DALLAS, 8 May 2015. The commercial avionics systems market is on track to reach $23.7 million by 2020, growing at a high compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.06 percent, from $15.7 million in 2014, according to the latest report from MarketsandMarkets.

The growing need for real-time data is a catalyst boosting the avionics systems market, as is the demand for NextGen avionics in the United States, according to MarketsandMarkets analysts. The narrow-body aircraft segment is expected to have a high growth due to deliveries and orders during the forecast period.

The ADS-B technology in avionics systems is an opportunity for manufacturers; however, adherence to mandatory certifications laid down by the aviation industry and training for pilots are the challenges faced by the commercial avionics systems market, according to the new report.

The North American region is estimated to account for the largest market share till 2020 followed by the European region. The APAC region is projected to witness the highest number of aircraft deliveries than any other region during the forecast period. The increase in aircraft deliveries will eventually lead to the growth of the avionics systems market. Key markets such as France, the U.S., Russia, China, and India would drive the growth of the market.

The commercial avionics systems market is highly competitive, with a significant number of market players, says a MarketsandMarkets representative. This report studies the growth strategies adopted by these market players. The strategies adopted by players to expand their global presence and increase their market share include partnerships, agreements, collaborations, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions, and new product launches.
