Over the five years to 2015, the Global Commercial Aircraft Manufacturing industry has managed to fly through the turbulence of the global economic slowdown and reach new altitudes. Industry operators design, manufacture, overhaul and rebuild planes, helicopters, aircraft engines and various aircraft components and subsystems for the commercial and civil markets. While the global economic downturn caused demand for industry products to decline into 2010, the industry was able to recover relatively fast. In particular, the scale of the decline was greatly mitigated by long lead times in aircraft manufacturing.
The Global Commercial Aircraft Manufacturing industry produces complete civil aircraft, including aerospace engines, propulsion units, auxiliary equipment and parts. Prototypes of aerospace products, aircraft conversions and complete aircraft or propulsion systems overhaul and rebuilding are also included. Military aircraft manufacturing and related services are not included in this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
