The global aircraft health monitoring system market size is projected to reach USD 4,987.9 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.56% during the forecast period. Fortune Business Insights shares this information in its report, titled “Aircraft Health Monitoring System Market, 2020-2027”. In 2019, according to the report, the value of the market stood at USD 4,202.4 million.
Booming Demand for Air Travel to Stimulate Market Growth
The demand for air travel has increased at a prolific pace over the past few years, driven by expanding middle-class populations, rising disposable incomes, and improving living standards. For example, data released by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) show that the total number of air passengers rose by 6.4% from 2017 levels, reaching 4.3 billion in 2018. Low-cost carriers transported approximately 1.3 billion passengers, accounting for 31% of world air travelers. Aircraft health monitoring systems (AHM) have gained enormous importance in the aviation industry as these systems are critical in ensuring the optimal flying conditions of airplanes. Any sloppiness in maintenance operations can put the lives of hundreds of passengers at risk, which makes it necessary for airline operators to adopt AHM solutions.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has proven catastrophic for the aviation industry, with social distancing, travel bans, and lockdowns causing the demand for air travel to decline steeply. For example, according to the ICAO, there was a 60% decrease in passenger traffic, leading to an approximate revenue loss of USD 370 billion for airline companies worldwide. The economic fallout of the pandemic on the aviation industry has stymied airline companies’ investment plans and is likely to hinder the adoption of advanced maintenance systems, such as AHM. In 2020, the market contracted by -44.8% and registered a value of USD 2,319.7 million.

Key Driving Factor
Integration of Smart Technologies in Aircraft Maintenance to Boost the Market
Aircraft maintenance is a crucial operation that airline companies and manufacturers have to perform not just to comply with regulations and standards, but also to ensure stable business growth. The integration of smart technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), with aircraft health monitoring systems has opened the gateway of innovation in the aviation industry. For example, Pratt Whitney’s eFAST data transmission technology was utilized by Bombardier in 2021 to perform AHM functions on its C-Series jets. Bombardier has also collaborated with Tech Mahindra to create an Aircraft Ground Support System that leverages big data, cloud computing, sensor technologies. The adoption of advanced technologies by large aircraft companies is, thus, propelling the aircraft health monitoring system market growth.
Key Regional Insights
Growing Domestic Air Passenger Traffic to Catalyze the Market in Asia Pacific
Asia Pacific is set to showcase phenomenal growth in the global AHM system market owing to the soaring number of domestic air passengers. This trend is underpinned by the proliferation of low-cost carriers in India and China, along with massive investments in the region to build robust aviation infrastructures.
North America, however, is expected to dominate the aircraft health monitoring system market share during the forecast period backed by the rising demand for commercial aircraft, electric jets, and the increasing stringency of aviation regulations across the US and Canada. In 2019, the region’s market size stood at USD 1,386.8 million. In Europe, on the other hand, the rising demand for predictive maintenance solutions will aid the regional market growth.
