Key highlights

  • The air freight sector is defined as consisting of revenues generated from freight transportation by air.
  • The North American air freight sector had total revenues of $18,221.2m in 2017, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3% between 2013 and 2017.
  • The international segment had the highest volume in the US air freight sector in 2017, with total sales of 27,140.2 million FTK, equivalent to 61.1% of the sector's overall volume.
  • US exports rose by 5.6% in 2017 which has encouraged many who feared the US economy to worsen under the leadership of its new President. Nevertheless despite the sector expected to continue growing strongly in the coming years a potential trade war with China and a pull-out from the North American Free Trade organization can do much to damage growth in US trade. A decrease in trade would inevitably result in reduced demand for air freight.
