A Service Market in the Making

Baggage and cargo handling is essential to airport operations and can cause complications in the event of failure, ranging from lost luggage to widespread disruption of airport operations. Furthermore, airports around the globe are expanding or being built, which creates opportunities for new baggage and cargo handling facilities. This insight takes a global snapshot of the airport baggage and cargo handling market to furnish the following elements of essential information: market participants, airport baggage handling projects, market trends, and market drivers and restraints. The base year used is 2013.

Key Findings
-Frost & Sullivan’s conservative estimate of the global airport baggage and cargo handling market is roughly $ billion for 2013.
-The services segment was found to be the most stable revenue generator. New airport construction, which lays the foundation for baggage and cargo handling, offers sporadic opportunities compared to the higher upkeep and maintenance required at older airports.
-Asia leads the market, as China plans to invest an estimated $ million in the construction of someto regional airports by 2015. The Middle East placed 2nd in the market, as its airlines recorded large increases of passenger traffic in 2013, prompting several sizeable projects for new and expanded handling systems.
-Crisplant (BEUMER Group), Vanderlande Industries, and Siemens were the most active companies in 2013, claiming the largest share of contracts for that year. Several other notables included Daifuku Logan, SACO, BCS Group, Alstef, and Parson, all of which landed significant contracts and, while uncorroborated, may have subcontracted on larger projects.
-One of the most prevalent trends for baggage handling systems (BHSs) are self-service technologies, including remote baggage drop-off sites, permanent bag tags, and self-check-in kiosks. In Europe, where rail transportation is a popular connection method to airports, baggage handling can begin at some designated train stations.
-The rise in passengers and economic growth drives the airport baggage and cargo handling market. However, the increased number of travelers requires more security, which boosts costs and slows the handling process.

Market Overview
-The global airport baggage and cargo handling market rises and falls in very close proximity to a country’s economic performance. Upturns in an economy create more wealth people use to travel, and increases in trade activity fuel air cargo demand.
-Airports around the globe are expanding or being built new, which open opportunities for new baggage and cargo handling facilities.
oA new international airport (to be named Gandhara International Airport) has been under construction near Islamabad/Rawalpindi, Pakistan since 2006 and is expected to be complete and operational by April 2015.
oSeveral years ago, China announced plans to build new airports and expand its existing airports as part of a 5-year plan that ends in 2015. However, some reporting indicates that many of its airports are losing money.
oIn the United States, New York Governor Cuomo recently announced that his state is taking control of an ambitious $ billion construction project for a new central terminal at LaGuardia, he further plans to upgrade cargo operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
-Baggage handling is essential to airport operations and can cause complications in the event of failure, ranging from several passengers not receiving their bags to widespread disruption of airport operations, including flight cancellations and the ensuing domino effect on both airlines and passengers.
-Based solely on secondary reporting, Frost & Sullivan conservatively estimates the global airport baggage and cargo handling market size for 2013 to be roughly $ billion.
