The rising affluence of air travel on account of rising per capita income of the global population, growing investments in the aviation infrastructure, increasing initiatives to connect outer cities with prime aviation hubs, and the rising demand for planes from the commercial and military & defense sector is anticipated to drive the growth of the airplane manufacturing industry. Furthermore, the growing focus on environmental pollution along with the increasing need to improve fuel efficiency is promoting the growth of the industry. The growing technological developments in order to reduce the manufacturing cost and to improve fuel efficiency are anticipated to offer huge industry growth opportunities.

The spread of the COVID-19 reflects the downfall in the aircraft manufacturing market growth because of the significant disruptions in the supply chain and the slowdown in manufacturing activities. The imposed trade barriers and international border closures have disrupted the entire manufacturing process. These disruptions in the supply chain, lockdown measures, and limited consumer and corporate spending are anticipated to hamper demand for airplane manufacturing. Further, the reduction in flight activity is estimated to hinder the growth of the industry. However, the need for an aircraft manufacturing market is projected to bounce back as governments across nations are lifting lockdown restrictions.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The primary factors driving the growth of the industry include the increasing demand for airplanes from commercial and military & defense sectors. For instance, in 2020, Airbus has delivered over 484 narrow-body commercial aircraft while Boeing has delivered over 43. Further, these companies have a large number of existing order backlogs.

By November 2021, Boeing reported a backlog of 4,210 commercial aircraft manufacturing, while Airbus reported a backlog of 7,036. This huge demand for planes from the commercial sector is anticipated to drive the growth of the airplane manufacturing market. Furthermore, the increasing passenger traffic globally is estimated to drive growth. Moreover, the advancement in technology is projected to offer substantial growth opportunities.

For instance, ML (Machine Learning) techniques such as AI (Artificial Intelligence) are being utilized by airplane manufacturers in order to improve safety, quality, and efficiency. The ML algorithms gather the data and analyze it to make better decisions. These technological innovations help in the reduction of manufacturing costs while improving the performance of airplanes. Additionally, the growing use of cargo airplanes by the e-commerce industry is anticipated to drive the growth of the industry.
