Paris Air Show: Boeing raises new aircraft demand forecast

Posted 20 June 2017 · Add Comment

Boeing has raised its forecast for new airplane demand, projecting the need for 41,030 new airplanes over the next 20 years valued at $6.1 trillion dollars.



The company's annual Current Market Outlook (CMO) was released today at the Paris Air Show, with total airplane demand rising 3.6% over last year's forecast.

"Passenger traffic has been very strong so far this year, and we expect to see it grow 4.7% each year over the next two decades," said Randy Tinseth, vice president of Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The market is especially hungry for single-aisle airplanes as more people start travelling by air."



The report says that the single-aisle segment will see the most growth over the forecast period, fueled by low-cost carriers and emerging markets, with 29,530 new airplanes needed in this segment, an increase of almost 5% over last year.

 

The forecast for the widebody segment includes 9,130 airplanes, with a large wave of potential replacement demand beginning early in the next decade. With more airlines shifting to small and medium/large widebody airplanes, the primary demand for very large airplanes going forward will be in the cargo market. Boeing projects the need for 920 new production widebody freighters over the forecast period.
