Aircraft seat upholstery is comprised of all fabrics, leather and foam used to manufacture comfortable, durable, safe and stylish seats for aircrafts.

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.
