A passenger boarding bridge (PBB), also known as an air bridge, jet bridge, jetway, and sky bridge, is an enclosed, elevated passageway that extends from an airport terminal gate to an airplane. This aerobridge benefits the passenger to travel safely from the airport terminal to the aircraft and protects them from weather conditions. It also improves security by limiting access to aprons and operational areas. Passenger boarding bridges can be found in many configurations and may be fixed or movable, depending upon the installation.

Passenger Boarding Bridge Market

Nowadays, modern techniques such as mobile units are used to faster the aerobridge from one terminal end to another. These units are height adjustable and can be used by multiple aircraft. For instance, ShinMaywa Industries in Japan has developed AI technology to place passenger boarding bridges automatically as close to 10 cm at aircraft doors, which is far closer than the current present models in the passenger boarding bridge market. Moreover, at inter airport Europe 2019, ADELTE relaunched Apronaut. It is the first software-based passenger boarding bridge (PBB) docking simulator in the world to offer rigorous training in a nil-risk environment for PBB operators. This PBB docking simulator enables staff to practice, dock, activate, and dock on all types of aircraft repeatedly.

The factors such as rise in aviation passenger traffic, increase in demand for large aircraft, and launch of upgraded products to improve infrastructural growth supplement the growth of the passenger boarding bridge market. However, long time life cycle for replacement of passenger boarding bridges and dearth of skilled workforce are the factors expected to hamper the growth of the market. In addition, rise in greenfield and brownfield airport projects and modernization of airports create market opportunities for the key players operating in the passenger boarding bridge industry.

Rise in aviation passenger traffic

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), by 2035, passenger traffic and freight volume should be double. Factors such as growth in disposal income of the middle-class population and the emergence of low-cost airlines have led to an increase in number of airline passengers. Major countries such as Canada, U.S., Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, China, Saudi Arabia, and India witnessed rise in number of air passengers. For instance, according to the Bureau of transportation, in October 2021, U.S. Airlines’ passengers increased 119% from October 2020. According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), passenger numbers could double to 8.2 billion in 2037 at 3.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Therefore, an increase in aviation passenger traffic indirectly is expected to boost the demand for passenger boarding bridge market. Participants of the aviation industry need to use analytical solutions to predict customer preferences, reduce operational cost, manage fuel cost, and others with increment in passenger traffic will generate an enormous amount of information.

Increase in demand for large aircraft

As increment in passenger traffic is projected to generate an enormous amount of information, participants of the aviation industry need to use analytical solutions to predict customer preferences, reduce operational cost, manage fuel cost, and others. To address this growing passenger traffic, several airlines are now buying large aircrafts to accommodate more passengers onboard single trips. Airlines are ordering large aircraft such as the Boeing 747-8 and the Airbus A380. Following this increase in the number of exceptionally large aircraft (VLA) deliveries, airport boarding areas gates now must accommodate more passengers per gate per flight. Boarding all passengers using passenger stairs is time consuming and could result in loss of potential revenue as the turnaround time of an aircraft increases. Passenger boarding bridges cater to these problems efficiently and conveniently, which drives their passenger boarding bridge industry, especially for use on large aircraft.

Long time life cycle for replacement of passenger boarding bridges

Passenger boarding bridges (PBBs) were introduced in 1959 at the San Francisco international Airport (U.S.). A typical aerobridge serves for 15 to 20 years after which it is replaced. The installation of new PBBs largely depends on upcoming airport construction and modernization programs. Also, the airport authority tends to opt for the refurbishment of aerobridges as it provides an expected lifespan of 8 to 10 years at half the cost of a new PBB. Moreover, it provides airports with the possibility to upgrade and customize PBBs in terms of appearance and performance. The cost of buying new PBBs and their installation is high when compared to the refurbishment of the existing ones. Apart from this, the time needed to order, procure, and install a PBB is also a restraining factor.

Rise in greenfield and brownfield airport projects

Greenfield airport project is a terminology defining construction of new airports on a greenfield land, whereas brownfield airport involves modification or upgrade of airports as per the global standards. Continuous rise in greenfield and brownfield airport projects in developing economies is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market. For instance, The Airport Infrastructure in India has witnessed improvisation and expansion of airports on a massive scale due to increase in support from private participants.

The government of India has received proposals for setting up greenfield and brownfield airports at various places across the country to improve connectivity and boost economy. Hence, rise in greenfield and brownfield airport projects in developing economies is expected to create lucrative opportunity for the passenger boarding bridge market.

As a consequence of the coronavirus outbreak, aerospace companies are experiencing production disruption and declining demand in commercial aviation, owing shortage of staff, a halt in aircraft production, and disruption in other aircraft cargo services. Also, due to high fuel rates during the pandemic, the cash-constrained airlines have postponed their aircraft replacements, including the airport equipment, which in turn negatively affected the market during the pandemic. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the end-use industries adversely, resulting in a sudden dip in 2020 passenger boarding bridge orders and installation. This is expected to negatively impact the passenger boarding bridges market in the short term, with a slow recovery expected in Q1 of 2021. However, investments done by major industry players and government bodies within North America and Europe to revive the semiconductor industry and the rivalry of the U.S. and China to have technological dominance through indigenous capabilities are expected to support business opportunities in the coming years.
