Abstract

Under the background of globalization, airport is not only an important part of urban infrastructure, but also an important component of modern economic system. Taking airport localization reform in 2002 as the demarcation point, this paper analyzes the industrial concentration of China's civil aviation airports from 2002 to 2022. This paper uses CR and HHI, selects airport passenger throughput as measurement index, and observes the evolution process of concentration of civil aviation airports. The results show that after airport localization reform, the industrial concentration of China's civil aviation airport industry shows a trend of continuous decrease, no matter CR index or HHI index. Its market structure changed from a low to medium concentration oligopoly in 2002-2013 to a low concentration oligopoly in 2014-2016, and then to an atomic type after 2017. In addition, government policy intervention, regional socio-economic development, other alternative transportation development and social public events are found to be the main factors affecting the market concentration of the civil aviation airport industry.
