With the advent of advanced technology, the demand for cloud-based services and management of data and electronic information with the help of IT systems has become a necessity in the aviation industry. As per the report that has been published by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global airport IT systems market is registered to expand steadily at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period of 2018-2023
Market drivers and Restraints
Increasing reliance on cloud-based services to collect6 and process large volumes of electronic information within the airport in order to ensure efficient airport operations is one of the major factors that are driving the growth of the global airport IT systems market. The dependency of passengers on smartphone-enabled solutions and e-services owing to the need for real-time information exchange and collaboration is fueling the expansion of the global airport IT systems market.
The multiple benefits of airport IT systems that ensure maximum productivity with improved safety protocols, reduced operational and capital costs, improved customer experience with reduction in boarding time and others are impacting positively on the growth of the global airport IT systems market. The availability of expensive but efficient upgrades and data sharing regulations are some other factors influencing the growth of the global airport IT systems market during the forecast period
However, stringent regulatory framework imposed by government is likely to act as a restraint on the growth of the global airport IT systems market during the forecast period.
