LONDON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ --

- Frost Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on IFE Hardware and Content Markets on Wednesday, 8 July 2009 at 15.00 BST

IFE Markets have seen a list of new product introductions over the last 5 years, ranging from high capacity portable media players, to mobile telephony enabling technologies and fiber optic-based embedded systems. Nonetheless we are now at the bottom of a global recession that has affected all airlines and has pushed the implementation of far-reaching cost cutting measures, effectively restraining any growth potential for IFE suppliers.


To provide decision makers with a focus on the effects of the economic recession, forecast of aircraft and IFE deliveries globally, future trends in both Hardware and Content markets and profiling of key stakeholders, the Aerospace Defence Group at Frost Sullivan ( ) is pleased to announce it will be hosting an online analyst briefing presentation on Wednesday, 8 July at 15:00 BST.

This briefing will benefit IFE suppliers in their evaluation of market trends.

As the air transport industry struggles to exit the worst economic recession in modern history, IFE markets worldwide suffer from airline capacity cuts, aircraft delivery cancellations and order deferrals. The recent Paris Air Show confirmed expectations that any new orders would come from either Middle Eastern or Low Cost Carriers; though the vast majority of these were in the narrowbody sector, traditionally not a favourable IFE market. For IFE hardware and content suppliers, opportunities for growth are scarce; it is essential to understand airline strategies and future demand characteristics, when building their business plans and draw their business development strategies, observes Aviation Senior Consultant Diogenis Papiomytis.
