Aircraft Switches Market to Reach USD 2.60 Billion by 2028; Surging Development of Human-machine Interface Designs to Bolster Growth, says Fortune Business Insights™

Pune, India, June 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global aircraft switches market is set to gain momentum from the urgent need to reduce a pilot’s workload and surge automation by creating human-machine interface (HMI) designs in next-generation commercial and military aircraft. For instance, in September 2020, Curtiss-Wright announced its plan to deliver a vehicle Ethernet switch and a USFF flight control computer for the air taxi program. These will be included in the flight test stage. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a report, titled, “Aircraft Switches Market, 2021-2028.” As per the report, the market size is projected to grow from USD 2.01 billion in 2021 to USD 2.60 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 3.71% in the forecast period. It stood at USD 1.87 billion in 2020.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Termination of New Orders & Travel Bans Have Affected Growth

In countries, such as China, France, India, and the U.S., lockdown measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic have created disruptions in the supply chain of aircraft and its components. The delay in the delivery and production of aircraft has also impacted the market negatively. TE Connectivity, for instance, declared that its net sales in 2020 was USD 12.2 billion, which is a 10% drop compared to 2019. Also, travel bans and the cancellation of new aircraft orders would affect the demand for aircraft type of switches amid the pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints-

Usage of Fly-by-wire Systems Backed by High Demand for Lightweight Aircraft to Aid Growth

Nowadays, the demand for fly-by-wire systems is surging rapidly because of the emergence of lightweight aircraft. These systems have numerous benefits, such as high reliability, effective control, and low weight. They can also manage flight control inputs provided by the pilot and transmit equivalent electrical signals via electrical switches to flight control actuators. In September 2020, for instance, Aerion Supersonic awarded a new contract to BAE Systems PLC to develop and design a fly-by-wire flight control system for the former’s AS2 supersonic business jet. Such factors are set to propel the aircraft switches market growth. However, the rising adoption of touchscreen control designs is expected to hamper the demand for manual switches for aircraft in the near future.
