Commercial aircraft market to focus on digital solutions, leasing post-COVID-19

Frost & Sullivan has announced that recent analysis finds Post-pandemic Growth Opportunity Analysis of the Global Commercial Aircraft Market, the company said.

Frost & Sullivan present updates to the 2020 outlook and growth opportunities for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the supply chain, and aftermarket suppliers.

Under the conservative forecast scenario, the market is estimated to witness a dramatic drop in revenues, reaching USD 149.24 billion in 2020 and garnering a revenue of USD 271.67 billion by 2025. However, the aspirational forecast scenario reflects a faster rebound, estimating that the market could hit USD 411.63 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2%.

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the globe, impacting every industry in every country. Few other industries have been disrupted to the magnitude of the global commercial aerospace market.

Airbus and Boeing each had strong order books stretching into the late 2020s, and production had been ramped up to fill orders. This expected reduction in backlog will exceed missed deliveries in the short term. Further, the lessor structure of purchasing aircraft will be adjusted due to COVID-19. In this context, some aerospace companies, especially suppliers, will be positioned to experience extreme growth as some competitors may cease to exist.

Despite looming challenges, the study identifies growth opportunities directly related to the current disrupting crisis for aerospace segments:

-Aerospace companies should invest in digital platforms for every aspect of aircraft production as customers look for turnkey solutions.
-Market players can leverage emerging digital technologies such as blockchain to help comply with regulator-mandated traceability requirements of many aerospace digital services.
-Aftermarket suppliers, OEMs, and airlines need to continue investing in the research and development of technologies such as additive manufacturing, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
-Premature and the overabundance of lease returns offer opportunities for OEMs, airlines, suppliers, and the aftermarket.
-Post-pandemic Growth Opportunity Analysis of the Global Commercial Aircraft Market is the latest addition to Frost & Sullivan´s Aerospace research and analyses available through the Frost & Sullivan Leadership Council, which helps organizations identify a continuous flow of growth opportunities to succeed in an unpredictable future.
