Emergency Location Transmitter Market Outlook 2031
The global emergency location transmitter market size was USD 163.48 Million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 242.95 Million by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period, 2023-2031. The growth of the market is attributed to regulation implemented around the world.
Emergency location transmitter (ELT) usage is seen in rescue operations. Earlier, it is used to take hours to know about the accurate place of accident, and rescuers had to manually sweep the suspected area, wasting valuable time that could have been spent attending to the wounded people.
ELTs are currently mandated by several regulatory authorities in various countries for aircrafts for safety reasons. Lightweight aircraft, passenger aircraft, and military aircraft, take are among the aircraft types that utilize these systems.
In April 2011, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) decided to postpone implementation of a proposed rule requiring the replacement of 121.5 MHz ELTs with 406 MHz ELTs. The FCC announced a final rule on March 29, 2021 that pauses its previous ruling regulating ELTs indefinitely.
Changing the battery, calibrating the GPS, and assessing for damage caused by wear and tear are all routine maintenance tasks. If not properly maintained, ELT may not be triggered during an incident or may issue false alarms, resulting in significant fines.
To avoid such events, operators tend to replace their ELTs after a set period of time, which is boosting the demand for durable and reliable ELTs. Ongoing technological innovation provides constant improvement, which make ELTs more compact and dependable.
Growing digitization has aided in the widespread adoption of digital electronic devices in a variety of applications. The incorporation of digital technology into ELTs allow for higher frequency alerts as well as optimal power capacity.

Emergency Location Transmitter Market Segment Insights
End-user Verticals Segment Analysis
On the basis of end-user verticals, the market is segregated into aerospace applications (commercial and defense), maritime applications, and personal applications. The aerospace applications segment is expected to dominates the market during the forecast period. The global emergency location transmitters market is growing due to increased traffic in the commercial aircraft industry.
Most aviation companies are currently looking for 406 MHz ELTs for increased reliability in the event of an emergency. The excellent durability and efficiency of ELTs have increased their deployment in the aerospace industry.
In the event of an emergency, the ELT products can immediately transmit signals to adjacent rescue stations. In 2008, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) implemented a new rule requiring all types of aircraft operating internationally to have at least one emergency location transmitter installed on it.
The accident rate is one fatal accident per about two million flights, based on the global aviation traffic of over 39,000,000 flights. The Aviation Safety Network noted that the level of safety has greatly enhanced due to the integration of ELTs on the aircrafts.
In terms of regions, the global emergency location transmitter market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the industry in the projected timeline.
With more than 7.5 million flights each year, this region accounts for most flights in the year. As a result, the FAA has mandated that all aircraft registered in the US to utilize an ELT on their aircraft.
