How well is the Global Airport Construction Industry Performing?

Airport and air travel growth is expected to follow growth in global regional economies, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East are performing strongly. The Middle East acts as an ‘aviation bridge’ for long haul flights north to south and east to west.

There is a need to expand and redevelop existing airports in Europe and this in turn is driving growth in the region.
Asia-Pacific is projected to lead in global growth, due to the fast-growing emerging markets including India and Vietnam.

In developing countries in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa (MEA) indicate that rising numbers in the affluent middle class are driving demand for air travel, while increased competition among low-cost airlines is increasing the number of flights worldwide.

Find out which key factors are driving the growth in project activity in all regions.
