The aircraft sensors market was valued at US$ 2,718.0 million in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.38% during the forecast period 2023-2033.
Technological advancement to positively impact market
Technological advancements in the sensor industry is anticipated to strongly contribute to the growth of the aircraft sensors market. The strong forecast for deliveries and repair & maintenance activities on ageing aircrafts over the coming years is also anticipated to augment the demand for sensors in the aviation sector. Apart from these factors, the increasing military and defence budgets is anticipated to augment the demand for jets, UAVs, and rotary-wing aircraft. IoT sensor technology is increasingly being adopted in the aviation industry to continuously monitor inflight aircraft to develop more effective predictive and preventive maintenance. This leads to fewer aircraft failures and downtime and more reliable and efficient operations. Airbus’ resilient, standardised wireless sensor network is helping clients reduce cabling and increase the number of sensors to be deployed on the aircraft providing an opportunity for the aircraft sensor market growth. Wireless sensors are increasingly being developed for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters to facilitate effective preventive maintenance.
How has COVID-19 had a Significant Negative Impact on the Aircraft Sensors Market?
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic brought about significant supply chain challenges and a shortage of labour. The price of raw materials such as nickel, titanium, and other metals in sensor production increased owing to an increase in labour and freight costs for material transportation. Additionally, the operating results of manufacturers were affected in 2020 due to a reduction in the global demand for commercial air travel due to regional restrictions and airport closures to maintain passenger and crew safety, resulting in lower demand for new aircraft impacting aircraft production and the integration of sensors.

What are the Current Market Drivers?
Growing Tourism Industry to Indirectly contribute to market growth
The expanding tourism industry is expected to provide a boost to the adoption of aircraft sensors strengthening the market growth. Commercial aircraft are widely used for inter-continent travel. According to the United States World Tourism Organization's (UNWTO) Tourism Recovery Tracker, there is a strong demand for air travel post-pandemic, with air seat capacity on international routes reaching 62% of 2019 levels in January-August 2022. The growing trend of long-haul travel, cultural tourism, medical tourism, sports and adventure holidays, and ecotourism among others is boosting demand for aircraft. Medical tourism is also on a rise in recent years with a large number of people traveling from a developed to a less developed country on account of the low cost of treatments in the developing country.
Increasing Defence Spending on Military Aircraft
Owing to rising security threats governments across the globe are investing in sophisticated fighter jets to safeguard their citizens and to replace their aging aircraft. For instance, in March 2022 Germany announced the purchase of 35 U.S. F-35 fighter jets to replace its aging Tornado. In July 2022, the U.S. Department of Defense reached a handshake agreement with Lockheed Martin Corp to develop around 375 F-35 fighter jets over three years. Sensors are crucial during combat to help the pilot to make crucial decisions on time. Sensors such as electro-optical and infrared systems housed under a plane’s wing, record video in visible and infrared light and furnishes it on cockpit displays providing real-time situational awareness and helping the pilots to locate, fix and destroy enemy targets. Therefore, increasing spending on military and defence activities is expected to augment market growth
Where are the Market Opportunities?
Advancement of Aircraft Sensors to Optimise Aircraft Performance
IoT sensor technology is increasingly being adopted in the aviation industry to continuously monitor inflight aircraft to develop more effective predictive and preventive maintenance. This leads to fewer aircraft failures and downtime and more reliable and efficient operations. Airbus’ resilient, standardised wireless sensor network is helping clients reduce cabling and increase the number of sensors to be deployed on the aircraft providing an opportunity for the aircraft sensor market growth. Wireless sensors are increasingly being developed for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters to facilitate effective preventive maintenance. These sensors are anticipated to help operators improve aircraft control, lower maintenance costs, reduce fuel consumption and enhance passenger comfort. Wireless sensor nodes can be powered using thermoelectric generators removing the need to charge batteries periodically or replace them.
