At 3.0% CAGR, the South and Central Africa Aerospace and Military Fiber Optics Market is speculated to be worth US$ 266.95 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights
According to Business Market Insights’ research, the South and Central Africa aircraft interface device market was valued at US$ 218.22 million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 266.95 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 3.0% from 2021 to 2028. Rising in procurement of advanced communication system to strengthen communication security , increasing use in new and upgraded aircraft are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.
According to Airbus Market Forecast, the commercial aircraft fleet stood at 22,950 aircraft at the start of 2020, and it is expected to rise to 46,720 units by 2040. The manufacturers of commercial and general aviation aircraft are focused on technologically advanced solutions, such as advanced in-flight entertainment (IFE) and cabin interiors, robust avionics, and enhanced radar systems. The integration of such components with modern fleets is a prime factor catalyzing the procurement of fiber optics, such as cables and connectors. Further, the upgrading of existing commercial and general aviation aircraft fleets also plays a crucial role in driving the aerospace and military fiber optic market. Continuously flourishing customer-centric business models among commercial and general aviation aircraft owners are substantially boosting the IFE domain, which is propelling the installation of fiber optic cables and connectors. Military aircraft OEMs are incorporating electric warfare (EW) systems in various models, including fighter aircraft fleets, transport aircraft models, and surveillance aircraft fleets. Thus, the escalating production and delivery of defense aircraft models is one of the key forces boosting the aerospace fiber optic market. Lockheed Martin Corporation delivered 22 C-130 J and 142 F-35 models in 2021. The two models are technologically robust with electronic warfare capabilities. Similarly, Boeing delivered 21 electronic units of F/A-18 Hornet warfare aircraft in 2021. The rise in such aircraft deliveries is encouraging the aerospace and military fiber optic market players to scale up their production volumes.
