The global air traffic management market was valued at $ 8.41 billion in 2021 and is foreseen to reach $ 11.50 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2026.
Air traffic management (ATM) is considered to cover all activities related to ensuring a safe and disciplined flow of air traffic without any errors. The most important objective of this management is to reduce the problem of congestion at airports. Air Traffic Control (ATC), Air Traffic Flow Management (AT n FM), and Airspace Management are among the crucial services of ATM. This type of air traffic management is possible by combining important services such as air traffic control and aeronautical information management. It is dynamic management that guarantees the safety of the airspace with adequate navigation services. Moreover, it regulates the flow of day-to-day traffic. The main objective of air traffic control is to maintain a sufficient difference between aircraft to avoid collisions on the ground by suggesting the right direction during a flight. The management of air traffic flows and capacities mainly regulates the flow of aircraft in the most efficient way possible to avoid congestion.
Air traffic management (ATM) involves various systems that assist an aircraft starting from its departure to its landing at its destination, including the transit stage.
COVID-19 impact on Air Traffic Management Market:
The global coronavirus lockdown situation is expected to delay existing and planned projects by six months, as communities and government businesses retreat following the shutdown of manufacturing and production. Their impact can be directly visible on raw materials and logistics and the realization of the project. Governments are currently expected to shift the focus from aviation procurement to disease control and infection protection equipment and may divert the budget allocated for various ATM equipment to such equipment or use funds from it. Emergency, which can reduce the volume of future acquisitions or delay aeronautical infrastructure construction projects, could have short-term effects on players' revenues.
• January 2019 - The National Apprenticeship Training Scheme (NATS), the UK's air traffic management service provider, has started testing an AI-powered digital tower at Heathrow to minimize flight delay issues. NATS has invested over £ 2.5million to understand how technology can support air traffic operations to gain a competitive advantage.
• May 2018: Harris Corporation, based in Florida, USA, won a $ 141 million contract with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to develop a futuristic telecommunications infrastructure. This will improve network operation, aviation safety and improve the performance of air traffic management in India.
Air Traffic Management Market Growth and Trends:
The construction of new airports and the expansion of existing airports have generated demand for air traffic management equipment worldwide. Several airports are also replacing outdated IT equipment with new, state-of-the-art equipment to improve the efficiency of air traffic management operations. Over the years, hardware costs have decreased and reliability has increased mainly due to technological advances. The construction of new ATC towers is supposed to increase the need for more ATC equipment in the coming years. For instance, during November 2019, the Serbian and Montenegrin Air Traffic Services published about their initiative to construct a new air traffic control tower at Serbian Konstantin Veliki Airport in Nis in 2021. It is also expected that the construction of a new ATC tower at Kolkata airport, India, will be completed before the end of 2020. However, the procurement and installation of communication, surveillance and navigation equipment is supposed to be completed in 2021. Such developments will drive growth in this industry during the forecast period.
Air Traffic Management Market Drivers and Limitations:
Growth in passenger traffic attracts investment in the market as airports increase their capacity to serve passengers. Some of the important factors affecting the growth of the air traffic management market include the increase in the number of airports, the need for better airspace management systems, and the rise in the number of passengers. In addition, the potential risk of cyber threat, high cost of ATC systems, and adoption of satellite air traffic control systems are also having a significant impact on the market. Each of these factors is estimated to have definite impact on the global air traffic management market during the forecast period (2021-2026). Airports Council International (ACI) works for various airport authorities around the world due to the increasing demand for air travel and the importance of investments in airport infrastructure.
The air traffic management and advisory system involve a huge amount of material costs, such as screens, monitors, communication systems, radars, navigation, surveillance systems and others. These systems often comprise of advanced technology and complex engineering for implementing new developments. Various components and machines are used to establish a large infrastructure for efficient systems. This factor makes the system a costly expense to establish the infrastructure for the airport facilities.
