LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global airline ancillary services market 2017-2021 report. The global airline ancillary services market is foreseen to grow at a CAGR of above 15% during the forecast period. This market research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global airline ancillary services market is highly competitive with several players competing for market share. These vendors compete in terms of customization of product offerings, cost, and technological innovation. Companies such as United Airlines have succeeded in catering to the increasing demand for value-added services. However, to survive and succeed in such an intensely competitive market, airlines are required to make their offerings distinguishable through a clear and unique value proposition. This not only calls for the development of new technologies but also a balance with emerging technologies that could affect their product lines.

“Companies with superior technical and financial resources can design and develop products that can make their rivals' products outdated even before they are launched. Although FSC airlines are dominating the market, LCC airlines with small market shares also project a significant presence. Improving global economic scenario, coupled with increasing passenger traffic will fuel market growth, thereby making it an ideal time to launch new products or redesign the product offerings,” says Avimanyu Basu, a lead analyst at Technavio for aerospace components research.
