[Research Report] The aviation weather forecasting system market is expected to grow from US$ 737.09 million in 2022 to US$ 1,137.67 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2022 to 2028.

The introduction and adoption of electronic systems related to weather forecasting are compelling the aviation weather forecasting system market  players to develop innovative products and cater to the burgeoning demand. Further, several airports are undertaking the installation of electronic weather monitoring systems at their runways and airport premises to execute safer operations. In June 2020, Bangalore International Airport (BIAL), India, announced the installation of the aviation weather monitoring systems (AWMS) developed by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-funded National Aerospace Laboratories (CSIR-NAL) based in Bengaluru; the AWMS were installed at both ends of the new runway of BIAL. Moreover, the BIAL has installed four units of Drishti Transmissometers (developed by NAL) in association with Indian Metrological Department (IMD) to measure the runway visibility range. Vendors across the aviation weather forecasting system market are also focusing on developing AI-based software systems to provide better visual and graphical representations for an aviation weather forecasting report. Moreover, the installation of electronic and automated systems across airports is another major factor demanding the deployment of electronic and digital systems for weather forecasting and analytics to minimize errors introduced by other manual activities.

The traditional weather forecasting process involves outsourcing metrological forecast services that include rigorous text-based paperwork and the use of numerical weather prediction. The process has been schedule-driven, product-oriented, and labor-intensive. Since the past decade, weather forecasting has transformed drastically with the implementation of technologies that provide much more accurate data for forecasts. Computer technologies, electronic systems, and high-speed disseminating systems (e.g., the internet) are further driving the evolution of weather forecasting operations to much better and more accurate results. Electronic systems provide output in user-friendly, digital, and graphical formats that are more feasible and informative for readers or analysts.

– Aviation Weather Forecasting System Market

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Aviation Weather Forecasting System Market Growth


Airlines faced an economic loss of US$ 168 billion in 2020, which can be associated with a drop in airline operations and passenger traffic due to persistent health impairment and social restrictions. Companies that relied more on aviation for their financial performances continued their operations with cargo flights and half- or full-passenger flights, thus performing better than those depending on passenger flows. Further, companies with high fixed costs struggled more as they faced difficulties in shedding off the financial burden of maintaining smooth operations during unfavorable business conditions. The Global Observing System of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) serves as the foundation for meteorological and climate services in 193 WMO member countries and territories. These meteorological observations, however, rely on devices mounted on commercial aircraft to collect and transmit data to ground stations. The drastic decline in flights caused a fall in meteorological measurements from 90% to 75%. As a result, only a fraction of 800,000 daily readings were available for meteorologists for forecasting. To compensate for this loss, countries had to rely on their domestic national weather forecasting capacities in 2020.

Market Insights – Aviation Weather Forecasting System Market
