Aircraft seats are the most visible and prominent parts of an aircraft, and their importance cannot be understated as they determine the class of the aircraft the passengers will be travelling in. The decision by a commercial airliner to choose a particular category of seats is determined by the demand of the route and the traffic it is seeing. High traffic routes require more compact seating and more seats in the economy class, whereas the airline can include better seating configuration on routes which don’t have extremely high density. Also a determining factor is the average paying capacity of the public travelling by that route. If the route is most frequented by business and high income group travelers , then airlines add more of better, wider seats with more leg space, even if it means sacrificing space, because airlines make up for fewer seats by selling better seats at a much higher rate.

The Aircraft Seating Market segmented on the basis of aircraft type, component, by type of seats, by fit and on the basis of different regions of the world. Owing to rising disposable incomes around the world, and spread of companies and offices around the world, the business class segment is expected to contribute most in terms of revenue, but owing to significantly lower unit costs, the economy class seating would still be far ahead in terms of volume addition.
