Dublin, Ireland | May 11, 2018–The “Global Airport Baggage Handling Systems Market – Segmented By Airport Capacity And Geography – Growth, Trends, And Forecast (2018 – 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Airport terminal extensions and new terminal development ventures globally, owing to increased air passenger traffic are driving the airport baggage handling systems market.

Recently developed and modernized air terminals have to be supplied with the interlinked baggage conveyor system, which is expected to drive the baggage handling systems market. With terrorist threats around the globe, airplane terminals have stepped up their luggage security. The security procedure is highly time-intensive and influences the general proficiency of baggage handling operations. The increasing number of air passengers coupled with existential security threats is expected to increase the demand for these systems.

Establishment of New Airports and the Expansion of Existing Projects is Expected to Drive the Market

The growth in middle-class population in the developing countries, such as China and India has increased the air passenger traffic, and this trend is expected to continue. To handle the growth in the air traffic, many airports in different parts of the world have been undergoing expansions creating demand for airport baggage handling systems. Airport expansion projects are underway across the world.

All the countries that are part of Gulf Cooperation Council are in the midst of expanding their airports, as the region has few of the world’s busiest airports the growth in the air traffic will necessitate expansion of capacity to provide seamless travel experience. India under its regional connectivity scheme has envisaged developing the underserved and unserved airports to boost domestic air travel. The Heathrow airport in London, the busiest in the European continent is undergoing expansion. The construction of both Greenfield and Brownfield airports is expected to drive the demand for such systems.

In 2009 the average aircraft utilization for the world’s commercial fleet is expected to drop by 4% compared to 2008, according to the latest Commercial Aircraft Fleets and Utilization Forecast from OAG (www.oagaviation.com), the world’s
leading aviation data business.

This is revealed in OAG’s most recent study of the global MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) service demand projection for the next decade, developed in partnership with AeroStrategy. The
utilization forecast, which drives MRO demand, takes into consideration the significant global downsizing in schedules frequency and capacity that have been filed with OAG in the past six months. Global aircraft utilization typically grows at an average of 3.4% per year.

John Weber, Managing Director, OAG Aviation, said: “Scheduled airline frequency and capacity cutbacks made over the past six months will have a significant impact on planned aircraft utilization, with a corresponding short-term downturn in demand for MRO services. We are projecting a worldwide drop of -4% in average aircraft utilization in 2009 compared to 2008, with only modest recovery in 2010. Normal levels of aircraft utilization growth are not expected to return until 2011.”

The regions worst affected this year by a reduction in aircraft utilization will be North America (-7%) and Western Europe (-5%). Least affected will be China, Eastern Europe, Africa, India and Latin America. North American and European operators accounted for 61% of global aircraft utilization in 2008. The forecast trend indicates a gradual shift of this market dominance to other regions. By 2018, Asia is projected to increase its share of the world’s global aircraft utilization by 2.8% to 25.4%, driving up demand for MRO services in that

Over the next 10 years, OAG forecasts that aircraft retirements will peak in 2016 – 1017 at double the average retirement rates of 2009 – 2013. The global installed base of active aircraft will grow 38% by 2018 compared with 2008.

OAG’s Commercial Aircraft Fleet and Utilization Forecast is a 47-page in-depth report tracking 10 year future trends. It is one of six reports produced by OAG on the Commercial Aviation MRO (“CAMRO”) sector covering airframe, engine, components, modifications and line/field maintenance.
