Key Trends in the Market

  • Introduction of Electric Aircraft & Flying Taxis

The adoption of the new eVTOLs (electric vertical takeoff & landing aircraft) in the aerospace & defense industry is growing at a significant rate as eVTOLs is a combination of modern electrical & autonomous technologies such as AI, big data, and others, with no carbon emissions. The development of electric aircraft & flying taxis is motivated by a desire to reduce aircraft pollution while also promoting air travel as a viable option. The demand for digital mapping software is expected to rise as the government invests more in the deployment of electric aircraft & flying taxis. Furthermore, the rising demand for urban air mobility solutions around the globe is another factor predicted to boost the demand for eVTOL during the forecast period. For instance:

  • Prague-based ZURI, the company developing hybrid VTOL aviation technology aimed at regional passenger & cargo transportation, secured USD2.84 million investments in 2021 for the continued development of hybrid VTOL aircraft

Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Aviation Digital Maps Software Market

By 2020, the Global Aviation Digital Maps Software market observed an acute decline due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The production rates of commercial aircraft also reduced, owing to the temporary suspension of fleet operations across the globe along with the number of travelers decreased due to international travel-specific restrictions imposed by the governments of several countries worldwide. However, with the post-COVID-19 scenario, ongoing future projects to purchase new military aircraft among the countries along with logistics providers and airline operators such as Air Canada, Volatus Aerospace, Flexport, Astral Aviation, Aurora International, and Dymond are also increasing their fleets with new orders of cargo. Hence, this is expected to spur the market growth considerably in 2022-2027.

Market Segmentation

Based on Map Type:

  • 2D
  • 3D

Among the two, the 3D digital map software is anticipated to have considerably high demand in the Global Aviation Digital Maps Software market, due to its enhanced configuration, which further improved the pilot's situational awareness, hence boosting passenger safety. Consequently, the inclination of aircraft OEMs toward the digital 3D map is expected to grow at a considerable rate during the forecast period. The surging export of aircraft to developing countries such as India, Argentina, the increasing number of software up-gradation in commercial & military aircraft, and the introduction of VTOL 3D maps for electric planes by the market players are some of the factors strongly contributing to the market growth of Digital Map Software market in the aviation industry in the coming years.

Based on End Users:

  • Commercial Airports
  • Aeronautics
    • Commercial Aircraft
    • Military Aircrafts

Of them all, the commercial airports exhibited a considerable demand for digital maps software over the past few years due to the construction of new airports & expansion of runways worldwide. In addition, the surging government expenditure for the expansion of the airport to meet rapid air traffic growth, owing to growing air passengers, would create an opportunity for the installation of air traffic control towers. Hence, the building of new air traffic control towers would further encourage the need for the installation of digital maps software.

  • In 2018, Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, India, announced the launch of the fourth runway by 2020, and a new air traffic control tower was envisioned to be opened in 2018.

Regional Landscape

Geographically, the Global Aviation Digital Maps Software Market encompasses:

  • North America
  • Latin America
  • Europe
  • The Middle East & Africa
  • Asia-Pacific

Of all regions globally, North America held the major market share in the historical period, owing to the factors such as burgeoning investment in new aircraft manufacturing by OEMs & the presence of OEMs in large countries such as the US & Canada. For instance, in 2021, Boeing Co. aims to invest USD200 million to begin manufacturing the U.S. Navy’s latest unmanned aircraft at MidAmerica St. Louis Airport.

Besides, the surging government initiatives to promote aviation industries, soaring inclination toward electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and increasing aircraft & fighter jets in the air force of North American countries are also generating revenue opportunities for the Aviation Digital Maps Software market.
