"One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Collective Pooling of Air Side Equipment," says a senior analyst for the Industrials industry at Technavio.

The number of air travelers is expected to increase during the forecast period. With the increasing number of air travelers, the congestion in airports is also escalating. Hence, to cater to the growing demand, several countries are investing in airport infrastructure by enhancing the passenger and cargo-carrying capacity of airports. Ground handling equipment for different airport ground handling services are leased or owned by ground handlers and stored at airport terminals. The storage costs for vendors increases when the number of stored ground handling equipment becomes greater than the actual requirement. To ensure cost and capacity efficient airport operations, airports, airlines, and ground handlers are taking up initiatives such as collective pooling of airside equipment. By collective pooling of airside equipment, vendors can enjoy various benefits, including reduction of storage, maintenance and equipment purchasing expenditure, terminal stands congestion, and flight delays due to the unavailability of equipment. Collective pooling helps airports procure all equipment and store them centrally to lease them to ground handling service providers as per requirement, thereby increasing the efficiency of ground handling operations. Such factors will drive the airport handling services market.

As the markets recover Technavio expects the airport handling services market size to grow by USD 43.06 billion during the period 2020-2024.
