aerospace expenditure to 2% of GDP. Moreover, the U.K. Ministry of Defense signed
a deal with California-based General Atomics worth $125m to supply drones equipped
with head up displays for the U.K. defense sector.
Head Up Display Market Segment Analysis – By Application
One of the
significant growth factors for the Head Up Display Market is the deployment of
HUDs in civil aircrafts and passenger vehicles. The aviation segment for the Head Up Display Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 24.2%
in the forecast period 2021-2026. Manufacturers have been increasingly forced
to integrate advanced features such as head-up display with Liquid crystal
displays and digital micromirror device to improve Display luminance. Research is
being carried out to design innovative HUD interfaces aiming to reduce operator
distraction and improve performance. Boeing has introduced its 787 advanced
flight deck, incorporating head up displays, that integrates dual global
positioning system receivers with triple-redundant flight management systems
that enhances precise flight vision through aircraft steering and instrument
landing systems. Additionally, recently issued regulations have significantly
fuelled demand for head up displays in the aerospace and automtovie arenas.
Civil Aviation Administration of China has mandated adoption of head up
displays to facilitate enhanced projection of data in Chinese airlines by 2025.
Such initiatives have propelled demand for head up displays in the aerospace
Head Up Display Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
North America holds a dominant share of 37% in the Head Up Display Market in 2020, which can be attributed to increased investments in the aerospace sector. According to the Aerospace Industries Association, aerospace exports in U.S. have increased by 26% from $113 billion in 2012 to $154 billion in 2019.

Head Up Display Market Drivers
Increased Investments In The Military Sector
In the military and defense
aviation sector, there has been a significant increase in the deployment of
head up displays. This rise is attributed to the capability of HUDs to direct
the pilot’s vision outside the aircraft and provide all the necessary flight
information to the pilot. This results in an increase in overall efficiency and
safety, which are essential considerations for the defense and military sectors.
Moreover, demand for real-time monitoring of data by on-board instruments such
as head up displays for improved aircraft steering and instrument landing
systems in military aircrafts has consequently led to increased investments for
deployment of head up displays in the aerospace sector. For instance, the
Italian Ministry of Defense increased its investment on surveillance drones
from $506m in 2016 to $991m in 2019. These drones incorporate head up displays,
which is consequently boosting demand for head up displays in the aerospace
Rise In Production Of Civil Aircrafts
As per the International Air Transport Association,
passengers travelling by domestic airlines globally increased from 561 billion
in 2018 to 589 billion in 2019. The rise in passenger traffic globally has
subsequently called for an increase in the production of civil aircrafts. According
to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), approximately 39,000
aircrafts are estimated to be produced by 2027. This is anticipated to
significantly increase demand for head up displays in civil aircrafts.
Moreover, companies are focusing on developing innovative head up displays for
enhancing precision within aircrafts. Netherlands-based Airbus SE has been developing an
enhanced flight vision system (EFVS) to be equipped on its aircrafts still
under production. This research is aimed at improving airport access for aircrafts,
with the help of head up displays, regardless of weather or landing aids on the
ground. This has compelled manufacturers to integrate
advanced features such as head-up display with Liquid crystal displays and digital
micromirror device which improve Display luminance.

applications, head up displays need to display the relevant information within
a desired time frame. However, system delays often occur as a result of several
factors including sensor delay, system processing speed and display update
rate. Regardless of the source, the overall system delay results in the
presentation of information that is inconsistent with the aircraft’s current
state, further leading to errors in flight operation and reduced overall
