Prospects for In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity is a 90-page in-depth strategic review of the aeronautical industry, including sector dynamics, analysis and forecasts and addressing the In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) market for commercial airlines and business aviation. Including company-by-company and airline-by-airline analysis in terms of connectivity. Market forecasts for revenue, installation, and bandwidth by region, by segment and by network technology is provided.

Highlights of the report:

The global In-Flight Connectivity market is expected to grow over the next 10 years, with approximately 13,000 commercial and 24,000 business airplanes to provide in-flight connectivity to passengers by 2023. With a take-up rate of 6% for commercial airline passengers, in-flight connectivity services generated around $440 million in revenue from airline passengers last year.

At present, 59 airlines in the world provide passenger in-flight connectivity services via satellite or ATG networks. Over 80% of connected aircraft are still from North America, however, Europe, the Middle East and Asia are getting increasingly important in the market, and are expected to be the major growth engine in the next decade. Besides the mature ATG and L-band networks, Ku and Ka-band satellite systems are increasingly being adopted by airlines. Capacity requirements from in-flight passenger traffic are expected to grow in the next ten years, supported by the launch of HTS satellites. About one third of the traffic is expected to be over oceanic regions.

The In-Flight Entertainment market is growing rapidly alongside in-flight connectivity. Over the past few years, several breakthrough technologies such as seat-centric systems and wireless IFE have entered the market, transforming the in-flight passenger experience. Airlines are benefiting from new solutions which increase passenger satisfaction, reduce costs and provide more ancillary revenue opportunities.
