    The importance of lighting systems has been increasing with the advancements in technology. Over time, the role of lights became widespread. Earlier, lights were used to provide luminous, whereas, today, lights proved to be a powerful weapon in enhancing the passenger experience. Airlines are incorporating a large number of lights in the cabin section, offering different features such as color options. Lights are used in almost all the crucial sections of an aircraft; however, interiors hold a huge dominance in terms of both, the number of lights used as well as the amount of lights used. In interiors, lights are used in the cabin as well as the cockpit.

    The growth in the aircraft interior lighting market size may be accredited to the following factors:

    • Airline companies are increasingly focusing on improving the passenger experience to gain a competitive edge.
    • Aircraft interior lighting plays a crucial role in creating a comfortable and visually appealing ambiance for passengers.
    • Mood lighting, dynamic color options, and customizable lighting settings are becoming popular features in modern aircraft interiors.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The aerospace industry witnessed several setbacks in the past few years (2019-2022), almost breaking their ribs. All those setbacks (B737 max grounding, followed by the COVID-19 pandemic, B787 deliveries' halt, and the Russo-Ukrainian war) have had a noticeable impact across the value chain. Lights, a crucial element of the aircraft, also witnessed a roller-coaster ride in the past few years, with demand reach to almost a decade-ago figure. In 2020, the aircraft interior lighting market nose-dove at a -40%+ rate followed by another colossal decline of -15%+ in 2021.

    The year 2022 witnessed a rise in the aircraft interior lighting market, led by the recovery of the aviation industry. Furthermore, it is also noticed that airlines are highly focusing on the upgradation and modernization of conventional cabin interiors to provide a better travel experience which will help to revive the market. 

    Segments Analysis


    List of Sub-Segments

    Dominant and Fastest-Growing Segments

    Aircraft Type

    Cabin Lights (Ambient, Seat and Stowage Lights, Reading Lights, Signage Lights, and Others) and Cockpit Lights.

    Ambient, seat, and stowage lights are likely to remain the dominant product category, whereas reading lights are to be the fastest-growing segment over the next five years.

    End-User Type

    OE and Aftermarket

    OE remains dominant, whereas Aftermarket is to be the faster-growing market over the next five years.

    Technology Type

    LED, Fluorescent, and Others

    LED is to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment till 2028.

    Equipment Type

    BFE and SFE

    BFE is to be the dominant as well as the faster-growing segment till 2028.

    Region Type

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World

    North America is likely to dominate the aircraft interior lighting market, whereas Asia-Pacific is to be the fastest-growing region in the market over the forecast period.


    By Aircraft Type

    The aircraft interior lighting market is segmented into narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft, regional aircraft, and business jets. Narrow-body aircraft is expected to be the dominant aircraft type in the market during the forecast period. The introduction of single-aisle long-range aircraft (A321XLR, etc.), faster recovery of narrow-body aircraft in the post-pandemic developments, and expected market entries of new programs (C919, MC21, etc.) are likely to drive the demand for lights including used in interiors in the coming years. The ongoing supply chain disruption in the wake of the pandemic further aggravated by rising geopolitical tensions may delay the overall recovery process; however, still, the business outlook looks promising with attractive growth in the near future.

    By Lighting Type

    The market is segmented into cabin lights (ambient, seat & stowage lights, signage light, reading lights, and others) and cockpit lights. Ambient, seat, and stowage lights are expected to remain the most dominating segment of the market during the forecast period due to the increasing use of different interior lights for a beautiful aesthetic appearance like colorful mood lights with innovative LED lighting technology.

    By Technology Type

    The market is segmented into LED, fluorescent, and others. LED is expected to remain the most dominating as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. LED can generate brighter luminous than conventional (incandescent) bulbs and are more energy-efficient (using less amount of power allotted to all aircraft systems for the duration of a flight). Additionally, LED lights often have MTBFs of 10,000 hours or 10 years.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America is anticipated to hold the top spot in the aircraft interior lighting market. With the presence of small- to large-sized OEMs, this region is the industrial hub for the aerospace & defense industry. The majority of players have assembly and production facilities in North America. Additionally, a number of significant interior lighting manufacturers, such as Collins Aerospace, Astronics, and Honeywell, are present in the region to assist OEMs in the creation of cutting-edge products to meet the airlines’ criteria.
