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 2018.Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.1 percent, the active installed baseis estimated to reach close to 0.4 million units worldwide in 2023. 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-basedIoT connectivity and emerging low-power wide-area (LPWA) wireless technology as well asproprietary radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The airport asset tracking market is served by a number of different types of players, rangingfrom specialists focused exclusively on tracking and management solutions for specificairport assets, to companies that offer a more comprehensive set of solutions for the aviationsector, and more general telematics players that also serve other industries. Berg Insightranks Undagrid (GSEtrack), Quantum Aviation Solutions and Resonate MP4 (XOPS) as theleading vendors of airport asset tracking solutions in terms of installed base. Both Undagridand Quantum have reached more than 10,000 active units respectively. Additional strongplayers include ADVEEZ, Targa Telematics and Pinnacle (iMATS). The latter has notablypartnered with Honeywell which in late 2018 signed a major agreement with Swissport todeploy ground handling services jointly developed with Pinnacle. Targa Telematics hasfurthermore established a partnership with TCR Group which is also collaborating withSensolus for non-motorised GSE tracking. Additional players active in the field of airport assettracking for example include Litum IoT, DigiMobi, EC2E, INFORM, Ctrack (Inseego), Tri-Logical Technologies, Smarter Asset Management (SAM), Katlyn International, SpeedshieldTechnologies and Geotab, all having installed bases of at least 1,000 units each.
