This market research report identifies Glidepath Group, Otis Elevator, Stannah International, and thyssenkrupp as the key vendors in the global airport walkway market. This report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by surface type (moving belt walkway and pallet type moving walkaway), by the inclination angle (horizontal moving walkway and inclined moving walkway), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global airport walkway market

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global airport walkway market will grow at a CAGR of above 13% during the forecast period. The development of energy-efficient walkways is one of the primary drivers for market growth. Airports significantly offer ways to lessen the energy consumption by optimizing the energy use in moving walkways. It has been observed that moving walkways and escalators account for about 4%-5% of the electric energy used in airports. Moreover, moving walkways utilize energy based on the run time and the number of occupants using them at a given time. The improvement in the energy efficiency of walkways in the airports are mainly subjected to the current installation and the existent energy-saving technologies. One of the major manufacturers, thyssenkrupp, developed a high-speed and high-capacity moving walkway utilizing the maglev technology known as ACCEL. This model consists of a belt that starts at normal walking speeds and accelerates up to 7.5 mph. As passengers reach the other end of the moving walkway, the belt lowers the speed back to the normal moving walkway speeds.

In terms of geography, the Americas led the airport walkway market during 2016. However, APAC is foreseen to lead the market during the forecast period and this mainly attributes to the rising demand for air travel, the increasing number of airports, and growing investments toward moving walkways in the region. Countries such as Singapore, India, Hong Kong, China, and Japan will be the major revenue contributors to the market in this region.
