The installed base of airport asset tracking systems will reach 0.4 million units in 2023

An increasing number of companies have introduced asset tracking and management solutions which can be used to keep track of airport assets and improve the efficiency of ground handling operations and maintenance routines. The research estimates that the global installed base of active airport asset tracking systems was less than 0.2 million units in 2018. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.1 percent, the active installed base is estimated to reach close to 0.4 million units worldwide in 2023. This includes all airport asset tracking systems deployed for various motorised ground support equipment (GSE), non-motorised equipment (NME) as well as other applicable airport assets including on-road vehicles used in airport environments. The researcher's definition of an airport asset tracking solution covers systems based on various technologies including conventional cellular-based IoT connectivity and emerging low-power wide-area (LPWA) wireless technology as well as proprietary radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The airport asset tracking market is served by a number of different types of players, ranging from specialists focused exclusively on tracking and management solutions for specific airport assets, to companies that offer a more comprehensive set of solutions for the aviation sector, and more general telematics players that also serve other industries. The publisher ranks Undagrid (GSEtrack), Quantum Aviation Solutions and Resonate MP4 (XOPS) as the leading vendors of airport asset tracking solutions in terms of installed base. Both Undagrid and Quantum have reached more than 10,000 active units respectively. Additional strong players include ADVEEZ, Targa Telematics and Pinnacle (iMATS). The latter has notably partnered with Honeywell which in late 2018 signed a major agreement with Swissport to deploy ground handling services jointly developed with Pinnacle. Targa Telematics has furthermore established a partnership with TCR Group which is also collaborating with Sensolus for non-motorised GSE tracking. Additional players active in the field of airport asset tracking, for example, include Litum IoT, DigiMobi, EC2E, INFORM, Ctrack (Inseego), Tri -Logical Technologies, Smarter Asset Management (SAM), Katlyn International, Speedshield Technologies and Geotab, all having installed bases of at least 1,000 units each.

This research report answers the following questions:

  • How many airport assets are tracked today?
