According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Smart Airport Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global smart airport market witnessed strong growth during 2015-2020. A smart airport employs connected technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT)-based devices, sensors, and global positioning system (GPS), for enhancing operational efficiency and passenger convenience. Some commonly used smart airport solutions include automated security gates, facial recognition for passenger identification at gates and checkpoints, automated luggage weighing and scanning, and real-time CCTV security surveillance. These solutions provide real-time data analytics, enable airlines to perform operations and other tasks digitally, optimize passenger flows and support the activities of the airport staff. In recent years, smart airports have been constructed in various countries as they offer self-service capabilities to passengers and improve their overall experience.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Smart Airport Market Trends:
The rising air traffic due to the growing leisure and business travel activities represents the primary factor driving the global market. Furthermore, airlines are increasingly shifting toward advanced solutions to improve passenger experience and keep up with the changing aviation dynamics and customer demands. This is another factor contributing to the market growth. Additionally, the recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak is accelerating the adoption rates of smart airport solutions, such as self-service check-in kiosks, biometric kiosks, and touchless solutions. These solutions assist in limiting physical contact, mitigating health risks, avoiding congestion, and effectively managing passenger and luggage processing systems. Besides this, the increasing investments in the construction of greenfield airports, along with the expansion and modernization of existing facilities, are further escalating the demand for smart airport solutions. Other factors, including the emerging trend of airport urbanism and multimodal transportation, technological advancements and favorable government initiatives, are also creating a favorable market outlook. On account of these factors, IMARC Group expects the market to expand at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
