Embraer sees market demand for 6,400 new deliveries in 70-130+ seat segment

Posted 21 June 2017 · Add Comment

According to the latest Market Outlook, Embraer projects a steady market demand for 6,400 new jets in the 70-130+ seat capacity category (2,280 units in the 70-90 seat segment and 4,120 units in the 90-130+ seat segment), worth USD 300 billion, by 2036.


The 70-130+ seat jet world fleet-in-service will increase from 2,700 aircraft in 2016 to 6,710 by 2036, the fastest growing segment among all aircraft seat capacities. Market growth will drive 63% of total demand and the remaining 37% will be delivered to replace ageing aircraft.

70-130+ Seat Jet Deliveries by Region


Region    Deliveries    Share


North America    2,020    32%
Asia Pacific    1,710    27%
Europe    1,150    18%
Latin America    690    11%
CIS    390    6%
Africa    220    3%
Middle East    220    3%
World (2017-2036)    6,400     

 

Whilst region-specific outlooks vary considerably, the underlying drivers to sustain the projected market demand for jets in the 70-130+ seat capacity category remain intact, from feeding complex bank structures at major hubs to pioneering new markets and complement narrow-body aircraft operation. 

Fleet optimisation is critical in the vicissitudes of business cycles, and a rationalized fleet does not necessarily signify an optimised one. Right-sized aircraft call for a new smarter approach. Greater control in matching aircraft capacity to market demand prevents the erosion of unit revenues and provides competitive cost structure. 

The E195-E2, for example, will provide an attractive proposition with much lower trip costs and comparable seat-mile costs to than its large narrow-body counterparts, while combining growth and higher returns with the opportunity to increase unit revenue with a right-sized aircraft.

“The airline industry is notoriously known for its boom and bust cycles. Better seat inventory control allows a continuous search for higher profits and efficiency. The ability to shift back towards revenue unit growth, instead of aggressive capacity expansion, is crucial”, said John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

Jets in the 70-130+ seat capacity category are one of the main pillars of business sustainability. As the most efficient single-aisle family of aircraft, the E-Jets E2 is perfectly positioned to keep Embraer as the market leader in the segment and maximize profitability for both airlines and leasing companies.
