Heightened Security Threats to Fuel the Adoption of Intelligent Systems at Airports

One of the most prominent smart airport market trends is the rising rate of integration of Internet of Things (IoT) at airports to counter the growing security concerns. For example, IoT can efficiently use passenger data based on biometric information and help quick identification and profiling of suspicious persons. This can make airport security staff more proactive and prepared for any potential threats and make traveling safer and more comfortable. In addition to this, smart airports can help efficiently monitor critical airport infrastructure and streamline security and check-in processes for passengers. Thus, IoT can significantly enhance the value of an airport, which will fuel the smart airport market revenue in the foreseeable future. Even more importantly, smart airports can become models for sustainable infrastructure through the use of green technologies and eco-friendly tools such as LED bulbs.

North America to Lead the Pack, Advancements in Cloud Computing to Drive the Market

North America is anticipated to dominate the smart airport market share during the forecast period owing to fast-developing cloud infrastructure, increasing number of smart devices, and a well-established telecommunications system in the region. The market in the region is further propelled by the rapid adoption of smart technologies. In Asia-Pacific, the market is set to surge at a formidable CAGR on account of the flourishing tourism industry in India and China. Swift evolution in the domestic aviation infrastructure in these countries through proactive government policies will further accelerate the smart airport market growth in the coming decade.

Key Industry Developments:

  • September 2019: Siemens signed a contract with five of Spain’s busiest airports – Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Gran Canaria – to completely revamp their security infrastructure. The company will provide intelligent software to these airports for efficient management of passenger luggage in compliance with the new regulations set by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC).
  • April 2019: IBM and Arrow Electronics collaborated to develop and launch a novel IoT solution for airports called the Smart Airport Asset Management Solution.
