Smart Airports Market to Grow Exponentially due to Dramatic Increase in Airline Passengers

passenger-traffic-122999__180The rising demand for automated and self-service processes is currently the major factor bolstering the demand for smart airports globally. During the recent years, there has been high growth in the number of self-service solutions at the airports including bag recovery, check-in, and flight rebooking. The market’s growth is also gaining traction with an increased level of passenger traffic and growing level of IT spending across airports. Rising IT spending on airports can be construed as increasing investment by companies to lower their operating expenditure (OPEX) and to deploy modern technologies such as wireless connectivity, automated solutions, and check-in kiosks. However, the high initial investment required for high connectivity and robust infrastructure is among the key factors restraining the market’s growth during the forecast period.
