• Frost Radar—Global Commercial Avionics Market, 2021
    A benchmarking system to spark companies to action—innovation that fuels new deal flow and growth pipelines

    Research Overview

    With the COVID-19 pandemic severely hampering demand for air travel, the global aircraft utilization rate has declined steeply. This utilization rate is highest for narrow-body aircraft followed by regional jets, wide-body aircraft, and turboprop aircraft, which signifies that air travel demand for short-haul routes is higher than for long-haul routes. Restrictions on cross-border travel and the drop in business trips are the prime factors contributing to low demand for long-haul routes.

    Avionics suppliers are working to update their legacy systems, such as the flight management system. They are monitoring mandates issued by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the two major regulatory agencies, to best plan for and invest in products that will allow for the opportunity to gain retrofit contracts.

    Leading commercial aircraft original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) generally prefer avionics solution providers that deliver comprehensive solutions that help their customers (airlines) gain strong aftermarket support. Significant investment is required to upscale their product offering for the commercial avionics market; therefore, scope is limited for small avionics companies to compete directly with the established players.
