For the purpose of airport retailing market analysis, the market is segmented on the basis of product type, airport size, distribution channel, and region. Depending on product type, the market is divided into liquor & tobacco, perfumes & cosmetics, fashion & accessories, food & beverages, and others. In 2019, the perfumes & cosmetic segment held around 38% share of the global airport retailing market, and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in interest of people to explore new fragrances and products in the perfumes & cosmetic industry.

By airport size, the market is segregated into large airport, medium airport, and small airport. The medium airport segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate.

Growth Expansion of the retail businesses on the medium airports is mainly majorly driven by the increasing increase in spending capacity of the middle middle-income groups, this is the major reason for the highest CAGR of the medium size airports, and this will offer prominent airport retailing market opportunities during the forecast time period. By distribution channel, it is categorized into direct retailer, convenience store, specialty retailer, and departmental store.

The same region would also cite the fastest CAGR of 13.7% from 2021 to 2027. This is due to increase in number of new air routes and the introduction of low cost carrier (LCC) in the province.
