The report, now available on ASDReports, "Flight Simulator Market by Application (Military, Commercial), by Type of Flight (Fixed Wing, Rotary Wing, Unmanned Aircraft), Military Component (FFS, FMS, FTD), Commercial Component (FFS, FBS, FTD), Geography - Global Forecast to 2021", The global flight simulator market is projected to reach USD 7.54 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021. Factors such as increased demand for new commercial and military pilots, adoption of virtual training to ensure aviation safety, and the need for cost-cutting of pilot training are expected to drive the global flight simulator market.
The military segment to dominate the global flight simulator market with highest market share
On the basis of application, the military segment dominates the global flight simulator market with largest market share and is expected to continue its dominance over the next five years, though the commercial segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for military simulators is primarily driven by their use in armed forces training and mission training. Rising demand for commercial pilots tends to drive the commercial simulator market.
The unmanned aircraft segment is expected to grow at the highest pace during the forecast period
The unmanned aircraft segment of the global flight simulator market, by type of flight, is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. It is expected to dominate the market on account of the growing prominence of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in defense as well as the commercial sector.
The flight simulator market is expected to witness the highest growth in the Asia-Pacific region
The aviation industry in the Asia-Pacific region has been witnessing strong growth over the past few years. This growth, which is mainly driven by increasing demand for new aircraft deliveries and increasing air traffic in this region, is expected to boost the global flight simulator market. The aviation industry’s growth can also be attributed to the increase in trade & tourism, as well as increasing disposable income of the middle class population in emerging economies, such as India and China.
Key players in the global flight simulator market include CAE Inc. (Canada), L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), FlightSafety International Inc. (U.S.), Thales Group (France), The Boeing Company (U.S.), and Rockwell Collins, Inc. (U.S.), among others.
