COVID-19 Impact:

COVID-19 Decreased Product Adoption in Different Sectors Due to Closure of Training Programs

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative effect on the market growth as some training centers were shut down for a temporary period in 2020, which ultimately decreased the demand for networked simulation systems. Since the healthcare sector had intensified its efforts toward controlling the spread of the virus, the number of medical training decreased during this period. These aspects had a severe impact on the product adoption.


Simulators to be Widely Used in Aerospace & Defense Sector to Train and Test New Recruits

Based on end use industry, the market is segmented into aerospace & defense, automotive, marine & naval, and media & entertainment. The aerospace & defense segment dominated the market as these devices can be used to train new recruits, thereby improving the training safety and efficiency.

Rising Demand for Safety and Efficiency to Boost Product Use in Training Applications

By application, the market is segmented into training, research & development, and others. The training segment held a dominant simulator market share in 2022 as these devices are useful in enhancing the efficiency and safety of training, allowing them to develop their skills in a controlled environment.

Large-scale Application in Automotive, Aerospace, and Energy Sectors to Fuel the Use of Full Flight Simulation

In terms of type, the market is segmented into full flight simulation, fixed base simulation, driving simulation, and others. The full flight simulation segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period as this type of device simulates the experiences of operating an aircraft, thereby giving pilots an idea of how flying a real one will feel like.

With respect to region, the market covers North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
