Global aircraft seating market stood at USD5,147.06 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5.60%, in value terms, over the next five years to reach USD 7,074.30 million by 2026, on the back of growing passenger air travel, need for lightweight and durable seats, and the increasing rate of replacement of existing aircraft fleets across the world. To make the flying experience finer, aircraft manufacturers are increasingly mounting up better quality cabin seats which are lighter in weight and are built of superior quality. These cabin seats reduce the overall weight of the aircraft without compromising on safety standards for the passengers travelling in the aircraft. The reduced weight of the aircrafts helps the aircraft to run economically for larger distances, making the flight experience affordable for masses.

Apart from the reduced weight of aircraft seats, the demand for cabin seats which are technologically advanced is also increasing. These advanced system seats enrich the flight experience of travellers by allowing the users to watch movies, listen to music and gives user access to the internet. The internet access allows the users to shop online while travelling in air, as well as help working professionals to make business decisions when needed during air travel. The expanding global economy and increasing consumer spending is also making the air travel affordable for the passengers, as a result the demand for passenger economy seats aircraft seats have increased in recent years. Due to the increasing demand of economy air travel, most airlines are increasing the number of passenger economy seats in their aircrafts, thus driving the sales of the aircraft cabin seats around the world. Due to the rise in passenger air travel and increasing safety concerns for passengers travelling by air, the rate of replacements of existing aircraft seats have increased in the past decade, driving the global aircraft seating market at a rapid rate. Apart from the existing airlines, new airlines are increasingly entering the global commercial aircraft market, increasing the need for aircraft seats across the globe and is aiding the global aircraft seating market to grow even further.

The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has created both a public health crisis and an economic crisis across the world. With passenger air traffic put to halt, global air travel has been predominantly affected due to the pandemic. As a result, there has been a steep decline in net orders of aircraft and consequently passenger aircraft seats globally in 2020. Nevertheless, the market is showing positive signs of recovery, because of which global aircraft seating market is expected to recover from the COVID-19 impact in around 3 years.

Some of the major players operating globally in aircraft seating market are Safran (Zodiac Aerospace), Collins Aerospace, Recaro Aircraft Seating Company, Jamco corporation, Geven S.p.A. Apart from these organizations, companies like Stelia Aerospace, Acro Aircraft Seating, HAECO Aircraft seating, Pitch Aircraft Seating systems, Avio Interiors are also increasing their marketing activities and enriching product portfolio across the globe to increase their customer outreach.
