“Increased air traffic passenger is the prime factor expected to drive the growth of the smart airports market”
The smart airports market is projected to grow from USD 11.31 billion in 2016 to USD 14.87 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.64% from 2016 to 2021. This growth can be mainly attributed to factors such as travelers’ growing needs for real-time information and airports moving towards customer centric approach. However, stringent governmental regulations about the airport may restrain the growth of this market.

“The communication systems segment is anticipated to be fastest growing segment in the smart airports market during forecast period”
Based on technology, the communication systems is anticipated to be fastest-growing segment in the smart airports market during forecast period. With the rising need of real-time information, airports are adopting smart technologies for free-flow of communication. This adoption of technologies includes airside wireless and terminal side wireless solutions, innovations to integrate smartphones for information at every point of a passenger’s journey, and increased usage of social media and near field communication technology.

“Air traffic management is the largest segment”
Based on airside, air traffic management is the largest segment in the smart airports market. Major investments of the airport are in air traffic management due to increased safety regulations laid by ACI, ICAO, EASA among others. Technological developments in air traffic management such as Ground Based Augmentation System in the recent past also lead to up gradation of existing airside equipment. Moreover, the global mandate by Eurocontrol and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to replace the existing air traffic equipment by new equipment is also expected to drive the demand for air traffic management segment during the forecast period.

“North America was the largest market in 2016 and Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for smart airports during the forecast period”
Based on region, North America was largest market for the smart airports in 2016. According to Airport Council International (ACI), the world’s 20 busiest airports are based in this region. North America handles more cargo and passengers as compared to any other region, globally.

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for the smart airports during the forecast period. Upcoming new greenfield airport projects and expansion of existing airports are the key factors driving the market in this region. In addition, smart technologies are expected to be implemented in upcoming airports, owing to its high efficiency. This is further expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period
