Aircraft Lighting Systems Market Size & Growth (2023 - 2030)


In 1903, first flight was reported to be conducted by Wright brothers. Now in 21st century air transport is constantly being developed and modernized. Aviation industry is directly related to factors such as politics, health, defense and economics. Despite the ups and downs in such factors aviation industry provides better global connectivity as a means of fastest transportation.  One of the major security concerns of aircraft is that of aircraft lighting system. Aircrafts currently is been installed with lighting system with better security features and less power consumption.  

The Aircraft Lighting System is anticipated to rise further in global market. With the increase of adoption of LED lighting system and rise in demand for passengers, as commercial aircraft being fastest mode of transport. The aircraft lighting system will grow in coming time.

Market Drivers & Restraints


The Air traffic is anticipated to rise further in coming times. The commercial flights both international and domestic is demanding a greater number of aircrafts. This is increasing the market for Aircraft Lightning System market. The adoption of LED lighting system technology is increasing in aviation industry. The carbon reduction (Emission of Carbon Dioxide) from latest and advanced aircraft lighting system like LED (Light-emitting Diode), Incandescence, Photo Luminescent, and strobe, is saving and improving earth’s environment conditions.

In April 2022, IFPL group UK-based, interface solution specialist for airline passengers) has acquired Cobalt Aerospace Group (UK-based company providing service like wireless chargers, emergency floor path and LED mood lighting). From this acquisition there will be more demand for LED lighting in Aircraft Lighting system market.


The Covid-19 epidemic has brought decrease in Air traffic and, in aviation industry. The tourism sector is also affected with this epidemic resulting in less air travel. The initial cost for installation of Aircraft lightning systems is high as compared with convectional method of lighting system for Aircraft. Also, the maintenance cost of Aircraft lighting system is high as compared with convectional.

Among Exterior lighting application and Interior lighting application of Aircraft Lighting system, Interior lighting application has largest shares in global market. The interior lighting application is mostly used in different types of aircraft. While Exterior lighting application is utilized typically at Airports. The number of aircrafts is far greater than number of Airports worldwide. Therefore, more aircraft lighting system is used in different aircrafts.

Impact of COVID-19 on Aircraft Lighting Systems Market

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 epidemic, in December 2022, the Air traffic among the globe has harshly reduced. According to IATA and associated press releases more than forty five percent decrease is seen in Air traffic, of both in international airlines and domestic airlines. In the initial period of epidemic, commercial flights had been cutdown in resuming operation of flights along with shutdown of Airports to control the spread of Covid-19 virus.

The Aircraft Lighting system market was also directly affected with decrease in air traffic. But in mid and late months of year 2022, there was a slight rise in air traffic both in international and domestic flights. Many countries across the world signed international treaties and agreements allowing different types of aircrafts and passengers to travel between countries. One such international agreement is Air bubble agreement. This agreement was mostly introduced to aviation sector during Covid-19. Under Air bubble agreement more than 28 countries has been registered. The countries included under this agreement consist of USA, India, Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Sri Lanka and many others. The air traffic is anticipated to increase in coming time, as Airports and International flight operations are gradually opened, allowing to operate in its full capacity. So, with increase in air traffic, the Aircraft Lighting System market is to rise further.

Regional Analysis

North America is capturing the largest shares in Aircraft Lighting System market, globally. According to International press releases USA has presence of a greater number of aircrafts than other countries worldwide. USA, in the year 2022 had the largest number of Military aircraft worldwide, according to media and press reports.
