Summary Methodology

Commercial Airport Baggage Handling Systems Market size is projected to grow rapidly from 2018 to 2024 due to increasing commercial aviation production coupled with rising international trade and proliferating tourism at a global level. For instance, in 2017, Airbus accounted for over 700 aircrafts deliveries with an additional net orders of 1,109 aircrafts.

Moreover, stringent government policies are impacting the aviation sector significantly, thereby providing a positive outlook for the industry proliferation. For instance, according to the Airports Council International, total time taken in departure formalities completion should account for 60 minutes for departing international travelers. 60 minutes should be counted from the arrival of the passenger at the first processing point to the flight departure.

Additionally, in June 2018, International Air Transport Association (IATA) resolution 753 came into effect. According to its policy, member airlines of IATA are enforced to check every item of luggage at four fixed points including at check-in, at the time of aircraft loading, during baggage transfers between airplane and on arrival as baggage returned to passengers, positively influencing the market expansion till 2024.

Advanced technologies including Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) are extensively utilized for improving efficiency of airport baggage handling system. For instance, according to Airport Council International, airport staff are required to manage and coordinate the appropriate execution of RFID detection infrastructure for baggage handling system. However, cost associated with baggage handling system maintenance coupled with airport operator establishment with necessary skills are some of the major factors hindering commercial airport baggage handling systems market growth.

Increasing competition among leading commercial aviation players coupled with rising air passenger traffic are among the key factors supporting the commercial airport baggage handling systems market proliferation till 2024. Additionally, establishment of new international airports coupled with enhanced operational procedures and improved management and technologies are providing significant prospects for market expansion over the study time frame.

Baggage handling system includes identification services, conveyors, destination-coded vehicles, sorting devices, and screening devices. Smart designed baggage handling system coupled with enhanced passenger convenience are fueling the commercial airport baggage handling systems market size. Additionally, this system reduces the aircraft turnaround time, that plays considerable role in supporting the commercial airport baggage handling systems market expansion.

The modernization of existing airports along with the incorporation of technologies including RFID tags for lowering the rate of error in baggage handling process are strengthening the market size over the projected timeframe. Commercial airports are entering into strategic partnerships with the airlines to remove obstacles for providing error free baggage handling systems, contributing significantly towards the market penetration till 2024.

Based on identification technology, the commercial airport baggage handling systems market place is characterized into radio frequency identification (RFID) and barcode. RFID technology helps in enhancing passenger services such as saving costs, automatic scanning coupled real-time luggage tracking and effective baggage handling system. Additionally, capability of RFID technology to read multiple bag tags simultaneously is supporting the commercial airport baggage handling systems market proliferation over the study timeframe. For instance, According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), adoption of radio frequency identification technology across the globe is estimated to save nearly USD 3 billion during the next seven years by enhancing operation and baggage management.

Based on services, the commercial airport baggage handling systems market is distinguished into assisted type baggage check in and self-service baggage check in. Increased use of mobile devices coupled with digitalization at commercial airports is positively influencing the demand of self-service baggage check in segment. Self-service baggage check in provides customers leverage to track and manage their own baggage, positively influencing the industry share over the projected timeframe.

Based on type, the commercial airport baggage handling systems market is divided into destination-coded vehicles and conveyors. Destination-coded-vehicles are connected to the scanners and linear induction motors that assists in increasing the airport’s efficiency and enhances the ability of airports to attract new airlines. DCV also accelerates the efficiency of baggage handling process on account of major factors including buffer overflows prevention, reduction in transportation costs and baggage travel time.

North America is expected to experience remarkable growth in the global commercial airport baggage handling systems market place owing to higher concentration of international passengers for business purposes and intra-continental transit. Additionally, adoption of international standards coupled with enhancing safety and usage of automated conveyors and machinery for baggage handling systems is influencing the market growth till 2024. Asia-Pacific commercial airport baggage handling systems market share is growing considerably owing to rapidly improving air transportation and increasing western countries connectivity from emerging countries including China, Japan, and India over the study time frame.

Major industry players in the airport baggage handling systems market place include Logplan, BCS Group, Daifuku Co., Ltd., Fives, G&S Airport Conveyor, Pteris Global Limited, Siemens AG, BEUMER Group, and Vanderlande Industries B.V. Industry players are focusing on installing baggage handling system on international and domestic airports for increasing their market share. For instance, in November 2018, Daifuku Co., Ltd. announced to install smart designed handling system (BHS) at New Chitose Airport in Japan. This system will ensure passenger convenience and baggage safety while complying to international standards.
