The global air traffic control equipment market is growing rapidly owing to the significant increase in air travel all over the world. The global air travel industry is facing tough time because of the availability of limited airspace. Owing to the limited airspace, aircrafts are obligated to take clumsy routes that result in extra consumption of fuel and lesser profitability. The air traffic control equipment ensures efficiency in air traffic management, which in turn leads to reduced carbon emissions. These equipments are integral to the air traffic control systems that direct aircrafts during takeoff and landings at airports to keep a safe distance from each other in sky and at the ground. These systems also direct aircrafts in bad weather to ensure least delay in the schedule.
