Commercial Aircraft Leasing - Industry Market Research Report

Commercial Aircraft Leasing

The Commercial Aircraft Leasing industry has fluctuated over the past five years. While rising demand for aircraft leases from downstream markets supported revenue early in the period, higher borrowing costs in the latter half of the period inhibited companies in downstream airline and logistics markets from financing new aircraft leases. In addition, rising crude oil prices since 2016 have eroded airline profitability, restricting the ability of airlines to service aircraft lease payments. During the outlook period, industry revenue growth is expected to decelerate, as rising borrowing costs and fuel costs hinder demand from downstream markets. Large industry operators are anticipated to continue a variety of strategic acquisitions to reduce competition, increase market share, and use operational synergies to increase profitability.

This industry leases commercial aircraft to scheduled airlines and to other commercial carriers. The carrier (lessee) pays the industry operator (lessor) for use of the aircraft over a given time period, typically a few years. This industry does not lease noncommercial aircraft, such as military helicopters or recreational jets.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
