Narrowbody Aircrafts to Exhibit Wider Presence on Global Revenues through 2026
With respect to the type of aircraft, narrrowbody aircrafts are expected to account for largest share on global aircraft seating market revenues throughout the forecast period. Airline companies around the world are predominantly using narrowbody aircrafts, which is compelled the manufacturers to shift their focus. Aircraft seats designed for narrowbody jets are developed by taking space optimization into consideration. Over the forecast period, seats sold for narrowbody aircrafts are expected to record fastest sales in the global market, registering an estimated CAGR of 13.6%. On the other hand, small passenger widebody aircrafts are also expected to account for a considerable share on global market value. In 2017, over US$ 1 Bn worth of aircraft seats sold in the global market were fitted in small passenger widebody aircrafts.
Economy Class Seating to Remain Lucrative for Manufacturers
For aircraft seating manufacturers, higher sales of first class seats guarantee high profit margins. However, limited seating capacity of first class curbs the overall profits for companies. During the forecast period, a majority of companies are expected to focus on increasing the production of aircraft seats for economy class. By the end of 2026, more than two-third of revenues procured in the global aircraft seating market will be accounted by the sales of economy class aircraft seats.
