Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Market to Achieve USD 2.2 Billion by 2030, Demonstrating a 6.10% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2023 to 2030.

Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Market Overview:

The global electronic flight bag market is likely to demonstrate notable revenue growth during the current decade. Growing investments in technology development would drive the market. Electronic Flight Bag Market Size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2022. The Electronic Flight Bag market industry is projected to grow from USD 1.59 Billion in 2023 to USD 2.2 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.10% during the forecast period (2023 – 2030).

An Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is a digital app device used on an iPad or tablet on a flight deck, where all the flight briefing information, including flight charts and documentation, is stored to help improve the performance & efficiency of the pilot and flight crews’ workflow. An EFB app contains and integrates huge amounts of flight information, including the operational flight plan & schedule, crew rosters, load sheets, weather/ NOTAM data, and much more.

Thus, the device saves a significant amount of paper loads and reduces flight weight, helping to improve flight performance and efficiency. Also, EFBs can calculate certain aviation data such as fuel usage, flight performance, and weight & balance. An electronic flight bag also works as a communication channel for flight dispatchers, enabling messaging services for pilots and aviation staff to exchange flight briefing updates using flight dispatch software. 

Using an electronic flight bag offers many benefits to the flight crew and airlines, such as cost savings due to reduced aircraft weight, increased fuel efficiency, and more payload, as well as improved staff efficiency, reduced paper consumption & process, increased safety removing manual processes & less human error, and improved communication between ground team & flight crew.

Airline companies are increasingly utilizing electronic flight bags to optimize aircraft speed based on fuel consumption. Aviation Administration agencies worldwide are rapidly developing frameworks and policies for adopting ever-evolving EFB technology to meet the industry’s demands. Utilizing the Cost Index and flight management systems available in FEB helps optimize aircraft speed and fuel consumption.

Therefore, EFB software will continue to provide efficient improvements for airlines and operators. In addition to connecting the airlines’ workflow, an electronic flight bag allows streamlined communications with flight dispatchers and pilots to help ensure the efficiency of the flight crew’s workloads.
