Top 20 Aviation Technology Solution Companies - 2020

Last year, the aviation industry saw several trends that changed the sector’s present attire. However, in 2020, the industry’s focus has shifted to providing customer-centric services. Moreover, the aviation industry is also experiencing a major impact with the ever-growing digitalization initiatives. The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), and more has fueled the sector to soar to newer heights with regard to operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. To this end, the compound annual growth of the sector is forecasted as 46.4 percent from 2019 to 2023. Besides, with favorable federal aviation regulations (FAA), the industry has sealed a secured future, which will continue to flourish.

On the other hand, as tech-based innovations gain traction, several airline companies are lining up with advanced aircraft to bring more innovation into 2020. These newer airlines have cutting-edge features such as biometrics, self-boarding, and inflight connectivity, which promise to make flying a comfortable and pleasant experience for passengers. Today, more customized and personalized services are being employed in the check-in, bag-drop, security, and immigration processes. Coupled with that, aviation experts are performing data analytics and deriving meaningful market-driven insights to further boost the efficacy of these tech-driven services.
