In year 2020, the growth of passenger stairs market is expected to decrease significantly. The passenger stairs are mostly used on the airport for the travel between ground and door. The partial and complete lockdowns across the globe during this Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in the decline of outdoor outings of a large population pool. Moreover, the outbreak of Covid-19 has completely stopped the airlines across various countries. Thus, the passenger stairs market is anticipated to witness slow growth from 2020 to 2021. Furthermore, as significant market revenue is generated through the airlines sector, the product adoption is expected to decline in the near future.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Rajat Verma, “The Global Passenger Stairs Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2021-2027 driven by rising number of technologically advanced passenger stairs. Moreover, expansion of existing airports and burgeoning number of new airlines & airports across the globe are some of the factors driving the market growth. However, factors such as increase in the number of automated (aerobridge) systems and requirement of regular repair and maintenance for passenger stairs are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
