Based on end use, the aircraft seat upholstery aftermarket is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increasing frequency of maintenance and replacement of seat upholstery for providing good seating comfort to passengers. Generally, commercial airlines change their seat upholstery after every four to five years, owing to the wear and tear of seat covers over time. Based on aircraft type, the wide-body aircraft (WBA) segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Wide-body aircraft have a higher demand for interiors as compared to narrow-body aircraft (NBA) because there is more space to install wide seats and other cabin interior products. Thus, major airlines operating wide-body aircraft are focusing on upgrading their interiors, thereby, providing a better and more comfortable experience to their passengers.
Based on material type, the fabric segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Fabrics are used majorly in seat covers for economy class and premium economy class. With the rise in low-cost carriers, there is a rise in air passengers traveling in economy and premium economy class across the world. This is driving the demand for fabrics owing to their good seating comfort and good absorption of perspiration property.
Based on seat type, the premium economy class segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. There is a growing trend of business travelers shifting their preference to premium economy class seats, as the tickets are cheaper compared to business class seats. Owing to more legroom in premium economy class as compared to economy class seats, there is a rise in the number of passengers traveling in premium economy class. Thus, major airlines are focusing on increasing seating comfort of their premium economy class.
Based on region, the aircraft seat upholstery market has been segmented into 5 regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific is estimated to account for the largest share of the aircraft seat upholstery market in 2019. However, the market in the Middle East is expected to grow significantly due to the rise in air passenger traffic in countries such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Major airlines in these countries have been focusing on new and innovative cabins and upholstery to provide exceptional comfort to their first-class passengers.
