COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant influence on the aviation sector. The automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast market has taken a beating as deliveries of all aircraft types have plummeted. Weak aircraft orders, a slowing economy, and delayed commercial aircraft deliveries contributed to the market’s downward trend. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), international passenger demand declined 75.6 percent in 2020, while domestic passenger demand plummeted 48.8 percent. Similarly, according to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 2020 report, total air passenger numbers decreased by 60% (2,699 million) from 4499 million in 2019, resulting in a loss of USD 371 billion for airlines.

Driving Factor:

Expansion of Airports to Incite Business Development

The growing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) propels the market growth. An increase in air passenger travelers has resulted in high demand for commercial aircraft, which, in turn, will aid the expansion of the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast market. Moreover, the development of new airports, especially in Asia Pacific, will spur opportunities for the market. Five international airports opened in Vietnam, Israel, China, Turkey, and the U.S. in 2019. Furthermore, the Indian government announced to build 100 airports by 2024 and allocated USD 23.7 billion in the financial year 2020-2021. Thus, increasing spending in the aviation sector across the globe boosts the Automatic Dependent Surveillance broadcast market growth.

Regional Insights:

Rising Urbanization to Augment Growth in North America

In 2020, North America led the Automatic Dependent Surveillance market share worth USD 295.5 million. North America’s supremacy is attributed to the existence of several airports, a thriving aviation sector, and the greatest number of air travelers. Furthermore, from January 1, 2020, all aircraft flying in the United States must be outfitted with the aircraft surveillance system, according to the FAA.

In Asia Pacific, with expanding air traffic, passenger aircraft deliveries, and the presence of several airports, the market will increase at the fastest rate. According to IATA, China will overtake the U.S. as the world’s largest aviation passenger market by 2024. China constructs eight airports every year. In addition, fast growth of the aviation industry and rising urbanization in China, India, South Korea, and other Asian countries is expected to propel market progress.

Competitive Landscape:

Development of Innovative Surveillance Systems by Major Companies to Consolidate Business

Thales Group, Garmin Ltd, Honeywell International Inc., Collins Aerospace, and others are actively developing automatic aircraft monitoring systems, which, in turn, shall boost competition in the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast market. Aireon and Avinor Air Navigation Services entered into an agreement in February 2021 to install space-based ADS-B to monitor helicopter activities in the Bodo Oceanic Flight Information Region.

Key Development:

  • February 2020: Aireon forged a strong ten-year agreement with EUROCONTROL to offer space-based automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast data. It will facilitate EUROCONTROL to offer enhanced predictability in the European air traffic management network.
