Market Highlights:

An electronic flight bag (EFB) is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently. An EFB electronically stores and retrieves documents required for flight operations such as operating manuals, aeronautical charts, airport information, route information and weather.

The EFB system has been expanded to include ground software components that enable airlines to turn airplanes into nodes on their information network. This expansion allows airlines to implement a Electronic Logbook (ELB) application that resides both on the airplane and on multiple ground components. It also allows the future implementation of airborne and ground applications that will enable the airline to operate more efficiently as a business.

Accrediting the colossal growth the Electronics Flight Bag Market is witnessing currently and the potential the market is demonstrating to accrue pervasively further in the years to come; the Market Research Future has recently published  a meticulous study report giving out the complete market insight up till 2021.
