Civil segment dominated the aircraft lightning protection market size owing to its large airplane fleet accommodating air passengers. Increasing disposable income and reduced airfare is enabling the operators to strengthen its customer base, thereby resulting in increase of flight iterations. The rising flight iterations is expected to support the industry revenue generation till 2024.
Line-fit segment from the aircraft lightning protection market size contributed for highest revenue share in 2017. This can be attributed to deployment of lightning protective materials for ensuring the airplane safety. Protective materials including transient voltage suppressors, grounding wires, and expanded metal foils are deployed on the airplane during fabrication. Continuous efforts for reducing the weight of metal foil and improving the conductivity will further support the product demand. Moreover, retrofit segment will foresee sturdy growth owing to the rising MRO facilities.
North America leads the aircraft lightning protection market size owing to the increasing production and deliveries of airplanes. Government of the U.S & Canada and FAA introduced regulations regarding the weight of empty plane which will surge the application for composite materials. Implementation of procedures regarding conductive treatment for composites will increase the product demand.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness around 5% CAGR over the forecast timeframe owing to multiplying number of air passengers. Moreover, the reduction of airfare in developing economies such as India and China by the airline operators will further strengthen regional share.

Lightning protection material dominated the industry and accounted for 94% of overall revenue in 2017. The materials are deployed on the outer surface and in structure for protecting the airplanes against lightning strikes. The static wicks and grounding wires are positioned on the trailing edges for discharging the charge into atmosphere. While expanded metal foil is positioned in the structure above composite material for improving the conductivity. Moreover, deployment of static wicks to reduce hinderances in radio communication and transmitting static discharges will propel the aircraft lightning protection market demand over the forecast period.
Rising usage of composite materials for improving fuel efficiency and reducing airplane weight will trigger the industry growth over the forecast period. These materials comprise of multiple benefits, however resisting current flow property may damage the airplane structure. Commercial airplanes witness lightning strike at least once in a time span of 1,000 hours of flight duration. The amount of the damaged caused to the airplane depends on the amount of energy dissipated, strike duration, and exit & attachment locations. Manufacturers deploy conductive material on the outer surface to improve the airplane conductivity, positively influencing the aircraft lightning protection market growth from 2018 to 2024.
