Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Installation of Advanced Systems in Airports to Drive Growth

The governments and other regulatory bodies of several countries across the globe are focusing on developing and creating smart airports by partnering up with industry giants. International, as well as domestic airports are being installed with technologically advanced systems to provide hassle-free traveling experience to the passengers. Airport authorities are also replacing the aging equipment and systems with automated and highly unique systems for reducing the waiting time of passengers. Apart from that, the rising demand for eco-friendly systems would accelerate the demand for green and smart airports in the forthcoming years. However, owing to the expensive nature of such unique systems, several countries nowadays prefer outsourcing the security services from third-party companies. It may hamper the smart airport market growth in the coming years.


Non-aeronautical Segment to Be Impacted Severely Owing to Covid-19 Pandemic

Based on airport operation, the market is divided into non-aeronautical and aeronautical. Out of these, the non-aeronautical segment is anticipated to grow rapidly throughout the forecast period by generating high smart airport share. It would occur as non-aeronautical revenue is considered to be the major source of revenue in numerous prominent airports in Asia Pacific. Approximately 45% of the region’s revenue comes from the non-aeronautical sector.

Our research states that the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has given rise to preventive measures, such as complete lockdown. It has further reduced the passenger traffic worldwide and is set to remain so for the first quarter for 2020. These revenues play a vital role as they solely cannot serve all capital costs and airport operations. The sudden decline in the number of passengers backed by the coronavirus infection is set to impact the ecosystem negatively. It comprises of service providers, suppliers, airlines, and airports.

Regional Analysis-

Rising Air Traffic to Bolster Growth in Asia Pacific

In 2019, North America held USD 1.28 billion revenue and is set to be the fastest-growing region in the coming years. This growth is attributable to the increasing expenditure on modernizing and upgrading the conventional systems in airports in the U.S. Apart from that, the presence of governing agencies such as Transportation Security Administration (TSA), as well as reputed manufacturers such as Raytheon Technologies and Honeywell International are set to augment the market growth in this region.

Europe, on the other hand, is expected to remain in the second position fueled by the rising demand for green and smart airports. Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow rapidly in the near future stoked by the increasing air traffic in countries, such as India, Singapore, and China. The Middle East and Africa would exhibit a significant CAGR on account of the increasing investments in the domestic airports located in Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E.
