Air Traffic Control (ATC) Equipment Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.
Air traffic control (ATC) equipment are used for air traffic communication, navigation, and surveillance. They enhance the aircraft safety by ensuring safety and efficiency of the aircraft operations, organizing the flow of air traffic, and by preventing aircraft collisions. ATC equipment enable air traffic controllers to coordinate the movement of thousands of aircrafts, direct pilots during take-off & landing, and during bad weather conditions, keep aircrafts at safe distance from each other. As per the data revealed by the World Bank, 2016 witnessed 3.6 billion number of airline passengers worldwide. The rising number of airline passengers is leading to an increase in the number of aircrafts as well, which in turn will lead to higher air traffic. Thus, the air traffic control equipment market offers lucrative opportunities to the market players involved in this market.
Air Traffic Control Equipment Market Determinants
The key factor driving the growth of global air traffic control equipment market is the modernization of air traffic management infrastructure. Moreover, the rising number of aircrafts & airports, and enhanced aircraft movement are also responsible for the growth of the market. On the other hand, high cost of air traffic control equipment, and congestions observed in communication frequencies, act as major hurdles in the growth of the market. However, advances in communication technology and application of satellite- based air traffic control are expected to create huge opportunities for the market growth in the upcoming years.
Air Traffic Control Equipment Market Segment Analysis
The global air traffic control equipment market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, application, and geography. By type, the market is segmented into proximity devices, simulator devices, safety & navigational devices, information system devices and radar devices.
