Global Airport Information Systems Market: Segmental Analysis
The segmental analysis of the market is conducted on the basis of systems, type, and platform and region.
By systems, the market has been segmented into airport operation control centre (AOCC) and departure control system (DCS). The AOCC segment is further sub-segment into cargo handling, resource management, flight dispatch and others. The DCS segment is further sub-segmented into flight information display system, passenger check-in & boarding, and weather monitoring system. In 2017, the AOCC segment was valued at USD 2,467.1 M and is expected to witness an impressive growth in 2019 and beyond. Increased efforts to modernize airports is supporting the adoption of AOCC. By type, the market has been segmented into passenger system and non-passenger system. In terms of revenue, close to two-third share of the market was represented by the passenger system segment in 2017. In addition, the segment is poised to grow at 7.63% CAGR during the forecast period.
This is primarily owing to the growing application of passenger system in airport check-in process. Integration of these systems allow a faster check-in process and a smoother boarding process. By platform, the market has been segmented into non-aeronautical systems and aeronautical systems. The aeronautical systems segment commanded the largest market share in 2017 and is projected to exhibit 7.75% CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The segment is likely to retain its top position over 2023. Rapid adoption of information systems in airports is driving the growth of the segment.
Global Airport Information Systems Market: Regional Outlook
On the basis of region, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). North America holds significant market potential for airport information systems. North America currently holds a considerable share of the global airport information systems market. 2018 was a high-growth year for the U.S aviation sector, with a healthy uptick in passenger volume.
