Aircraft seat upholstery is comprised of all fabrics, leather and foam used to manufacture comfortable, durable, safe and stylish seats for aircrafts. Companies are now offering customised upholstery in partnership with designers, engineers and craftsman ready to serve the needs of aircraft manufactures including OEM and aftermarket product / service providers. Partnership with designers is necessary to ensure that the materials are suitable for the designated purpose.

Companies are also focussing towards acquiring certification for special seat requirements to build credibility, gather larger market share and enhanced client base in the global aircraft seat upholstery market. For instance, in July 2018 Jet Aviation announced the construction of a hangar at their Basel headquarters which includes an ‘upgraded interior shop, drying rooms, a new soft goods area, and woodshop. Further, the facility got approved as an Upholsterer of Rockwell Collins (formerly B/E Aerospace) 16G seating which is the only approved 16G seating centre in Asia.

Increase in the number of new aircraft sales, rising modernization programs of existing aircraft fleet and advancements in fabric technology are some of the major factors driving the growth of the global aircraft seat upholstery market. However, regulatory frameworks and certification standards with a shortage in the number of seat suppliers are expected to inhibit the growth of the market in the near future.

Aircraft seating upholstery is primarily categorized into three major segments which include material, aircraft type, and seat type. Material segments include sub-segments such as natural fabric, polyester, wool/nylon blend, vinyl, and leather. Aircraft Type covered are narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, business jets, regional transport aircraft, helicopters, and general aviation aircraft. Seat type includes first-class, business class, premium economy class and economy class.

Given existing economic uncertainties in the Eurozone and continuing indecision about how the US will tackle its growing fiscal deficit, travel growth levels in developed countries will remain stagnant. Developing markets in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East should continue to serve as the main catalyst for this upward trend. The demand for air travel particularly from new emerging markets will see the global airline fleet experienced extraordinary growth over the next decade.

Some of the major companies operating in the global aircraft seat upholstery market are Lantal Textiles AG, Franklin Products , Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH, Fenice Care System S.P.A., Acc Interiors , International Aero Services, Perrone Aerospace , J.H. Nunn Associates, Spectra Interior Products, Tritex Corporation , Aerotex Aircraft Interiors, Omnavia Interiors, Tapis Corp , Aircraft Interior Products, and Douglass Interior Products. These companies are taking various strategic initiatives such as mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships to increase their presence in the global market.
