Tuesday 18 August 2015, AmsterdamThe world market for commercial aircraft leasing is estimated to reach $35.7bn in 2015. The global market will record positive growth over the next decade, in part due to continued demand from the air travel market. Moreover, the airlines are currently acquiring (by both operating and financial leasing) more next generation aircraft. This is to meet the continuously improving industry standards and fuel efficiency objectives. As the macro and micro-economic factors in the traditionally mature markets remain somewhat uncertain in broad-terms, it is the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East that will generate the most significant demand for leased aircraft.
