Global Aircraft Communication System Market is valued approximately USD 3.8 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 11% over the forecast period 2019-2026. Aircraft communication systems are used for transmission of messages between ground station and aircrafts by using air band radios or satellites. Aircraft communication systems are collection of transmission systems, individual communication networks, relay stations, data terminal equipment (DTE), and tributary stations. Prior to these systems, the communication between airplanes and stations was done through analog systems or high-frequency radio waves. Currently, communication is done through modern technologies such as satellite plus, mobile communication and also at times through broadband networks. Some of the products utilized in the system are, , HF Communication, VHF/UHF/L-Band, Data Link, SATCOM and also many others. Growth in the commercial airplanes owing to increasing air passenger travel is the key factor driving the aircraft communication system market. Rising consumer spending along with increasing preference towards air travel owing to superior safety and increasing disposable income will further fuel the market demand. As per world bank organization, across the globe, the number of air passengers were 3.7 billion in 2016 which increased to 3.9 billion in 2017 and further to 4.23 billion in 2018. Further, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) projected that passenger numbers could double to 8.2 billion in 2037. The commercial aircraft segment accounted for a major share of the aircraft communication systems market during the base year. This is due to the comparatively higher number of deliveries of commercial aircraft than that of military aircraft. As according to the general Aviation Manufacturers (GAMA) there were more than 440 thousand general aviation aircraft across the globe in 2018. Hence the growing commercial aircrafts across the globe demands extensive use of Aircraft communication systems for efficient and safe air travel. Moreover, increasing military spending and growing advancements in the Defense sector further fuel the market growth. As these Communication systems are an integral part of the Military aircrafts for sending information about the target. However, high initial investment and elongated approval period impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2026. Although, with the transforming technology connected devices in the aircraft communication systems are playing an important role of providing centralized access to multiple electronic devices. This presents a lucrative opportunity for the market growth.
