   May 28, 2015

The global commercial aerospace seating market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% over 2015-2020. An increase in the number of aircraft deliveries, increasing global air traffic & passenger seating capacity, retrofitting of seats and requirement of stronger, durable, aesthetically appealing seats are all adding to the growth of this market.

Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global commercial aerospace seating market by region, aircraft type, and product type and  offers its findings in its comprehensive research report, “Growth Opportunities in Global Commercial Aerospace Seating Market 2015-2020: Trends, Forecast and Opportunity Analysis.” This report provides an in-depth analysis of the global commercial aerospace seating market, including current and emerging market trends, competitive landscapes, company profiles, and key drivers of the industry growth.

The global commercial aerospace industry growth is driven primarily by increase in global air travel. Airlines are constantly looking at different approaches in rolling out strategic changes in altering cabin configuration that increase passenger carrying capacity. The new ergonomically designed aircraft seats are becoming lighter (through greater use of composites) without sacrificing comfort or reliability and come with the added bonus of reducing fuel burn, despite additional passengers.

A key feature of emerging trends has been intensive R&D in evolving main cabin seating solutions, scalable for both narrow and wide-body aircraft. Wider seats and reduced seat pitch have been proved to increase seat count with equivalent comfort.

The global commercial aerospace seating market is highly consolidated. The top players, such as B/E Aerospace, Zodiac Aerospace and Recaro Aircraft Seating have the ability to supply seating systems for various types of aircrafts. The key players are focusing on forging strategic alliances while also exploring the M&A route for business growth.
