Fuel-efficient variants of major aircraft programs

The aircraft lavatory system market offers a healthy growth opportunity over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 530.8 million in 2023. Increasing commercial aircraft deliveries to support rising passenger and freight traffic, the introduction of fuel-efficient variants of major aircraft programs (B737 Max and A320neo), an advancement in lavatory design, and growing aircraft fleet size are the key factors that are driving the demand for lavatory systems in the global aircraft industry.

Wide-body aircraft to remain the largest aircraft segment of the market

The lavatory is one of the most important systems in an aircraft cabin interior and must withstand high velocities and abrasion without spilling a drop. It should also be durable and minimize water usage to make the plane lighter for achieving a higher fuel efficiency and has the ability to withstand frequent usage by the passengers. The lavatory design varies from aircraft to aircraft and airlines to airlines depending upon their requirements. Lavatory manufacturers have gradually improved its design, making it lightweight using advanced materials. They have also shrunk lavatory size without sacrificing passenger comfort. They have also improved the toilet system from earlier reusable to recirculating to vacuum toilet over a period of time and are now upgrading the existing vacuum toilet to compact vacuum toilet with high performance.

The aircraft lavatory system market is segmented based on the aircraft type as Narrow-Body Aircraft, Wide-Body Aircraft, Very Large Body Aircraft, Regional Aircraft, and Business Aircraft. Wide-body aircraft is projected to remain the largest aircraft segment of the global aircraft lavatory system market during the forecast period, driven by increasing production rates of B787 and A350XWB, upcoming fuel-efficient variants including B777x and A330neo, and an advancement in lavatory technology. Narrow-body aircraft is also likely to witness a healthy growth during the forecast period, driven by the introduction of fuel-efficient variants of the best-selling aircraft programs (A320neo and B737 Max).

Vacuum flush toilets are considered to be less odor inducing

Based on the toilet type, the aircraft lavatory system market is segmented as Reusable Toilet System, Recirculating Toilet System, and Vacuum Toilet System. There has been a continuous shift from recirculating toilet system to the vacuum toilet system in all the next-generation aircraft. Vacuum flush toilets are considered to be less odor inducing and usually light in weight which helps in saving the fuel by reducing the need to carry large reserves of blue recirculating water and minimizing the risk of Blue Ice due to the spilling of water. Major lavatory manufacturers are developing advanced vacuum toilet-based lavatory system by making it lighter in weight using composite
materials. It will reduce the overall maintenance cost and remove waste rapidly during the flush cycle.

The overall competition is fierce in the aircraft lavatory system market with half a dozen companies extending their offerings in this market space. All of them are trying to develop advanced and modular lavatories meeting OEMs’
and airlines’ needs. In 2013, B/E Aerospace (now a part of Rockwell Collins, Inc.) developed an advanced lavatory system for B737 which is slightly compact than the standard 3X3 foot size lavatory.

North America to remain the largest market

Based on the regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for lavatory systems in the aircraft industry. The region is the manufacturing hub of the major commercial aircraft manufacturer, tier players, and raw material suppliers. Boeing is the largest procurer of the lavatory systems in the region. Europe is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by increasing production rates of A350XWB and A320 family including Neo version. Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, driven by a host of factors including the opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China, increasing demand for commercial aircraft to support rising passenger traffic, and indigenous development of commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ).
