Aircraft Seat Market size and Key Trends in terms of volume and value 2017 – 2027

Aircraft seat is an indispensable component of passenger based aircraft spanning short distance as well as long distance travel since the inception of aviation industry. The product has witnessed numerous developments in the field of design. Guidelines related to aircraft safety and seat spacing set by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) strictly focuses on safety rather than comfort and robustness of aircraft seats during the clash or emergency and easy evacuation of passengers. However, comfort of service has become an important issue with rapid technology development owing to long distance air travel which may cause both psychological and physiological discomfort to boarded passengers. Sleeping is one of the common activity during the long haul flight which makes passenger comfort a major factor in user’s acceptance of transportation systems. The passenger comfort is dependent on environment and different features during air travel, thus making seat comfort as a subjective issue. Aviation industry being highly competitive makes airlines to maximize the number of seats which results in a very limited amount of seating space for passengers. Furthermore, to make aircraft seat more comfortable, materials with good corrosion resistance, machinability & formability, high mechanical strength, low density to reduce weight, and significant extensions to avoid brittle fracture are taken into consideration. Moreover, with keeping safety as their first priority, many airliners are now focusing on emphasizing cabin designs offering passengers more options for work and leisure through premium seats with more space and entertainment systems.
