Connected Aircraft Market
Global Connected Aircraft Market by Type (Systems, Solutions), Application (Commercial, Military), Aircraft Type (Fixed-Wing, Rotary-Wing), Connectivity (Inflight, Air-To-Ground, Aircraft-To-Aircraft), Frequency Band (Ka-, Ku-, L-), & Region –Forecast to 2023

The Global Connected aircraft market projected to register a CAGR around 16% from 2017 to 2023.

Connected aircraft is designed to facilitate air passengers with in-flight entertainment by providing high-quality audio, video, games, flight details, music, movies, radio, and news. Furthermore, it assists in providing flight safety instructions in local languages. This will benefit the passengers in terms of comfort, reduce pilot and flight crew workload, cut maintenance time and costs, and lower the overall cost of ownership. Passengers can directly get connected to broadcast satellite and have access to international news and GPS maps; this is expected to drive the globally connected aircraft market. Of late, modern aircraft are integrated with data-centric architectures to capture real-time information. As a result, the aircraft operates as a mode to capture gigabytes of data from take-off to landing, which assists in improving the safety and efficiency of the aircraft, thus, increasing the connected aircraft market demand.
