Ft. Lauderdale, May 2016: Referring to Teal’s latest forecast, the global business aircraft market remains dynamic with substantial opportunities for suppliers and customers. Aircraft variants and their associated engines are designed to meet the needs of demanding customers that expect tremendous value for their money. “Nevertheless, right now it’s difficult to be bullish!” says Richard Aboulafia, Teal Group’s Vice President of Analysis.

Teal Group’s Briefing takes a comprehensive view of the market. First, Teal looks at the market and where it is headed. Second is an assessment of the manufacturers and new product development prospects. Third is the detailed forecast, including assumptions and segment details. Finally, there’s a quantitative market forecast, which covers all turbofan and turboprop business aircraft, and the associated engines.

The market forecast was released at NAFA’s (National Aircraft Finance Association) 45th annual conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. NAFA holds an Annual Meeting every spring to give members an opportunity to learn about current industry trends.

For the next 10 years (2016 – 2026), Teal’s 26thBusiness Jet Forecast predicts 8,153 bizjet deliveries worth US$247.5 bn (in 2016 $). In addition, Teal expects 296 Jetliners worth US$ 26 bn and 3,002 turboprops worth US$ 18,8 bn to be delivered to the international  business aviation community. The total of US$ 292,3 bn corresponds with deliveries worth $211.7 bn between 2005 and 2014.

Despite the presently disappointing market situation as discussed at EBACE in Geneva, Teal believes still in the long term growth story of business aviation. Richard Aboulafia: ” We are not in a free fall like 2008. Given global economic and political events, recent market trends are understandable. Our numbers are probably conservative, but right now it’s difficult to be bullish.”
