Dublin, July 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tztc72/global_headsup) has announced the addition of the "Global Heads-up Display (HUD) Market in the Civil Aviation Sector 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The global HUD market in civil aviation to grow at a CAGR of 8.14%, in terms of unit shipment, over the period 2014-2019.
The report, Global HUD Market in Civil Aviation 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. It covers the market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The operational benefits of HUDs have encouraged commercial airlines such as China Eastern Airlines and Qatar Airways to equip their new fleets with HUDs. In 2013 China Eastern Airlines placed an order for 58 Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft installed with Rockwell Collins' HUD systems; in 2015, Qatar Airways announced that it would install HUDs in its A350 XWBs and A380 aircraft fleets. In the same year, China-based Hainan Airlines also announced the installation of Rockwell Collins' HUD systems in its next-generation Boeing 737 aircraft and flight simulators.
According to the report, OEMs in the aviation industry are adopting HUDs to improve the operational capabilities of aircraft. For instance, in winter when fog impedes visibility, HUDs can provide a pilot with better navigational capability and enable better control over the aircraft. HUDs also increase the capability of aircraft during other critical situations. The majority of the air accidents that occur during landing and take-off are due to collisions with other aircraft. Therefore civil aviation authorities are taking steps such as introducing lower landing minima and mandating the implementation of HUDs in new aircraft fleets. This will increase the growth prospects of the market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that the absence of a common set of HUD-specific rules and regulation will result in complex certification process, limiting their wider adoption.
