This market research study presents a detailed segmentation of the global airport stands equipment market by type (stand entry guidance system, electrical ground power unit, preconditioned air unit, and air bridge) and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The key vendors in the market are John Bean Technologies, Mallaghan, ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems, and TUG Manufacturing.

Outlook of the airport stands equipment market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global airport stands equipment market will grow at a CAGR of more than 6% over the forecast period. Factors such as exponential growth in the tourism industry in the 2011-2015 period are expected to drive this market in the coming years. The number of international tourists has grown significantly and estimated that nearly 810 million tourists visited the European and American countries, and 550 million tourists visited Asian and Middle Eastern countries in 2015. This number is expected to rise by almost 30% over the forecast period. Therefore, governments around the world have made substantial investments to their transportation networks to accommodate this high volume of visitors. Moreover, growth in international tourism has led to expansion and construction of new and existing airports, and this will spur the growth of the airport stands equipment market in the coming years.

In this industry research report, the analysts have estimated factors such as increasing focus on non-aviation revenue to propel this market’s growth during the predicted period. Non-aviation revenues are often sources of future expansion projects of airports. Duty-free shops mostly sell high-end, luxury goods such as cosmetics, jewelry, confectionary items, and alcohol. The profits accrued from the sale of these duty-free products reduce the airport’s reliance on aeronautical revenues. Moreover, such retail outlets diversify the tax base of the airport, and this income is utilized for fulfilling the demand for the support equipment required at the airports like preconditioned air units and electrical ground power supply systems.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the airport stands equipment market

  • Stand entry guidance system
  • Electrical ground power unit
  • Preconditioned air unit
  • Air bridge

The air bridges segment dominated the market and accounted for a market share of close to 38% in 2015. Though this segment was the largest, its market share is expected to decrease due to the increasing demand for pre-conditioned air units and electrical ground power units. Moreover, the rising number of passengers is leading to an increased number of airlines being run by operators, which in turn, raises the demand for airport stands equipment like preconditioned air units and air bridges in the coming years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the airport stands equipment market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

During 2015, APAC dominated the market and accounted for nearly 43% of the market share. Factors such as the rapid development and expansion of airports, particularly in countries like India and China, is expected to propel the growth prospects of the airport stands equipment market in APAC by the end of 2020.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global airport stands equipment market is highly fragmented and competitive owing to the presence of well-diversified international and regional vendors. The increasing presence of international vendors is hindering the growth of small domestic players as they are unable to match the standards of the global players in terms of quality and cost effectiveness.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • John Bean Technologies
  • Mallaghan
  • ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems
