Air traffic management (ATM) includes navigation, surveillance, communication, and automation and simulation systems. It assists in directing aircraft to land at specific places, maintaining optimal height while traveling, and ensuring passenger safety. It also helps in improving safety and predictability, making collaborative decisions, offering real-time accuracy, and consolidating different systems. At present, several manufacturers are integrating the latest technologies, such as unmanned traffic management, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (IA), light data processing system (FDBS), with existing ATM solutions.

Air Traffic Management Market Trends:
Air transport represents one of the fastest and safest modes of traveling across the globe. This, in confluence with the economic growth and a rapid increase in the global population, represents one of the key factors positively influencing the need for ATM. Moreover, there is a rise in passenger traffic on account of decreasing flight fares, which has led to an increase in the demand for better airspace management. As a result, government authorities of numerous countries are focusing on the modernization of ATM infrastructure and building additional airport facilities. This, along with the potential risk of cyber threats and the growing adoption of the satellite-based air-traffic control (ATC) systems, is driving the market. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and the imposition of lockdown, as well as travel restrictions on domestic and international flights adversely impacted the aviation sector. This, in turn, reduced sales of ATM solutions until the upliftment of travel restrictions were announced. The rising use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in ATM systems, along with the increasing strategic partnerships and collaborations among leading market players to retain their position, is projected to fuel the market growth.
