INSIGHT FROM FLIGHTGLOBAL: Flight Fleet Forecast's engine outlook
02 Nov 2016
The 2016 Flight Fleet Forecast predicts the delivery of 42,800 new commercial passenger and freighter aircraft over the next 20 years. This drives a market for 86,500 installed engine deliveries, with the fleet in service growing from just over 60,000 engines today to 103,000 in 2035. The aerospace market is currently in the middle of introducing a significant number of new and re-engined aircraft programmes, with a consequent generational shift from well-established engine types to new families, which has a major impact on the engine aftermarket.
