Commercial Aircraft Windows and Windshield Market Analysis, Growth, Trends And F

Posted by Nita on April 23rd, 2021

Aircraft windows and windshields are designed to withstand enormous stresses. Alongside the electric wires that heat these windows, there are also sensors to measure resistance and to control the heat so that they never become too hot or too cool for operating limits. 

Manufacturers of both windshields and windows undergo all manner of tests before the methodology for manufacturing these parts including raw materials is approved, to demonstrate that a new design follows complies with the standards set in the specification. Although aircraft windows undergo the same degree of stringent testing as aircraft engines, some incidences of aircraft window failures still do happen, and some of them have even turned fatal.

To tackle such unfortunate situations, market players continuously bring variations and betterments in their products such as Advanced Transparency Material with advanced impact and crack propagation resistance properties, which can be used in the manufacturing of both windshields and passenger windows.

Due to the troubling incidents involving aircraft window failures which severely impacts the human lives safety, the aeronautics industry has become extremely responsive towards it. As a result, the windows and windshield market invariably enjoys exponential traction on the global platform, witnessing constant strides of innovations and technological advancements.

Acknowledging the seminal work of these manufacturers and evaluating their business strategies that place them at the front in the market, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global commercial aircraft windows and windshield market will upsurge exponentially by 2023, registering over 4% CAGR throughout the forecast period (2017 – 2023).

Additional factors substantiating the market growth include the growing digitization along with the advancement of technology, Industry 4.0 including simulation, and sensors and virtual reality, transforming aviation manufacturing and product life cycles. Simultaneously, the increased air travel rate and augmented demand for aircrafts across the globe and similarly, new aircraft orders are expected to fuel the aviation windows and windshield market growth to an extent.

Conversely, the market is confronted by the invariably delayed customs clearance and high import duties charged in addition to the value-added taxes for aircraft spare parts. Nevertheless, availability of the aviation windows and windshield on e-platforms coupled with the Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) will support the market growth, availing cost-effective aviation spare parts.  Also, the introduction of Total Care Program would foster the market growth during the anticipated period.
