North America is the Largest Market for the Light and Very Light Jets in 2018

North America accounted for a major market share in 2018. North America is one of the premium markets for light jet operations. The region has one of the largest numbers of light and very light jet shipments by geography, due to the high demand for corporate travel from the US and Canada. The number of people performing intercontinental business travel is high in the US, who mostly prefer these light and very light jets. However, the market is beginning to saturate slowly in North America, and slowly the demand from regions like Middle East and Africa, which had the least market share, has been increasing. The main reason for the growth of the region is the demand from the Middle East, where the number of HNWI (High Net Worth Individuals) has grown over the years. Countries in this region are also focusing on the travel and tourism sector, which is expected to increase the private jet charter in the region in the upcoming years. Thus the region is expected to show a high rate of growth in the coming years.
