Simulators Market

CAE Inc. (US), Thales Group (France) and Saab AB (Sweden) are leading players in Simulators Market

A Simulator is a system that combines software and hardware to simulate training. The market for simulators includes airborne, land, and maritime platforms, which are used to train commercial and military crew. Training through simulators can be provided via three techniques: live, virtual & constructive simulation, synthetic environment simulation, and gaming simulation. The Simulators market size is projected to grow from USD 25.5 billion in 2022 to USD 34.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2027. The increasing acceptance of virtual pilot training to ensure aviation safety is another significant factor expected to contribute to the growth of the simulators market.

Contracts, partnerships, agreements new product & service launches, mergers and acquisitions are among some of the key strategies adopted by the leading market players to strengthen and sustain their position in the Simulators market. In May 2022, Thales acquired RUAG Simulation & Training, which employs 500 people and has annual revenues of USD 93.81 million.
