Technological Advancements and Rising Market Competition Drive the Smart Airport Market

Rising adoption of connected and automated operations by various airports across the globe drives the smart airport market. The automated processes include smart luggage drop, automated check-ins, and smart baggage tracking, among others. Rising air passenger traffic is compelling the airport operators to adopt advanced technologies, such as fingerprint readers, smart cards, and smartphone applications. Smartphone-based applications help passengers to leverage real-time data, including arrival time, gate number, and terminal direction, among others.

Recently, the International Air Transport Association collaborated with Eurocontrol to deploy the Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) system, which employs advanced mobile technologies to enhance the operational efficiency of the airports. However, the rapid spread of coronavirus is reducing air traffic owing to the lockdown and strict regulations imposed by various governments, further hampering the market growth.
