torque and speed, and multiple electrical power inputs in a single unit have increased its demand over the last few years. Based on seat class, the market has been segregated into first class, business class, premium economy class, and economy class. 

The premium economy class segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR in the review period. This is due to the increasing number of premium economy class passengers from the last few years, which has consequently increased the demand for seat actuators. Based on component, the market has been divided into hardware and software. The software segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. 

This is due to the increasing development of software to coordinate multiple actuators simultaneously. Based on the region, the market has been bifurcated into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America is expected to dominate the market in the forecast period. The US and Canada are the country level segments of the market.
