Trends in aviation industry


Published on

Aviation includes all non-scheduled civil flying, both private and commercial. General aviation may include business flights, air charter, private aviation, flight training, ballooning, parachuting, gliding, hang gliding, aerial photography, foot-launched powered hang gliders, air ambulance, crop dusting, charter flights, traffic reporting, police air patrols and forest fire fighting.

  3. 3. The aviation industry encapsulates thedevelopment, operation and management of aircrafts. While thecommon perception about the sector is that it‟s only about pilots andairhostesses, there are numerous other, equally significant joboptions that the industry cannot function without; from in-flighttrainers and aircraft maintenance engineers to baggage handlers andreservations agents. Research indicates the global aviation industry is poised togrow at a healthy 5.6% CAGR (compound average growth rate)over the next 15 years. While major conventional mature marketssuch as the US and Europe will witness a significant fall in marketshare from 61% to 52%, emerging markets, such as India, Chinaand the Middle East, offer a great growth potential.
  4. 4. Trends in Aviation Industry Compared to other transport modes like road transport, trains orshipping the traffic increase in civil aviation is a relatively recentphenomenon. Passenger air transport became relevant around 1940.Following aspects contribute to the trends in aviation industry.  The trend in passenger numbers and total flights  The trend in engine development and efficiency  The trend in understanding impacts of aviation on atmosphere and climate
  5. 5. 1.The trend in passenger numbers and total flights Civil aviation for widespread transport of citizens didnot really start before the second world war. Before, aircraftswere mainly constructed for military purposes. After thewar, many qualified pilots were available and still many planessuitable for transport of passengers as “left over” from the waras well. This caused a first boom in civil aviation, at thebeginning in particular in the United States. Soon, it became acommon trend in all industrialized countries in the world.
  6. 6. The following pictures give an impression, howquickly passenger planes with high capacity aredeveloped in the world.
  7. 7. The Boeing 247 was a civil aircraft produced in the United States since 1933. Besides from 3 staff members it could transport 10 passengers.The Junkers 90 was available inGermany since 1938. Designedfor 40 passenger it was one ofthe largest passenger aircraftsbefore the war but neverproduced in large numbers.
  8. 8. The Douglas C54 Skymaster / DC-4 has been produced since 1942 in the United States for 30- 40 passengers. It became together with the Douglas DC-3 famous as “Rosinenbomber” during the blockade of Berlin from June 1948 to May 1949.10 years later: The DouglasDC 7 (produced 1952 – 1958)was the biggest propelleraircraft with space for 100passengers and the last majorpiston engine poweredplane, coming just a few yearsbefore the advent of jetaircraft.
  9. 9. 2. The trend in engine development and efficiency Most passenger aircrafts use nowadays jet engines(turbojets and turbofans) which dominate civil aviation since the1960s. While airlines have been for some decades under theauthority of the respective states, latest with the internationalliberation of the markets the consumption of fuel became animportant factor in the competition. Therefore, not only environmental but also economicinterests drive the permanent improvements of engineefficiency. However, these improvements never compensatedfor the increase in passenger kilometers flown and therefore fueldemand and carbon dioxide emissions.
  10. 10. 3. The trend in understanding impacts of aviation on atmosphere and climate In the late 1960s aircraft engineers thought about theconstruction of a supersonic aircraft fleet. At this time theunderstanding of atmospheric processes was sufficiently advanced inorder to see risks in such plans. Scientists discussed the potentialimpact on the ozone layer, which raised strong concerns, before awider development of the technology was seriously approached. Since the supersonic fleet was never developed, also fortechnical and economic reasons, attention of science shifted in the1990 more to ozone development in the upper troposphere(here, ozone is a strong greenhouse gas) und greenhouse effects ingeneral. Besides from easier to estimate direct carbon dioxideemissions, in particular the impacts of condensations trail andpotentially developing cirrus clouds have been of special interest.
