Overview of the global IT spending market in the aviation industry

Industry research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global IT spending market in the aviation industry will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% by 2020. The rise in passenger volumes and persistent terrorist threats have induced aviation operators to invest heavily in advanced security technologies such as access control, passenger security, and IT security. Additionally, international and domestic aviation legislations enforced by organizations also mandate the installation of airport security measures. The exponential increase in passenger volumes has also increased the need for faster passenger processing at airports that further increases airline operator investments towards implementing advanced IT solutions.

Business intelligence (BI) plays a significant role in the aviation industry and assists in improving processes such as in-airport operations, airport resource management, and passenger flow monitoring. Business intelligence helps airline enterprises gain exposure to various kinds of important business data and also helps the management to access and analyze data from various sources and make important business decisions. To derive powerful actionable insights about passengers and staffs, airports, and airlines have started spending a large portion of their revenue on business intelligence technology as it will help them to augment their revenue generating capacity.
