Market Overview

The commercial airport lighting market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period. The market growth is propelled by the construction of new airports and modernization of the existing airport infrastructure around the world, in order to cater to the increasing passenger traffic.

  • The increasing emphasis on decreasing the energy consumption and reducing the carbon emissions in airports are also the major factors driving the commercial airport lighting market.
  • The shift from the use of conventional incandescent lights to solar power LEDs in airports is expected to drive the commercial airport lighting market in the future.

Scope of the Report

The study on the commercial airport lighting market includes all types of lighting systems that are used to indicate directions to aircraft, during landing, takeoff, and parking, in addition to providing support to other aircraft operations. The lights that are installed in runways, taxiways, and airport indoors, along with lights at airside, which consist of VASI (visual approach slope indicator) and PAPI (precision approach path indicator), wind cone lights, and runway edge and runway end lights, as well as ALS, among others, are also included in the report.

Key Market Trends

Runway Lights Segment Dominates the Market

The runway lights segment currently has the largest market share, as commercial airfields are the major consumers of industrial lighting systems and make use of luminaries to guide aircraft around the site during takeoff, landing, repair, testing, and while performing basic land-based maneuvers. Runway entrance lights, also known as REL, are located at entrance taxiways and help provide an indication to aircraft, in terms of takeoff operations.

Asia-Pacific to Experience the Fastest Growth in the Coming Years

Currently, Asia-Pacific has the largest market share, and it is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The construction of new airports and modernization of the existing airports are expected to generate demand for new and innovative lighting systems in this region. China is expected to experience a surge in the number of passengers during the forecast period. To cope with this surge in the number of passengers, China plans to build 74 new civil airports by the end of 2020, taking the total to 260. Also, the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Hyderabad is expected to become a 100% LED-lit airport, and 75% of the work on the project has already been completed. Such initiatives in this region may propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
