Global Airport Baggage Handling System Market to Reach US$ 7.6 Billion by 2028, Induced by New Standards Introduced by IATA

September 12, 2019 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Airport Baggage Handling System Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, the global airport baggage handling system market size reached US$ 3.8 Billion in 2022. Baggage handling refers to the procedure of transporting passenger luggage from the check-in counter at departure, onto the cargo hold of a plane, and ultimately to a collection point at the arrival. A baggage handling system (BHS) is designed to check weights of the bags, screen suitcases for security, balance loads, count bags, automatically read bag information and carry the luggage through the conveyor belt system. BHS consists of various automated technologies to move the bags from one end to another, including automatic scanners to scan the labels; conveyors equipped with sorting machines and junctions to route bags to the gate; and unmanned carts, called destination-coded vehicles (DCVs), which can load and unload luggage without stopping.

Global Airport Baggage Handling System Market Trends:

In recent years, an increase in the number of passengers has led to the escalating demand for improved baggage handling processes and systems at airports. In 2019, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) introduced new baggage handling standards to help in minimizing the potential for luggage mishandling. It has implemented the global deployment of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags for tracking baggage and introduced baggage messaging standards to track passengers’ baggage in real-time across crucial points in the journey. Besides this, numerous airports are currently being renovated and their baggage handling capacity is being increased to accommodate the overflow of passengers. For instance, in May 2019, the Netherlands-based logistics automation company, Vanderlande, was awarded the contract to upgrade the BHS at Brussels Airport. The improvements will enable the airport to handle the projected growth in footfall within the next 25 years. The company will replace the existing conventional BHS with its TUBTRAX technology, which offers a combination of new hold baggage screening (HBS) machines that comply with the current EU Standard 3 regulations. Attributing to the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.8% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ 7.6 Billion by 2028.
