Driven by the emergence of the digital passenger with mobile device connectivity demanding high quality, secure, high speed, and economical connectivity as well as advancements in broadband IP technologies, the global market for in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity is poised to witness growth in the long run. Aviation industry dynamics and air passenger traffic are critical determinants of growth in the in-flight Wi-Fi market. The rise in air passenger traffic leads to increase in use of bandwidth intensive applications and media rich content on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Important growth drivers include growing popularity of social networking when on-the-move; rapid proliferation of smartphones and other smart devices and growing use case of these devices in numerous infotainment functions leading to high demand for mobile data services onboard; and evolution of connected aircrafts. Other factors to impact market prospects in the near term include the growing penchant for travel among Millennials and their high dependence on mobile capabilities and digital technologies; declining cost of hardware; advancements in IFEC (Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity) technologies, and growing adoption of satellite-based solutions due to lack of ATG (air-to-ground) networks, lower reliability and lesser speed of ATG technology. There is however disparity in IFC solutions offered, in terms of speeds, coverage and capacity of each vendor or provider. The key challenge in delivering IFC is the lack of adequate global signal coverage and consequent lack of provision of enough services to meet consumer demand.
