Airfield ground lighting (AGL) is built to support pilots during landing or takeoff. AGL is used to maintain, assess, and repair airfield ground lighting systems in an effective and efficient way. The airfield ground lighting system (AGL) is appropriate for individual switching and monitoring of airfield lighting; the system also boosts safety of aircraft ground movement in specific areas of the airfield.

Power-line based systems which use to communicate consistently on various types of transformers through different monitored regulators are limiting infrastructure costs for the airports. AGL systems have been developed because conventional power-line based communication systems could not provide reliability. Also, the latter could not display the potential that AGL systems hold.

As airport safety remains on a priority, and runway accidents have continuously been rising, technologies such as AGL systems have become crucial. As airports are focusing on decreasing their environmental impact, AGL can assist them with a wide spectrum of energy-efficient products and solutions. Various companies have developed wide-ranging, energy-efficient airfield ground lighting systems that cover all power supply solutions and lighting applications. A primary technology used to achieve this is LED lighting. LED consumes lower energy, and also increases the performance, efficiency, and safety of products.

As the primary function of AG systems is to deliver the pilot with a visual signal during the most critical phases of the flight, its brightness must constantly adapt itself to prevailing visibility conditions. The fixed light intensity has to remain constant, in spite of probable fluctuations in the power supply.

AGL systems are reliable and energy-efficient technologies that help airports operate sustainably and safely. AGL systems enable Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) operate and control a range of lighting functions from the control tower. They provide continuous current throughout the complete lighting circuit of airfield. These systems also provide uniform lamp brightness in long-distance circuit and allow ease of intensity control for airfield lights. These factors are projected to drive the growth of the airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market in the next few years. However, AGL systems are expensive, which is projected to restrain the growth of the airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market in the near future. Nevertheless, rise in demand for AGL systems is estimated to create lucrative opportunities for airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market players during the forecast period. The airfield lighting (AGL) system helps to enhance appearance, safety and support for night flights. Hence, currently many airports are upgrading their existing lighting system so as to reposition their current standard to advanced world-class standards. This in turn, identifying new business opportunities and fueling the growth of global airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market during the forecast period.

The global airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market can be segmented based on type, technology, and geography. On the basis of type, the airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market can be bifurcated into taxiway lighting system and runway lighting system. Based on technology, the airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market can be categorized into LED and non-LED.

In terms of region, the global airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market can be segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America is anticipated to hold the leading share of the global airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market during the forecast period due to the presence of global players in the region. Rising demand and popularity of this system in the region has helped airfield lighting systems suppliers proliferate considerably over recent years.

Leading companies operating in the global airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market include OCEM Airfield Technologies, Honeywell International Inc., Vosla GmbH, Carmanah Technologies Corp, atg airports limited and RNC Avionics Ltd. Companies are focusing on launching advanced services to strengthen their position in the airfield ground lighting (AGL) systems market and expand their customer base. They are also investing in research and development operations and concentrating on providing customized services.
