    One of the most crucial interior components in an aircraft cabin is the lavatory, it needs to survive high speeds and abrasion without spilling a drop. Additionally, it must be sturdy, use as little water as possible to lighten the aircraft, increase fuel efficiency, and be capable of surviving regular use by passengers. The design of the lavatory varies from airline to airline and from aircraft to aircraft. Manufacturers have gradually improved its design, making it lighter by using new advanced materials. They have also reduced lavatory size without compromising passenger comfort. 

    Market Drivers

    The ongoing work and increasing R&D to enhance product capabilities is one of the factors that will help the market to rebound fast in the upcoming years. Several contributing variables, such as the rising air travel and technological advancements that improve product performance, are causing a surge in the demand for lavatory systems.

    Dominant Region

    North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft lavatory systems over the forecast period.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating effect on the market for aircraft lavatory systems in 2020, due to a colossal decline in air travel. The demand for lavatory systems became uncertain since many airlines either delayed or canceled their aircraft orders. As a result of that, the market for aircraft lavatory systems witnessed a staggering fall of -42.8% in 2020.

    Segments Analysis

    Aircraft Trends

    The market is bifurcated into narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, regional aircraft, and business jets. Seemingly correct, narrow-body aircraft remain the biggest demand generator for lavatories. The demand for lavatory systems in narrow-body aircraft is likely to be driven by the faster recovery in the short haul, upcoming narrow-body aircraft programs, and increased demand for narrow-body aircraft across all regions.

    Wide-body aircraft, the next key segment, is still in the troubled water and witnessed a gargantuan decline amid the pandemic, followed by a slow recovery. Furthermore, the grounding of B787 and delays in the market entry of B777x dented the recovery trajectory.

    Lavatory Trends

    The market is segmented into the standard lavatory, modular lavatory, and customized lavatory. Standard lavatory remains the most preferred lavatory type, whereas modular lavatory is expected to be the fastest-growing product type in the market in the forthcoming years.

    Modular lavatories make maintenance easier and minimize aircraft downtime. Modular lavatories occupy less space while providing maximum comfort and are more useful.

    End-user Trends

    The market is segmented into OE and aftermarket. Between end-user types, the OE segment continues to dominate the market for aircraft lavatories. The key whys and wherefores behind the greater demand for lavatories at the OE level are upcoming aircraft programs and increasing production rates of key programs to support the air passenger traffic.

    Aftermarket on the other hand is likely to be the faster-growing segment in the coming years. After COVID-19, passengers are more focused on opting for airlines that offer them greater hygienic and comfortable travel. Lavatory remains in the limelight when talking about hygiene and experienced a large number of innovations amid the pandemic, particularly aiming at the greater use of sensors to develop hands-free lavatory systems. These market changes are driving the demand for lavatory systems at the aftermarket level.

    Regional Analysis

    North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft lavatory systems over the forecast period, Key commercial aircraft airframers, tier players, sub-system and component suppliers, and raw material suppliers, all have manufacturing facilities in this region. Boeing is the biggest procurer of aircraft lavatories in North America.

    Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period with China and India being the growth engines. Growing demand for commercial aircraft to accommodate expanding passenger traffic paired with the high focus on the development of commercial and regional aircraft indigenously (COMAC C919) and the opening of manufacturing facilities by key players are the most noticeable factors accountable for the highest growth of the region.
