Gaining market share in the growth markets of Asia-Pacific is shaping up to be a key battle for the next 20 years, according to Flightglobal's Commercial Fleet Forecast.

Available now, the second edition of the forecast establishes how Asia continues to drive demand, with China accounting for 41% of the world's widebody fleet by 2031, up from 36% today. Asia is also due to account for almost half of narrowbody deliveries over the next 20 years.

This information, plus so much more, is included in this 2012-H1 edition of the Commercial Fleet Forecast report.

Updated twice a year, the Commercial Fleet forecast is a set of 20-year predictions which are robustly tested and truly independent. In partnership with Clive Lewis of the Achieving the Difference marketing practice, the report now covers all the latest types of aircraft including the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 737 Max.

Clive brings with him decades of forecasting experience within the commercial aerospace sector. Working together with the Flightglobal Insight research team, he has painstakingly combined Flightglobal's extensive data resource with his expertise in developing computer-based forecasting tools.
