The importance of aircraft connectivity has arisen from the explosive growth in Wi-Fi enabled consumer electronic devices. Today, people regard Internet connectivity as an essential requirement, even whilst on the move, including in an aircraft cabin environment. Consumers are requiring connection for performing work tasks such as sending and answering email, or leisure activities such as updating social media or streaming content such as video and audio. For in-flight entertainment applications, the Internet is offering new opportunities for airlines in terms of passenger service. The challenge however, is to provide bandwidth capacity that can support high speed connections that match the quality of those on the ground, but in the air. Progress on this front is expected to continue with the launch and deployment of next generation, high throughput satellites from several leading satellite communications companies later this year.
Visiongain assesses that the top 15 connected aircraft account for the majority of the market. Aircraft connectivity is a relatively new sector and therefore, the market is currently heavily consolidated by a small number of players, the leaders of which occupy substantial shares. Many of these companies have already established robust positions in the aerospace and communications markets, particularly as aircraft system manufacturers and integrators and in-flight entertainment content and systems providers. These companies have the technological background and expertise to adapt products and services to accommodate the connectivity aspect. In the short term, it is likely that the structure of the market will present challenges to new entrants, particularly as existing players are already well established in their own right. However, with aircraft connectivity expected to grow significantly, there is the potential for the sector to open up more. It is also possible that this could also lead to further consolidation with new strategic partnerships and alliances based on previous activity. To supply connectivity, many OEMs require the services of satellite communication providers. Furthermore, satellite communication companies appear to be interested in expanding their presence and offering aircraft connectivity services, leading to substantial changes in the market dynamic.
This 422 page report comprehensively profiles the top 15 companies in the connected aircraft market, providing estimates of each company’s ranking according to connected aircraft market share and revenues.
