New Aircraft Forecast for China


Boeing has raised its 20-year outlook for commercial aircraft in China. The latest aircraft forecast for the country projects demand for 7,240 new aircraft, 6.3% more than the company predicted in its last new aircraft forecast for China in 2016.

Boeing envisages a need for 5,420 new single-aisle aircraft and 1,670 widebody aircraft through to 2036, with the growth of low-cost airlines and business travel demand driving these sales.

Of the 1,670 widebodies, the company predicts most (970) will be aircraft with 200-300 seats. Larger widebodies with more than 300 seats will account for 550 aircraft, it believes, with 150 very large widebodies of the 747-8’s size category being sold to the freighter market.

Worldwide, Boeing projects a need for 41,030 new commercial aircraft over the next 20 years.
