Supportive Government Policies and Importance of Security are Relevant Market Opportunities

Stringent Government Regulations Encouraging Digitalisation 

The increasing digitalisation favoured by stringent regulations of the government while ensuring safety and security of passengers amidst changing climate conditions are anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities to the global connected aircraft market. 

 

Surge in the Cases of Plane Hijacks and Disappearances 

The increase in cases of plane hijacks, growing risk of terrorism, and plane disappearances due to technical errors are anticipated to aid the market in the coming years. 

 

Rapid Development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles 

The rapid development and increasing investments aimed towards increasing the production of unmanned aerial vehicles is expected to be a major opportunity in the market. 

 

Electronic Equipment Usage Restrictions, Risk of Cyber Attacks, and Lack of Technological Penetration to Challenge Market Growth

Prohibition of Wi-Fi and Smart Devices in Commercial Aircrafts

Wi-Fi and smart devices which enable users to facilitate video conferencing and phone calls also lead to electromagnetic interference which is typically strictly prohibited in commercial airplanes. 

 

Lack of Technological Penetration

The lack of technological penetration and slow digitalisation across underdeveloped countries are likely to impede the development of the connected aircraft market. In addition to this, the lack of proper aviation infrastructure and lack of airports in semi-urban areas are further restraining the market growth. 

 

Risk of Cyber Attacks and Hacking

The risk of the cyber attacks and hacking by terrorists can shift the focus of manufacturers towards enhancing security of connected systems instead of developing new technologies.
