An aircraft seat often consists of adjustable headrests, electronics and controls for in-flight entertainment systems, and seat adjustment. The commercial aircraft seats are usually arranged in rows across the aircraft’s fuselage. Depending on the type of aircraft and the airline, different configurations of seating layout are used. Also, based on the airline (LCC or FSC), seats are classified into different types, namely economy class, premium economy class, business class, and first class seats.

This report covers the current scenario and growth prospects of the Global Commercial Aircraft Seating market for the period 2015-2019. It provides a global overview, market shares, market segmentation by products, and growth prospects by region (the Americas and the EMEA and APAC regions).

The development and utilization of materials such as titanium for lightweight and optimized seat design are the upcoming trends witnessed in the market. Lightweight construction achieves the optimum ratio between payload and range of an aircraft and reduces fuel consumption. Various companies have launched lightweight seat designs to ensure low maintenance costs and enhanced durability.

According to the report, the market has grown significantly because of the growth of global air traffic and demand for new aircraft. In addition, modification and replacement of aircraft parts, including aircraft seats, is required at regular intervals because of the growing utilization of existing in-service aircraft. Denser seating configurations, with the addition of more seats per aircraft, have also led to market growth.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges faced by the market is the difficulties associated with introducing design innovations in aircraft seats. Aircraft seats have to go through rigorous testing and evaluation as they have to adhere to safety and certification requirements, which increases the cost of the product. Also, such design innovations may not receive support and backing from prominent players in the market.
