Increasing demand for new pilots across the globe is driving the market.
The simulators market is projected to grow from USD 21.5 billion in 2019 to USD 27.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Factors such as an increase in the demand for commercial aircraft pilots, acceptance of virtual pilot training to ensure aviation safety, and the need for cost-cutting in training are driving the market for simulators. However, the longer product lifecycle of simulators is limiting the overall growth of the market.

  • Based on application, the military training segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
  • Based on application, the military training segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. With continuous advancements in technologies related to simulation, operational costs of military training have reduced, thereby leading to the increased use of simulators in military training.
  • Based on type, the driving simulators segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Driving simulators helps train commercial and military drivers to develop their skills for live operations. These simulators can be used in cars, trucks, buses, trains & trams, as well as armored vehicles. The rise in demand for commercial vehicles across the globe is leading to an increase in demand for new commercial vehicle drivers, which, in turn, will fuel the demand for driving simulators to train them.

Asia Pacific led the simulators market in 2019 Asia Pacific is one of the potential markets for both, commercial and military simulators. An increase in passenger traffic is the major reason for increased demand for pilots, especially in countries such as India, Indonesia, South Korea, Australia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. An increase in air travel is a result of the rise in the economic status of the middle-class population and the introduction of low-cost carriers. According to Airbus, the training facilities present in the Asia Pacific region as of 2017 are only capable of training 5,000 pilot and aircrew members annually, whereas the requirement is expected to rise more in the next two decades. The expanding airlines in the region need more pilots to meet the demand for air traffic
