The cockpit display market is expected to surge with a CAGR of 9.72% to achieve a market size of US$36.022 billion by 2027, up from US$18.818 billion in 2020.

Cockpit display systems provide the visual presentation of the data and information to the pilot (in the case of an aircraft) and crew members in order to enable the pilot to fly the aircraft safely and successfully complete the mission. It provides an interface between the aircraft sensors and the pilot to provide information regarding the primary flight information, navigation information, engine data, airframe data, or warning information. The growing aerospace industry is one of the major drivers of the global cockpit display market.

Cockpit displays are widely used in civil and military transports, trainers, fighters, helicopters, special surveillance aircraft, and many other applications. Also, the growing automotive industry is fueling the market demand in the forecast period. Furthermore, technological advancements resulting in the manufacturing of next-generation cockpit display systems are augmenting the market growth in the forecast period. Even though the cockpit refers to the flight deck, the use of cockpit displays is widely seen in cars, trains, and commercial vehicles.

By geography

On the basis of geography, North America and Europe are expected to hold a significant market share due to the adoption of early technological innovations, in addition, to having a robust military industry, especially in the North American region. Currently, the United States is leading the global aerospace and defense industry. On the other hand, the Asia Pacific region will witness a high market growth rate and is assumed to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period due to the presence of a large consumer base with the increasing volume of air passenger traffic, especially in the emerging economies of India and China. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimates APAC is considered to be the biggest driver of air passenger demand during the period 2015 to 2035. Nearly 50% of the new air passengers are likely to come from this region. In the near future, by 2024, China is expected to replace the United States as the world’s major aviation market. India from the APAC region is expected to replace the United Kingdom, ranking third by 2025. While Indonesia and Japan will be ranked in the 5th and 7th positions respectively in the global aviation market.

Share of the market in South-East Asia

Additionally, with the increasing defence expenditure of South-East Asian countries, the market for cockpit displays shows immense potential to thrive in the forecast period. Furthermore, with the growing automotive industry, the market is projected to grow at a significant pace. In 2016, Thailand was the largest automotive producer in Southeast Asia. According to the Thailand Automotive Institute estimates, the country increased its automotive production (passenger cars, one-ton pickups, and commercial car) from 1.88 million units in 2014 to 1.94 million units in 2016. The country expects to boost its production to around 3.5 million units by 2020.

Global multinational firms are working on gaining market share with the growing consumer demand for safety, comfort, advanced technologies in vehicles, and fuel efficiency. With a large consumer base and a rapidly rising middle-class population, these multinationals are bolstering their brands in the Asia Pacific region, further fueling the market’s growth in the forecast period. Moreover, with advancements in technology in logistics fleet management, advanced operations will help in better fleet management in order to satiate consumer demands in the growing e-commerce industry.

The growing aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is fueling the market demand in the forecast period.

The global aerospace and defense industries are continuing to soar with the growing air passenger industry. Additionally, growing global military spending is continuing to surge due to the increased border security threats, so the industry is projected to experience sustainable growth in the forecast period as well. This has further created a need where governments are required to increase their defence budgets. The increasing manufacturing and production of commercial aircraft are further adding to the industry’s growth with the increasing air traffic. In the commercial aerospace sector, the demand for next-generation aircraft remains high along with the demand for the installation of advanced technologies, fueling the market demand for state-of-the-art cockpit displays for improved communication and navigation.

Moving on to the defense sector, where heightened global tensions, geopolitical risks, and high defence spending by regional powers other than the USA including China, India, and Japan are anticipated to augment the growth of the global defense sector in the forecast period. The increase in defence expenditure would assist in creating opportunities for defence contractors and their supply chains the fulfilment of the growing demand and improve production yields. Also, the defence companies should be able to adapt in accordance with the changing demands, which include the introduction of novel technologies such as digital technologies. In the commercial space sector, steady investments are being made in novel and existing space technologies and services, with significant funding arising from the government and venture capital. With an increased focus on the modernization of military missions, the market is propelled to grow in the forecast period. Due to the ASAT threats, the United States, which comprises the major revenue share of the global aerospace and defense revenue, increasing investments in research and development are being made.

Furthermore, with the growing automation, the advent of the automated flight deck provides an opportunity for many commercial aircraft manufacturers who are increasingly dependent on automated flight controls. The commercial aerospace sector is aiming to shift to a fully automated flight deck, thus reducing the number of crew members in the cockpit and contributing to lower airline costs.  The installation of an automated cockpit is proving to be an effective solution with the growing air transport demand and low-cost airline expansion.

Key Developments

  • November 2021: As per the November 2021 press release by Collins Aerospace, Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF) AeroAsia collaborated with Collins Aerospace to upgrade the avionics on the C-130H Hercules military transport aircraft of the Indonesian Air Force (IDAF).

Impact of COVID-19 on the Cockpit Display Market

Governments and aviation-related industries were compelled to enact a number of strict measures to stop the COVID-19 virus's spread. In 2020, airports and air travel virtually stopped, which resulted in a drop in airport use and revenue losses for the aviation sector globally. Since the aviation sector places a high value on the health, safety, and well-being of both passengers and employees, airports and airlines have worked with governments to get ready for the resumption of global connection as and when the situation permitted. As worldwide vaccination campaigns went effective, more and more people started to travel by air and outside of their home nations. With the reopening of commercial airlines and the pressing need for military aircraft, demand for products like Glass Cockpits for air travel is on the rise. These components are essential for the operation of aircraft in both the military and commercial sectors. And thus, the market for glass cockpits is anticipated to surge in the forecasted period.
