Project Insight: Global Airport Construction Projects

Summary

Airports Council International (ACI) observed growth of 7.5% in air passenger transport in 2017, to reach 8.3 billion passengers. The US and China account for 34.5% of global passenger traffic. North America leads, with domestic passenger traffic taking 35% of global traffic, while Europe has the highest proportion of international traffic with 47%. By 2040, emerging economies are expected to account for 60.2% of passenger traffic, at 12.6 billion, against the 39.8% of advanced economies at 8.3 billion.

Airport and air travel growth is expected to follow growth in global regional economies, with Asia-Pacific and the Middle East performing strongly, although Europe as a mature market is also expected to show strong growth to 2040, with Russia and Turkey increasing investment. The Middle East acts as an ‘aviation bridge’ for long haul flights north to south and east to west, although the rise of non-stop flights from Australia and financial constraints on local operators may subdue growth.

The need to expand and redevelop existing airports in Europe is driving growth in the region. Asia-Pacific is projected to lead growth globally, due to fast-growing emerging markets such as India and Vietnam. Rising numbers in the affluent middle class in developing countries in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa (MEA) are driving demand for air travel, while increased competition among low-cost airlines is increasing the number of flights worldwide. The top ten countries for air passenger growth in 2017-2040 are all emerging and developing economies led by Vietnam and India.

In terms of the project pipeline value, Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest share with US$332.4 billion. The Middle East and Africa is in second place, with projects valuing US$222.2 billion. Europe has projects valued at US$151.2 billion, while the Americas has a project pipeline of US$150.5 billion, trailing the other regions.
