According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Ground Support Vehicles Market is growing at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. At the airport, various operations between aircraft flights usually involve the use of ground support vehicles. At airports, tractors are used to tow aircraft. The on-boarding and off-boarding of passengers from aircraft is performed by using passenger stairs. The market is driven by the rising demand for such systems to enhance airports' operating efficiency as a result of a rise in cargo and passenger traffic. The market will grow as a result of the aviation industry's rapid expansion, rising airport infrastructure investments, and increasing demand for eco-friendly airport ground support vehicles.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) report 2020, nearly 1.8 billion passengers flew in 2020 which showed a decline of 60.2% compared to 4.5 billion flew in 2019.



Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Increasing Focus on Airport Expansion to Promote Growth

The outbreak enabled few airlines to operate globally, but in the upcoming years, there will be a significant increase in the number of flyers. For instance, a large number of nations are making investments in airlines to ensure the aviation sector's growth. In addition, the Economic Times analysis predicts that India will have approximately 855 million air travellers by the year 2030. The increasing number of airline passengers is expected to drive airport authorities to upgrade passenger facilities and enhance the travel experience. Therefore, the growing emphasis on airport expansion is estimated to promote the growth of the airport ground support vehicle market globally in the following decades.

Restraint:

High Initial Investment

The deployment of ground support equipment requires a significant investment of capital. For instance, the first automated aircraft cleaning machine in India cost $0.77 million and was purchased by Air India SATS Airport Services in May 2017. Nordic Dino II, an automated system developed specifically for the purpose, would operate the automated aircraft exterior cleaning system that would be installed at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI), New Delhi. Additionally, it would be challenging for competitors with tight margins and limited working capital, it has a high maintenance cost, which is predicted to restrain the expansion of the global market for ground support vehicles.

Opportunity:

Facility Expansion by Prominent Companies to Amplify Their Market Positions

The development of significant companies that are focusing on expanding their facilities to meet the rising demand from the aviation industry has contributed to the consolidation of the global market for airport ground support vehicles. Additionally, other prominent players are striving to maintain their position by implementing strategies including collaboration, partnership, merger and acquisition that are beneficial for the market's expansion.

Threat:

High maintenance cost and expensive

Electric ground support vehicles are expensive at launch due to their low production volume. Furthermore, the batteries in these vehicles must be replaced every five to eight years. Therefore, the market for electric ground support vehicles is projected to be constrained during the forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact:

Lockdowns and partial industrial closures during the COVID-19 outbreak had a negative influence on manufacturing facilities all around the world. Companies have taken drastic measures, including shutting down operations, to protect workers. As a result of the delays in production and delivery caused by the sudden implementation of lockdowns, the market witnessed a proportional decline in income for suppliers of raw materials, technology, and products.

The tugs and tractors segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The development and integration of low-emission and electric tugs and tractors are being prompted by the increasing demand for greener airports. The conventional fuel-powered tractors and tugs are being replaced by new battery-powered versions. During the projection period, it is anticipated that this replacement will fuel the segment's expansion.

The commercial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Owing to the increasing demand for UGVs in urban search and rescue, firefighting, nuclear plant operations, and agricultural spraying and harvesting applications, the commercial segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Furthermore, the segment is expected to benefit from the rising trend in commercial UGV development.

Region with largest share:

Several airports in Asia-Pacific are operating above capacity. As a result, delays caused by congestion are rising at most Asian hubs. Several airports in the Asia-Pacific region are making substantial investments to improve their airport infrastructure to keep pace with the increasing demand for air travel. The expansion of airports in prominent cities with high passenger traffic has offered manufacturers a chance to showcase and promote their advanced ground support vehicles.

Region with highest CAGR:

During the projection period, the adoption of advanced airport ground support vehicles is estimated to increase, driven by the Europe region market experiencing significant growth and the increasing government focus on developing modern, smart airports in nations including Germany, France, and Spain.
