Code: BMIRE00026189 | Pages: 100 | Industry: Aerospace and Defense | Date: Sep 2022 | Type: Global

The market is expected to cross US$ 2.27 billion in 2022 and is projected to hit US$ 3.83 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

Vendors Focusing on Removal of Paper-Based Information to Drive the Market Growth.

Several aviation OEMs are majorly focusing on the removal of paper-based traditional information methods and systems is driving the electronic flight bag market growth. The vendors across this market are collaborating with aircraft OEMs to understand their requirements and develop reliable solutions for them. For instance, in December 2020, Airbus announced that it has removed all paper-based information, performance tables, graphs, and associated information from the Flight Crew Operating Manual (FCOM). Similarly, in December 2021, Airbus removed all performance paper-based information from Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) and Master Minimum Equipment List (MMEL) to o fully establish EFB-based operations as standard on A320/A330/A340 family of aircraft models. 

Moreover, Commercial aircraft segment is expected to dominate the electronic flight bag market in 2022 as well. This is owing to the rising commercial aircraft fleet and deliveries worldwide that is leading to increasing demand for electronic flight bag (EFB) solutions for deployment in those aircrafts. Currently, almost all types of commercial aircraft use electronic flight bag (EFB) for their flight crew and cockpit operations. The rising commercial aircraft operations and upgrades is likely to generate new market opportunities for market vendors during the forecast period.

Within the report, the electronic flight bag market is segmented into component, application, technology, end user, and geography. By component, the electronic flight bag market is segmented into hardware and software. Based on application, the electronic flight bag market is segmented into e-documents, charts, video surveillance, airport moving maps, and others. Based on technology, the electronic flight bag market is segmented into portable and fixed. Based on end user, the market is segmented into commercial aircraft, military aircraft, and general aviation. Geographically, the electronic flight bag market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.

Software Upgrades to Provide Future Opportunities for Market Vendors During the Forecast Period.

The rising deployment of EFBs is also generating demand for software upgrades and installation across different aircraft models. Moreover, the rising upgrades of old-existing fleet of commercial aircrafts is another major factor to provide future opportunities for electronic flight bag market players during the forecast period. Several airlines are taking initiatives to transform their respective operations to paperless operations. This is boosting the deployment of EFBs for electronic operations and thereby catalyzing the demand for software deployment and upgrades. For instance, in July 2022, Vistara Airlines an Indian service carrier announced the deployment of e-tech logbook solutions across its aircraft fleet and converted its full-operations into paperless operations while deploying the ULTRAMAIN EFB solution. Such developments are likely to generate future opportunities for market vendors during the forecast period. 

Adoption of Portable EFB Solutions across General Aviation and Military Aircraft Platforms Driving the Electronic Flight Bag Market Growth.

The rising general aviation and military aircraft deliveries and their fleet size worldwide is another major factor propelling the electronic flight bag market growth. Also, the deployment of portable EFB systems across general aviation and military transport aircraft carriers is also generating new opportunities for electronic flight bag market players across the world which is also driven by rising general aviation and military aircraft fleet. For instance, according to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), in 2021 around 527 turboprop airplanes were delivered worldwide compared to 443 units in 2020. Moreover, Airbus delivered around 325 military aircraft worldwide compared to 90 aircraft in 2020. Such instances are catalyzing the deployment of EFBs for general aviation and military aircraft segments and driving the electronic flight bag market growth.
