Asia is expected to account for almost 38% of the total expected deliveries by 2035. This growth can be attributed to the increase in demand for aircraft and a rise in the adoption rate of aircraft sensors in these aircraft.

Based on connectivity, the wireless sensors segment to witness the highest growth in the aircraft sensors market from 2019 to 2025

The wireless sensors segment is expected to grow significantly in the future due to the advantages it offers over wired sensors. In addition, increased deployment of structural health monitoring systems in aircraft, which use IoT technologies, is also expected to drive the growth of the wireless sensors segment during the forecast period.

North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the aircraft sensors market in 2019, whereas, the aircraft sensors market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the aircraft sensors market in 2019. Major aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing (US), Bombardier (Canada), Lockheed Martin (US), Bell Helicopter (US), and Sikorsky Aircraft (US), among others, are based in this region, and they witness huge demand for aircraft sensors. North America is also estimated to lead the aircraft sensors market during the forecast period, in terms of market share.

The Asia Pacific aircraft sensors market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the presence of emerging aircraft manufacturers, such as COMAC (China) and Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (Japan), among others. Furthermore, economic growth of countries in the region, increased air travel, rise in air passenger traffic, and increased need for new aircraft are few other reasons for the growth of the aircraft sensors market in this region.
