Airport Lighting Market Snapshot 2023-2033

The global Airport Lighting market is expected to witness a market value of US$ 778.31 Million in 2023 and is expected to accumulate a market value of US$ 1,604.13 Million by registering a CAGR of 7.5% in the forecast period 2023 to 2033. The market for Airport Lighting market registered a CAGR of 3.4% in the historical period 2018 to 2022. Expansion of airport infrastructure as well as increasing focus on controlling maintenance costs across the globe are the major factors that are expected to augment the market growth.

As per Future Market Insights – market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global market value for Airport Lighting has been augmented, owing to the factors such as the rise in government investments for airport infrastructure, driven by increase in passenger traffic as well as surging disposable income. Moreover, lower operational and maintenance costs, and high focus on energy efficient lighting systems are other major factors that are expected to boost the growth of the airport lighting market over the analysis period.

Other factors including increasing research & development activities, and advent of electric and solar-powered LED technology are also expected to create lucrative avenues for the market growth in the near future. In order to curb the operational costs with the high maintenance of incandescent lights, the airport authorities have been increasingly inclining towards cost-efficient lighting solutions.

Solar powered LED lights have been adopted by the airport authorities as these are cheaper than their counterpart. These lighting solutions convert solar energy captured during the daytime to electrical energy, which supports seamless takeoff, landing and taxiing operations during night. In addition, the solar-powered lights require less maintenance, which benefits the airport authorities from incurring huge operational year on year costs.

On the regional end, the airport lighting market in North America is projected to account for the highest share during the forecast period, owing to the factors such as the high focus towards energy efficiency, low operational costs, and presence of large number of commercial as well as military airports in the region.

On the other hand, the Asia Pacific airport lighting market is expected to hold the second highest share during the analysis period, attributed to the factors such as the construction of new airports as well as the modernization of the existing airports in the region. Moreover, increase in the passenger traffic in various countries including India, Australia, and Indonesia is another major factor driving the regional market growth.

Furthermore, factors such as shifting from existing lights with new lighting systems to conserve energy and carbon emissions is another factor that is anticipated to fuel the regional market growth in the forthcoming years. For instance, as of July 2021, the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Hyderabad completed the conversion of 98% of its Airside lighting (Airfield signage, taxiway centerline lights, and runway lights) with energy-efficient LED lighting.

Recent developments in the technology, mergers and acquisitions, and partnerships within the companies involved in the designing of Airport Lighting are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth over the analysis period.

For instance, the Airports Authority of India (AAI), in August 2021, announced that it installed a state-of-the-art Precision Approach Lighting System (PALS) on the runway of the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, in order to improve safety during aircraft landings.

Subsequently, Mariehamn Airport, in July 2021, announced that the company replaced more than 130 lights that make up the runway lighting system at the airport, with eco-friendly LED lighting. The energy consumption of the new LED lighting is about 30% of the previous lights’ energy consumption.
