About Airport E-gates
Airport e-gates are replacing the manual verification and validation at the arrival and departure terminals. Manual checking could lead to human errors, resulting in the bypassing of a potential threat. This also leads to long waiting queues in the airport, which, in turn, lead to dissatisfied customers.E-gates in airports are meant to ensure smooth flow of passengers at the immigration counters. It reduces the processing time per passenger approximately by 10-12 seconds. As e-gates provide a variety of self-service options including the identity check of passengers, security personnel can dedicate their time to reduce the chances of illegal border crossing activities.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global airport e-gates market to grow at a CAGR of 19.91% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global airport e-gates market for 2016-2020. The market size is calculated based on the revenue generated from the sales of e-gate deployments at airports worldwide. The scope excludes the services and installations, maintenances, and after-sale services.The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Airport E-gates Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global airport e-gates market: Gemalto, NEC, Safran, and Vision-Box.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AOptix, Atos, Automatic Systems, Ayonix, eGate Solutions, and SITA.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Emergence of multimodal biometrics is a key trend for this market. Multimodal biometrics include the combination of two or more biometric technologies for verification. Multimodal biometrics provides more accuracy because it identifies an individual through the use of two or more biometric technologies for authentication. These biometric systems are accurate, reliable, and secure, which is why they are widely adopted for applications such as border control. Some multimodal biometrics are available with both fingerprint and finger vein recognition technology in a single device, which saves the cost of buying two biometric devices. Multimodal biometrics is gaining prominence worldwide.”
According to the report, Fast Travel Program by IATA is a key driver for this market. Long queues at the arrival and departure terminals to complete the verification process are a common sight in airports. It is estimated by IATA that over 50% of passengers worldwide prefer more self-service options to speed up the verification procedures. Apart from reducing the delay in process points, IATA's Fast Travel Program enables annual savings of around $2.1 billion for the aviation industry as it cuts down on personnel training and hiring of personnel for security check.
Further, the report states that space constraints in airports is a challenge to market growth. Space constraints in airports are likely to become an increasing concern for the deployment of e-gates worldwide. This is expected to become an increasingly important issue particularly because the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the US Department of Homeland Security, is seeking to reconfigure checkpoints during the forecast period to accommodate new screening technologies.
