Global Aircraft Curtains Market to 2025 - Featuring Belgraver, Botany Weaving & Lantal Textiles Among Others - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Aircraft Curtains Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The aircraft curtains market is anticipated to record a CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period.

Airlines are focusing on maintaining their brand images and capturing the lucrative business traveler segment. Cabin retrofitting activities are driven by the consumer demand for quick and reliable cabin connectivity, personalized entertainment systems, handsfree commands, micro-cabin environment, cabin air quality, medical care services, and self-cleaning and anti-bacterial materials. Moreover, the increased profits have allowed discretionary spending by airlines on features, such as larger overhead bins, comfortable seats, and custom thematic experiences. Airlines are considering the passenger's perspective to determine methods by which they can offer the best possible in-flight experience.

However, the market may be deterred by the stringent guidelines that need to be strictly adhered to, while designing the cabin and other associated components of an aircraft. Europe and the United States adhere to the FAR/CS 25.853 regulation, which states that the fire must not spread more than 43.2 centimeters from the source. This necessitates the use of flame-retardant fabrics on cabin layout, including seat covers, carpets, curtains, and wall coverings.

Key Market Trends

Focus on Passenger Comfort Boosting the Aircraft Cabin Retrofitting Activities

Since the airlines are focusing on projecting their brand images among passengers, cabin retrofitting and restyling have emerged as viable solutions for airline operators to offer differentiated services and achieve the correct balance between cost and aesthetics. They fit curtains to separate travel classes in an aircraft cabin. Hence, operators are increasingly retrofitting their fleets as cost-effective solutions over procuring new aircraft. The retrofitting activities of old aircraft cabins range from individual seats to entire cabins.

American Airlines is currently engaged in a modernization plan to standardize its fleet. It includes stripping out the main cabin economy seats and replacing them with premium economy seats that are wider and offer more legroom. As these seats command higher fares than the main economy seats, the airline can offer customers superior services. Moreover, the need to differentiate between the service levels offered within different classes by airline operators adds to the level of personalization in aircraft cabins. The trend is also observed among smaller LCCs, which are keenly investing in cabin retrofitting, in order to add more value to their customized offerings.

Europe to Bolster the Market Prospects During the Forecast Period

Though Asia-Pacific is anticipated to witness the highest number of aircraft deliveries during the forecast period, Europe is expected to observe a major growth in the aircraft curtains market. As Western European economies have well-developed aviation markets, the region is witnessing a high penetration rate of advanced cabin layouts that offer distinctive features in different aspects of air travel, such as safety and comfort. The growth of the aircraft curtains market can also be attributed to the cabin retrofitting activities undertaken by airline operators for offering modern amenities and designs to travelers, helping the airlines be at par with competitors' latest-generation aircraft while incurring comparatively minimal costs.

The European market is highly competitive, with current trends indicating a consolidation among independent MRO operators in the region. The increasing partnerships between airline cabin MROs and OEMs have enabled the latter to penetrate the cabin retrofitting industry in Europe, which indicates a decline in market opportunities for independent cabin retrofitting service providers. Airbus is focusing on developing in-house capabilities for cabin upgrades as part of its diversified vision to have a broader role in the complete lifecycle of the aircraft and not remain limited to production. Moreover, the inability or failure of certain suppliers in the aircraft interiors industry, to deliver their products as per the specified quality and deadline, has encouraged OEMs to enter the cabin modification business to ensure the proper functioning of the regional aviation ecosystem.
