Commercial Aviation Aircraft Windows And Windshields Market, By Technology (Plexiglas, Smart Glass,

Published Date: | Report Code : AD1956940

Aircraft windows and windshields are intended to allow outdoor viewing while also protecting passengers from the outdoor setting. Modern aircraft windows and windshields are designed on the concept of “fail-safe,” thus minimizing the chances of complete window failure. The structure comprises of several layers of interlay glass plywood between them. Windows also acts as insulators for heat use. In the case of passenger cabin windows, the outer panel protects passengers from the cold external environment while the inner panel prevents moisture from condensing and frosting.

Maintenance and repair costs associated with airplane parts and components are a significant part of operating costs for airplane operators. For instance, by installing thicker windows glass plies along with bushes, the likelihood of cracks around the bolt hole minimizes. The thickness of the window will be reduced during repair and maintenance. If this window thickness decreases beyond the normal requirements defined then the windows in aircraft can no longer be used.  Thus, using thicker windows (although preference for lightweight fabrics) improves the service life of the windows as it enables for more repairs that can be carried out without achieving the window’s minimum limit thickness. In general, the cost of replacing the aircraft window can vary from USD 2,000 to USD 300,000 depending on the type and window of the aircraft. In addition to the costs involved, maintenance and repair of aircraft windows are an extremely advanced job. Together with fresh aircraft development programs, the increasing amount of aircraft globally is expected to boost the commercial aircraft windows and windshields market.
