Airport retailing has grown in popularity in recent years. Often referred to as travel retailing (because it takes place primarily, but not entirely, at an airport), it has become an important strategy for companies looking to promote and build brand awareness. Airports with low airfares cannot generate significant revenue from the aeronautical business. As a result, they have transitioned their business to non-aeronautical businesses such as retail stores, restaurants, bars and cafes. Airport retail may also include hotels, nursing homes, car rental outlets, banks, exchange offices, pharmacies, and other stores that sell jewelry, books and magazines, gifts and crafts, clothing and accessories, convenience stores, optics, fragrances and perfumes.

The airport retail market is being driven by an increase in passenger numbers, particularly in countries with a high level of public transport, such as India and China. The airport retail market is also being driven by travelers’ desire to shop on the go and the growing ability of retailers to sell products. The time passengers spend in airports has also increased as a result of earlier airline check-in times due to operational and security concerns. This has given retailers the ability to sell products more efficiently.

People in developing economies have more disposable income, which has given big brands the opportunity to open stores in airports. People shop more between going through the security and immigration counters and boarding the plane. To maximize this time frame, airports strive to reduce wait times in check-in, security and immigration lines. Reasonable prices and the presence of well-known brands at discount prices are important factors that encourage travelers to shop at airport retail stores.

Based on product type, the perfumes and cosmetics segment accounted for nearly two-fifths of the global airport retail market share in 2019, and is expected to rule by the end of 2027. The same segment would also post the fastest CAGR of 13.7% from 2021 to 2027. The improvement in lifestyle coupled with the increase in the affluent population drives the growth of the segment.

Based on airport size, the large airport segment contributed nearly three-fifths of global airport retail market revenue in 2019, and is forecast to lead the way by 2027. Large airports are located in the capital region of countries and are popular vacation destinations. . These airports have a considerable number of business class travelers who contribute significantly to the sale of products through the travel retail hubs. These factors drive the growth of the segment.
