Aerospace Data Recorder Market: Snapshot

The most commonly known aerospace data recorders are flight data recorders and cockpit voice recorders. Majorly fuelling the global aerospace data recorders market is the pressing need for real-time data transmission during flight. The data transferred to and from cockpit and aircraft serve a crucial purpose in investigations. On account of this, they are being increasingly incorporated in commercial as well as military aircrafts.

Acting as a restraint to the global aerospace data recorder market is the expensiveness of next generation flight recorders. A growing aerospace industry worldwide is stoking demand for cutting-edge technologies to amass accurate and precise data from an aircraft. In response to that, aerospace data recorder manufacturers are developing technologies using sophisticated and expensive electronics and sensors, which in turn is upping the price of the final product, thereby crimping their demand to an extent.

To overcome such challenges, savvy players in the global aerospace data recorder market are emphasizing on research for the transmission of real-time data directly to cloud.

A report by Transparency Market Research projects the global aerospace data recorder market to expand at a lackluster CAGR of 4.6% from 2017 to 2025. At this pace, the market will likely attain a value of US$2.086 mn by 2025 from US$1.422 million in 2016.
