Factors such as the increased demand for new aircraft deliveries, air travel, and the upgradation of aircraft programs are expected to drive the market.

On the basis of aircraft type, the global aircraft seating market has been segmented into NBA, WBA, VLA, and RTA. The VLA is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021, primarily driven by the increasing air traffic globally.

The global aircraft seating market has been segmented based on seat class into first class, business class, premium economy class, and economy class. The business class dominates the studied market, and is expected to continue its dominance over the next five years, primarily driven by the growing prominence of advanced business class seat design and comfort.

On the basis of component, the global aircraft seating market has been segmented into seat actuators, foam & fittings and others. Among them, the seat actuator subsegment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as the demand for better designed seats from actuators is increasing, which will ultimately enhance passenger comfort. The other subsegment which accounted for the largest share in 2016 is that of fibres, thermoplastics, metals and plastics.

The APAC region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the global aircraft seating market, during the forecast period. The regionís aviation industry has been witnessing strong growth over the past few years. This growth, mainly driven by an increasing demand for new aircraft and increasing air travel in the region, is expected to propel the growth of the aircraft seating market in the region. Growth of the regionís aviation industry can also be attributed to the increasing middle class population with higher disposable incomes, coupled with the growth in trade and tourism in emerging countries, such as India and China.
