The future of in-flight entertainment content
Enquire now >>

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.

The future of in-flight connectivity

Since the first edition of Valour Consultancy’s in-flight connectivity report, the market has evolved rapidly. Several airlines have begun to move to a multi-source approach to connectivity and adoption is gathering pace outside of North America. A host of new players are jockeying for position, while service providers continue to roll out next-generation equipment that promises to make the very best of additional bandwidth now coming online. Furthermore, the industry has been gripped by fevered debate around the pros and cons associated with owning and leasing satellite capacity.

The third edition of Valour Consultancy’s highly-acclaimed “The future of IFC” report is available to order now. The study features comprehensive insight and analysis crucial to a complete understanding of the IFC market, allowing operators to review all available options ahead of major investment decisions.

A thorough analysis of the market and the outlook for future adoption of various industry-changing technologies.

The future of aircraft seating & in-seat power
Estimated Q4 2018. Enquire now >>

The pace of change in commercial aerospace is greater now than it ever has been before, providing airlines with a constant challenge in keeping their cabins up to date and appealing to passengers – particularly given the amount of competition in the industry. The aircraft seat itself is absolutely critical to the overall passenger experience, regardless of cabin class. Likewise, the growing adoption of wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems threatens to change the way in which IFE is traditionally integrated into the seat. As such, there is a growing desire to offer in-seat power in all class to ease the so-called “battery anxiety” passengers increasingly now encounter.

This report therefore considers the future evolution of the seating and in-seat power markets, in terms of product type, fitment type, aircraft type, seating class, and geographic region. A highly statistical set of final deliverables will allow the reader to benefit from detailed insight into the way in which these markets are expected to develop over the next ten years. The report will also contain an exhaustive discussion of key drivers and inhibitors of market growth, a comprehensive section on the competitive environment that will include detailed profiles of key companies, and similarly detailed information on all the key technology trends at play.

IFEC & CMS systems on VIP & business aircraft
Estimated Q1 2019. Enquire now >>

In commercial aviation, airlines continue to announce their plans surrounding IFC but while connectivity solutions share similarities across the commercial and business and VIP spaces, the requirements of end-users are markedly different. Indeed, managing expectations of wealthy businessmen and women, important dignitaries and even royalty who, many times, are used to getting everything they want, can be particularly challenging. That’s not to mention the much smaller size of many aircraft and the additional considerations that must be taken into account when installing enabling hardware such as antennas. Consequently, there are a whole set of different market dynamics at play when it comes to IFC on VIP and business aircraft.

The 2019 edition of this report features an expanded scope and will also dive deeply into the world of IFE and cabin management systems. To reflect the inclusion of these additional product categories, the report has been renamed “The Market for IFEC and CMS Systems on VIP and Business Aircraft – 2019”. Alongside an exhaustive discussion of key drivers and inhibitors of market growth, this report will quantify IFC and IFE/CMS system shipments and revenue between 2018 and 2028. Data is to be split by product type, fitment type, aircraft size, frequency band and geographic region. An in-depth discussion of key technology trends and a chapter profiling key players is presented, too.
