Key Market Trends

Autonomous Robots are Helping the Airport Security Segment

  • Currently, the airport security segment has the highest share among all the segments. Airport security is one of the biggest concerns faced by airport officials, worldwide. The rise in terrorism across the world has led to airport officials taking extra precaution and being highly focused toward airport security.
  • To prevent any unwanted incidents, airports around the world have taken a step further and have started the testing of autonomous robots, which is expected to help security officials provide adequate security at the airport.
  • Airports, such as Hamad International Airport and La Guardia Airport, have started deploying security robots to provide the next level of airport security. The robots come equipped with an in-built facial recognition system, cameras, and sensor. They can measure pulse rate remotely, and thus, detect suspicious persons, credit cards, fake currencies, abandoned objects, and explosives, without disturbing the passenger flow at the airport terminal.

Asia-Pacific is likely to Register Highest Growth in the Airport Robots Market during the Forecast Period

  • In the airport robots market, the growth of the Asia-Pacific region is expected to be more, during the forecast period. China is one of the fastest-growing air travel markets. According to the IATA (International Air Transport Association), China is set to displace the United States as the world’s largest aviation market, by mid-2020. The rebalancing of China’s economy is likely to support strong passenger demand over the long term. 
  • Moreover, since 2017, Shenzhen Bao'an Airport in China is engaged in operating Anbot, a robot programmed to carry out security checks at the departure hall of Terminal 3. Developed by the Shenzhen Public Security Bureau and the Chinese National Defense University, the robot has been fitted with four high-definition cameras, as well as a facial recognition software, which can take pictures of passengers and send them for analysis at security stations. Such developments are expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market.
Airport Robots Market Analysis

Competitive Landscape

The airport robot market is consolidated, with only a handful of players controlling the market. LG Electronics Inc. and Stanley Robotics are the leading players in the market. Both the companies have been occupying leading positions in the market for a long time. The companies have been engaged in various initiatives and product innovations, which have led them to strengthen their presence in the market. For example, LG Electronics Inc. reported setting trial services for several airport guide robots, as well as airport cleaning robots, at the Incheon International Airport (South Korea).

Recent Development

In October 2021, Kansai Airports announced that it deployed Secom Robot X2, an autonomous patrolling robot, at Terminal 2 of Kansai International Airport (KIX) and at the airport’s railway station. The new surveillance robot can autonomously navigate patrol routes using a laser sensor to identify its location and monitoring various areas at the airport.

In July 2021, Singapore Changi Airport deployed Avidbots Neo floor robot cleaners developed by Avidbots Corp. to enhance the productivity of their cleaning teams and reduce costs. The Avidbots Neo is a purpose-built floor scrubbing robot integrated with navigation technology, sensors and software with elegant hardware.
