The Aircraft Sensors Market is Projected to Grow From USD 3.8 Billion in 2019 to USD 4.9 Billion by 2025

Increase in demand for new aircraft is one of the most significant factors driving the aircraft sensors market.

This growth can be attributed to factors, such as an increase in demand for aircraft, increased investments in aircraft sensors industry by private equity groups, and advancements in aircraft sensors technologies, among others. However, regulations by aviation safety agencies pertaining to aircraft sensors are anticipated to restrain the growth of this market.

Aircraft sensors play a pivotal role in an aircraft as they provide vital inputs to all systems, which range from flight control systems to cabin environmental systems. Sensors are crucial for flight instrumentation systems as they constantly provide critical data to the onboard crew (pilots and cabin crew) for the safe operation of an aircraft.

Based on application, the aircraft sensors market has been segmented into engines; doors & slides; cabin & cargo environmental controls; flight decks & flight controls; landing gears; wheels & brakes; and fuel, hydraulic & pneumatic systems. Based on the platform, the market has been segmented into fixed-wing aircraft, rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This report provides a detailed study of the aircraft sensors market based on application, platform, sensor type, connectivity, and region. It offers a complete overview of each segment of the aircraft sensors market, along with a market size analysis.

The rise in demand for commercial aircraft, business jets, regional transport aircraft, and strategic UAVs across the globe, owing to increased air passenger traffic, and defence modernization programs are expected to fuel the growth of the aircraft sensors market during the forecast period.
