Executive summary

An increasing number of companies have introduced asset tracking and managementsolutions which can be used to keep track of airport assets and improve the efficiency ofground handling operations and maintenance routines. Berg Insight estimates that the globalinstalled base of active airport asset tracking systems was less than 0.2 million units in 2017.Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.5 percent, the active installed baseis estimated to reach close to 0.3 million units worldwide in 2022. This includes all airportasset tracking systems deployed for various motorised ground support equipment (GSE),non-motorised equipment (NME) as well as other applicable airport assets including on-roadvehicles used in airport environments. Berg Insight’s definition of an airport asset trackingsolution covers systems based on various technologies including conventional cellular-basedM2M data communications and emerging IoT technologies such as low-power wide-area(LPWA) wireless technology (e.g. LoRa networks) as well as proprietary radio, Wi-Fi andBluetooth.

The airport asset tracking market is served by a number of different types of players, rangingfrom specialists focused exclusively on tracking solutions for specific airport assets, tocompanies that offer a more comprehensive set of solutions for the aviation sector, and moregeneral telematics players that also serve other industries. Berg Insight ranks Undagrid(GSEtrack), Resonate MP4 (XOPS) and Quantum Aviation Solutions as the leading providersof airport asset tracking solutions, all having estimated installed bases of 10,000 active unitsor more. Other notable players include EC2E, ADVEEZ and Pinnacle Telematics (iMATS)which all have installed bases of at least 4,000 units each. Targa Telematics is moreover afast-growing vendor which is expected to increase its market share considerably following astrategic alliance with the new partner TCR Group in 2018. TCR is also collaborating withSensolus for non-motorised GSE tracking. Additional players active in the field of airport assettracking for example include Litum IoT, INFORM, Tri-Logical Technologies, Smart AssetManager (SAM), Geotab, I.D. Systems, Speedshield Technologies and Ctrack (Inseego). Thelatter cooperates with Undagrid for the non-motorised component of its airport solution.
