Aircraft Ignition System Market Analysis

The production of quadjets has been stopped due to lower demand caused during the pandemic, as well as environmental and sustainability concerns. In 2022, Boeing ended the production of B747 (one of the most popular commercial quadjets). Similarly, Airbus ended the production of A380 in 2021 due to the lower number of planes sold globally. The company delivered its last A380 fuselage to the assembly line in France in June 2020. This lowered the demand for aircraft ignition systems, thereby impacting the demand for ignition systems for such high power airplanes. Moreover, the Federal Aviation Administration has also put the hault on the production expansion of Boeing 737-9 MAX aircraft on The Boeing Company. Such factors have been restricted the growth of aviation industry in the past years.

Aircraft Ignition System Market Drivers and Opportunities

Growing Adoption of FADEC Systems

One of the main factors pushing the adoption of aircraft ignition system includes the rise in adoption of FADEC (Fully Full Authority Digital Engine Control) systems among the existing aircraft fleet and new aircraft models through their production. The FADEC system is used in an aircraft to decrease pilot’s workload by providing details on mechanical problems, as well as portrays engine monitoring capability. This autonomous, self-monitoring, self-operating, and redundant system enables the pilot to monitor fuel economy. It also helps in diagnostic processes that require constant monitoring of crucial processes in an aircraft powerplant, increasing fuel efficiency, and reducing maintenance expenses.

The FADEC system is developed to support both commercial and military aircraft. It is used in majority of aircraft engines, including CFM56-5A, CFM56-5B, CFM56-5C, CF6-80E, CFM56-7B, GE90-115B, and GEnx-1B, across different popular narrow-body and wide-body aircraft models, such as A330, A320, A318, A321, A340, B787, B777, and B737 series. It is a safety-critical system wherein adequate redundancy is configured to provide necessary reliability and availability. Some of the major companies that provide different FADEC solutions are FADEC International and Collins Aerospace. As the demand for FADEC systems is increasing, these players are creating alliances with other companies.

Modernization of Existing Aircraft Fleets

The modernization of existing fleets helps enhance their sustainability by reducing fuel consumption and carbon emission, thereby improving flight performance. The development of advanced electronics systems and computers is generating the need to replace the older electronics system in the aircraft models that are currently in use. Several countries are emphasizing the development and procurement of next-generation aircraft fleets to modernize and expand their fleets which is aiding the demand for advanced aircraft computer systems. For instance, in May 2021, Lufthansa Group modernized its fleet and purchased 10 highly efficient long-haul aircraft, with an aim to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs. In addition, in January 2022, the French Defense Procurement Agency received the sixth ATL2 Maritime Patrol Aircraft upgraded from standard 5 to standard 6. The aim of the above mentioned upgradation initiative was to develop new technologies and integrate them into tactical mission systems, sensor subsystems, and display consoles of existing aircraft, followed by restoring aircraft performance to peak levels. The upgradation of such advanced system emerges the need for technologically viable FADEC systems which is propelling the market growth over the forecast period.
