Key Market Trends

Helicopters Segment to Experience the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

Helicopters segment of the market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in helicopters segment is fueled by the fleet expansion as well as the replacement plans of the helicopter operators in the region. Also, the development of new models of helicopters in specific to the business aviation and VIP transportation is expected to gain demand from the corporate companies and private helicopter operators in the region. For instance, Airbus Helicopters received the first order from an undisclosed customer in Brazil for one H160 for private and business aviation operations in April 2018. The aforementioned factors are leading to the growth of helicopters segment during the forecast period.

Brazil held the Highest Market Share in 2018

Brazil currently has the highest market share in the Latin America general aviation market. Brazil is one of the booming markets in the aviation industry with the country acting as the major hub for general aviation (business jet and helicopters majorly). The country has witnessed a significant growth of agricultural aviation fleet in the past few years. There were 2,115 aircraft in the agricultural aviation fleet of Brazil in 2017 with overall general aviation fleet being 15,800 aircraft. The growth in the number of charter operators and increasing infrastructure of general aviation will propel the growth of the market. In early 2019, Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) opened a new general aviation terminal with a handling capacity of 39 executive jets and 200 passengers per hour. With a lot of potential for the development of general aviation infrastructure, the market is poised to grow during the forecast period.
