Boasting traffic forecasts for international markets, the ACI World Airport Traffic Forecasts (WATF) 2020-2040 dataset presents detailed metrics which include total passengers (broken down into international and domestic traffic), total air cargo and total aircraft movements.
Absolute figures, compound annual growth rates (CAGRs), market shares and global growth contributions are presented over three-time horizons which include short-, medium- and long-term. In addition to global forecasts, regional estimates have been developed for Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America-Caribbean, the Middle East and North America.
Airport traffic projections are also presented for major economic groupings such as emerging versus advanced economies, BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US), MINT (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey) and more.
The WATF is distributed in a standard EXCEL format and includes analyses, summary tables, predicted rankings and charts as well as the full dataset of forecasts.
