Airports are the backbone of the worldwide commercial air transportation system.  The rapid growth of this sector creates a continuing need to expand airports and provide high-quality services.  At the same time, technological, regulatory, security, and economic trends are placing new demands on airports.

On the economic front, the privatization of many formerly government-run airports around the world has created a growing class of airport operators with the financial means and the incentives to invest in modernizing their facilities and infrastructure.  The modernization of facilities and systems can help these private airport operators improve their bottom line by cutting costs and increasing traffic and revenues. The net result of these trends is that, over the next 20 years, airport operators are expected to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on new airport construction, expansion, and modernization.

The overall goal of this report is to comprehensively describe and quantify the worldwide market for advanced airport technologies such as air traffic management and control, communications, and landing aids. It covers only technologies and equipment that are based at the airport or nearby.  The emphasis is on civil aviation; the military market is not covered in detail.
The study is intended especially for executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, and other readers with a need to know where the market for advanced airport technologies is headed and where the greatest potential for growth exists in the next 5 years.
