Key Market Trends

Commercial Aircraft Segment has the Highest Share in the Market in 2018

By the end of 2018, the commercial aircraft segment recorded the highest market share, primarily due to growing orders of newer generation commercial aircraft. Two commercial aircraft market giants, Airbus and Boeing, recorded 806 and 800 commercial aircraft deliveries, respectively. In addition, there is a huge order backlog with the commercial aircraft OEMs, which is expected to augment continuous commercial aircraft manufacturing and thus the demand for the parts and components of the aircraft, like the fuel systems, is slated to increase. Also, the fuel systems of an average commercial aircraft are huge and are more costly, compared to that of a military aircraft (except for the transport and tanker aircraft), general aviation aircraft or a UAV. In addition, the growing preference for Ultra Long Range aircraft by many airlines is expected to make the aircraft OEMs bring changes in the existing fuel systems to increase their fuel carrying capacities. For instance, Singapore Airlines has ordered seven A350-900 Ultra Long Range aircraft, and the aircraft are incorporated with a redesigned fuel systems. Among other modifications, the redesigned fuel system will help the aircraft in increasing its range.

Asia Pacific Region to Grow with the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period.

The market in the Asia Pacific is projected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The region is slowly becoming an aviation hub, with China, Japan, India, Australia, Indonesia, and Thailand being some of the prominent aviation markets in the world. China and India are projected to become the largest aviation markets in the world during the forecast period. Also, countries like China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Australia are also procuring military aircraft on a large scale. In addition to the procurements and orders, countries in the Asia Pacific are developing new aircraft, including Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) by Japan, and COMAC C919 and CR929 by China, Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) by India, and KF-X jointly by South Korea and Indonesia. The demand for these aircraft will mostly be from the same countries, and thus these aircraft developments will enhance the growth of the revenues from the region in the years to come.
