Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/10/2018 -- Aircraft Seating Global Market – Overview

The overall aircraft seating market in the globe is largely dominated by the passengers various requirement regarding seating comfort. For the long-distance journey, aircraft seat fitted into passenger airlines are designed to develop better relationship between passenger and the company. Similarly, manufacturers in the global aircraft seating market are targeting upon designing seats with an ergonomic and aesthetic design, which enables them in serving the needs of passengers across different cultures. Airlines sometimes go with both, high and low-end options, varying the seating, depending on the market/route, flight timing or target audience.

In Premium configuration, the aircraft is arranged for premium economy, business and first class seats, with less or no economy class seats.

While, in Standard seating configuration, the aim is to increase the seating density per aircraft, adding more economy class seats to the premium economy, business, and first class. Standard configuration is generally used for the most part of the airline's flight network while premium configuration aircraft are mainly used on special routes or flight timing.

One of the greatest challenges to introduce design innovations in aviation is the restrictive cost, mainly driven by the safety and certification requirements (crash test, flammability, evacuation requirements etc.), which requires specialisation in this field. Moreover, good design takes time to reach the assembly from the prototype of the aircraft.

The global aircraft seating market is expected to grow at 14% CAGR during the forecast period 2017 to 2023.
