The global flight simulator market is projected to grow from USD 6.18 Billion in 2016 to USD 7.54 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021. Factors such as increased demand for new commercial and military pilots, adoption of virtual training to ensure aviation safety, and the need for cost-cutting of pilot training are expected to drive the market.

On the basis of application, the global flight simulator market has been segmented into military and commercial. The commercial application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021, primarily driven by the rising demand for commercial pilots owing to high air passenger growth.

The global flight simulator market has been segmented based on type of flight into fixed wing, rotary wing, and unmanned aircraft. The unmanned aircraft segment dominates the studied market, and is expected to continue its dominance over the next five years, primarily driven by the growing prominence of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in defense and commercial sectors.

On the basis of component, the global flight simulator market has been segmented into military component and commercial component. The key subsegments of the military component segment are FFS (Full Flight Simulator), FMS (Full Mission Simulator), and FTDs (Flight Training Devices). Among them, the FFS subsegment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, because these simulators have navigation and flight control systems on a motion platform. They can also be used for both, primary and regular training. The FTDs subsegment accounted for the largest share in 2015. The key subsegments of the commercial component segment are FFS (Full Flight Simulator), FBS (Fixed Base Simulator), and FTDs (Flight Training Devices). Among them, the FTDs subsegment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increase in demand for cost-effective simulation systems. The FFS subsegment accounted for the largest share in 2015.

The APAC region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the global flight simulator 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 deliveries and increasing air travel in the region, is expected to propel the flight simulator marketís growth in the region. Growth of the regionís aviation industry can also be attributed to the increasing middle class population, coupled with growth in trade and tourism in emerging countries, such as India and China.

Flight Simulator Market

Factors such as complexity of simulator systems, lack of interoperability, and difficulty for manufacturers to keep pace with the growing aviation industry may inhibit growth of the global flight simulator market.

Key players of the global flight simulator market include CAE Inc. (Canada), L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), FlightSafety International Inc. (U.S.), Thales Group (France), The Boeing Company (U.S.), Rockwell Collins, Inc. (U.S.), TRU Simulation + Training (U.S.), Airbus (France), among others.

Contract is the key strategy adopted by the industry players to achieve growth in the global flight simulator market. This strategy accounted for a major share of the total growth strategies adopted by the leading players. For instance, in April 2016, L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (U.S.) received a contract from the Polish Ministry of National Defence Support Directorate to supply F-16 Trainer Support.
