The future of in-flight entertainment content

Available November 2017.

Customer experience is crucial in today’s business world, and this is no different in the commercial aviation industry. Behind fare prices, in-flight experience is the second most crucial element passengers consider before choosing an airline.

Previous research has shown the backbone of a passenger’s experience is the breadth and quality of entertainment content available to them. Content service providers are constantly scanning today’s entertainment sphere and latest trends to discover new material. The expansion of connectivity in the air and the demand for real-time or time-sensitive content is also becoming more pronounced.

This independent holistic overview of the IFE content market focuses on all current and emerging content available today. From blockbuster movies to boutique documentaries to games and cached YouTube clips, this report explores the processes of procuring and selecting content for airlines, the licenses required and the regulations currently in play. The research also explores IFE user interface design trends, the growing desire to personalise customer experiences and how ancillary revenues can be maximised.

Key questions answered by this report include:

  • How big is the current IFE content market and how does this break down by movies, TV, music, games and other categories?
  • How is content demand changing and how quickly will the market grow over the next five years?
  • How are passenger expectations changing?
  • How important is a personalised digital content strategy?
  • What are the key trends for each region?
  • Is social media access or online content becoming more important than traditional content?
  • What is the value of ancillary revenues generated by IFE systems?
