Commercial Airport Lighting Market Overview
The global commercial airport lighting market is likely to garner a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period (2018-2023), Market Research Future (MRFR) unveils in a detailed report. Airport lighting systems provide improved visual guidance by radiating light beams, which help aircraft to take-off and land securely. It facilitates night flying, besides enhancing the appearance of the airport.
Commercial Airport Lighting Market Potential and Pitfalls
The global commercial airport lighting market has witnessed a tectonic surge over the past few years, mainly due to the rapid increase in air passenger traffic. The increasing demand for aircraft and passenger safety is augmenting the growth of the market across the globe. For instance, LED airport lighting systems were adopted in 2016 by airports of Hanover and Munich. The adoption was aimed towards reducing the annual maintenance and costs and electricity consumption. Airports across the world are highly investing in upgradation and modernization, which is likely to encourage the growth of the market in the foreseeable future.
Government authorities across countries are highly supporting the development of new airports to control the ever-increasing traffic. Government authorities, along with the airport officials, are focusing on the expansion of the infrastructure of the existing airports. They are also aiming towards redeveloping the infrastructure by installing smart technologies, which is supporting the growth of the market globally.
Airports across the world are highly adopting smart airfield lighting monitoring systems to improve the efficiency of air traffic control. These lighting monitoring systems integrate airfield surveillance, airfield lighting, and aircraft tracking systems to guide aircraft through quickest and safest paths, which helps to achieve optimum aircraft routing. The emergence of smart airfield lighting monitoring systems is thus identified as a key trend to trigger the demand for commercial airport lighting in the long run. On the contrary, the high cost of LEDs is likely to restrict the growth of the market to a certain extent.
Global Commercial Airport Lighting Market: Segmental Analysis
The commercial airport lighting market is segmented on the basis of technology and application.
By technology, the commercial airport lighting market is segmented into LED and non-LED. Among these, the LED technology acquired the largest market share in 2018. The segment is expected to retain its growth due to the surging requirement for energy conservation, coupled with lower maintenance cost.
By application, the commercial airport lighting market is segmented into terminal lighting, airside lighting, and landside lighting. Among these, the airside segment is likely to gain prominence in the foreseeable future.
