Advancements in the aircraft windows and windshields, and its increasing applications to boost the market growth

There are continuous advancements taking place in the aircraft windows and windshields. Aircraft OEMs are replacing traditional pull-down plastic shade window with larger dimming windows that can be adjusted to let in desired quantity of light. One of the most notable collaborations for the development of these windows is between Gentex and PPG Aerospace. The new window enables controlling the window by the passengers through a transparent color video touchscreen on the window or directly by the crew through the flight attendant panel to regulate light and heat, reduce noise inside the cabin and other services. New innovative products can help airlines build their brand image by offering creative tailored use of this new interactive passenger amenity and can also maximize revenue as a result of increased value of window seats.

European carriers are currently driven towards more efficient planes for reducing fuel costs as well as to comply with the EU’s Emissions Trading System, the cap-and-trade scheme designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, airlines have been taking steps to cut fuel consumption by switching to lighter interior component products, which will also boost the demand for aircraft windows with less weight.
