    Market Highlights

    Airframers are developing innovative, spacious, lightweight, and visually appealing stowage to satisfy airline and passenger expectations. Stowages offer passengers quick access to their luggage. Storage capabilities have been increased since their creation to handle luggage of various shapes and sizes. Mergers & acquisitions and long-term contracts are among the few strategies implemented by aircraft stowage manufacturers. Important aspects in this market are the expected rise in regional and commercial aircraft deliveries and the introduction of fuel-efficient variants of aircraft programs. Retrofitting of interior components as a part of modernization is further fuelling the growth of the aircraft stowage market in the years to come.

    The COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 caused lockdown, order cancellations, and supply chain disruption, which completely shattered the aircraft stowage market. The negative impact of the pandemic caused tremendous disruption and a huge burden on the balance sheets of tier players. The aircraft stowage market was no exception and recorded a huge plunge in sales amid the pandemic (-40%+ decline in 2020). A steady recovery was anticipated in 2021; however, the industry stakeholders’ hope thrashed away due to gloomy market conditions including postponement or cancellation of orders for both, retrofit as well as OE by airlines in the year 2021.

    By Wide-body Type

    Wide-body aircraft emerged to be the biggest victim of the pandemic. Restrictions on international travel almost soaked the market demand for wide-body aircraft programs. Furthermore, delays in the market entry of B777x and B787’s glitch dented the market demand. However, it is anticipated that the market will bounce back at an impressive rate in the coming years, driven by B777x, B787, A350XWB, and A330 neo.

    By Stowage Type

    The market is segmented into overhead stowage bins and others. Overhead stowage bin is expected to be the dominant segment in the forthcoming years. Overhead stowage bins are used in all major platforms, including B737, B767, B787, A320 family, and A350XWB. New product developments in overhead stowage bins targeting aftermarkets are driving the demand for overhead stowage bins.

    By End-User Type

    The market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. Between end-user types, the OE segment dominates the market and is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the years to come; however, the aftermarket segment is likely to grow faster for the same period. The aftermarket segment is likely to double over the next five years from the current level, creating humongous opportunities for market participants.

    Regional Insights

    North America is likely to dominate in the years to come with a market share of >40%, whereas Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the aircraft stowage market in the coming years. Factors supporting the demand for aircraft overhead stowage bins in North America are the presence of several aircraft OEMs and tier players. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is witnessing a rise in demand for air travel, which led airlines to make new orders for aircraft of a newer generation. The Chinese aircraft, COMAC C919, is anticipated to be in service in the coming years. Overhead stowage bin demand from this region is projected to increase at the same time as aircraft orders and deliveries rise throughout the projection period.
