Market Dynamics

AI’s ability to process vast amounts of data and streamline tasks and procedures of airport facilities propels the global artificial intelligence (AI) in the aviation industry. AI has also helped humans to make real-time decisions in a threat-like situation. This aspect of AI will assist pilots to make quick decisions in critical scenarios and save hundreds of lives. AI takes less intervention than humans and performs most of the crucial tasks on its own. So, the dependability of staff on critical responsibilities is decreased, thus reducing the number of high-paying jobs. The implementation of AI is also propelled owing to its cost-effectiveness and timely managed tasks. AI is considered to be the most efficient technology when it comes to operational efficiency and time management. An AI tech will help airport authority with tickets management, flight management, flight delay, weather forecast, customer service, as well as staff management.

In addition, the growing adoption of big data in the aviation industry is likely to boost the demand for AI in the aerospace sector. Big data in the aviation sector is used to simplify the ticket purchasing process, baggage screening, and security checks. Eventually, automating these procedures will help travelers as well as airport staff to seamlessly carry out the security check procedures. However, the lack of AI experts in the aviation industry, system malfunction, and security concerns are few factors that might hamper the AI in aviation market growth. Prominent airlines are increasing their capital investing in AI to boost their revenue stream, which is likely to create numerous growth opportunities for the market in the coming years. Furthermore, an increase in fuel efficiency and growing demand for cloud-based services in the aviation sector are also expected to fuel the market growth during the projected years.

COVID-19 impact analysis on the Artificial Intelligence in Aviation Market

The Covid-19 pandemic forced countries to curb air travel across the world, while most of the international flights were grounded in 2020. Thus, the industry witnessed a huge drop in revenues, which eventually affected the adoption of AI in the aviation sector. However, with the re-opening of lock-downs withdrawal of travel restrictions is again increasing global air travel. Thus, AI in the aviation market is likely to pick-up demand in the coming years.
