Air Traffic Control (ATC) Market by Airspace (ATCSCC, ARTCC, TRACON, ATCT, FSS), Application (Communication, Navigation, Surveillance, Automation), Sector (Commercial, Defense), Investment Type, System, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Modernization of air traffic management infrastructure is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the air traffic control market”
The air traffic control market is projected to reach USD 56.07 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.75% from 2017 to 2022. Air Traffic Control (ATC) is an integral part of an airport’s infrastructure. With the increasing focus on operational safety and automation at airports, aviation authorities have been investing in the upgrade of ATC equipment to ensure efficient aircraft movement and streamline flight operations. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the rising need for better airspace management and the increasing number of airport expansion projects in the Asia Pacific region.
“The ATCSCC segment is estimated to be the largest airspace segment of the air traffic control market in 2017”
Based on airspace, the Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC) segment is estimated to lead the air traffic control market in 2017. Increasing air traffic and airspace congestion and the growing need for advanced capabilities in ATC equipment are major factors contributing to the growth of the ATCSCC segment of the air traffic control market.
“The commercial segment of the air traffic control market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Based on sector, the commercial segment of the air traffic control market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Aircraft flying in the commercial airspace depend on pre-determined flight paths and code of commercial conduct, which vary based on the type of aircraft and air traffic. New technologies based on automated data links for communication, navigation, and surveillance, are being implemented, which allow aircraft to fly within a global framework of information systems, rather than to rely on voice communications between pilots and air traffic controllers. Such technological advancements in the field of ATC are anticipated to drive the growth of the air traffic control market in the commercial sector.
