The electro-mechanical segment of the aircraft seat actuation system market is estimated to be the fastest-growing type segment during the forecast period. Electro-mechanical actuators are lightweight and are designed to deliver precise movement of seats. This type of actuation systems is used in premium economy, business class seats and first-class seats. The demand for premium economy has increase in developing countries and most of the airlines in Asia Pacific region are providing premium economy seats which is directly fuel the demand for electro-mechanical system.
Based on seat class, the business class segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Business class and first class seats have various features, including adjustable headrests, reclining mechanism, electronics, control for in-flight entertainment systems, and massage and adjustable lumbar support. The increasing air passenger traffic and demand for premium class seating in aircraft are driving the growth of the business class segment of the aircraft seat actuation system market.
Based on aircraft type, the wide body aircraft segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increase in orders for wide body aircraft due to the increased demand for long-haul travel is one of the key factors driving this segment of the aircraft seat actuation system market. Wide body aircraft are installed with first class, business class, economy class, and premium economy class seats. Hence, the demand for advanced seat actuation systems is high in this segment. Wide body aircraft are also being retrofitted with advanced seating systems in the premium seating category.
Based on end user, the aftermarket segment of the aircraft seat actuation system market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The aftermarket sales of seat actuation systems depend on the regular retrofitting of aircraft seating as well as the replacement of spare parts during the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance of aircraft. North America and Europe are the largest markets for aftermarket aircraft seat actuation system. The airlines in these regions have a higher rate of usage of seats, and they are often retrofitted.
Middle East aircraft seat actuation market projected to grow at highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022
