A flight management system (FMS) is the core of every aircraft today. Flight management systems control a majority of tasks that were performed manually earlier, such as navigation and managing flight plans. A flight management system has a navigation database which helps pilots by directing flights to their respective destinations.


The flight management systems market is expected to grow slowly within the study period (2013-2018). The market is currently pegged at $498.0 million and is expected to reach $560.0 million by 2018. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.0% during this period. Though slow-growing, this market will expand greatly in the long run.


This report provides an in-depth analysis of the European flight management systems market. It also provides an insight into the regional trends to analyze the market share.


The European commercial aviation flight management systems market is segmented on the basis of aircraft types and geography. Aircraft types are categorized into Very Large Aircraft (VLA), Narrow Body Aircraft (NBA), Wide Body Aircraft (WBA), and Regional Transport Aircraft (RTA).


With the increase in global air travel, the major challengefor this industry is system complexity. Airlines are investing to compete with other players in the market. They cannot compromise on aircraft efficiency since it affects their profitability. Navigation plays an important role in airline profitability. Proper management of flight paths is mandatory to avoid unnecessary complications. It also helps in time management. Proper FMS will reduce delays, turnbacks, and diversions. This will lead to 20% reduction in maintenance costs and will drive the growth of European flight management systems.Technological advancement in flight management systems will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the equipment.


The major drivers of this market mainly include increase in air travel, increase in air traffic, increase in fleet renewal, and expansion and increase in safety operations. This market is restrained by airline order backlogs, increase in aviation fuel prices, economic downturn, and maintenance and repairs of airlines.


Companies operating in the European flight management systems market are Honeywell International, Inc., Rockwell Collins, Thales, Jeppesen, Esterline Corporation, United Arab Shipping Company, UASC, GE Aviation, and Lufthansa Systems.
