Aircraft Catering Vehicle Market: Introduction
An aircraft catering vehicle is a type of ground support vehicle which is used to deliver in-flight catering services at airports. Aircraft catering vehicles come with body insulation and are equipped with systems that facilitate refrigeration or heating, as per the requirements. Generally, in aircraft catering vehicles, lifting and lowering of the van body is done using the hydraulic scissor mechanism, which ensures that the aircraft catering vehicle can cater to every type of airplane, be it small or large body aircrafts. Large international airlines, sometimes, do more than a thousand takeoffs and landings every day and catering services enhance passengers’ comfort. Strict hygiene and safety demanded by the aviation industry is increasing the demand for aircraft catering vehicles for the efficient transportation of catering equipment and food supplies to and from the aircraft. This particular factor, in turn, is expected to drive the aircraft catering vehicle market’s growth across the globe during the forecast period.
Aircraft Catering Vehicle Market: Dynamics
The aviation industry has always been under the scanner of regulating authorities and is required to adhere to various guidelines issued by them. Several regulations existing with regards to aircraft ground support equipment are the key factors driving the growth of the aircraft catering vehicle market. Growth in air passenger traffic across the globe is also one of the major factors propelling the demand for aircraft catering vehicles, which in turn, is expected to contribute to the global aircraft catering vehicle market in the coming years.
However, one of the challenges restraining the growth of aircraft catering vehicles is the lack of trained professionals to operate specific aircraft ground support equipment. This can indirectly result into safety hazards as well as low production output.
The ongoing developments in the aviation industry and upcoming projects for new as well as existing airports are expected to create significant opportunities for the growth of the aircraft catering vehicle manufacturers in the coming years.
The ongoing trend gaining momentum in the aircraft catering vehicle market is shifting preference of airline companies and airport authorities towards renting of ground support equipment to minimize their maintenance and inventory costs.
