MFD are computer-like devices that are mounted on the instrument panel of an aircraft. They are very similar to primary flight displays (PFD) and are developed around a liquid-crystal display (LCD), or cathode ray tube (CRT) display device. They improve the functionality and accuracy along with enhanced situational awareness and safety of both the pilot and the aircraft.
The analysts forecast the global multi-function display (MFD) market to grow at a CAGR of 9.29% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The development of autopilot landing system is a key trend for market growth. The autopilot landing system assists in safe landing of aircraft during turbulent weather conditions and blurry vision. With the use of computer in a landing system, an autopilot can effectively monitor and measure, altitude, airspeed, and distance to ensure safe landing of the aircraft.”
According to the report, improved safety standards will be the key driver for market growth. As aircraft operations become more dependent on glass cockpit systems, flight crew and pilots must be trained to deal with possible failures. In 2008, United Airlines Flight 731 experienced a glass-cockpit blackout, where all communications to radios, transponders, traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS), and attitude indicators were lost, and half of the electronic centralized aircraft monitor (ECAM) displays failed. However, the presence of backup analog displays for critical flight instruments such as the airspeed indicator and altimeter enabled the pilots to land the aircraft successfully at Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey without radio contact.
Further, the report states that cost associated with autopilot system will be a major challenge against the market growth. Although there is widespread approval of autopilot systems, the high cost associated with it becomes a major challenge for the commercial and military aircraft. In 2010, the widely approved autopilot system was priced at more than $10,000, excluding installation charges. In 2014, the price had doubled and with the installation of additional features such as autopilot landing and ground collision avoidance systems, the costs were more than $40,000.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
