Growing End-Use Industries of Air Freight to Augment the Market Growth

North America is one of the most significant markets for air freight, with the United States being the leading regional market. The air freight market in the region is being driven by the growing end-use industries, which comprise electrical, personal care, machinery and automobile equipment, pharmaceutical, fashion, and retail industries, among others.

The Asia Pacific region is likely to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period. Surplus volume from China is expected to be supplied to other Southeast Asian countries. The  air freight market is also expected to be supported by the rising investments in the Southeast Asian nations by freight forwarders. The sourcing locations of the shippers are expected to change in the coming years, that is, cargo traffic is likely to be shifted from China to the Southeast Asian nations like Vietnam. The shift is expected to attract more third part logistics investments in the Southeast Asian nations, where the demand is healthy, and the potential is also high. The freight rates, however, are expected to increase between the United States and China, and are likely to affect the market and might act as a constraint for the air freight market growth for a short period.

Mexico is planning to add terminal 3 in the coming years in order to make the airport more manageable. In recent years, the airport has been facing problems like difficulty in managing slots. Adding another terminal is likely to manage all the flights in the region’s busiest airport. This expected addition is leading to more routes being explored by the shippers who are planning to route Chinese freight to the United States through Mexico, which is fuelling the market for air freight.

 

Rising Focus on Supply Chain Optimisation to Propel the Market Growth of Air Freight

With the growing focus on supply chain optimisation and transformation, the air freight market is witnessing a robust growth. The market is also being driven by supply chain diversification by various companies to mitigate risks and the emergence of countries like Mexico and India as manufacturing hubs, which, in turn, is boosting air traffic and shaping air cargo as a significant mode of transport. Moreover, the robust growth of the e-commerce industry and the rising demand for rapid delivery services are bolstering the market for air freight. As airlines are increasingly extending their services to end-to-end services, various companies are utilising air freight as an omnichannel, which is likely to provide impetus to the market growth. The modernisation of air freight and the deployment of latest technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and advanced analytics, to automate several operations of air freight are likely to further augment the market growth in the coming years.

 

Market Segmentation

Air freight refers to the carrier that is used to transport goods by air. Air freight facilities are offered by nearly all the airlines. There are two types of cargo that are delivered through air freight, namely, perishable and emergency items, and regular non-perishable goods. Products like jewellery, clothes, and other products are included in the non-perishable segment.

Rising Demand for Technologically-Advanced Products Driving the Market for Air Freight

The global air freight market is being driven by the growing demand for technologically advanced products and apparel, especially in the Asia Pacific region. The region has a rapidly growing electronics industry, owing to the developing economies and the rising disposable income of consumers. The expected plan of the shippers to shift from China to other Southeast Asian countries as the sourcing locations is also expected to support the demand growth for air freights.

 

Robust Growth of the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Equipment Industries to Augment the Market for Air Freight

The air freight market in Europe is being propelled by the growing demand for pharmaceuticals as well as medical equipment. The region is also witnessing a robust growth in its automobiles industry, which is providing further impetus to the market as air freight is extremely useful in the transportation of these products within the domestic and overseas markets. The Middle East and Africa market for air freight, on the other hand, is being supported by the rising demand for oil and mining equipment in the region. The construction activities in the region are also on the rise, providing a push to the market growth. The demand for air freights in Africa is also growing at a healthy, positive rate.

The North America air freight market is aided by the increasing demand for hi-tech appliances. Improved Capex, that is, capital expenditure, is also driving the freight market forward. The addition of another terminal at the Mexico airport is also expected to increase the demand for air freight in the region.
