The global remote towers market size is expected to reach USD 584.3 million by 2027 while exhibiting a stellar CAGR of 31.05% between 2020 and 2027. This is attributable to increasing focus on modernization of airports across the globe. Fortune Business Insights, in its latest report, titled “Remote Towers Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis by Operation (Single Multiple and Contingency), By System (Airport Equipment, Remote Towers Modules, Network Solutions), By Application (Communication, Information & Control, Surveillance, Visualization), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.”, observes that the market was worth USD 40 million in 2019 and is likely to witness significant growth in the forthcoming years.
Remote tower is a modern concept wherein the overall air traffic services of an airport are managed at a different place than the local control tower. They offer several benefits over the conventional air traffic control systems located at the airport. They provide extensive support tools that enhances the safety and improves the operational activities of the airport. Additionally, they provide several cost-saving options and aid in reduction of maintenance costs. These towers are equipped with sensors, high-resolution cameras, and hardware that deliver optimum quality air traffic services and are adopted widely across several airports across the globe.

Increasing Focus on Modernization of Airports to Augur Growth
According to the International Air Transport Association, the global air passenger traffic in 2019 rose by 4.2% when compared to 2018. Increasing air passenger traffic is placing a heavy strain on the terminal and ground facilities across several airports. Besides, this is leading to dangerous air congestion over major cities globally. To prevent any untoward incidents and mishaps, the airports are increasingly focusing on modernizing airport amenities and upgrading the operational services. Growing adoption of technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in the modernization process of the airports is expected to bode well for the growth of the global remote towers market during the forecast period.
Presence of Major Manufacturers in Europe to Aid Growth
Among all regions, the market in Europe is anticipated to witness considerable growth and hold the highest global remote towers market share during the forecast period. This is attributable to the presence of several manufacturers such as Thales Group, Saab, and Frequentis Group in the region. North America, on the other hand, is expected to hold second position in the market during the projected horizon. This is ascribable to factors such as increasing adoption of modern technology owing to the presence of major companies that are focusing on modernization of airports between 2020 and 2027.
