Key Market Trends

Growing Preference for Long-range Business Jets

  • Procurement of ultra-long-range jets (> 5000 Nm) is on a rise and currently holds a major share in the business jet market, globally. Some of the prominent aircraft models in this range are Gulfstream G650/650ER, Dassault’s Falcon 7X, and Boeing’s BBJ 777/787.
  • Moreover, Bombardier Business Aircraft, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, and Textron Inc. are expected to have higher deliveries, followed by Dassault Aviation SA and Embraer Executive Jets. Bombardier, Gulfstream, and other major players offer seats with varying capacities, based on the types of business jets.
  • As business jets are being utilized by sportspersons, government officials, tourists, businessmen, etc., seating capacity differs according to the requirements of the people hiring the jet. Business jets opted by tourists and business class passengers are anticipated to have higher seating capacity, as compared to others.
  • Apart from domestic and commercial applications, country-specific military bases and civilian operators deploy business jets for long and short hauls. The lockdown, due to COVID-19 pandemic, has reduced all flight activity, globally, which is expected to impact both the charter services market, as well as business jet procurement.
  • As the crude oil prices fall and fuel costs dip, the demand for large jets may rise in the used aircraft market. Similarly, fractional ownership of jets may also rise as owners try to avoid overhead costs and choose shared aircraft in view of the economic downturn and uncertainties of the market. Charter service operators are expected to see a sluggish market demand, post the lifting of travel bans. Whereas the demand may be higher for emergency medical transport and for bringing stranded citizens home from domestic and international locations, where lockdown is expected to be lifted much later.
