Global Flight Tracking System Market: Competitive Landscape


Honeywell International Inc., Rockwell Collins, Inc., and Garmin Ltd. collectively accounted for more than 80% of the market share of the global flight tracking system market in 2016. These companies continue to retain their strong global presence through expansion, merger & acquisition, and extensive product portfolio.


In 2017, Honeywell International Inc. was the leading player in the market. The company is largely focusing on product innovation and development to cut down the competitive threats and increase the number of potential customers. It is focusing on expanding its reach in the international markets, especially in the emerging economies to increase their market share and global revenue.


Rockwell Collins held the second position in terms of market share, in 2016. The company is largely focusing on contracts from the U.S. government to improve its overall financial position. As the company enjoys a large customer base, along with good brand equity, the provision of new product offerings would revamp their revenue. This would simultaneously help improve the company’s position in the flight tracking system market.


Garmin Ltd. acquired the third spot in the market. The company majorly focuses on the development of advanced GPS & FMS systems. Garmin is focused on expanding its business in emerging airline markets, such as India, China, and Saudi Arabia. The company is focused on the development of innovative product offering to attract a higher number of customers and widen its market share.


The growth of the market vendors is dependent on market conditions, government support, and industry development. Thus, they should focus on improving their products and expanding geographically. Although the leading players, as mentioned above, are dominating the market due to their large industry experience, new product developments, and geographic reach, other players, including the established ones as well as the regional ones, are actively contributing to the market demand.
