The global aviation warning lights market was valued at US$ 721.4 Mn in 2018 and is anticipated to register a stable CAGR of 6.5% from 2019 to 2027, according to a new research report, published by Transparency Market Research (TMR) titled ‘Aviation Warning Lights Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2027.’ Increasing demand for high-rise skyscrapers and government regulations and policies to increase adoption of obstruction lights for aircraft safety are driving the global aviation warning lights market. The market in North America is expanding at a significant CAGR of 6.6%, owing to numerous technological innovations and development of smart cities in the region.
Rising Demand for High-rise Skyscrapers to Drive Market
Economic growth, high living standards, and rapid development of smart cities are resulting in increased demand for tall buildings across the world. In order to meet this rising demand and attract buyers, players in the construction sector are building high-rise apartments, thereby differentiating their projects from others. Significant developments in the telecommunication industry and wind turbines and rising demand for high-rise skyscrapers are some of the primary factors driving the global aviation warning lights market. High costs of raw materials, such as LEDs, are some of the factors hindering the market.
Several companies are making efforts to carry out research and development activities to introduce innovations in aviation warning lights. In order to prevent risk of collision in case of aircraft flying near the structures, the demand for aviation warning lights is rapidly increasing. Aviation warning lights make structures more visible for passing aircraft. They are usually used at night, although they can be used during the daytime. These lights need to have sufficient brightness in order to be visible at miles away from the structure. Moreover, high-rise buildings offer technological as well as financial advantages in areas with high population density. They have become a distinctive feature of housing accommodation in virtually all densely populated urban areas worldwide. Hence, the rising demand for high-rise skyscrapers is expected to augment the utilization of aviation warning lights across the world during the forecast period.
Government Regulations and Policies to Increase Adoption of Obstruction Lights for Aircraft Safety to Drive Market
Stringent mandatory regulations set for installation safety of aircrafts as well as tall residential and commercial buildings are expected to drive the global aviation warning lights market during the forecast period. Installation of aviation warning lights is the most common and widespread regulation mandated by various governing bodies such as International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). These government/regulatory authorities have mandated the installation of aviation warning lights on tall structures so that they can be visible during the daytime as well as at night. These devices come in different shapes, colors, beam patterns, and light intensity. They offer an acceptable level of safety defined by international regulations and national standards. These factors are boosting the global aviation warning lights market.
Growing Adoption of Aviation Warning Lights led by Rising Incidence of Aircraft Collisions and Technological Advancements to Create Lucrative Opportunities for the Market
Geographically, the global aviation warning lights market has been divided into five major regions. These include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2018, North America was the leading region of the global market, followed by Asia Pacific. This can be primarily attributed to presence of a large number of tall structures and growing incidence of aircraft collisions in North America. Regulations and policies associated with aviation warning lights and early adoption of the LED technology are some of the other factors driving the market in the region. The U.S. held the maximum share of the market in North America in 2018. The market in the country is estimated to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period
