"Increasing Number of Airports to Deploy RFID Technology in Coming Years"

As of 2017, the global baggage handling systems market was led by the RFID segment. In coming years, RFID segment expected to register a faster growth. As compared to barcode, RFID is a relatively newer technology and helps to identify the location of the baggage. Unlike barcode systems wherein baggage information is primarily tagged and stored, RFID also offers tracking option thereby minimizing chances of misplacement and theft. Moreover, RFID tags reduces efforts of workers as they no longer require to scan each piece of baggage manually thereby freeing up workers to provide other services. It also enables security checks run a lot smoother, and reduces wait time. As per recent findings, global deployment of RFID technology has the potential to save the air transport industry more than US$3 billion by 2022. The benefit of RFID technology can be further understood from the fact that Delta Airlines has experienced an accuracy read rate of 99.9% for tracking bags across its stations equipped with RFID.

"Asia Pacific to Emerge as Lucrative Market for Investments in Coming Years"

The global baggage handling systems market was dominated by North America in terms of market value in 2017. Factors leading to its dominance includes the large scale of domestic and international air traffic in the region coupled with the region’s willingness to embrace advanced solutions. However, in coming years, Asia Pacific expected to witness the fastest CAGR growth on account of a significant increase in the number of air passengers in the region and also as a result of improved connectivity. India, China and Southeast Asian countries have undergone rapid up gradation of public transportation systems in recent years and airports in this context is no exception. The growth of the region can be understood from the fact that by 2020, passenger traffic at Indian airports expected to increase to 421 million from 265 million in 2017. Similarly, China in its 13th “Five Year Plan”, has planned to build over 56 new airports, expand 91 airports and re-locate 16 airports during the period from 2015 to 2020. Therefore, these factors are expected to make Asia Pacific as the most lucrative market for investments in the coming years.
