Flying, an increasingly intelligent experience
A new study reveals that there will be an exponential growth in sales of modern equipment to support the growth in passenger traffic at air terminals
A new report from Insight Partners reveals that the size of the global smart airport market is expected to grow from $26.07 billion in 2022 to $66.76 billion by 2028, with a growth rate of 17.0% forecast. between 2022 and 2028.
The study has covered markets such as the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Argentina
The growth of the smart airport market is driven by increasing investments by airport authorities for the deployment of connected systems and vendors' focus on customer-centric offerings, the emerging need for cost-effective airport systems. Collins Aerospace, Amadeus IT Group SA, Honeywell International, SITA Aero and Indra Sistemas SA are the key market players that are expected to hold a significant market share in 2022.
Based on the analysis, Asia Pacific is likely to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.
North America has a well-established aviation hub with more than 14,500 private and 5,082 public airports in the US In that region, investments in airports have increased to develop smart infrastructure. As the global aviation industry began to recover from the losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, many airport authorities have shifted their focus to developing smart airports; The United States is one of the main sources of revenue generation for the North American aviation sector.
According to the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), the US handles more than 16.4 million flights a year (of these, more than 10 million flights are passenger flights), including more than 45,000 daily flights. These flights are supported by ~520 ATC towers (including more than 14,000 air traffic controllers) across the US In addition, ~2.9 million passengers fly from US airports every day
. Airlines and airport authorities are focusing on developing a safer airport infrastructure to provide passengers with a better customer experience, lower operating costs and increased revenue generation for airport stakeholders.
In terms of smart airport market share, Europe is expected to be the second dominant region by 2022. France was estimated to be the third largest country in the European smart airport market. This is due to the high demand for smart airport systems across the country.
Muchos aeropuertos de Francia están tomando iniciativas para implementar una gran cantidad de sistemas inteligentes en los aeropuertos para desarrollar una infraestructura automatizada en todo el sector aeroportuario del país. Por ejemplo, los aeropuertos de París-Charles de Gaulle y París-Orly en Francia ya han instalado puertas electrónicas para brindar un mejor servicio al cliente a los pasajeros. Sin embargo, en 2022, los pasajeros de los aeropuertos franceses se han enfrentado a problemas al salir de varios aeropuertos franceses en todo el país. Esto se debió al desafío de la seguridad cibernética que condujo a un mal funcionamiento a nivel nacional en el sistema automático de puertas de pasaportes de Francia y provocó demoras de hasta una hora en varios aeropuertos, incluidos los aeropuertos de París-Charles de Gaulle y París-Orly. Se espera que estos casos ralenticen el crecimiento del mercado de aeropuertos inteligentes en todo el país.
During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in the global smart airport market. The size of the APAC smart airport market is mainly attributed to the presence of companies serving the demand for smart airport systems.
