The global market for Smart Airports in terms of annual spending is projected to exceed US$19 billion by 2024, driven by surging passenger traffic, growing investments in airport modernization and increasing investments in disruptive technologies that help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of airport operations. Growing airport competition and the resulting need to elevate passenger experience through connected, intelligent, digitalized, and personalized solutions ranks as one among the key drivers of growth. Future growth in the market will also be driven by escalating interest in automation technologies to ease the burden on airport infrastructure and workforce and rising demand for smart technologies that enable real-time information sharing and collaboration. Europe represents the largest market worldwide, supported by widespread airport automation initiatives. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 9.1% over the analysis period led by factors such as continuous rise in the number of operational airports as a result of the growing affordability of air travel among the growing base of affluent middle class population; and modernization of old airports and growing adoption of advanced airport technologies such as airport information systems and baggage handling systems. The Middle East represents another promising market where a number of airports are pursuing projects that make travel customer service and journey seamless, satisfying, and enjoyable.
