India Ground Handling Services Market Driven by Increasing Number of Airlines and Technological Advancement in Ground Support Equipments: Ken Research


Rising number of airlines entering the aviation market in India, foreign airlines not being permitted to undertake self handling and technological advancement in Ground Support Equipment were the key factors driving growth in India Ground Handling Services Market.

India ground handling services market grew at a positive CAGR of around 11% during FY’2013 – FY’2018. Foreign airlines were not allowed to undertake self handling at any airport until MOCA GHA 2017 was released. This increased opportunities for third party ground handling companies which provided end-to-end ground handling services to these airlines.

Technological advancement in Ground Support Equipment made the ground handling process more efficient and affected the market positively. For example, introduction of tow bar-less pushback (TBL) reduced time taken for pushback by almost 50% as compared to conventional pushback. New airlines entering the Indian aviation space also increased demand for ground handling services at the airports in the country and contributed to the growth of the ground handling services market in India.

The market faces certain challenges in terms of quality of labor recruited and cost of labor. Companies have to spend a lot of time and resources to train this labor. Airport environment and airport accidents also increase the unpredictability factor in provision of ground handling services and be very costly for companies in the market.

The market is expected to witness an increase in number of air passengers and air freight in the future due to rising per capita income and growth in e-commerce industry. The ground handling services market in India will be positively affected by the implementation of government schemes.
