Valour Consultancy’s extensive aviation market research is widely respected. Our origins are in generating insights around passenger-led solutions, most notably In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) and In-Flight Entertainment (IFE), but we now support clients through a body of work spanning the entire fuselage.

Our syndicated report portfolio has quickly expanded to cover aircraft seating, cockpit/cabin applications, flat panel antennas, payment solutions and in-seat power. We also publish quarterly trackers to keep stakeholders updated on installation activity, the addressable market, new wins, and key trends.
