Passenger Boarding Bridge Market Outlook - 2027

The standard feature at global airports is passenger boarding bridges for decades now. A passenger airport boarding bridge is often referred to as an air, jet, or sky bridge. Boarding passageways are designed to carry passengers/passengers comfortably and safely to aircraft because passengers are not exposed to the airport's weather and sound. Since the passenger boarding bridges are an expanded terminal on the airport itself, they are well connected to the terminal 's atmosphere and design. It also improves safety by providing the passengers from the embarkation port of the terminal to their seats on airplanes with a protected and safe passage.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis: 

  • Companies are experiencing production disruption and declining demand in commercial aviation as staff go home, travelers stop flying and consumers delay the delivery of new aircraft. Replacement parts demand is also reduced since less maintenance is required at the moment. 
  • Aircraft manufacturers are by definition capital-intensive, creating short-term cash flow and liquidity issues. MRO services are primarily required by the size and flight activities of the global fleet, but with diverse temporary influences. The requirement for all of the span-based flight-hour/aircraft service will vanish once the aircraft has been grounded. 
  • Because of the current fuel rates, we need to believe that cash-constrained airlines will postpone scheduled aircraft replacements in particular as the older flights, less fuel-efficient aircraft will continue to be economical.
  • While most organizations now have business continuity plans, the evolving and unpredictable causes of an outbreak such as COVID-19 cannot be fully addressed. Although air traffic has recovered steadily from previous crises, there has been extensive debate about ways to recover traffic from the present crisis.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

The global demand for passenger boarding is guided by increased passengers, renovation and upgrading of older facilities, expansion of existing terminals, and development of new airports. Growing passenger traffic and the aircraft's high turnaround time put pressure on airport agencies to build improved infrastructure including advanced passenger boarding bridges. Increasing concerns about airport security, the execution of e-passports, and the need for increased aircraft land support infrastructure along with the rapidly growing aviation industry have guided investment efforts while paving the way for improved infrastructure growth. Nonetheless, there have been accidents that have impacted passenger and aircraft safety due to insufficient training or operational deficiencies of the sensors mounted on passenger boarding bridges. It has damaged both aircraft and airport infrastructure and has disrupted passenger services and raised safety concerns.

The Global passenger boarding bridge market trends are as follows:

New product launches to flourish the market

ShinMaywa Industries in Japan has developed AI technology to place passenger boarding bridges automatically as close to 10 cm at aircraft doors, far closer than the current models. Also, at inter airport Europe 2019, ADELTE Relaunched Apronaut. Apronaut is the first software-based PBB Docking Simulator in the world to provide rigorous training in a nil-risk environment for PBB operators. The simulator enables staff to practice, dock, activate, and dock on all types of aircraft repeatedly, develop experience and confidence quickly without having to endanger actual equipment or take out PBBs.

AI-equipped passenger boarding bridges along with increasing safety concerns are driving the market growth

Technological innovation and automation in the rising aviation industry are setting new standards for passenger boarding bridge manufacturers. Innovation and automation are rapidly becoming an important part of the aviation sector as airports can help solve groundwork shortages, provided that highly advanced technical bridges do not need highly qualified operators. As airports continue to encounter workforce shortages and high attrition levels for workers in general, the emphasis has turned to the testing and deployment of an automated docking system fitted with Artificial Intelligence passenger bridges. In major cities, expanding airports with huge passenger traffic has provided manufacturers with the ability to launch and sell their advanced PBBs.
