This market research report presents a comprehensive analysis of the global air traffic control equipment market by type (navigation, communication, and surveillance) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The key leading vendors in the market are Harris, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Thales.

Overview of the global air traffic control (ATC) equipment market

According to the analysts at Technavio, the global market for air traffic control (ATC) equipment will witness steady growth at a moderate CAGR of close to 5% over the forecast period. With growing air traffic and introduction of new aircraft, the market for ATC equipment will have a positive outlook in the coming years. In 2014, there were a little over 17,300 aircraft in operation, which is likely to be replaced by 31,781 aircraft in the next two decades. For instance, India, which had a passenger traffic of over 61 million in 2013 is likely to expand to 367 million passengers by 2034.  This increase in the number of passengers will translate into a growing demand for aircraft, which in turn will lead to an increase in the airplane traffic in the country. This increase in the air traffic will subsequently lead to the augmented demand for ATC equipment during the next few years.

One of the key trends that will spur the growth prospects for this market over the forecast period is the gradual transition to a satellite-based navigation system. With the advent of new-generation air traffic management (ATM) systems around the world, there has been a significant shift in the ATM systems market. To ensure safety and attain efficient operations, the ground-based augmentation system (GBAS) is being extensively used as it is the most effective solution. GBAS is an alternative solution to ILS and supports the full range of aircraft approach and landing operations. For example, in 2014, Honeywell Aerospace entered a contract with the UK DFID to equip the airport with the SmartPath GBAS, which not only reduces weather-related flight delays but also lowers air traffic noise, improves flight efficiency, maximizes landing safety, and increases airport capacity.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the ATC equipment market

  • Navigation
  • Communication
  • Surveillance

The communication segment is one of the fastest growing segments of the ATC equipment market and is expected to reach nearly USD 2 billion by 2020. Factors such as increasing investments in advanced technology communication equipment in airports and growing air traffic will propel the growth prospects for this market until the end of 2020.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the ATC equipment market

  • Americas
  • APAC

Air traffic control (ATC) equipment are essential for boosting aircraft safety as they help to prevent collisions, provide information and other support for pilots, and organize and expedite the flow of air traffic. The primary task of ensuring safe operations of commercial and private aircraft falls on air traffic controllers, who use several ATC equipment to coordinate the movement of thousands of aircraft, keep them at safe distances from each other, direct pilots during take-off and landing, and direct pilots during bad weather conditions.
