The connected aircraft revolution has arrived in aviation, transforming the way people communicate both on and off an aircraft and making trips safer, more productive, and much more interesting. As a result, key players are delivering solutions that improve the passenger experience while also increasing staff productivity through the use of gear that provides seamless, high-speed broadband. Their array of satellite communication products offers business aviation, airlines, and helicopters quick, consistent, and reliable global in-flight connections, anywhere in the world. As a result, end users benefit from dependable high-speed connectivity for the cabin and cockpit. This is likely to drive the connected aircraft market growth. These market players also provide a wide range of maintenance plans, tools, and services to provide maintenance teams with the correct data and diagnostics at the right time.

Airlines operate in an environment that is becoming increasingly complicated. As a result, key providers offer the most powerful analytics solutions, which have assisted more than 100 airlines in identifying, implementing, and optimize dozens of projects to improve flight and maintenance operations, which evidently surges the demand for connected aircraft. The platform's core comprises two complementing apps, with additional applications and mobile capabilities now being tested with airline customers. Furthermore, it has aided in the improvement of efficiency and drive sustainability for 30 significant airlines and airline groups. It is also the premier solution for flight data analytics, which aids in fuel savings, flight route optimization, and on-time performance.

Most critical companies have taken the lead in providing high-speed Wi-Fi in the skies, which is estimated to contribute to the expansion of the connected aircraft market size. They claim that new firms cannot match their wide product range, install base, and "satellite to services, airtime to applications" offered through acquisition and in-house knowledge. Their breadth and depth of technologies, experience in avionics, mechanical components, and propulsion systems, and leadership in satellite communications set them apart. As a result, they are ideally positioned to secure the adoption of connected aircraft. Key players are also defending the virtual world, securing the vast caches of data coming on and off the aircraft, building on a tradition of expertise, and leveraging their position in the Connected Aircraft industry. Furthermore, they are bolstering their efforts by establishing a cybersecurity center of excellence to assist their end users' demand for connected aircraft.

Key companies work hard to deliver the advantages of dependable, high-quality internet connectivity solutions to the aviation sector. They understand their clients' demands and provide them with next-generation aviation Satcom systems, which are likely to contribute to market growth. In addition, they claim to provide aviation-specific connection networks that are exclusively owned and controlled by them. This gold standard provides passenger satisfaction, customer loyalty, operational efficiency, and safety-critical services today and in the future, owing to a fully-funded technological roadmap. Most key providers aspire to define in-flight entertainment as their legacy - and reimagining the passenger experience is their purpose - as the world's top supplier of IFEC solutions.

The connected aircraft market growth is expected to augment since OneWeb has entered into a distribution agreement with a certain market player to sell and support its Low Earth Orbit (LEO) network for commercial aircraft globally. The addition of LEO to their already industry-leading network enables them to create a multi-orbit solution geared to provide market-leading in-flight connectivity services. Their wireless connectivity devices are propelling the future of IoT Connected Aircraft and offer data-driven solutions to improve the passenger experience. The solutions, designed with both customers and airline employees in mind, ensure that all airline experiences exceed expectations. All these factors are anticipated to drive service demand and expand the connected aircraft market size.

In airline industry, customers across the globe are demanding for high speed internet access during their travel. In order to meet rising demand from passengers, the operators around the world are implementing broadband and satellite based connectivity solutions to their airplanes.

Currently, concept of connected aircraft has gone far beyond from just a provision of internet access over 30,000 feet to travellers. Connected aircrafts has ability to send and receive the real time data from ground based operating systems, that provides the critical information related to avionic system in real time.

In order to facilitate the real time data capturing, Airplanes are used as node in the sky to capture the hundreds of gigabytes of data from take-off to landing that helps to improve safety and efficiency of flight.

Connected Aircraft Market: Drivers and Restraint

In addition to inflight connectivity, airline industry also has the need of real time weather data gathering systems to ensure flight safety from changing weather conditions. Growth in demand for internet connectivity by passengers, need for real time communication system with ground based operations & maintenance team and growth in demand for real time data gathering system in order to improve safety and efficiency of aeroplane are the major drivers for connected aircraft market.

Major operators across the globe are using relatively slow VHF connections and data is being stored in broader ecosystem. Replacement of traditional data connections and data optimisation, are the major challenges for connected aircraft market.

Connected Aircraft market: Segmentation

On the basis of components, connected aircraft market can be segmented in to Aircraft communication & reporting system (ACRS), aircraft condition monitoring system (ACMS) and electronic fleet bag. Aircraft communication and reporting system is used to communicate with ground based operations team in real time.

ACRS is consists of antennas, wireless access points, modems and on-board server. Aircraft condition monitoring system (ACMS) is used to monitor the health of equipment and devices on plane.

On the basis of connectivity technologies, connected aircraft market is classified into L band, Ka- Band and Ku-Band. Ka-Band applications are specifically operates in the frequency range of 26.5 to 40 GHz electromagnetic spectrum, whereas Ku-Band applications uses the 12 to 18 GHz range of electromagnetic spectrum. Size of the antenna used for Ka-Band services is smaller than that of Ku-Band services.
