Key Market Trends

Communication Equipment Segment will Continue to Hold a Major Market Share During the Forecast Period

In 2019, the communication equipment segment was accounted for the largest share of the market. A large percentage of the segment has been primarily attributed to the fact that the communication between pilots and ground control operators is essential for an orderly flow of information regarding the aircraft information for air traffic management. Earlier, voice communication systems, which involved the transmission of information between air traffic controllers and pilots, were primarily used to manage air traffic. However, these conventional voice communication systems cannot function effectively in congested airspace, which has propelled the need to develop advanced communication equipment for air traffic control, attracting huge investments. Thus, this segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Air Traffic Control Equipment Market key Trends

Asia-Pacific Market to Grow with the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

Currently, North America is the largest for air traffic control because many airports in the United States and Canada have been installing new ATC equipment for air traffic management. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market over the forecast period. Factors, such as increasing air travel in the area due to reductions in airfares and the growth in the number of people who could afford air travel, focus on free and fair trade agreements, implementation of stringent aviation safety regulations, and airport infrastructure developments, have been driving the growth of the market in the region.

Competitive Landscape

Thales Group, Harris Corporation, Indra Sistemas SA, Raytheon Company, and Collins Aerospace (United Technologies Corporation) are some of the prominent players in the market. New contracts from developing economies are expected to help the players extend their market presence. For instance, in May 2018, Harris Corporation announced that it received a USD 141 million contract to develop the Airports Authority of India’s (AAI) Futuristic Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) initiative. Under the contract, Harris  Corporation may upgrade network operations, boosting security, and enhancing the performance and quality of India’s air traffic management (ATM) network, all while slashing telecommunications expenses. Such contracts are expected to help the players to further increase their dominance in the market.
