Market Insights

“Growing need for smart airport accelerating IoT in airports”

The rapid increment in the air travel passengers and growing number of air traffic has demanded the technology such as the internet of things (IoT) which will have a significant impact on streamlining the operations in airports. With millions of connected devices communicating with each other with the launch of 5G technologies in near future, the aviation industry expecting to leverage growing IoT trends and achieve endless benefits such as optimized fleet operations, fuel savings, enhanced safety and security standards, and better MRO shifts.

The IoT technology revolutionizes modern-day flying, radically improvising fleet maintenance, engine performance, and safety. With enhanced MRO scheduling, airlines are experiencing cost-saving in their annual budget. Moreover, there is high demand for transforming some of the busy airports of the world into smart airports to reduce the burden of over-trafficking and make the passenger experience more comfortable. This has largely influenced the airliners and airport authorities to upgrade their current technology with IoT.

However, IoT is still in a nascent phase and the market players are currently innovating complex systems used in airlines and airports. Furthermore, there is a lack of comparable technological capability across the world which will determine the extent to which IoT will grow in the near future. This will also reduce the growth rate in those technologically less advanced regions of the world.
