Global Airport Baggage Handling System Market to Grow at a CAGR of 8.42% During the Period 2022-2027, Driven by Increasing Passenger Activity and Modernization of Airports

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Airport Baggage Handling System Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global airport baggage handling system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.42% during the period 2022-2027, led by implementation of security measures and expansion of operations.

Growing commuter activity, need to implement and sustain stringent security measures, and investments towards modernization of airports and expansion of operations are expected to drive the global airport baggage handling system market. North America, Europe and Asia are projected to be key markets.

Well-designed, efficient, and high-speed baggage handling systems enable airports to enhance their baggage handling capabilities and overall service towards airlines and commuters. Some components of baggage handling systems include: check-in and self-bag drop systems, X-ray screening, hold baggage screening, early baggage storage, bag transport and sortation systems, baggage unloading systems, and baggage reclaim carousels, among others.

Investments in systems enabling expansion and modernization of airport operations are likely to stimulate the market. For example, in 2020, BEUMER Group installed the first tote-based Independent Carrier System (ICS) - CrisBag® - to go live in USA. The system was installed at the new Harvey Milk Terminal 1, San Francisco Airport. The ICS baggage handling system was devised for shared airline use and enabled a hundred percent track and trace with each bag remaining in the same tote during the entire baggage handling and integrated security screening process. Equipped with an Explosives Detection System (EDS), CrisBag was the first system to be certified by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for in-tote baggage security screening.

In 2019, Royal Schiphol Group awarded, through a European tender, BEUMER Group one of two framework agreement contracts entailing future baggage handling projects to help the Group expand, replace and/or modify Amsterdam Schiphol Airport’s baggage handling system over the coming years. The airport sought to develop Amsterdam Schiphol as Europe’s preferred airport, and a reliable baggage handling system meeting high levels of availability was crucial to the objective.

In 2021, Siemens presented new products and software solutions at inter airport Europe. These included VarioBelt TilterPlus – an innovative product that employed an advanced tilting mechanism to assorted baggage in three directions: straight ahead, to the left and right. The high-performance solution based on the proven VarioBelt technology was already operational at several airports. Baggage 360 was a novel software that provided real-time baggage flow forecasting, optimized resource planning and an interactive airport map to regulate operations (even remotely).

In 2021, Siemens secured a contract for large-scale expansion of the baggage handling system in Terminal 2 of South Korea's Incheon Airport. The contract sought to help airport operator and customer Incheon International Airport Corporation increase capacity. Among other solutions, Siemens would supply modern, high-throughput VarioTray conveyor technology for quick and reliable transportation of baggage in Terminal 2.

In 2021, UK’s Stansted Airport completed a £70m upgrade to its baggage handling system. The upgrade involved the installation of 2.4 km of conveyor belts and track, and 180 automated carts for enhanced efficiency.

In 2021, Vanderlande designed and delivered a modern ICS baggage handling system to Los Angeles International Airport. The delivery of the individual carrier system (ICS) was part of a broader design-build-operate-maintain (DBOM) contract. The Vanderlande ICS included nearly 7 miles of conveyor, and the carrier-based system enabled an even, high-speed baggage process leading to steadfast operation and a high throughput. The overall capacity of the baggage handling system was 6,400 bags per hour.
