Top 5 Vendors in the All-weather Landing System Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global all-weather landing system market report. This research report also lists 5 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

In 2015, the instrument landing system (ILS) segment held over 89% share of the global all-weather landing system market, owing to its low cost and flexible installation regulations. The ILS segment was followed by the ground-based augmentation system (GBAS) segment with a share of more than 7% and the microwave landing system (MLS) segment with a share of almost 4%.

The integration of global positioning system (GPS) in aircraft landing is the latest trend that would boost flight operations and result in reduced congestion at the airports. It also helps in noise reduction by optimizing the landing and takeoff operations of aircraft. Similarly, the integration of GPS ensures a high degree of safety and security for passengers and aircraft, as it lowers the risk of runway accidents. The development of GBAS landing system and next-generation En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) are some of the key trends emerging in the market.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global all-weather landing system market is highly competitive as vendors compete on the basis of product quality, reliability, cost, and aftermarket service. In order to survive and succeed in such a strongly competitive environment, it is vital for vendors to provide high-quality and cost-effective landing systems with latest technology and materials.

Honeywell International and Rockwell Collins are the two leading vendors operating in the market. Their focus is primarily on the implementation of more electric technologies and robust systems. In 2014, Honeywell Aerospace signed a contract with the UK Department for International Development to equip an undisclosed Australian airport with SmartPath GBAS,” says Moutushi Saha, one of the lead aerospace components research analyst from Technavio.

Factors such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A), along with increased collaboration with alliance partners around the world, will promote growth for the global market during the forecast period. In 2015, Esterline Technologies, a prominent vendor operating in this sphere, acquired Barco, a vendor based in Poperinge, Belgium for USD 200 million. This acquisition enhanced the former company's position in the market and enabled direct access to local customers.

Government organizations such as ICAO, IATA, FAA, EASA, CASA, and EU certify the landing systems of every vendor. They encourage the use of such systems as they enhance flight safety as well as improve landing and navigation of aircraft. As a result, vendors invest in creating new, cost-efficient, and effective precision approach landing systems for use by the airports, globally.
