“One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the increasing passenger traffic and influence of tourism,” says a senior analyst for Industrials at Technavio.

There is an increase in airline passenger traffic in the Middle East, North America, and Europe. The passenger traffic is increasing in APAC and Latin America due to lower fuel prices. The rising trend for tourism and the number of business travels will further increase passenger traffic. For instance, in the US, over 70% of the people go on vacations annually, either domestically or abroad. This, in turn, will drive the need for in-flight catering services in various airlines. The increasing passenger traffic and the influence of tourism will be major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market.

As the markets recover Technavio expects the in-flight catering services market size to grow by USD 5.79 billion during the period 2020-2024.
