Market Dynamics

Air freight has remained an indispensable tool for the transport of time sensitive commodities, like perishables; high-value, low-weight goods, including consumer electronics; high-fashion apparel; pharmaceuticals; industrial machinery; and high-value intermediate goods such as auto parts.

The APAC region holds the highest market share with more than 40% of the total market; China leads the way with 15% of the total market share and is expected to be top for years to come. The more mature markets, like North America and Europe have started to recover after the global economic meltdown and are showing promising signs of growth.

The rising fuel prices has a complex effect on this market, air transport has become more expensive with the rising fuel prices, however, it is also driving a need for more efficient planes which has created a market for advanced cargo only flights. Of the current global cargo fleet 61% has been converted from old passenger flights. However, this is changing gradually and will have an impact on the market as The performance, efficiency, and reliability of new, purpose-built freighters outweigh the lower purchase prices for converted large freighters, especially for intercontinental operations, where high cargo density, larger payloads, and extended range are crucial
