Market Insights

Lower airfares, growing living standards, and a growing middle class in large emerging markets, like China and India, are major contributors to increased air travel. Additionally, militaries across Philippines, Thailand, Argentina, Israel, India, and China, among others are expected to spend a lot of their defence budget in procuring new military aircraft and related equipment in the forecast period. These are some of the reasons for the growth of the aviation market during the forecast period with a CAGR of more than 2.5%.

Market Dynamics

There has been a continuous increase in the number of passengers who travel by air each year. Simultaneously, there has been a continual increase in the demand for new aircraft by the airlines to satisfy this growing demand. At present, there are more than 5,000 commercial airplanes in service currently in the world. In addition, there are many orders that are being taken up for the production of new aircraft around the world. The orders for new aircraft have increased at a greater pace for the leading aircraft manufacturers in the last year. In 2017, Airbus took 1,109 orders for the production of new airliners, while Boeing took 912 orders. These numbers show the demand for new aircraft by the airliners.

The global military expenditure experienced an increase of 1.1 % from 2016 to reach USD 1,739 billion in 2017. The developing countries have astonishing levels of poverty, yet their governments choose to devote a significant proportion of their resources to military spending. Militaries across Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Brazil, Argentina, Israel, Turkey, India, Pakistan, and China are expected to spend a lot of their defense budget in procuring new military aircraft and related equipment in the forecast period, with deliveries going as far as 10 years beyond 2023.

Regional Insights

North America currently is the market leader in the global aviation market, and it is expected to grow significantly in the near future. This growth fueled by rising in passenger traffic in the United States coupled with the increase in major aircraft procurement programs carried out by the US Department of Defense (DOD).

However, Asia-Pacific is expected to have the highest growth during the forecast period, due to the presence of large aviation hubs, like China and India. China is expected to displace the United States as the world’s largest aviation market in 2022, while the aircraft seat capacity in 2018 is set to a new high of 800 million seats for the first time. The procurements of aircraft by airlines in these countries to cater the increasing air traffic are expected to generate the demand that is likely to drive the aviation market in this region.
