Air traffic control helps in guiding the aircraft pilots from taxi to takeoff, through the air and reach safely to the ground. The aim behind the ATC is to avoid possible collisions of the aircrafts as well as to speed up the air traffic flow smoothly. ATC provides services to all private, military, and commercial aircraft operating within its airspace.

The air traffic control market is driven by factors such as rise in number of airports, need of better airspace management systems, and increase in number of passengers. However, potential risk of cyber threat, and high cost of ATC systems restrict the market growth. Moreover, adoption of the satellite based air-traffic control systems creates lucrative growth opportunities for the market.

The global air traffic control market is segmented based on airspace, application, offering, airport size, sector and region. By airspace, the market is segmented into ARTCC, TRACON, ATCT, and remote tower segments. Further, the applications of ATC include communication, navigation, surveillance, and automation.
