Aircraft Seating Materials are the components of the seating arrangement employed for comfortable passenger accommodation during the flight. These materials impact on the fuel consumption during the flight, so careful selection is required without compromising the passenger comfort. In recent times carbon composites are replacing aluminum for the seat structure due to its durability, lighter weight and several other factors. With the uplift of ban on use of magnesium in seating materials, production of magnesium alloy based seating materials is initiated. These alloys reduce the weight of the aircraft significantly, with comparatively better parameters including temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and so on.

The aircraft seating material market is segmented and analyzed on the basis of parameters including: Material Type, Aircraft Type and Seating Class. Material type is broken down with respect to the components of seating such as Structure, Foam Cushions, Upholsteries, Fire Blocking Textiles and Plastic Molding. Further Aircraft type is segmented as Large Wide Body, Medium Wide Body, Small Wide Body, Single Aisle and Regional Transport Aircraft highlighting the journey distance in accordance to which the seating material are developed for adequate passenger comfort during the journey. The seating class vertical includes Suite Class, First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.

For in-depth analysis, the seating material market is further fragmented by major regions including Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World; followed by the major countries under these regions.

The prominent players of the market includes:
B/E Aerospace (U.S.),
Jamco Corp. (Japan),
Recaro Aircraft Seating GmbH Co. KG (Germany),
HAECO Inc. (U.S.) and several others.

The research methodology for market estimation commences through segmentation of the aircraft seating material market. This is followed by collection of market revenue and market volume of various types of materials used in a particular type of aircraft and in context with the class. Then, the region wise data for different types of aircraft operating in a region was mined from various associations and airline companies. Finally the bottom-up approach was utilized to estimate the global market size of aircraft seating material and forecast was done for the required period. Besides the secondary research process, the data points were verified by KOLs from seat material manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, aircraft seat manufacturers, aircraft manufacturers, airline companies and regulatory bodies of various regions through primary research process. A few associations considered for this report includes Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE), Airline Passenger Experience Association, International Transport Aircraft Seating Suppliers’ Association (ITASS), Polyurethane Foam Association (PFA) and so on.
