Ground Support Equipment Market Statistics - 2027

The global ground support equipment market was valued at $13.02 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $22.0 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.7% from 2020 to 2027.

Ground support equipment (GSE) is designed to support the operations of an aircraft whilst it is at the airport. GSE comprises airplane push-back & hook-up, forklifts & lifts, carts, vehicles, air-conditioning tugs, belt & container loaders, light-duty trucks, and other equipment that serve the purpose of powering, towing, and servicing. Further, such equipment enable passenger handling, baggage handling, aircraft mobility, repair, service, and maintenance functions. Many airlines either own/ maintain GSE or possess full service leasing from equipment management companies.

Top Impacting Factors

The significant factors impacting the growth of the ground support equipment market include increase in air traffic and cargo, rise in focus of airports on enhancing operational efficiency, high service standards, and leasing of ground support equipment. Further, high initial investments, surge in focus toward procurement of greener GSE, outsourcing of maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) to third party, and rise inuse of wireless technology have strong impact on the market. 

Increase in air traffic and cargo

Significant increase in the number of air passengers and cargo transportation has been witnessed across the globe. In addition, this growth is projected to continue throughout the forecast period, which is anticipated to increase the adoption of advanced GSE by airports. For instance, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), 52.2 million metric tons of cargo was transported in 2015 and is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 4.1% for the next 5 years. In addition, as per IATA’s 20-year air passenger forecast, the number of air traveler could double to 8.2 billion by end of 2037. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the ground support equipment market. Thus, surge in number of passengers as well as cargo has augmented the demand for ground support equipment.

Non-Powered GSE is projected as the most lucrative segments

 

Rise infocus of airports on enhancing operational efficiency

Airports are making large and significant improvements to increase their operating efficiency and decrease turn around time. The emergence of underground GSE has helped enhance the speed of operations and reduced the congestion of equipment on airports. Various tools are being developed to improve the overall operational efficiency. For instance, airports in Latin America and the Caribbean are using Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) tool for their operational efficiency since June 2019. Airport-CDM increases the predictability of operating by improving the quality of planning and increasing the situational awareness, which is based on real time information exchange. The benefit of enhancing operational efficiency is that it helps in the reduction of operational cost and increases profit. Therefore, it is important for airport authorities to have competent ground support equipment. This drives the growth of the ground support equipment market.

Cargo handling is projected as the most lucrative segments

 

Outsourcing maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) to third party

Airport authorities can outsource maintenance, repair, and overhaul of GSE (expenditure of 13 to 15% of total revenue according to an India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) report) so that they can focus on key business strategy. It is anticipated to increase the speed and improve quality of service delivery. This, in turn, is opportunistic for the ground support equipment market expansion.
