Commercial Aircraft Finance Market Outlook 2023


The Boeing Commercial Aircraft Finance Market Outlook (CAFMO) is our annual review of aircraft financing trends over the past year, along with our view on the market environment ahead.

The 2023 CAFMO features a forecast for potential aircraft delivery financing outcomes for the year, reinstated on the back of favorable data following several years of industry recovery. While uncertainties in the geopolitical and economic environment prevent us from providing a more precise forecast, the 2023 CAFMO confirms that a number of the financing platforms are well-placed to support the expected growth in aircraft deliveries this year. Nevertheless, Boeing Customer Finance endeavors to ensure that support is readily available to our customers for end-to-end delivery financing across all geographies.

Export credit agencies

Export credit agencies (ECAs) supported over 4% of Boeing deliveries in 2022. ECAs are an important financing alternative for our customers, especially in markets where commercial lending may face challenges. We expect ECA-backed financing to coincide with the resumption of deliveries to recovering regions. Boeing works with ECAs worldwide.


Other Commercial Solutions

The aircraft finance industry’s proven ability to innovate, adapt and execute solutions has proliferated a host of product offerings to fill the needs of customers. These sources of financing have been validated and are well-positioned to capitalize on increased deliveries.



Boeing Capital created the Commercial Aircraft Finance Market Outlook (CAFMO) to provide an analysis of the sources of financing for new commercial airplane deliveries (for aircraft 90 seats or above).
