They are seeking bins that are large, easier and safer to use, aesthetically good, and easy to maintain.
Aircraft Overhead Stowage Bins Market - Insights by Aircraft Type: Narrow-body aircraft is projected to remain the largest aircraft segment of the aircraft overhead stowage bins market during the forecast period, driven by increasing production rates of A320 family and B737 including their fuel-efficient variants (A320neo and B737 Max) and an advancement in bins technology. Wide-body aircraft is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by B787 and A350XWB and upcoming fuel-efficient variants including B777x and A330neo. Aircraft Overhead Stowage Bins Market - Insights by Region: North America is expected to remain the dominant overhead stowage bins market for the aircraft industry during the forecast period. The region is the manufacturing capital of the aerospace industry with the presence of large- to small-sized OEMs, stowage bin manufacturers, and raw material suppliers. Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth during the same period, driven by an increasing demand for commercial aircraft, the opening of assembly plants of Airbus and Boeing in China, indigenous development of commercial aircraft (COMAC C919), and modernization of old aircraft. The supply chain of this market comprises raw material manufacturers, bin component manufacturers, overhead stowage bin manufacturers, aircraft OEMs, and airline companies.
The key aerospace OEMs are Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, ATR, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and key airliners are Lufthansa, Delta Air, Air China, and Singapore Airlines. The key overhead stowage bin manufacturers are Zodiac Aerospace, FACC AG, Boeing Interior Responsibility Center, Jamco Corporation, and Aim Altitude. New product development, collaboration with OEMs, and long-term contracts are some of the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
All the players are developing larger and lightweight bins that can accommodate a large number of rollaboard bags. Source : https://www.stratviewresearch.com/103/aircraft-overhead%20-stowage-bins-market.html.
