Commercial Market Outlook


By any measure, the commercial aviation sector is soaring. More people are taking to the air than ever before, as our industry has now recorded eight straight years of steady and above-trend growth.

A dedicated team here at Boeing pores over reams of economic, airline, travel, and fleet data annually to project new airplane demand during the next 20 years. After more than 55 years of publishing, The Boeing Commercial Market Outlook remains the industry standard as one of the longest-published and most accurate forecasts in commercial aviation.

This year we increased the interactive data visualizations to provide even more insight and context to our forecast. You will find enhanced detail on fleet and traffic with additional examination of each region of the world.
