EFBs enhance fuel efficiency, operational efficiency, and cockpit operations, making them essential for commercial aviation, next-generation aircraft, and airline fleets.

* Major airlines have been the primary adopters of Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) systems due to the applicability offered by installed or portable EFB devices.

* Small airline companies have been hesitant to utilize EFB technology to its full potential.

* Some of these airlines are now considering implementing EFB systems, while others are still in the process of understanding the fundamental features of EFB technology.

* These airlines have not fully embraced wireless technology to enhance customer service and operational efficiency.

* Once fully adopted, EFB systems will significantly improve service performance in terms of both operational reliability and customer service.

* Flight technicians, ground engineers, and flight attendants will be able to perform their functions more efficiently with the help of EFB systems.

* The adoption of basic commercial EFB system functionalities, such as flight information and control tools, will initially hinder the growth of the global commercial aircraft EFB systems market during the forecast period.

* However, as more airlines adopt advanced EFB system functionalities, the market is expected to experience substantial growth.
