Steady Market Growth, Intense Competition, and Fewer but Bigger Opportunities for Suppliers

The commercial avionics market is highly relying on the larger commercial aviation market and particularly on the number of aircraft being delivered and flying. The more the number of aircraft, the more avionics will be procured by the aircraft original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Research shows that one avionics supplier per aircraft could lead to fewer but bigger opportunities in an increasingly high-risk, high-reward market. Besides, more integrated architecture with "plug and play" core systems could open up opportunities for component suppliers despite growing competition for tier-one suppliers for the core system. Recently developed avionics technologies, driven by the shift to satellite technologies (particularly SATCOM and GNSS), will soon be the norm.

Key Findings
-Larger work packages will be awarded by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to avionics integrators and design partners, thus reducing the number of suppliers, particularly at the tier 1 level for standard systems. As a result, avionics suppliers will have more responsibility with the expectation that they will deliver an entire suite of systems.
-This trend is already visible on programmes such as the Boeing 787, the Airbus A350 XWB, the Superjet, the ATR 72, and soon the Comac C919. In some cases, this could be a single suite such as the navigation suite (for example, Honeywell on the Boeing 787) and sometimes, for smaller programs, suppliers provide the entire avionics suite (for example, Thales on the Superjet).
-More integrated solutions are offered to OEMs for the three main families of avionics systems (communication, navigation, and surveillance). Several integrated systems have been developed, for example, aircraft environment surveillance systems on the A380 and the A350XWB from Honeywell and the configurable Integrated Surveillance System on the Boeing 787 from Rockwell Collins. Integrated architecture with a core computer is a trend that will continue with new aircraft.
-The growing regional and air transport market will result in an increasing number of deliveries, directly driving the avionics market. As there will be more aircraft flying, more avionics systems will be in demand with a concurrent growth in demand for services.
-Mandates, especially with regard to Air Traffic Management (ATM), will continue to shape the avionics industry, particularly for communication, navigation, and surveillance systems, as solutions must be found to respond to a potential air traffic “jam”. Moreover, it will force airlines and OEMs to adopt newer technologies to replace outdated systems.
-More systems are becoming standard. The Boeing 787 is a good example, as the Heads-up Display (HuD) and Satellite Communications (SATCOM) systems are now standard. Although driving the market toward newer and better systems and also facilitating the production processes for OEMs, airlines will have less freedom to define their own configurations.
-Regarding the technology for the three main segments, communication, navigation and surveillance, there will be a shift from terrestrial network and navigation aids to aircraft depending more on satellite technologies (SATCOM and Global Navigation Satellite Systems [GNSS]).
