This can be attributed to their growing popularity among pilots for protection against UV radiation and other harmful effects caused by sunlight exposure while flying at high altitudes. Safety glasses are also gaining traction due to their ability protect pilots from injuries in case of an accident or emergency landing situation. Based on application, airliner segment dominated the global pilot glass market in 2017.

Global Pilot Glasses Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Pilot glasses are eyeglasses specifically designed for pilots. They have amber-colored lenses that improve contrast and help pilots see better in difficult lighting conditions.

Sun Glass:

The sun glass market is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to the increasing demand for Pilot Glasses. The industry has been witnessing an increase in the usage of sun glasses by pilots during flights as it helps them protect their eyes from harmful ultra-violet rays and infrared radiations, which can cause eye fatigue and skin damage.

Pilots are exposed to several environmental hazards while flying including extreme heat, cold, pressure, noise and electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

Safety Glass:

Safety glass is a type of glass that has been designed to meet the safety requirements for personnel working in hazardous environments. The properties of safety glass make it shatterproof and resistant to thermal shock, which makes it ideal for use in pilot glasses.

The global market for pilot glasses that use safety glass is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2018-2022 owing to the increasing demand from commercial aviation industry and high growth potential in aerospace & defense industry.

Application Insights:

The general aviation application segment led the market and accounted for more than 30.0% share of the global revenue in 2017. The demand for glass pilot glasses is expected to witness growth owing to rising adoption of advanced safety equipment by pilots operating commercial aircraft, business aircraft, and helicopters. Moreover, increasing number of general aviation operations due to low cost as compared to owning a private jet is anticipated to boost product demand over the forecast period.

The business aircraft application segment is projected register a significant CAGR from 2018 to 2030 on account of growing trend among companies regarding providing luxury services with an emphasis on safety features including protective headgear and goggles equipped with high visibility lenses for their employees who fly on company planes or helicopters frequently.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to rising disposable income, improved standards of living, and increasing passenger traffic in countries such as China and India. In addition, an increase in airfares has led to a rise in domestic travel within these countries. This trend is projected to drive demand for general aviation aircraft across Asia Pacific over the next eight years.

The European region accounted for more than 25% of global revenue share in 2017 owing to stringent government regulations pertaining safety glass usage for commercial aircraft manufacturing and operation along with growing adoption by business jets manufacturers across Europe since last few years due high shatterproof nature of pilot glasses which helps avoid injuries caused by broken glass during accidents or bird strikes etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for luxury products: The global market for luxury goods is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period, reaching a value of US,472 billion by 2020. This growth can be attributed to the increasing disposable income of consumers in developing countries and the growing popularity of luxury brands among millennials. Pilot glasses are considered as a luxurious product and their demand is expected to increase in line with the overall growth of the luxury goods market.
  • Rising awareness about eye health: There has been an increase in awareness about eye health in recent years, which has led to an increase in demand for corrective eyewear such as pilot glasses. This trend is likely to continue over the next few years as more people become aware of the importance of protecting their eyes from harmful UV radiation and other factors that can damage vision.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies has led to innovative designs and features being incorporated into pilot glasses, which is attracting more consumers towards this category of eyewear. For instance, manufacturers are now offering polarized lenses that reduce glare and improve contrast while flying or driving under bright conditions outdoors . Such technological advancements are likely to boost sales growth for pilot glasses over the next few years .
