Global IFE market to grow at a CAGR of 13% during the period 2016-2020.
Globally, airlines are seeking to retrofit their aircraft with the latest technological upgrades for cost-effective operational efficiency and increased life span. Different upgrading, retrofitting, and modernizing functions are performed on avionics, IFEs, and aircraft cabin interiors (food storage equipment, seats, galley, windshields and lavatory, windows, and aerodynamic retrofit) depending on the aircraft type.
One such upgrade is the installation of in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems that provides entertainment facilities to passengers during their air travel. Although primarily equipped in full-service carriers, these systems are being adopted by budget carriers due to increased demand from passengers.
The analysts forecast the global IFE market to grow at a CAGR of 13% during the period 2016-2020.
