North American Outlook

North America ruled the market and had a US$ 209.2 million market value in 2022. The expansion is credited to a thriving line fit and retrofit aviation business, as well as the presence of the largest aircraft fleet and aircraft lighting manufacturers in the United States.

The development of cutting-edge aircraft lighting systems will also be a result of the regional airline operators' primary focus on providing their passengers with a high level of comfort and a safe flight experience.

Key Players' Top Concern: Providing Energy-Efficient Aircraft to Promote Development

The presence of numerous key players, including Astronics Corporation, Cobham Plc., Honeywell International Inc., Diehl Stiftung & Co. KG, Luminator Technology Group, and Safran, has resulted in a highly fragmented aircraft lighting market.

These companies are concentrating on offering a variety of rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft with energy-efficient lighting options. The growing emphasis on strategic acquisition and collaboration strategies as well as the rising investment in R&D activities would support growing its product and brand portfolios.

  • Contract Extension - In February 2022, Boeing extended the contract for Diehl Aerospace, a division of Diehl Aviation, to provide the interior lighting system for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. 2005 saw the signing of the first contract for the development and mass production of LED interior lighting for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The aircraft lighting market has gone through high technological advancements in the recent years. These technological advancements and innovative equipment contribute to spur the global aircraft lighting market. The growth of aircraft lighting market is relational to the growth of the global aircraft industry and growth in air travel.

Additionally, factors that drive the aircraft lighting market include use of energy efficient aircraft lights, efficient lighting alternative and growth in aircraft deliveries.

Aircraft lighting is the major security concern of aircrafts. New aircraft lighting systems have innovative working design that save fuel and consume less power. These lighting systems are divided into two segments: interior and exterior aircraft lightings.

Exterior aircraft lightings are used for visibility and security purpose to make the aircraft more visible to other aircrafts. During takeoff and landing of flights they also improve visibility of pilots. They include strobes, navigational lighting systems, beacons, and equipment. Interior lighting systems are used to provide lighting to the cargo hold, cockpit and cabin. These consist of lights mounted on reading lights, ceilings, mood lighting and sidewalls.

Increased Demand for Modernization of Conventional Aircraft Lights to Drive Market Growth

As the airline industry focuses on improving passenger experience and comfort by installing advanced aircraft interior systems, airline operators worldwide are heavily investing in aircraft modernization programs and increasing contracts with OEMs to upgrade conventional cabin interiors and lighting systems, which surges the aircraft lighting market adoption trends.

Furthermore, to ensure that criteria are satisfied, interior lighting must provide enough illuminance relative to an aircraft's installation distance or angle. Growing aviation expenditure and rising spending on the design and development of innovative airplane interiors drive market growth.

Growing Backlogs in Aircraft Deliveries and High Cost of LEDs to Limit Market Growth

The supply chain and distribution channel economic recession has led to a drop in aircraft production. The slowdown is anticipated to increase the backlog for airplanes. This may hinder the aircraft lighting market growth on the whole.

One of the main causes of the market's slowing growth is the high cost of LEDs and their components. These lights are expensive because of the highly precise manufacturing process. To meet standards, these lights must produce enough illumination for the installation distance or angle in an airplane.

Global Aircraft Lighting Market: Dynamics

Increasing air travel and aircraft industry are the primary factors which are driving the aircraft lighting market.

A key growth driver is expected to be the use of energy efficient aircraft lights, and efficient lighting alternatives. The global aircraft lighting market is witnessing high opportunity potential in low weight aircraft lights segment.

Additionally, global economic uncertainty is acting as growth restraints in the global aircraft lighting market.
