Market Drivers

  • Global demand for air travel – Original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), industry groups and the FAA forecast growing demand for air travel over the next 20 years given positive macroeconomic trends, particularly in emerging markets

  • Strong outlook for deliveries – Significant order volumes since 2010 and new product introductions support strong ongoing production rates

  • Increased wide body demand – Increased demand for air travel coupled with airport capacity constraints in developed markets are increasing demand for higher capacity aircraft

  • Increased premium and feature-packed seating – Competitive differentiation across premium products and demand for in-flight entertainment driving seat selection and replacement

  • Increased composite content – Requirements for weight reduction and reduced part counts plus the design flexibility of composites driving increasing demand for composites

  • Growing installed base – Market share of composite seating is growing which drives a larger installed base and recurring aftermarket volume from refurbishment

Composite seatbacks save approximately $50,000 in fuel per wide body aircraft per year
