Market Overview

The America air traffic management market is projected to grow with a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period.

  • The growth in demand for air travel and aerial connectivity in North America and Latin America region has pushed the airlines to introduce new routes and increase flight movements, to cater to its growing demand. This is anticipated to generate demand for new ATC solutions in the region.
  • The construction of new airports as well as expansion and modernization plans of the existing airports in the region is anticipated to propel the demand for new ATM infrastructure during the forecast period.
  • The introduction of new air traffic management solutions like Remote and Virtual Tower (RVT) as well as automation and blockchain technologies are expected to simplify the operations of air traffic and navigation service providers, thereby creating new market opportunities for the air traffic management market in the region.

Scope of the Report

Air traffic management (ATM) encompasses all systems that assist aircraft to depart from an airport, transit airspace, and land at a destination airport. The report on air traffic management covers the study on airport radars. Military air traffic management is included in the study. Military air traffic management (ATM) is provided to both military and civil registered air systems in the airspace, which is jointly managed with civil ATM agencies. Unmanned traffic management (UTM) is excluded from the study.

Key Market Trends

Modernization of Existing Airport Infrastructure in the Region is Anticipated to Generate Demand for Advanced Air Traffic Management

The aviation authorities in Latin America and North America are emphasizing on the modernization of their airspace management infrastructure and processes, to deal with the anticipated rapid growth in air traffic in the coming years. The FAA is trying to put into effect an ambitious plan to upgrade its air traffic facilities and support its NextGen plan to radically transform the US airspace and render it safer, more efficient, and environmentally responsible. In January 2020, the FAA selected Raytheon Company to enhance the usability and reduce operational costs for the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) for ensuring the safety of national airspace. Similarly, Argentina’s air navigation service provider, EANA is currently enhancing air traffic control (ATC) infrastructure in the country by integrating performance-based navigation (PBN), implementing 100% radar coverage and redesigning the Baires airspace. Such modernization plans of airport infrastructure in the region are expected to propel the segment growth during the forecast period.

North America Accounted for a Major Market Share in 2019

The North America region currently dominates the market and is expected to continue its domination during the forecast period. This is mainly due to robust investments in the expansion and modernization of airports and air traffic management solutions in the airports of the United States and Canada. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) maintains and modernizes these facilities to ensure that they are consistent with evolving air traffic operational needs and airport expansions in the United States. It mandates dual redundancy of the system, signifying the existence of a fully operational duplicate system that kicks into operation in case of a failure in the primary system. The air traffic management providers in the region are introducing new technologies to enhance the efficiency of their operations. For instance, in April 2019, Nav Canada awarded a contract to NATS to install an intelligent approach system at Toronto Pearson Airport to help improve flight punctuality. The modernization of airports that have old and aging ATM solutions in the region is anticipated to bolster the growth of the market.
