WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2015) - The global market for commercial avionics equipment is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.0% through 2020, with $20 billion to be spent on avionics systems for fixed-wing commercial aircraft in 2015 alone. Avascent, a strategy and management consulting firm, recently released the latest iteration of its Commercial Aircraft Systems module, a toolkit feature containing key industry data that has also forecasted the following, notable trends:

  • An increase in "current engine" variant aircraft production: Avascent's 20-year delivery forecast reflects greater confidence in aircraft manufacturers' ability to fill delivery slots for last off-the-line, "current engine" narrowbody aircraft during the 2016-2019 timeframe, extending the transition period to new-engine variants such as the A320neo and 737MAX 

  • Spares equipment to grow faster than original equipment: The market for avionics spares equipment for air transport aircraft is forecasted to grow at a 5.3% CAGR during 2015-2020 to reach roughly $4.2 billion in 2020 

    • Original equipment for air transport aircraft will exhibit a more modest growth rate of 2.3% to reach $11.3 billion in 2020

  • The market for turboprop aircraft equipment to grow 5.5% annually: Turboprop aircraft original avionics equipment is projected to total $350 million in 2020

Additional market projections can be found in the overall Avascent Analytics Commercial Aircraft Systems toolkit.
