Analysis of the Global Business Aircraft Market : Waiting for Stable Economic Recovery

May 14, 2015, 10:02 ET from ReportBuyer




LONDON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Key Findings

•The number of pre-owned aircraft for sale is a trend indicator for new business aircraft demand, and although the number has been declining, pre-owned aircraft prices remain fairly low. This creates a gap between new and pre-owned aircraft pricing that restrains new business aircraft purchases.
•Asia-Pacific, China, India, and the Middle East have become the most significant growth areas for the business aircraft market, but North America and Europe remain the largest markets.
•Modifications tend to be reduced in scope, but modification facilities in North America and Europe are booked through the foreseeable future.
•New deliveries of heavy airframes are at record levels and represent the major market sales area.
•The medium jet market has started to recover, predominantly in the longer range portion. Light jet market growth is still small, but there is some hope for market growth.
•The aircraft manufacturers are careful with their production rates. Estimates of future production rates are restrained.
•The "Great Recession" has changed the business aircraft business model. In 2007, virtually every type of business aircraft usage was growing, unlike now.
