Aviation Asset Management Market Analysis

Aviation Asset Management Market Size By Aircraft Type

Based on type, the narrow body aircraft segment is anticipated to exhibit over 6% CAGR during the study period and record a sizeable valuation by 2030. The segment growth can be credited to the surging air traffic and the booming domestic air travel industry across emerging economies. The increasing demand for Low-Cost Carrier (LCC), diminishing air travel expenses, and the rapid proliferation of business and medical tourism will boost the adoption of aviation asset management solutions for narrow body aircraft in the forthcoming years.

In terms of purchase type, the finance lease segment is set to expand at over 5% CAGR over the forecast period. Finance lease purchases enable airlines to use newer aircraft with higher specifications than they could actually buy without involving any large upfront investment. Leasing companies have been putting in efforts to introduce flexible payment structures tailored to match the business's cash flow. This, in tandem with the growing demand for Asset-Backed Securitization (ABS) across the commercial aircraft industry will stimulate the aviation asset management market outlook.

Aviation Asset Management Market Size By Service

With regard to services, leasing service segment is poised to register significant growth and surpass USD 140 billion by 2030. Leasing services offer a set of benefits, such as capacity flexibility, financial liquidity, rapid expansion, reduced maintenance costs, and fleet consistency.

Looking at this trend, the airline operators across the globe have been focusing on increasing their fleet size. The ease of financial leasing and acquisition of new aircraft to aid the expanding air traffic will create new growth prospects for the aviation asset management market in the coming years.
