Manufacturers to Deliver More Than 21,000 Aircraft In Next Decade

Global Fleet Forecast - 2016 to 2026

Fueling the 3.4% annual growth rate of the global fleet, Oliver Wyman forecasts the delivery of 20,807 new passenger aircraft and 286 new cargo aircraft over the next ten years, and the retirement of 10,377 passenger aircraft and 825 cargo aircraft over the same period. In other words, 53% of the new deliveries over the forecast period are replacement aircraft while 47% are for growth. In addition to deliveries of new aircraft and the retirement of current in-service aircraft, the 665 passenger to freighter conversions of current in-service aircraft will play an integral role in the size and growth of the global cargo fleet.

The systematic elimination and replacement of older aircraft with new technology aircraft will drive significant change in the business for airlines and MROs.
