Aerospace and Defence Aircraft Switches Market

The Aircraft Switches Market is projected to grow at a CAGR 3.12% rate from 2021 by 2026. The growing demand for in-flight entertainment & connectivity (IFEC) has led to new and improved IFEC upgrades across many airline fleets. These upgrades involve new systems that are more interactive and contain manual electromechanical switches, as well as touch screen interfaces.The rotary wing segment expected to be largest contributor in aircraft switches market. The growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing air travel, the rise in disposable income of the middle-class population, and growing international trade & tourism across the globe. Manufacturers are currently focusing on aircraft switches components to develop products that are more reliable, accurate, and efficient. Continuous improvements in software have modified the human-machine interface of aircraft switches.


The cabin segment is projected to lead the aircraft switches market during the forecast period. Switches in an aircraft differ from aircraft to aircraft based on the type of aircraft. Important functions are performed through a panel of switches present in the cockpit dashboard. Pilots control components and systems such as fuel, engine, APU, lights, radio communication aids, and navigation aids, among others. Pilots perform functions such as starting the engines, controlling the electrical power supply to various systems, lights and switch between radio frequencies, selecting airspeed, control navigation computers, and many more critical functions needed during different flight phases such as take-off, landing, and taxi. Military aircraft contain ammunition control switches for combat purposes.


North America is expected to be the largest market for aircraft switches during the forecast period. The demand for commercial aircraft is continuously increasing, due to which aircraft manufacturers are expanding their product line, thereby creating a significant requirement for aircraft switches. Thus, increasing aircraft orders and supplies is a significant advantage for commercial aircraft switches market in the current scenario. Moreover, the trend of up gradation of existing/older aircraft is rapidly flourishing in the current commercial aircraft industry.

Key Market Players include Safran (France), Curtiss-Wright (US), Esterline Technologies (US), Honeywell (US), Meggitt (UK), and United Technologies Corporation (Collins Aerospace) (US).
