The Heliport Market size is estimated at USD 70.19 million in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 79.76 million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 2.59% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Key Highlights

  • The use of helicopters for VIP commute and tourism purposes has increased in many regions of the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom, China, and India, among other countries. This has increased the emphasis on the construction of new heliports in these regions, to support such services.
  • The upcoming oil and gas exploration and production projects in the Mediterranean, Guyana, and East Africa are expected to be relatively new and attractive markets for offshore helicopter services. Such projects are anticipated to open future market opportunities for heliport construction.
  • The market has relatively fewer barriers for new entrants, and any established construction company can venture into the industry.

Heliport Market Trends

General Aviation is Expected to Experience the Highest Growth during the Forecast Period

General aviation is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the increasing helicopter services for VIP transportation, personal transportation, and tourism. With increasing tourism and personal transportation through helicopters, there is an increasing demand for building rooftop heliports on skyscrapers. For instance, in 2015, 20 high-rise buildings were given the clearance to build helipads for commercial and personal use. Such approvals supported the growth of the helicopter services in the region, which resulted in the launch of heli-taxi services by Thumby Aviation in the city, connecting Electronic City to Bangalore International Airport, in March 2018. Similar services were also launched in the United States and in some of the European countries. With the increasing demand for such services, the demand for rooftop heliports is increasing, thereby, boosting the growth of the market segment.

North America was Anticipated to Garner the Highest Market Share in 2019

The North American region currently holds the highest share of the market. The market is anticipated to witness a gradual growth during the forecast, owing to the increasing helicopter services in the region. As of November 2018, there were 5,660 heliports (not all are for public use) and 9,750 civil helicopters in the United States. However, the demand for heliports is anticipated to increase, owing to the increasing adaptation of helicopters for public and para-public missions, like search and rescue, helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS), and law enforcement. Recently, in July 2019, Uber Copter launched its helicopter transportation services from Manhattan to JFK Airport and announced its plan to roll out these services to more customers (currently available for Platinum and Diamond members only) and across other cities. With such initiatives being underway, the market is anticipated to witness growth during the forecast period.

Heliport Industry Overview

The market for heliports (construction) is highly fragmented, as there are many regional players. The prominent players in the heliport market are Heliport Systems Inc., Aluminium Offshore Pte Ltd, FEC Heliports, Technokontrol Global Ltd, and Helitecnica. As there are no specific regulations for heliport construction, the market entry for established construction companies is easier. For instance, in September 2019, Jones Bros Civil Engineering United Kingdom, a United Kingdom-based civil engineering contractor, completed the construction of USD-5.45-million heliport base in Barrow-in-Furness, which will support the helicopters in transporting technicians to and from the Walney Extension offshore wind farm project. Similarly, South West Highways Ltd, a joint venture between Colas Ltd and Eurovia UK Ltd (provides maintenance services for highways, bridges, and coastal structures), was selected for the Derriford Helipad construction. This project was conducted by the Plymouth Hospital NHS Trust, to deliver an improved helicopter landing facility, with a contract value of USD 1.99 million (completed in 2015). With a large number of construction companies involved in the market, along with the increasing demand for new heliports across the world, the market competitiveness is anticipated to grow over the coming years.
