The 2016 Current Aircraft Finance Market Outlook: www.boeingcapital.com/CAFMO
Boeing says airlines and lessors will continue to have access to efficient funding at attractive pricing throughout 2016 as new participants enter the aircraft financing industry and current participants innovate and provide more options.
The eighth annual Boeing Current Aircraft Finance Market Outlook, released on 22 January, forecasts the sources of financing for new commercial airplane deliveries in the coming year and the industry’s overall delivery financing requirements for the next five years.
Key elements of the 2016 finance market outlook include:
- The trend of lessors selling all or part of their portfolios to participants in the capital markets to create capacity for new acquisitions and opportunities for future growth should continue, thanks to ongoing innovation within the leasing industry.
- Lessors are expected to support about 40 percent of all deliveries, securing most of their leverage through the capital markets.
- Capital markets and banks should account for approximately two-thirds of delivery funding.
- Commercial bank debt will continue to play a vital role in aircraft finance, but tighter global regulations and U.S. dollar pressures (in certain markets) may constrain the sector’s volume.
- Export credit usage should continue at historically low levels, reflecting the current strength of commercial markets.
