Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Autopilot Systems Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global autopilot systems market to grow at a CAGR of 6.78% over the period 2014-2019.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global autopilot systems market for the period 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from autopilot systems solutions, software, applications, services, support, and maintenance.

The autopilot landing system enables secure landing during harsh weather conditions and limited visibility. It is based on a microcontroller and helps pilots to land safely on sea surfaces, in deserts, and in difficult climate zones. Various sensors in the microcontroller system are used for safer landing in degraded environments such as a brownout or whiteout and in night operations. The system includes distance measurement and autopilot landing, unlike the manual system where only distance measurement is included. All these benefits help to increase demand for autopilot landing systems in the market.

According to the report, a rise in the number of aircraft and marine vehicles has led to an increase in demand for the automation of processes to reduce human error and ensure accurate navigation. The introduction of modern technologies such as intelligent software systems in aviation industries has helped increase efficiency. Automation enables the completion of a job, which affects the “operator” whose task shifts from being the “performer” to being the “process checker.” The automation of processes will foster market growth during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that a rise in demand for the automation of software systems will trigger market growth.
