Top three contributors for the global airport walkway market are elaborated below:

Airport walkway market in the Americas: The US is the primary revenue contributing country in the airport walkway market in the Americas. The growth of the market in the region is attributable to the five-year wave of profitability that resulted from undertaking several strategies, including mergers and acquisitions, smart airport developments, and implementing capacity discipline. The estimated air traffic growth in Central America and the Caribbean is also anticipated to reflect positively on the airport walkway market in the Americas over the next four years.

According to Avimanyu Basu, a lead analyst at Technavio, specializing in research on aerospace components, “The South American region being one of the top-tier tourist attractions, is expected to generate a high passenger traffic. The rise in passenger traffic is anticipated to reflect on the demand for airport walkways in this region in the coming years. In addition, an investment of approximately USD 12 billion is expected in the development of new airports in Mexico City, which will also have a major effect on the airport moving walkway market.
