Demand for business aircraft finance set to increase

Posted 12 October 2017 · Add Comment

Over 77% of business aviation professionals predict an upswing in demand for business aviation finance over the next five years, with more than one in six of those expecting the increase to be “dramatic”.

Only 6% anticipate a fall in demand between now and 2022. The findings were revealed in research among business aviation professionals commissioned by Global Jet Capital, a global leader in financial solutions for corporate aircraft.

The main reason identified for the growing demand for finance is that there is a growing trend for potential buyers to use less of their own capital, a fact cited by 62% of the professionals interviewed.  Two in five (40%) respondents said the overall level of sales of business aircraft will grow resulting in increased demand for finance.

21% also pointed to the fact that operating leases are currently very attractively priced.

Key findings include:

57% of the business aviation professionals think the overall amount of finance made available to this market will increase in the coming year.  25% said this was because more specialist lenders have recently come into the market, while 34% expect to see more specialist lenders entering the sector in the future.  33% think traditional lenders will want to increase their exposure to the business aviation market.

32% of those interviewed believe that the growing size of the business aviation market over the next twelve months will naturally lead to an increase in the amount of finance available.

51% of the study’s respondents think that finance rates will increase between now and 2020.  Only 21% believe they will stay the same as today, while 18% think they will decrease.
