Aviation Insurance Market Overview and Introduction

Aviation insurance is a specialized insurance, which has been formulated to provide coverage to the specific operations of an aircraft and other possible risks in aviation. The concept of aviation insurance has gained momentum only of late. A series of aircraft disasters such as the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines with over 200 passengers on board, have not only prompted more and more people to buy aviation insurance but have also increased the number of claims by a huge margin. As aircraft disasters continue and are on a rise, flying is being looked at as a very risky affair. This has led to a lot of fear and consequently the need for aviation insurance.

The global aviation insurance market is majorly driven by an upsurge in the demand for insurance with increasing number of airports all over the world. According to the Centre for Aviation, in 2019, USD 62,397.83 million were investmented in new airports. For instance, across the Irish Sea, Dublin Airport Authority (daa) commenced consultations on its USD1 billion investment program, which is projected to increase Dublin Airport’s capacity by 40 million passengers a year. For the development of smart airports, numerous automated systems have been implemented for passengers or travelers preferring self-services. These automated services are generally installed across airport facilities from check-in stands to baggage handling systems. Moreover, the insurance covers liabilities originating from passenger injuries, round handling, delays, injuries due to accidents, baggage liability, and aviation product liability. The increasing utilization of self-service technologies is also boosting the market growth. For instance, at the Miami International Airport, the beacon technology is currently being utilized to pinpoint every passenger’s location within a terminal. With a smartphone app, passengers are able to receive turn-by-turn directions to their gate or the closest amenity including bookstores, airport lounges, restaurants, and restrooms. An increase in travel & tourism is also propelling the market to grow. According to the U.S. Travel Association, domestic travel within the U.S. increased by 1.7% in 2019 whereas domestic & international travelers spent $1.1 trillion. However, privacy concerns regarding personal data among people may the hinder market growth to a certain extent.
