Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems Market Overview


Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market was valued at USD 1,88.12 million in 2021 and expected to grow with a CAGR rate of 3.1% by 2022-2030


A digital glass cockpit, also known as electronic flight information systems (EFIS) and cockpit display system (CDS), is an aircraft cockpit that consist digital flight instrument displays, generally large LCD screens, instead of conventional analog dials and gauges. A digital glass cockpit simplifies aircraft operations and navigation by enabling the usage of several displays driven by flight management systems, that can be adjusted (multi-function display) to display flight information as needed.


Advanced digital glass cockpit systems utilize LCD screens to display crucial flight information. Digital glass cockpit displays systems are based around primary flight displays (PFDs), engine indications and crew alerting system (EICAS) and multifunction displays (MFDs). This enables the replacement of mechanical flight instrument gauges with graphical representations of information from onboard and external sensors and navigation systems.


The digital glass cockpits are being increasingly adopted by military and defense along with airline companies, as they eliminate the need for a flight engineer, in turn reducing costs. In recent past, this digital glass cockpit has become widely available in small aircrafts too.


This study on the global Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market provides detailed information on industry trends, market dynamics, market size, competitive landscape, and growth opportunities. This research report categorizes the global Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems markets system, aircraft type, and region/country.


Based on system, the Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market has been divided into Multi-Functional Display Systems, Primary Flight Display, Engine-Indicating & Crew Alerting System (EICAS) Display. Multi-Functional Display Systems segment dominated the market in 2021 and is estimated to remain the same during the review period, while Engine-Indicating & Crew Alerting System (EICAS) Display is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.


COVID-19 Analysis


The COVID-19 pandemic affected the numerous industry verticals, including aerospace & defense. However, the military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market reported a significant impact due to aircraft manufacturing delays. However, demand over the next couple of years is unlikely to be affected due to the pandemic prior budget allocation for the defense projects by nations and the projects stand to be critical as it is a concern of national defense.


The semiconductor industry faced supply chain issues, production scarcity, shortage of raw materials, transportation & logistics irregularities, and increased demand from several end-use industries, including aircraft manufacturing. However, aircraft manufacturers continued to face a shortage of cash flows, production challenges due to insufficient supply of essential equipment, including semiconductors, and cascading effects throughout the supply chain that may weaken the industrial base that supports complex manufacturing. Defense contractors experienced falling demand over the long run due to national governments opting for reduced deficits and controlling their expenses in harsh times.


Market Dynamics


The global military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market is a very dynamic market and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growth of the Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market is mainly influenced by factors such as the rising number of cockpit upgrades to the existing military aircraft fleet and increasing military expenditures. However, the limited number of manufacturers is one of the factors that are responsible for hindering the growth of the Military Aircraft Digital Glass Cockpit Systems market. On the other hand, the market is opportune for technological advancements.


Drivers


Rising Number of Cockpit Upgrades to The Existing Military Aircraft Fleet


The conventional cockpits comprised multiple round meters with analog displays measuring the values for different parameters using a needle pointer. However, this was a tedious task for crew members to monitor those multiple meters and make their decisions. Although, the conventional displays were gradually replaced with advanced glass cockpits that enabled the integration of multiple instruments in one display, replacing the pilot’s workload while utilizing the resources efficiently. Additionally, the glass cockpits are more accurate than that of their predecessor since they work on digital technology and display the readings in digits instead of a conventional display. Adding on, glass cockpit displays offer compact designs saving on space, power consumption, and utilization of different parameters.


On the other hand, the conventional cockpits comprise more than 100 analog cockpit instruments and electromechanical controls, crowded with indicators, crossbars, symbols, and the rise in the number of cockpit elements has been creating challenging environments for pilots and aircraft designers. These instruments generate large amounts of data that may be used and required for regulatory purposes and optimization of safety and operationality. Hence, digitalization of cockpits has become a necessity as many systems communicate with glass cockpit displays, including attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS), air data computers, temperature probes, magnetometers, and cockpit voice and flight data recorders. These factors contributed to the growth in demand for cockpit upgrades to the existing military aircraft fleet.


Opportunity



  • Advancements In Technology


Technology is rapidly advancing with time, and with an increase in digitization, aircraft are coming up with innovative looks and ergonomics. Glass displays are gradually replacing conventional displays, allowing integration of multiple instruments in one display, thereby reducing the pilot’s workload efficient utilization of resource. Also, glass displays show digital values precisely and have reduced the clutter all around the cockpit. Display errors are more common in conventional analog cockpits, but glass displays have overcome this by throwing reliable reading values.
