Earlier, whole body imaging systems were used at airport checkpoints but owing to technological advancements, various smart technologies have been deployed at airports and has revolutionized the growth of global advanced airport technologies market. These advancements are due to bomb blasts in airplanes due to increasing terrorist activities. Advanced airport technologies are used in several airport systems including digital signage systems, airport communications, fire, airport management systems, car parking systems and others. Advanced airport technologies also include land mobile radio, advanced radar systems, display technologies, common use networks, check-in systems and control software for self service kiosks and passengers. Introduction of advanced jumbo aircrafts have encouraged key market players to come up with advanced technologies to facilitate airport infrastructure systems and to maintain them with ease. GPS-based approach and land control systems are some of the freshly implemented technologies in advanced airport technology. One of the recent developments in advanced airport technologies is the avian radar system which helps in tracking flying birds and display real time activities. Passengers mostly use mobile devices and smartphones for baggage status, flight status and airport directions since majority of airports and airlines are anticipated to offer such services over the forecast period. 90% of airports and 100% of airlines, globally, are investing in business intelligence solutions to furnish advanced software mechanisms across various airport operations.
Increasing security issues, rising mass capacity at airports, illegal immigration and increasing number of airlines are some of the major factors driving the demand for advanced airport technologies. Moreover, privatization is another major factor fuelling the growth of global advanced airport technologies market. Improper execution of airport technologies and smart systems is anticipated to hamper the growth of global advanced airport technology market. Also, rising demand for self-service processes as well as automated services is another major factor bolstering the demand for advanced airport technologies across the globe.
