Above 40 Million Segment is Anticipated to Grow with the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

The above 40 million segment is expected to show significant growth during the forecast period. The main factors that are attributable to such growth include the increasing number of air passengers and growing spending on airport construction projects within these airports.

During the first half of 2023, Dubai International Airport announced that they have welcomed 41.6 million passengers, and this has exceeded 2019 figures owing to a strong recovery from the global pandemic. According to Dubai International Airport, the figures present a 49.1 percent increase in passenger numbers in the first quarter, compared with 27.9 million in 2022. Currently, Dubai International Airport has become one of the busiest airports in the world.

In terms of airport terminal expansion projects, Dubai International Airport is witnessing significant growth owing to a boom in air passenger traffic. For instance, in 2023, Dubai International Airport will undergo a revamp, which will likely continue for the next 5-7 years, and this will lead to DXB handling up to 120 million annual passengers within the next 15 years.

Furthermore, the Saudi Arabian government is undertaking a massive airport expansion and upgrade program to serve 330 million travelers by 2030 through USD 147 billion in investments that will likely support USD 82.3 billion of GDP by 2037. Moreover, airport developments in Saudi Arabia in recent years have been witnessing significant growth in order to achieve the Saudi Vision of 2030. Additionally, in 2023, Jeddah Airports Company is planning to transform King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) into one of the world’s largest airports with a USD 31 billion expansion plan that will increase its capacity to 114 million passengers a year.
