The global aviation industry has been witnessing high competition, thereby influencing airlines in expanding airplane seats with high-quality comfort. Efforts are taken to offer premium airplane seats with extended space and entertainment systems. Manufacturers are pumping in heavy investments in R&D of the energy absorbing technology aircraft seat. One of the major challenges faced by the aviation industry for introducing design innovations is restrictive cost fuelled by certification and safety requirements.

Need for Innovative Seating Facilities to Drive Aircraft Seat Production

Manufacturers in aircraft seat market are taking immense efforts in developing light-weight material seats and are working on designing aircraft seats with aesthetic and ergonomic designs, which will help in improving the performance and fuel efficiency of the aircraft. For instance, Lufthansa has designed an innovative seating facility with new light-weight aircraft seats for its economy and business class European medium and short-haul fleet. Since the recent past, several aircraft accidents have taken place, which in turn makes passenger safety the utmost criteria for travelers and leading companies in the aircraft seat market. Growing issues related to passenger safety during improper take-offs and landings as well as during air turbulences have created opportunities for manufacturers to develop aircraft seats with more improved features.

  • Pitch Aircraft Seating Systems has been taking great efforts in expanding its global presence by developing an innovative strategy of providing 5 years warranty to its entire PF3000 aircraft seat. This aircraft seat features attractive designs and has the ability to withstand challenges faced during daily extensive operations.
  • Aviointeriors has been working on strengthening its relations with various universities by means of setting up medium-sized protocols for attracting excellence as well as increasing the scope of functioning of interior studies, thereby developing real Innovation Lab. This in turn creates significant opportunities for manufacturers in developing improved aircraft seat in the long run.
  • Recaro Holding along with Artsana Group have entered into a license agreement for the purpose of developing premium strollers and child aircraft seats. This step has been taken by the leading aircraft seat companies for streamlining their current premium market positioning, which in turn helps in developing new products under the Recaro brand heritage.

Increasing Number of Long-haul Travelers to Boost Demand for Exclusive Aircraft Seats
