    Impact of COVID-19 on Aircraft Communication System Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chains. The revenues has gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually form 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and statergy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Aircraft Communication System Market Insights

    Aircraft operation hugely depends on efficient communication from aircraft to the ground, aircraft to aircraft, and ground to aircraft. All aerial vehicles including helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles need an efficient communication system in order to operate flawlessly. A basic communication system involves the transmission and reception of voice and/or data in the form of electromagnetic waves. Communication is carried out in several frequencies allocated by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). This spectrum of frequencies ranges from 30 kHz to 30,000 kHz and is divided into bands for convenience.

    Over the years, increasing aircraft traffic has given a rise to the emergence of new aircraft: A320neo, A220, A350XWB, B737 Max, and B787, which generate four times more aircraft and engine data as compared to older gen. aircraft, posing a mid-to-long-term risk of congestion. This presents the market stakeholders with an opportunity in disguise, to fulfill the unmet needs of the market.

    Aircraft communication systems account for ~20% share of the total avionics’ equipment market. With increasing ACARS volume and rapidly evolving customer needs, there have been ceaseless developments in the communication systems market ranging from wireless communication equipment to surging use of data link and SATCOM-based communications.

    Though the market efficiently dodged the B737max grounding debacle in 2019, the rapid spread of the pandemic in 2020 hit the market like a bolt out of the blue, bringing in sudden changes in the business, disconcerting the entire industry. The aircraft communication systems market recorded a massive downturn of -25% YoY in 2020, wrecking the hopes of another successful year in 2020.

    Nevertheless, the long-term scenario still seems lucrative, backed by strong industry fundamentals coupled with the stakeholders’ unmatched ability to strive through the crisis. The aircraft communication systems market is likely to follow suit, moving parallelly with the industry’s rebound, experiencing a gradual rejuvenation in demand from 2021 onwards, translating to sales of US$ 3.3 Billion in 2026.

    Aircraft Communication Systems Market Share Analysis

    Aircraft Communication Systems Market Share by Platform Type

    Based on the platform type, Stratview Research has segmented the market as commercial aircraft, military aircraft, and government aircraft. As commercial aircraft faces a momentary hurdle due to the pandemic, the military aircraft segment is likely to remain relatively unflinching. Early signs of healing are discernible – The lift of FAA’s B737max grounding order (Nov. 2020) and Airbus’ highest delivery figures (Oct. 2020), since before the onset of the pandemic. The commercial aircraft segment to fuel the market in the long-term, logging the fastest recovery, owing to strong order backlogs of 12,498 (Airbus: 7,377 and Boeing: 5,121) aircraft as of October 2020.

    Aircraft Communication Systems Market Share by Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, we have segmented the market as manned aircraft and unmanned aircraft. Manned aircraft is expected to remain the dominant segment in the market, whereas unmanned aircraft to heal at a faster pace during the forecast period. Several new policies and procedures by the FAA are underway to address and accommodate the growing need for unmanned aircraft into civil aerospace, creating a pool of opportunities within the unmanned aircraft segment in the long run.

    Regional Insights

    All regions are anticipated to mark grave declines in 2020. With the strong presence of leading players, North America and Europe are expected to hold the largest chunk of the market during the forecast period. The USA is likely to assert an undeniable dominance globally. Asia-Pacific is expected to take the fastest path towards healing, with the highest long-term CAGR, rapidly moving uphill in the long-term. Other key factors likely to cause a stir in the region’s market are the opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China and the upcoming indigenous aircraft program (C919). India to be the new growth engine, actively developing policies to welcome companies willing to move away from China.
