Glass walled aerobridges will exhibit promising growth trends

Most of the traditional jet bridges are made of steel wall structures however modern products feature glass walls owing to their aesthetic appeal. Glass walled structures are gaining huge popularity as they eliminate the possibility of Claustrophobia and offer enjoyable viewing experience for the passengers.
 

Glass walled jet bridges were banned in North America earlier, as they violated the federal fire safety laws. Recently, the National Fire Protection Association made changes in the laws, thereby paving way for airports to install glass walled structures. The acceptance of glass walled jet bridges will grow rapidly in North America in upcoming years.
 

Huge potential for the electromechanical elevation system in future

Electromechanical elevation system will grow at rapid pace in the aerobridge market due to integration of latest technological advancements to improve the operational capabilities of jet bridges. This system is environmentally friendly as it doesn’t generate pollution owing to oil leakages which is often the case for hydraulic systems.
 

Movable aerobridges are likely to dominate the market in future

Movable jet bridges are widely preferred by many airports as they offer great deal of operational flexibility & excellence. This segment will capture around four-fifth of market share through 2025.
 

Two tunnel sections will capture majority of market share in future

Two tunnel products offer satisfactory reach however they cannot be retracted similar to its three tunnel counterparts. The former type is suitable for passenger transportation in large gauge aircrafts. This segment will clutch significant share in upcoming years.
 

Apron drive aerobridges will attract largest demand in future

Apron drive jet bridges are used on large scale in most of the airports due to their versatility. These can serve a wide range of aircrafts & parking positions and can swing up to 180 degrees across the bay and also extend, raise or lower depending on the aircraft size.

Asia Pacific shows promising future trends in jet bridge industry on account of major airport development projects. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in terms of international passenger traffic growth. Countries such as China and India are planning to build new airports in upcoming years in order to cater to the needs of rising number of passengers. India is planning to build around 100 new airports in the next 10 to 15 years with an investment around USD 60 billion.
 

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has stated that 216 new airports will be built by 2035. This will help to meet the growing air travel demand as number of travelers in China may grow over 700 million by 2020. The regional governments in Asia Pacific region are formulating policies to attract investments for the airport construction projects. These aforementioned trends are expected to catapult the product sales between 2019 to 2025.
 

High degree of consolidation can be seen in the market

The key manufacturers in the aerobridge market are Thyssenkrupp, ADELTE – The Boarding Company, CIMC-TianDa, ShinMaywa Industries, Ltd., JBT Corporation, PT Bukaka Teknik Utama Tbk, FMT Sweden AB, Airport Equipment, Vataple Machinery (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. and Muhibbah Airline Support Industries Sdn Bhd (MASI). These aerobridge manufacturers are trying to gain competitive advantage with product innovation, strategic partnerships & collaborations and diversifying sales & distribution network.
 

Many companies are trying to improve the product efficiency with integration of cutting edge technology. For instance, Airport Equipment developed Intellidock system, an automatic docking system enabling fast boarding and disembarking of passengers.
 

In this system, when a button is pressed, sensor scans the aircraft door and drives the passenger boarding bridge into desired position automatically and then it gets locked. This system eliminates the risk of operator error in a significant manner.
