Commercial Airport Baggage Handling Systems Market

Commercial Airport Baggage Handling Systems Market size was estimated at USD 25.05 billion by 2030 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.90% by 2022-2030

Market Research Future (MRFR) predicts that the commercial airport baggage handling systems market is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period (2017-2023). The airport terminal expansions coupled with new airport construction projects across the globe drive the growth of the global market. For instance, nations like China, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are presently undergoing multiple large airport construction projects. The global market is also experiencing a surge in demand owing to increasing airline passengers, airline operators, and the airport as an independent unit. The requirement of a Commercial Airport Baggage Handling Systems Market Trends is mainly driven by the need for efficient systems, which manage the movement of airline baggage in and out of the check-in and checkout points at the airports. The BHS is playing a stellar role in the baggage handling procedure owing to constant developments of new technologies and improving systems.

However, there is a flip side to the market growth, namely mismanagement of the system that leads to luggage to go astray. This factor potentially impedes the ongoing market surge even during the forecast period. But the driving factors cannot be sidelined, such as increasing use of technology for ease of use, such as radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The air transport industry is able to save lot of money and dramatically reduce mishandled baggage with the use of RFID technology. Apart from this, market players are continuously coming up with diverse technologies with features such as remote-controlled operation, which can be integrated with smart handheld devices or smart phones. These technological trends massively work in favor of the market globally.

Primary Drivers and Restraints

The commercial airports baggage handling systems market has been on a sharp upward trajectory   in recent years, given the pressing need for better operational efficiency at airports worldwide. The baggage handling system/BHS is one of the most crucial parts of logistics that facilities efficient and faster delivery of goods or baggage, which remains a key reason for its high demand at airports. The dramatic boom in commercial aviation over the years owing to the surge in international trade, favorable government policies and mandates, increased tourism level and growing prominence of FDI/foreign direct investments in aviation has helped the global market in generating massive revenues.

The considerable market earnings are also the result of the rising air passenger traffic, mounting number of new airports with advanced management and operational technologies, and the rise in upgradation of the existing airports. A sophisticated BHS technology performs luggage sorting, tagging and screening, which helps reduce the chances of misplacement and theft. High accuracy rate of the baggage handling system and the lower error scope are propelling the demand rate across airports and inducing significant market growth.

Airports are constantly collaborating with airlines to enhance the passenger baggage handling process, while new technologies and initiatives are emerging as parts of the modernization process. Given the high demand from various dimensions, many of the top players are strategizing for long term market sustainability via new product launches, offering customized solutions, as well as MAs. From this, it can be inferred that a number of green field and brownfield airport constructions could present attractive opportunities to the market participants

Regional Insight

The main markets for commercial airport baggage handling systems worldwide include Europe, Asia Pacific or APAC, the Middle East and Africa or MEA and North America.

North America has one of the leading aviation industries across the world, with the presence of a high number of airports with advanced technologies as well as massive volume of air traffic. The air passenger traffic in the region is estimated to surge an annual rate of 2.9% in the coming 20 years. The expected air traffic surge combined with the high number of airport construction activities are deemed to work in favor of the commercial airport baggage handling system market in North America. The considerable increase in the use of IoT/internet of things across the aviation industry has contributed immensely to the market growth in the region.

The APAC market seems to be performing well owing to the fast growth in air travel in emerging nations like India, China, Thailand and Japan. Sensing the vast opportunities in the market, players realize that a better BHS infrastructure is needed to accommodate the expanding air traffic that has no negative impact on the operational efficiency. This is why many of these companies are focusing on installing efficient and advanced BHS at airports, leading to higher competition between regional as well as a surge in technological innovations.
