NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This report, from Stratview Research, studies the global aerospace lavatory system market over the period 2010 to 2021. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
The Global Aerospace Lavatory System Market: Highlights
Lavatory is one of the most important systems in an aircraft cabin interior. The aircraft lavatory must withstand high velocities and abrasion without spilling a drop, be durable, minimize water usage to make plane lighter for achieving better fuel efficiency, and have the ability to withstand frequent usage by the passengers. The lavatory design varies from aircraft to aircraft and airlines to airlines depending up on their requirements. Lavatory manufacturers have gradually improved its design, making it lightweight using advanced materials and shrunk lavatory size without sacrificing passenger comfort. They have also improved the toilet system from earlier reusable to recirculating to vacuum toilet over a period of time and are now upgrading the existing vacuum toilet to compact vacuum toilet with high performance.
The overall competition is fierce in the aerospace lavatory market with half a dozen companies extending their offerings in this market space. All of them are trying to develop advanced and modular lavatories meeting OEMs' and airliners' needs. In 2013, B E Aerospace developed an advanced lavatory system for B737 which is slightly compact than the standard 3X3 foot size lavatory. This allowed airlines to squeeze few more passengers in the aircraft cabin which led Boeing to switch from Zodiac to BE Aerospace and give its contract for B737 aircraft to BE Aerospace.
The global aerospace lavatory system market offers a healthy growth opportunity and is likely to grow at a 5.2% CGAR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Increasing commercial aircraft deliveries and growing aircraft fleet size are the key drivers in the global aerospace lavatory system market. Vacuum toilets are likely to be dominant in the next five years.
North America is expected to remain the dominant region in the aerospace lavatory system market, being a manufacturing hub of the major commercial aircraft manufacturer, i.e. Boeing. Wide body aircraft segment is expected to drive the global aerospace lavatory system market in the forecast period
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material manufacturers, toilet manufacturers, lavatory system manufacturers, Aircraft OEMs, and Airliners. The key aerospace OEMs are Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, ATR, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and key airliners are Lufthansa, Delta Air, Air China, and Singapore Airlines.
The key lavatory system manufacturers are Zodiac Aerospace, Jamco Corporation, B E Aerospace, Diehl Comfort Modules GmbH, and Yokohama Rubbers. New product development, regional expansion, and long term contacts are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain competitive edge in the market. All the players are developing compact lavatory system to increase the cabin space for adjusting more number of seats per aircraft, advanced system, such as bidet system, and compact vacuum toilets.
