Key Market Trends

The Business Jet Segment Dominates in terms of Market Share

Currently, the business jet segment dominates the market and it is expected to continue its domination during the forecast period, due to an increase in the number of high/ultra-high-net-worth individuals over the past few years, with Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe being the largest contributors to the high-net-worth-individual growth. The growth of the business jet market is also due to the development of ultra-long-range jets that can travel almost halfway around the world, presenting fresh possibilities in personal and business travel.
