The commercial aircraft market is driven by a number of factors such as skyrocketing passenger traffic, aviation network infrastructural improvements, development of quieter and fuel-efficient aircraft, and government initiatives taken by several national governments encouraging the domestic commercial aircraft market. Some of these include liberalized taxation regions, R&D investments, and measures that aid the indigenous manufacturing of commercial aircraft. The commercial aircraft market is projected to witness a modest CAGR of 4.1% for the period from 2017 to 2022.
- Narrow body aircraft are the most popular in the commercial aircraft market and had the largest revenue share in the year 2017. Narrow body aircraft are poised to be the biggest beneficiary in the shift away from wide-body aircraft that carry more passengers at the cost of fuel efficiency. The narrow body aircraft segment is expected to be worth just under US$ 170 billion in end 2022, making it well-worth the while of all major stakeholders in the commercial aircraft market
- Wide-body aircraft’s have lost a large part of their appeal in the commercial aircraft market and are anticipated to lose further BPS over the course of the forecast period. However, the APEJ region could be the bright spot in the wide-body aircraft market as the region is predicted to record a CAGR of just under 5%. APEJ, riding on the shoulders of exploding air passenger traffic in China and India should require a large number of wide-body aircraft’s throughout the duration of the five-year study and companies must be in a position to cater to this demand
