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 over 0.2 million units in 2019.Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4 percent, the active installed baseis estimated to reach close to 0.5 million units worldwide in 2024. 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, Resonate MP4 (XOPS) and ADVEEZas the leading vendors of airport asset tracking solutions in terms of installed base. BothUndagrid and Quantum have installed bases exceeding 10,000 active units each. Additionalmajor players include Targa Telematics and Sensolus, which both partner with the GSE rentalcompany TCR Group, as well as INFORM, Pinnacle (iMATS) and Smarter Asset Management(SAM). Pinnacle notably partners with Honeywell which has signed a major agreement withSwissport to deploy ground handling services jointly developed together with Pinnacle. SAMhas in turn signed a global contract with Menzies Aviation to roll out telematics. Other playersactive in the airport asset tracking space include Litum IoT, EC2E, DigiMobi, Ctrack (Inseego),Tri-Logical, Transpoco, Katlyn International, Speedshield Technologies, SpaceTeam, Geotaband the Ortus Group, all having installed bases of at least 1,000 units each.
