The aircraft cabin lighting market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 1.46 billion in 2017 to USD 2.00 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.48% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to factors, such as increased demand for interior light systems, as most of the airlines are upgrading their cabin interiors to increase efficiency and provide better service to passengers. However, the lack of profitable airlines in emerging economies is expected to restrain the growth of this market.
Based on end user, the aftermarket segment is projected to account for the larger share of the aircraft cabin lighting market during the forecast period.
Based on end user, the aftermarket segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the aircraft cabin lighting market in 2017. The aftermarket phase is one of the crucial phases of the aircraft cabin lighting market, as post-delivery retrofit modification is done by the airlines. All major companies are focusing on aftermarket and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services for cabin lighting.
Based on aircraft type, the wide body aircraft segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on aircraft type, the wide body aircraft segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
