The global airport ground support vehicle market size is expected to experience considerable growth in the forthcoming years. Fortune Business Insights in its upcoming report, titled, “Airport Ground Support Vehicle Market, 2022-2029.”, observes that the increasing focus on airport expansion activities and the rising air traffic are expected to boost the product’s demand during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing adoption of advanced technologies will bode well for the growth of the market. For instance, in February 2021, ThorDrive showcased how the LIDAR sensors are adopted to power their cargo and baggage ground support tractors at the Cincinnati International Airport. Built under its autonomous vehicle program, the sensor can aid in automatically transport baggage and cargo to and from aircraft and facilities at any given time of the day.

The widespread effect of the global pandemic, COVID-19, has been felt across several economies that are facing unprecedented loss. Owing to the lockdown announced by the government agencies, several industries have been on a standstill with limited operational activities. However, a collective effort from the government as well as the industries is likely to bring the economy back on track and aid in the resumption of industrial activities.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War Implication

The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement. There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.
