The 2017 Current Aircraft Finance Market Outlook projects another year of steady performance and stable volume from the primary sources of aircraft financing, with strong aviation industry fundamentals driving new financier and investor participation and competitive pricing for buyers of large commercial aircraft.
While the aircraft financing environment continues to be healthy overall, there are some developments Boeing is closely monitoring. These include tighter global bank regulations, lingering uncertainty around export credit in the United States and Europe, and a heightened risk of illiquidity due to regulatory reform and central banks’ remaining capacity to stimulate.
Despite some emerging watch items, the aircraft finance industry is in a healthy state, with ample liquidity, a wide diversity of funding options, and an overall positive outlook for 2017, barring an exogenous shock to the global financial system or the airline industry.
Working together, we can translate this forecast into profitable business for all market constituents.
