DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Wireless In-Flight Entertainment (W-IFE) Market Analysis By Aircraft Type (Narrow-Body, Wide-Body, Regional Jet), By Fitment Type (Retrofit, Line Fit), By Hardware, By Technology, And Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global wireless in-flight entertainment (W-IFE) market is expected to reach USD 3.53 billion by 2025.
Increased proliferation of mobile devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets, has prompted airlines to start offering wireless in-flight connectivity & entertainment services to passengers, thereby providing them access to a wide spectrum of stored as well as streaming entertainment content and other connectivity services on their personal devices.
In the U.S., the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has permitted the use of Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) inside the aircraft with implementation guidelines. This regulatory change is expected to pave the way for new and innovative W-IFE solutions. The combination of wireless in-flight connectivity and in-flight entertainment has opened several opportunities for the overall industry growth, such as streaming live movies, live content, and other Advertising Video-On-Demand (AVOD) services.
There has been an increased number of partnerships among connectivity service providers across the globe for achieving enhancements in their service portfolios and providing high-speed connectivity services at economical rates. Recently, Inmarsat plc., a mobile satellite communication provider, collaborated with ViaSat, a digital communications provider, to develop new mobile satellite communication.
Companies developing software for entertainment systems for W-IFE hardware and equipment are anticipated to grow at a phenomenal rate in line with the rising demand for dynamic entertainment solutions. Leading content providers, such as Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (GEE) and Stellar Entertainment, are expected to grow at a considerable rate, leveraging the unique content services they offer via the streamed as well as the stored channels.
