In-flight entertainment and connectivity is considered to be the onboard internet service provided by multiple airlines to commercial and business aircraft passengers. The service can be easily accessed with the help of Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), including laptops and smartphones for watching movies, playing games, and internet surfing.

In-flight entertainment and connectivity systems are exhibiting high popularity as these do not require visible wires for operation. The wiring is usually stored away inside the aircraft walls, near the air conditioning controls and oxygen masks.

Increasing number of airline passengers and the presence of favorable policies for usage of personal electronic devices onboard are projected to spur the demand for in-flight entertainment & connectivity solutions. Besides, increasing need for online streaming services in flights and ongoing advancement in connectivity technologies are estimated to augur well for the global market.

How is the Rising Number of Air Passengers Driving the In-flight Entertainment & Connectivity Market Growth?

Increasing usage of internet-enabled PEDs and the willingness of passengers to pay more for in-flight services are anticipated to bolster the global in-flight entertainment & connectivity market growth in the upcoming years. Rising number of air passengers with the availability of relatively low cost flight tickets and high disposable income in both developed and developing countries is also projected to contribute to the growth.

As per the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in 2019, the total number of passengers that were carried on scheduled services reached 4.5 billion worldwide, while the number of departures rose to 38.3 million in the same year. These numbers are expected to grow at a rapid pace in the forecast period, thereby propelling the market.

Which Factors May Obstruct the In-flight Entertainment & Connectivity Market Growth?

The installation cost of in-flight entertainment & connectivity systems is very high as it requires extensive research and development activities, as well as premium-quality components.

In addition to that, in emerging economies, such as Nepal, India, China, and Pakistan, the majority of the airlines are either ultra-low-cost or low-cost carriers. Prominent airlines based in these countries thus provide only economy seating to their passengers. These factors may hamper the sales of in-flight entertainment & connectivity systems in the evaluation period.

How is the Need for Premium Content Boosting the North America In-flight Entertainment & Connectivity Market?

North America is likely to lead in future years by accounting for the largest in-flight entertainment & connectivity market share. The high penetration rate of these systems in regional airlines, especially in the U.S. and Canada is expected to bolster the market.

Besides, some of the renowned airlines, such as United Airlines, Inc. and Delta Air Lines, Inc. are persistently striving to provide premium content via Wi-Fi, as well as to offer tablets to passengers onboard. The increasing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) across North America is another vital factor that is projected to enable airlines to eliminate the need to install back-seat screens, thereby reducing the overall weight of the aircraft.

Is the Launch of New Air Routes Pushing the Asia Pacific In-flight Entertainment & Connectivity Market?

Asia Pacific is expected to showcase exponential growth in the assessment period with the increasing passenger traffic across developing countries, such as India and China. It is further set to create a high demand for next-generation entertainment and connectivity technologies in aircraft.

Moreover, some of the well-known airlines based in Asia Pacific are likely to provide contemporary In-flight entertainment and connectivity systems to first-class passengers. The opening of new air routes from major countries in Asia Pacific is also projected to bolster growth.

In June 2022, for instance, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport Mumbai and LOT Polish Airlines jointly celebrated the introduction of the latest non-stop service between Mumbai and Warsaw. All guests will be able to enjoy various services and amenities, including personal in-flight entertainment systems featuring Bollywood classics and blockbusters. These new launches across Asia Pacific are expected to drive the demand for in-flight entertainment & connectivity services.
