Airfield lighting is the lighting system used to ensure the safe and efficient working of air terminals and adjacent utilities. The system consists of a variety of lights used for various applications on the landing runways, as well as a variety of other utilities at the air terminals at night and during inclement weather. Thereby, airfield lighting has become a fundamental part of the general aviation terminal administration. Airfield lighting is classified into runway lighting, taxiway lighting, approach lighting, and apron lighting systems based on their locations and applications. The overall lighting system is controlled through a centralized command system in order to ensure optimum operational effectiveness.

With continuously increasing air traffic around the globe, air terminals have been experiencing numerous challenges pertaining to airport management. Issues such as securing the flow of both incoming and outgoing aircraft and maintaining visibility throughout the airfield have resulted in the adoption of advanced lighting systems at various airports across the world. Many airport administrations around the world are constantly upgrading their current lighting systems with improved and more energy-efficient ones. Such air terminal administrations rely on long-lasting relationships with airfield lighting suppliers to ensure constant upgradation with the latest and most advanced lighting systems. With continued requirements for lighting products coupled with ongoing product development, the airfield lighting market is expected to witness consistent growth during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.

The airfield lighting market is segmented, based on type, into the following categories:

  • Runway Lighting
  • Taxiway Lighting
  • Approach Lighting
  • Apron Lighting

In 2016, runway lighting led the overall airfield lighting market worldwide in terms of revenue. These lights are installed on both sides of the runway to assist aircraft during landings and departures at night as well as in unfavorable climatic conditions. With increased air traffic and the ceaseless expansion of airplane terminals, the demand for runway lighting is expected to witness continued growth in the following years.

The runway lighting segment trailed the runway lighting systems in terms of revenue in 2016. Busy airports around the world must accommodate a variety of aircraft types in order to load, unload, and fuel the aircraft. Apron lights, which are used at aircraft parks, help staff from the cargo, catering, and fueling departments safely navigate and complete their tasks. Rising freight and passenger transportation around the clock has been a key factor in the growing demand for apron lighting systems.

The global airfield lighting market is segmented, based on technology, into the following categories:

  • Non-LED
  • LED

In 2016, LED airfield lighting dominated the overall airfield lighting market. Light-emitting diodes, or LED lights, are exceptionally energy-efficient lighting technology. LED lighting is used in a variety of applications, including pointers and signals, as well as in the overall lighting system. They offer multiple benefits over conventional non-LED lighting in terms of energy consumption, working life, and construction to withstand unfavorable climatic and working conditions. Factors such as energy conservation, long service lives, and the requirement of limited maintenance are expected to contribute to the strong growth of LED airfield lighting systems in the following years.

In terms of revenue, the non-LED lighting systems segment trailed the LED lighting systems segment in 2016. Non-LED lights have been losing share in the overall market to the LED lighting segment on account of the benefits offered by LED technology. With high power utilization, a short life expectancy, and high maintenance, non-LED lights are expected to lose even more of their contribution to the overall airfield lighting market.

The airfield lighting market has been segmented on the basis of geographical regions, as per the following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • Germany
    • France
    • Italy
    • U.K.
    • Russia
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
    • India
    • China

    • Rest of Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa
    • GCC Countries
    • South Africa
    • Rest of Middle East and Africa

In 2016, North America dominated the overall airfield lighting market in terms of revenue. Increasing air transportation coupled with rising security concerns have accelerated the development of various air terminals in the North American region, particularly in the U.S. Adverse climatic conditions across different regions and rising air traffic have compelled various air terminal administrations across the region to keep a continuous check on their existing lighting systems. Thereby, airplane terminal administrations have been consistently updating their existing airfield lighting systems.

Europe trailed North America in the airfield lighting market in terms of revenue in 2016. Similar to the North American market, European nations have experienced a rise in passenger and cargo transportation. Ongoing air travel for tourism and business in the European nations has resulted in frequent upgrades of airplane terminal facilities, including periodic replacement of airfield lighting systems. The Asia Pacific region is expected to demonstrate the fastest growth in the global airfield lighting market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. Developing economies in Asia Pacific have expanded their air transportation facilities, with nearly 350 new air terminals being planned across the region. With the commissioning of the new airports, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to offer immense growth opportunities for the airfield lighting market.
