Market Analysis

Entrepreneurs who are considering a startup airline launch are wise to study the commercial aviation market. Two comprehensive publications are very useful in providing a detailed analysis of traffic growth, regional trends, and airplane requirements. Both are produced by Boeing and highly regarded throughout the industry.

Current Market Outlook

The annually-released Current Market Outlook is a comprehensive analysis of the commercial aviation market. It examines current trends, and projects air travel growth and passenger airplane requirements over the next 20 years. The CMO also discusses economic issues in air travel and the market forces which affect the industry. An analysis of demand by region shows the effect of varying traffic growth rates and airplane size requirements around the world.

Data sources include the Air Cargo Management Group, Air Transport Association, Association of Asia-Pacific Airlines, Association of European Airlines, Boeing Foreign Trade Database, Global Insight, International Air Transport Association, International Civil Aviation Organization, and U.S. Department of Transportation Form 41.
