The global smart airport market reached a value of US$ 27.3 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 51.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.2% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Smart airport solutions rely on connected and automated technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), global positioning system (GPS), and sensors, to provide real-time data analytics and self-service capabilities to passengers. They enable timely access of information via smart devices, which assists in accurate decision-making, planning, and performing operations and other tasks digitally. As they also offer innovative services, such as automated security gates, unmanned immigration systems, real-time CCTV security surveillance, and radio frequency identification/near field communication (RFID/NFC) based baggage tracking, their demand is escalating across the globe.
Smart Airport Market Trends:
Increasing air traffic around the world due to the growing passenger and business travel is encouraging airport enterprises to become more adaptive, entrepreneurial, and proactive in accordance with changing aviation dynamics and customer demands. This represents one of the major drivers positively influencing the demand for smart airport solutions to cater to an improved passenger experience. These solutions include facial recognition at checkpoints, automated immigration processes, digital wayfinding, health monitoring systems, luggage scanning and weighing, vehicle locations, equipment monitoring, and crew rostering. These applications provide robots for remote maintenance, system-generated alerts and notifications, and on-demand self-service capabilities to passengers. Moreover, the integration of smart airports with artificial intelligence (AI) promotes waste, water, emission, and energy management, which helps airports in achieving certification of carbon neutrality. In addition, the emerging trends of multi-nodal transportation, along with airport urbanism, are anticipated to strengthen the growth of the market.
