Hence, there is a dire need to induct smart baggage handling systems across airports that could facilitate better management and execution.
A report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) predicts that the global smart baggage handling systems market would accumulate revenues worth US$7,210.8 mn by 2025-end, rising up from a value of US$1,508.6 mn in 2016.
Airport Performance Index
Handling of baggage is a key parameters in defining the performance index of airports, and hence, several airports have inducted smart baggage handling systems to rank higher in terms of performance and customer-satisfaction. Furthermore, a number of factors such as airline guidelines, government regulations, and customer suggestions have also led airports to deploy smart baggage handling systems.
Security Breaches at Airports
Security is another key area that needs to be addressed by airports, and this also necessitates the deployment of smart baggage handling systems. Radio frequency identification scanning is amongst the most useful technologies offered by smart baggage handling systems which is expected to enhance the prospects of market growth.
