The Air Transportation of Freight industry grew 8.2% annually over the past five years to $7.68 billion in 2014. Over that period, the volume of freight moved increased from 4.46 million tons annually to 5.73 million tons, reflecting annualized growth of 5.1%.
In the aftermath of the global financial crisis of 2009, the industry rebounded with strong 26.4% growth in freight transportation volumes in 2010. Since 2011, however, air freight transporters have been negatively affected by the weakened global economy and China's own economic slowdown. Growth in alternative transportation modes has also increased external competition for industry operators.
The Air Transportation of Freight industry in China operates aircraft for the international and domestic transportation of freight.
