General Aviation Avionics Market Analysis and Outlook


  • Demand throughout the forecast period will remain strong despite temporary decline in the short term.

  • New levels of avionics performance have dramatically increased pilot situational awareness.

  • The retrofit market will witness significant technology insertion through 2012 and will be the most dynamic in terms of competitive positioning and new technology introduction.

  • Consolidation will continue. With fewer OEM programs available, companies will continue to shop for technology acquisitions in order to bring themselves closer to integrated avionics offerings. Timing of consolidation is critical as few companies remain that can enhance significantly potential buyers competitive positions.

  • From a competitive standpoint, Garmin’s ultra dominance of the aircraft OEM segment clearly indicates that the company’s market expansion strategy proved correct.

DoD RDT&E: Market Analysis and Outlook (AB079 ES)

Market Findings

  • RDT&E budgets have increased in the recent past due to delays in moving major programs into production; this trend will continue but associated funding growth will slow considerably in the near-term

    – Congress has commenced efforts to gain more oversight into RDT&E program schedule and cost over-runs
    – Programs that show excessive cost growth or fail to meet technical milestones will be increasingly threatened by cancellation

  • Army and Navy RDT&E funding will decrease significantly over near and long-term, as large platform programs transition to procurement and funds are sent to that account to complete the acquisition

  • Early stage development for programs will face increasing funding pressure in the long-term, as final development of large platforms consumes a greater share of the RDT&E budget, particularly in the Army and Navy

  • Supplemental and baseline spending have grown extremely large and become intermixed during the last 4 years. Separating what will continue as baseline will require some fiscal control by the DoD

Commercial Air Transport Avionics Market, Analysis and Outlook

Executive Briefing
  • Demand throughout the forecast period will be robust with a temporary decline
    towards the later part
  • There will be strong avionics upgrade opportunities in established markets such
    as the US and Europe until new narrowbody aircraft are introduced sometime
    next decade
  • Near Term Outlook: average growth rate 2007-2010: 5.6%, Compound Annual
    Growth Rate 2006-2010: 4.6%
  • Top three avionics OEM competitors control approximately 85% of the forward
    fit market, an increase over previous years
  • Consolidation likely will continue with Tier 1 & 2 companies looking to augment
    their market role in the retrofit segment and make other acquisitions based on
    program or avionics technology-based opportunities. For example, General
    Electric’s 2007 acquisition of Smith Industries has augmented GE’s avionics
    footprint and aircraft shipset value significantly
  • Market vulnerable to a downturn in aircraft orders, however replacement cycles
    and need for more efficient aircraft will moderate such an impact

Combat Aircraft Market Global Market Outlook 2009-2019 (AB082)

This 30-page research note presents combat aircraft and selected avionics market analysis from 2008 to 2019.

World Air Forces are at various combat aircraft replacement and upgrade cycles. Most NATO countries are in an active replacement phase for their 1970s designed aircraft while emerging nations such as India will evaluate entirely new aircraft sources in the near future. More than 5,000 combat aircraft will be entering service globally over the next decade, with a peak of 524 deliveries in 2014.

Programs such the Lockheed Martin F-35 are set to dominate the marketplace through 2029 while G2 Solutions expects aircraft such as the Dassault Rafale to gain more traction on the export market through 2014. “Rafale has had issues with some export tenders this decade, due to a mix of unfavorable political considerations and system overall technical maturity,” said Michel Merluzeau, G2 Solutions’ Managing Partner. “However, the outlook has improved, with market potential for Rafale around 300 aircraft to 2019, more if it wins the Indian MMRCA competition.”

Airframes of concern this decade include the Saab Gripen and Boeing F-15 Silent Eagle (SE). Gripen has been relatively successful, but now competes for tenders in Brazil and India where the aircraft is clearly at a disadvantage against the Boeing F-18E or Dassault Rafale. Failure to gain additional orders might see the program come to a standstill by 2015, however there are smaller opportunities such as Argentina that are possibly ideally suited for Gripen. “The upgraded F-15SE is an interesting niche option for existing F-15 operators, but the market opportunity window is tight and the addressable market is probably fewer than 100 aircraft,” stated Merluzeau.

The study also highlights the remarkable longevity of the Lockheed Martin F-16 series, soon to be supplanted by the F-35. Thirty years since its entry in service, G2 Solutions analysis predicts that more than 200 F-16s have/will be delivered between 2008 and 2019. Lockheed Martin will maintain a commanding lead with a market share greater than 43%, ahead of Boeing, AVIC1, Eurofighter-EADS and Dassault Aviation.

Business Aviation Avionics Market Analysis and Outlook, February 2009 (AB081)

Market Findings

  • Business aviation avionics markets remain very dynamic. Although a significant slow down of US and European market demand will affect sales over the next three years.

  • The sector remains the most innovative in terms of new technology adoption and experimentation.

  • Rockwell Collins, Honeywell and Universal Avionics continue to dominate the medium to higher market segments with Garmin establishing a solid foothold at the lower end of the market segment with emerging light jet programs.

  • The dominance of integrated systems will not lead to a similar dominance from one or two players alone. Aircraft OEMs are likely to mitigate risk with the transition to multiple subs working for a lead integrator on future key programs.
