The total sales reflects a low point in the report’s nine-year history, with the fourth quarter specifically marking sales off 28.1 percent as compared to the prior year’s final quarter. While the beginning of 2020 was marked by steep declines in sales as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, sales saw a rebound somewhat in the last six months of the year. Of the total 2020 sales, 55.9 percent came from the retrofit market, illuminating the anecdotal evidence from owners and avionics installers used the downtime to make upgrades to their aircraft. Forward-fit—or OEM installations on new aircraft—registered 44.9 percent of sales. Nearly 74 percent of sales took place in the North American market (Canada and the US) with the balance in markets around the world.
