According to a Global Market Insights report released earlier this year, the aircraft ground handling systems market is set to take off significantly over the next six years. These expectations in real money could equate to a rise from $130 billion (USD) last year to $190 billion by 2025.
The ground handling market can be affected by several factors from the weather to the implementation of smart, integrable solutions to streamline and automate processes. Airports around the world are adopting renewable energy systems and emerging technologies to address efficiency, reduce carbon footprints and strengthen passenger experience â€“ and all these elements are helping to drive growth throughout the sector.
Using technology to harness opportunities for operational efficiency
Todayâ€™s airport ground handling department faces challenges not only within its operational capacity but also in terms of mandatory compliance and cost. As many ground handling teams are third-party providers, data collection, storage and transmission must be a seamlessly protected process and aircraft support, demand calculation, recording and contract management must be accurate and reliable.
Traditional ground handling processes require resource-heavy, time-consuming operation. Simply moving heavy snow from an airport has changed with the introduction of renewables, such as biogas snow-moving equipment which reduces fuel dependency and lowers carbon emissions to boot.
The increasing implementation of the latest technological innovations in the ground handling sector is enabling operational agility, increasing efficiency and helping ground teams to meet critical bottom-line budgeting while maintaining important mandatory compliance. With regulation on the rise in every sector, ground handling teams can benefit from smart, innovative technology solutions. The uptake in adoption of these solutions is playing a significant role in driving growth across the aviation industry as meeting complex regulations such as the recently-introduced (2018) IATA R753 for baggage tracking.
