The technology in the aviation sector is also creating opportunities for the market players to bring enhanced customer security, flight efficiency & operations, and passenger experience on the ground & in the air. Besides, these technological advancements and improving connectivity have made the industry more vulnerable & prone to cyber-attacks.
Moreover, aviation is an extensive sector ranging from airlines, airports, technology providers, subcontractors, etc., and have access to sensitive information and operate across critical infrastructure. Hence, it is the most prominent target of cyber attackers. For instance:
Covid-19 Catastrophically Impacted the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market
Like other major industries, the aviation industry also observed a catastrophic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic last year, due to which international travel almost came to a complete standstill. The governments across several countries imposed stringent movement limitations to combat virus spread. Consequently, these restrictions severely affected the entire aviation sector and directly impacted the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market.
However, the airlines were still operating to provide essential services like transporting goods, patients, and healthcare workers. Since the beginning of 2021, the aviation sector has been playing a prominent role in transporting vaccinations and is the largest single transportation channel in the global history.
Nonetheless, the industry is likely to bring medical devices & healthcare services onboard to gather health information of passengers, which shall further determine the onboarding decisions & potential medical aid interventions for them. Therefore, market leaders shall establish data security measures to appropriately identify, classify, & protect captured data and enable these procedures, which, in turn, would augment the global aviation cyber security system market in the coming years.
Based on the Application, the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market segments into:
Of them all, the demand for cyber security systems for Air Traffic Management is expected to display the highest growth rate during 2021-26. Aviation & Air Traffic Management are highly interdependent & increasingly connected with massive data sharing & collaborations within the industry. Hence, the sector displays an urgent need to have a reliable cybersecurity system and adopt a coordinated approach at all levels.
Thales Group is one of the active participants in the market, owing to its extensive experience in air traffic management & cybersecurity for critical operations. The leader is implicated in several international initiatives with EASA & ICAO to set cybersecurity criteria & regulations and support air transportation in its digital transformation.
On the other hand, the Airport Management application is projected to dominate the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market through 2026. Airports are constantly undergoing developments in their infrastructural intelligence to enhance customer experience. The future airports shall have advanced communications infrastructure that will support the NextGen air transportation system and provide an open platform for end-to-end services & applications for all, with increased risks associated with cyberattacks. Hence, there's a mounting need for cybersecurity systems for airport management since they protect all confidential data associated with airport security and other aspects where automation & IT services are required.
Based on the Geography, the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market expands across:
Of them all, North America is projected to dominate the market through 2026, mainly due to the rapidly increasing advancement in aviation security solutions. The US dominates the regional market due to the presence of significant market players that are actively operating in cyber security systems. The leaders are incorporating more advanced cyber security programs that align with the government standards. Moreover, the US highly emphasizes its aviation sector and invests significantly in the R&D of superior cyber security systems.
On the other front, Europe is likely to emerge as an opportunistic region for the market in the coming years. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) ensures that cyber risks are taken into account from the time of aircraft design, development, & operation and is controlled at all times to avoid any impact on passenger safety. EASA has also cooperated with the European Commission and devised a roadmap for aviation cybersecurity. The agency also supports the development of resilience & secure European Aviation Systems, operating through regulatory activities, programs, & international collaborations to consolidate cyber security in its prevailing safety notions.
The most prominent factor expected to drive the Global Aviation Cyber Security System Market is the rapid technological advancements in the aviation sector toward enhancing its IT infrastructure and safeguarding its networks from cyberattacks.
