The airline technology integration market is segmented into Technology, Offering and Deployment.

Airline Technology Integration Market by Technology

By technology, the cybersecurity sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. The airline technology integration sector is growing increasingly dependent on information technology and is increasingly susceptible to malicious cyber-attacks. The global aviation cybersecurity segment is expected to expand significantly, owing mostly to the increasing instances of cyber-attacks and cybercrime in the airline sector.

Airline Technology Integration Market by Offering

By offering, the software sub-segment dominated the global airline technology integration market share in 2021. Software includes application software, solutions, systems, and information technology services to airlines. For specific activities, including maintenance or airport operations, several airport software vendors provide off-the-shelf solutions. However, the majority of them offer integrated systems made up of modules for various operations. Such applications of airline technology integration in the aviation sector are bound to create a scope of growth for the sub-segment during the forecast period.

Airline Technology Integration Market by Deployment

By deployment, the on-premise sub-segment dominated the global airline technology integration market share in 2021. Airlines analytics solutions and services help to improve performance by lowering costs and downtime through the use of predictive and prescriptive analytics. These solutions are generally installed on-premises because end users choose internal software infrastructure and services to provide high levels of data security. As a result, several major airports use on-site aviation analytics rather than cloud-based ones. The higher cost of on-premises aviation analytics systems prevents small airports and airline companies from implementing them.

Airline Technology Integration Market by Region

By region, North American dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. The presence of well-established air transport infrastructure in the region, as well as increased investments in the adoption of cutting-edge digital and novel technologies, has contributed to the growth of the North America AI in airline technology integration market forecast period. The region's high demand for air travel and growing number of air travelers are projected to attract considerable investments in the use of AI technology at airports and aircrafts. Business globalization has resulted in an increase in international flight travel in the United States and Canada. North America was among the first to use AI-based technology in the aviation business.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Airline Technology Integration Industry

  • The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on practically all industries throughout the world. Furthermore, due to lockdown enforcements and travel limitations, it was shown that COVID-19 had a negative impact on airline technology operations, primarily affecting their revenue streams. Travel restrictions and border closures harmed airports and the aviation component of the travel industry.
  • Furthermore, airline information technology must have measures to control virus transmission. Many steps are being made to control virus transmission at airline, including paperless ticketing, automatic doors, restroom motion sensors, and doorless restroom entries.
  • Additionally, there are strong indications that the present decrease in demand for IT technology and digital solutions is a cultural phenomenon. COVID-19's influence on technology may be extremely favorable in the medium-to-long term, as everyone is forced to accept new technologies and discover their benefits. Further investments in digital infrastructure are expected.
