With the emergence of IoT technologies, the aviation industry has undergone tremendous transformation. The aviation sector is continuously adopting smart technologies to improve passenger experience to airport maintenance and cockpit connectivity.
Passenger engagement throughout the journey lifecycle has become a priority and a means to earn customer loyalty and revenue. IoT is playing a crucial role in enabling airlines to exceed customer expectations by modernizing their processes and systems.
Adoption of IoT technologies offers massive opportunities to unite technology, processes, people, and culture to deliver a seamless air travel experience. Airlines and airports are anticipating huge IT investments in the coming years and IoT will be a significant contributor in generating massive benefits.
The rising investments in IoT solutions in the aviation industry would propel the market growth in the coming years.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Aviation IoT Solutions Market
The COVID-19 pandemic is having an enormous impact on the aviation industry, affecting passenger traffic, air cargo demand, airport workforce and incoming revenues. The change in the behaviour of passengers amid the COVID-19 crisis, travel restrictions and the ensuing economic crisis have resulted in a dramatic drop in demand for airline services.
However, amid COVID-19 pandemic airports are undergoing a significant digital transformation, the investments on IoT technologies at airports has been increased. Airports are developing an interconnected sensor network and data hub to track and understand passenger flow and behaviour in the airport to minimize the spread of coronavirus.
During the pandemic the market has shown significant growth, and it is expected that the growth will increase by nearly 7% - 8% in Q1-Q3 2020. Post-COVID also, there will be huge demand for IoT solutions to ensure that there is trust in the people who used to use airports before. Hence, people will feel comfortable using the infrastructure as a healthy and safe place.
Aviation IoT Solutions Market: - Market Dynamics
Need to Improve Passenger Travel Experience
The adoption of IoT solutions at airports would help increase the revenue and simultaneously improve the overall passenger travel experience. The increasing investments in smart airports will leverage latest IoT technologies to improve the overall passenger experience while saving airports money over time, and improving customer loyalty.
For instance, the IoT enables smart beacons are strategically placed throughout the airport to provide real-time updates for everything present at the airport from identifying real-time parking availability to availability of restaurant table.
With the adoption of advanced IoT solutions airport authorities can seamlessly guide passengers from check-in to take-off with digital beacon-linked maps for easier navigation and wait time updates through SMS notifications.
According to research, around 85 percent of airline leaders expect identifiable benefits of IoT within the next three years, and 35 percent have already started experimenting with IoT improvements to combat rising costs. Thus, to improve the overall passenger travel experience at the airport, airport authorities are continuously adopting advanced IoT solutions, which in turn, would drive the market growth.
IoT Solutions to Enhance Airport Security
Airport security is a very critical element of an airport, which, if not properly invested in and appropriately implemented, could lead to ruining the reputation and business of an airport/country. Airports have to check in increasing numbers of passengers while also guaranteeing a high standard of security.
The deployment of IoT cameras provides increased security and allows users to better understand the behavior of passengers. Based on video analyses in real time, operations in airports can be optimized and resources can be planned more efficiently.
Moreover, IoT solutions would effectively enhance aviation security as it will allow for information exchange and facilitate information dissemination to the concerned personnel instantaneous. The rise in adoption of IoT solutions to provide enhanced security would drive the growth of aviation IoT solutions market.
