Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on North America Airport Hub Network Communication Market Growth


The COVID-19 outbreak dramatically impacted the global economy during its peak in Q1 and Q2 of 2020, and hampered business activities in various industries, including the aviation industry. The aviation industry in North America includes airport managing companies, aircraft manufacturing companies, airline companies, and companies that provide software for managing airports and aircraft. Moreover, air transportation significantly decreased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Air traffic in the US decreased by 33.5% in 2020, corresponding to 5.3 million fewer flights compared to 2019, according to International Air Transport Association (IATA). All these factors adversely affected airport hub network communication  market growth during the pandemic.

However, to promote organic as well as inorganic growth in the aviation industry, governments of various countries in North America have provided significant financial support to the industry through several programs such as Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. In 2022, the aviation industry quickly rebounded and recovered steadily. There are several prominent players operating in the aviation industry, such as Hawaiian Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Allegiant Air, and JetBlue. For instance, in December 2022, Collins Aerospace and Materna IPS signed an MOU to improve airport operations and provide passenger processing for airports and airlines. This is expected to increase efficiencies and enhance airline and passenger experiences. Such instances support the growth of the aviation industry, which is fueling the airport hub network communication market size.

Market Insights – Airport Hub Network Communication Market

Based on geography, the airport hub network communication market is primarily segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). North America is expected to account for the largest airport hub network communication market share in 2023, followed by Europe.

The aviation sector in Europe is a crucial contributor to the region’s economy. According to the European Commission, the global air transport is expected to grow by 5% by 2030. Due to the increasing traffic, the EU aviation policy is majorly focused on managing the traffic safely, which leads to greater flexibility and consistency in air traffic management. In addition, in 2015, European Commission adopted an Aviation Strategy for Europe, which focused on building the region’s economy, strengthening its industrial base, and increasing the air connections for its passengers between European countries and other countries. Such initiatives by the government have resulted in increased air traffic in the region. For instance, in March 2023, the Airports Council International (ACI Europe) announced that the passenger traffic in the European network of airports grew by more than 69% in January 2023 compared to January 2022. Thus, the growing aviation sector leads to increased air traffic, which boosts the demand for efficient communication between the airports and airline operators, contributing to the airport hub network communication market share in Europe.
