The aviation industry is expanding quickly on a global scale. Modern airplanes are fitted with electrical equipment. Electronic sensors allow for precise feedback systems and simple control of aircraft systems. Sensors are used to measure a variety of factors, including control, navigation, and monitoring. As a result, avionics or electronic systems are crucial to modern aviation. Avionic systems include searchlights, sophisticated tactical systems for airborne early warning signals, and systems for communication, navigation, and display. There are sensors for flight instruments in every aircraft. Tachometers, engine temperature gauges, fuel, and oil quantity gauges, pressure gauges, altimeters, airspeed measurement meters, vertical speed indicators, and other types of gauges are among them.  A large number of these instruments and control sensors send extra messages to the cockpit's indicators, advising the pilots to take the necessary action and precautionary measures to avert any tragedy or accident.

The market for aircraft sensors is expanding as more sophisticated technology is being used for data sensing and safety.

For an aircraft to be controlled reliably and successfully, information on a variety of air circumstances as well as the integrity of numerous aviation gear and technologies is required. Numerous sensors continuously track these circumstances and transmit data to the onboard systems so they can process it prior to the operator observing it. Small devices called Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) combine actuators, sensors, and processors to create intelligent systems. MEMS's use in aircraft applications enhances performance and lengthens life with premium, economical features. Traditional flight control surfaces are removed, drag is decreased, and compressor, turbine, and overall aerodynamic performance may all be improved. The market has expanded as a result of rising aviation demand for MEMS technology. With the extent of knowledge and understanding needed for its operations, an aircraft's sensor count rises, which helps in the growth of the aircraft sensors market.

Key Developments

  • The INFINITE consortium announced in December 2022 its plans to embed wireless sensors as thin as a human hair into composite materials and aerospace components to monitor the condition of parts from manufacture to recycling with the aim of extending their life span, improving quality, and lowering cost. The consortium was supported by engineers from the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre's (AMRC, Catcliffe, U.K.) composites team. The sensors that will be utilized are built on magnetic materials and amorphous ferromagnetic microwires that can respond to electromagnetic radiation and will provide useful data on the state of the part at any moment.
  • Northrop showcased the in-flight integration of two of its most cutting-edge sensor and communication systems in December 2022, increasing the robustness and lethality of the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) platforms used by the US Army. During the demonstration, a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter used the Mini-Communications, Navigation, and Identification (Mini-CNI) and Re Scalable Aperture for Precision Targeting Radar (RAPTR) systems to transfer sensor data and communications to the ground. The RAPTR and Mini-CNI interacted while looking for and monitoring air targets, tools for manned-unmanned teaming, and long-range accurate fires.

North America holds a large portion of the aircraft sensors market, but over the course of the projection period, it is estimated that Asia Pacific will grow at the fastest rate.

The North American area develops and produces a wide range of aircraft systems. Some of the major corporations with their corporate headquarters in the United States include Honeywell, General Electric, and TE Connectivity.  Commercial, corporate, and military aircraft are being used more frequently in North America because of factors like the region's significant tourist industry, the high rate of immigration, working professionals, and the need to bolster air defence. As a result, airplanes are flying more often, which increases the demand for effective aviation sensors. 

However, due to planned commercial and regional aircraft programs and having the largest commercial aircraft fleet in the world, the Asia Pacific area is predicted to grow at the fastest rate over the next five years. China, India, and Japan are among the nations that are increasing their domestic aircraft production.

Due to its ability to identify abnormalities in proximity between the sensor and an item, proximity sensors are anticipated to have a sizable share of the aircraft sensor market throughout the forecast period.

A proximity sensor is a type of position sensor frequently used to detect an object's presence without making direct contact. They are the most widely used and economical options for detecting non-contact objects. Electromagnetic radiation is emitted by proximity sensors, which monitor changes in the return signal field. It transforms electrical impulses from object movement and presence. The ability of proximity sensors to be incorporated into many aircraft systems, such as power stabilizer actuation systems, flight controls, aircraft doors, cargo loading systems, and landing gear, is driving the need for them in the aerospace sector.
