Synopsis

"Global Airports Survey 2013–2014: Market Trends, Buyer Spend and Procurement Strategies in the Global Airports Industry" is a new report by ICD Research that analyzes how airport industry companies' procurement expenditures, business strategies, and practices are set to change in 2013–2014. This report gives you access to the category-level spending outlooks, budgets, supplier selection criteria, business challenges, and investment opportunities of leading purchase decision makers. The report also identifies the future growth of buyers and suppliers, M&A, capital expenditure, staff hiring, and e-procurement. This report not only grants access to the opinions and strategies of business decision makers and competitors, but also examines their actions surrounding business priorities, as well as access to information categorized by region, company type, and size.

Summary

Why was the report written?

This report is the result of an extensive survey drawn from ICD Research's exclusive panel of leading global airport industry executives; it provides data and analysis on buyer expenditure, procurement, and developments within the global airports industry. The report includes key topics such as global airport industry buyer expenditure and procurement behaviors and strategies, and identifies the threats and opportunities within the global airport industry, economic outlook trends, and business confidence within global airport industry executives. Most secondary research reports are based on general industry drivers and do not understand the industry executives' attitude and changing behaviors, creating a gap in presenting the business outlook of the industry; in an effort to bridge this gap, ICD Research created this primary-research based report by gathering the opinions of multiple stakeholders in the value-chain of the global airport industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

Executives from the global airport industry anticipate an increase in levels of consolidation, with 50% of respondents projecting an increase in merger and acquisition (M&A) activities in 2013.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Revenue and margin pressures are created by the rising cost of raw materials and resources, and the expansion of business operations in foreign markets have prompted companies to consolidate positions and look for M&A to stabilize operations.

Reasons To Buy

China, Brazil and the Middle East are the important emerging markets to offer growth in 2013.

'Market uncertainty', 'cost containment', and 'responding to pricing pressure' remain the leading business concerns for the global airports industry in 2013.

Overall, for 2013, the average size of the annual procurement budget for global airport industry buyer respondents is projected at US$73 million, against US$126 million in 2012 and US$68 million in 2011.

'Level of service', 'price', 'financial strength and stability', and 'existing relationship with supplier' are considered the most important factors for supplier selection in the global airports industry, while 'proximity of supplier operations', 'environmental records and CSR', and the 'knowledge of buyer's market' are considered the least important.

While 16% of buyer respondents from the global airports industry are willing to implement e-procurement in 2013 or beyond, 43% are already in the different stages of implementation ('partially implemented', 'completely implemented', and 'evaluation or pilot use')

Key Highlights

An analysis of revenue growth expectations by senior level respondents reveals that 46% are 'more optimistic' about their company's revenue growth in 2013.

A significant percentage of airport operator respondents highlighted capital expenditure towards 'facility expansion', 'IT infrastructure development', and 'employee training' would increase in 2013.

The top three priorities for global airports industry buyer respondents in 2013 are 'improving operational efficiency', 'stabilize company finances', and 'expand in current market'.

A total of 45% of respondents from airport operator companies, and 53% of respondents from airport support services companies and 52% of respondents from airport industry supplier companies anticipate a minimum of 2% increase of their current workforce in 2013.

Survey results show that, respondents from the global airports industry identified Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong to offer the highest growth potential among developed countries in 2013–2014.Table of Contents
