This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Airport IT market for the forecast period 2012-2016. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated through sales of IT applications to Airports. It also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top four vendors in the Global Airport IT market. In addition, the report discusses the major drivers that influence the growth of the market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends emerging in the market.
Worldwide, Airports have been spending around 15-20 percent on traditional IT infrastructure to manage the day-to-day operations and reduce costs. However, there has been a gradual shift in IT spending by Airport authorities on new platforms like social media, smartphones sales, and passenger self-services, to increase profit margins and revenues. This has prompted many vendors to understand the gradual shift in the people’s mindsets and come up with innovative technological solutions to address the emerging needs.
Globally, the market is dominated by the 4 large European players Amadeus IT Group, INFORM, SITA S.A. and Ultra Electronics Airport Systems, who are offering various solutions in this space to potential Airport authorities.
Based on the types of solutions offered, the Global Airport IT market has three segments: operational systems, passenger-processing systems, and administrative systems.
Operational systems used to process the daily transactions of an organization accounted for the largest share of 42 percent in 2012 and will continue to grow during the forecast period. Passenger processing systems and administrative systems will be closely following this.
Speaking on this occasion, one of the senior analyst and co-author of this report said,“With so many solutions being offered by various players, what needs to be seen is how these players can keep up with the evolving trends in this market like increasing network virtualization, mobile solutions and cloud computing offerings. Without a proper plan of action the high cost of implementation will act as the biggest challenge for the growth of this market in the coming times.”
