The global market for Commercial Aviation Crew Management Software is projected to reach US$1.5 billion by 2025, driven byincreasing number of flight trips and the resulting rise in demand for crew to service these trips.Few of the factors driving the need for additional on-board staff on airplanes such as rise in air passenger traffic as a result in increased spending on international tourism; mushrooming of low-cost carriers; increase in the frequency of flight trips, especially non-stop and long-haul flights; and opening up of new air routes; among others. Increase in revenue passenger kilometers (RPK) requires smarter crew planning. Growing investments in airport infrastructure development and the advancement of aviation technology are pushing down costs of air travel, which in turn is catalyzing the growth in air passenger traffic.Growing competition in the aviation industry is further compelling airline companies to differentiate themselves mostly based on service experience, as it translates to better flight experience and ultimately improved customer loyalty. This is pushing up demand for technology solutions designed to help boost productivity, efficiency and costs such as crew management systems.Crew Management refers to the concept of enhancing the work experience of the flight crew through efficient management techniques, while achieving a significant reduction in operating costs. Crew management is considered as one of the most complex areas of airline operations, with the level of complexity rising constantly with increase in crew sizes and changing expectations of crew members. Crew management is also an area where modernization and automation have significant roles to play, in improving overall efficiency.Crew management systems help drive efficiency; reduce costs; result in higher crew satisfaction; enables easy management of contractual arrangements; easy scheduling and assigning of crews. Cloud-based crew management systems are poised to witness the strongest gains in the coming years, given its ability to manage peak loads through proper allocation of computing power, allowing airlines to reduce resource use during normal loads or valley periods. Cloud-based systems also help in real-time data access and management related to staff mobility.The US constitutes a major market for aviation crew management software. The rising IT budgetary allocations of airlines amidst the growing need for efficient flight and crew management systems continues to fuel growth in the region. The need to improve operational efficiency and cut costs is also spurring demand for crew management software solutions. In Europe, software solutions are playing an increasingly important role in crew management. Growing air traffic and fast paced technology advancements are spurring market growth. With volatile economic environment putting pressure on airline operations, the need for efficient management of fuel cost, crew scheduling and flight timings are expected to spur demand for crew management software solutions, which also help in improving overall operational efficiency.Asia-Pacific and China are collectively expected to witness high growth in the commercial aviation crew management software market. The rapid rise in passenger traffic and the growing number of new aircraft in operation are driving airlines to deploy advanced software solutions for efficient crew management solutions.
