Aircraft communication system is a collection of transmission systems, relay stations, data terminal equipment (DTE), individual communication networks, and tributary stations. The system is used for transmission of messages between aircraft and ground stations by using airband radios and satellites. Prior to these systems, the communication between stations and airplanes is done through analog systems or high-frequency radio waves. Currently, communication is done by modern technologies such as mobile communication, satellite plus, and also at times through broadband networks. Some of the products utilized in the system are VHF/UHF/L-Band, HF Communication, Data Link, SATCOM, and many others. Growth in commercial airplanes due to increasing air passenger travel is the key factor driving the aircraft communication system market.
According to the study, “Global Aircraft Communication System Market to reach USD 7.89 billion by 2026” the key companies operating in the global aircraft communication system market are Harris Corporation, General Dynamics Corporation, Cobham PLC, Northrop Grumman Corporation, L3 Technologies, Raytheon Technologies, Iridium Corporation, Thales Group, Rockwell Collins, and Honeywell International Inc.
Based on product type, the aircraft communication system market is segmented as HF Communication (High-Frequency range of 2 MHz to 30 MHz), VHF (Very High-Frequency range of 30 to 300 MHz), SATCOM (SATellite COMmunications), and Data Link Communication. SATCOM aircraft communication system is typically offered by various communication centers that interconnect ground-based communication amenities with suitably equipped aircraft. The communication services consist of the relay of radio calls by radio operators or automatic call connecting to phone lines by a telephone gateway. Based on components, the market is segmented as antennas, receivers, transmitters, transceivers, and others. In addition, based on aircraft type, the market is segmented as military aircraft and commercial aircraft. Both military and commercial aircraft include rotary-wing, fixed-wing, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
The aircraft communication system market is driven by a rise in demand for the satellite-based navigation system, followed by growth in technological advancements in an aircraft communication system, an increase in aircraft deliveries, and a rise in the use of software-defined radio for satellite communication. However, the high initial investment and elongated approval period may impact the market. Moreover, the increase in demand for Next-Generation IP Systems, the rise in use of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Technology in an aircraft communication system, and the Commercialization of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are key opportunities for the market.
Based on geography, the North-American region dominates the global aircraft communication system market owing to well-developed aircraft communication systems and the presence of various innovative technologies in the region. Whereas, the Asian-Pacific and European regions are expected to depict a higher growth rate due to a rise in disposable income coupled with an increase in government initiatives being taken towards the improvement of various technologies by emerging economies such as China and India over the forecast period. In the upcoming years, it is estimated that the future of the global market will be brightly caused by an increase in the number of travelers during the forecast period. The global aircraft communication system market is valued at approximately US $3.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 11% over the forecast period 2019 to 2026.
