Advanced Airport Technologies Market Analysis

The advanced airport technologies market is expected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 outbreak has preceded one of the major challenges to the sustainability of the air travel industry at the worldwide level. Despite the decrease in revenues of airport operators due to the impact of the pandemic, the authorities have continued to invent advanced airport technologies. With passenger traffic projected to witness a gradual recovery, airport operators are expected to increase their investments in airport technologies in the coming years.

Airports are now recognizing the need to move toward more efficient and less intrusive security to help them reduce the high cost of security implementation and to provide a hassle-free experience to travelers.

The rise in the number of passengers has caused problems to the airports in dealing with the arising passenger problems. Service disruptions, long check-in lines, and baggage issues are the three main areas of passenger discomfort. To tackle these challenges and improve the experience of the customer, airports worldwide have adopted newer technologies, such as self-check-in kiosks and face recognition systems, that are helping the airports in revolutionizing the check-in process.

The privatization of airports has helped the market, as airport operators are providing world-class facilities and systems to gain a competitive advantage over others.

Advanced Airport Technologies Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Advanced Airport Technologies Market according to our research experts:

The Digital Signage Systems Segment to Grow with the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

Currently, the passenger, baggage, and cargo handling control systems segment have the highest market share of all the segments, as they are now used widely in terminal operations and airline departure control, like passenger check-in, customs, baggage handling, screening, etc. But the growth of the airport digital signage systems segment is anticipated to be more during the forecast period. As the airports and airlines modernize and adopt solutions to make the airports more automated, digital displays are now being adopted on a large scale in every sphere of the airport. Digital signage and touch-enabled kiosks are installed to help ease and enrich the passenger journey, boost passenger satisfaction, and ensure safety at airports. Advancements in the integration of smartphones with Bluetooth-enabled beacon technology are helping the development of digital signs, which can deliver highly relevant information to passengers passing by, alert them regarding the whereabouts of shops and restaurants, and simplify the airline lounge admission for members. Thus, the high adoption of these technologies is driving the growth of the segment.

Asia-Pacific Market to Grow Rapidly in the Future

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest demand during the forecast period. The growth of the demand for the market is due to the ongoing investment plans of the civil aviation authorities to construct new airports and the increasing threat of terrorist activities at the airports in the region. With the recovering passenger traffic at the airports in the region, countries like China and India are increasing their investments in constructing new airports, expanding existing airports, and modernization of aviation infrastructure in the region. Currently, more than USD 200 billion in airport infrastructure projects are ongoing in the Asia-Pacific region. China, India, South Korea, the Philippines, and Vietnam are major countries undertaking such projects. In addition to investments in constructing new airports, airport operators are partnering with companies to introduce innovative security systems. On this note, in October 2021, Kansai Airports deployed Secom Robot X2 at Terminal 2 of Kansai International Airport and the airport’s railway station. The new robots can autonomously navigate patrol routes that feature a 360° camera, a stereo camera, a PTZ camera, a sensing functions laser sensor, an internal temperature and battery temperature sensor bumper sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, and a PSD sensor. Such investments are anticipated to generate demand for new advanced airport technologies for airports and new facilities during the forecast period.
