Untapped potential in developing economies

From the last decade, some developing nations mainly from the Asia-Pacific region have witnessed growing trade activities, high performing GDP, increasing per capita income. This is anticipated to support the sales of very light jets. India, China, Nigeria, and Malaysia have the potential market for very light jets. However, the infrastructure of these countries is not suitable for operations of very light jets. Increasing aviation passenger traffic and growing inclination toward private aviation solution are expected to create a demand for infrastructural projects across these nations. Growing aviation infrastructural projects and increasing air passenger traffic are estimated to create an opportunity for the very light jet market in developing regions during the forecast period.

COVID-19 impact analysis

During COVID-19, the aviation industry witnessed high financial losses and significant uncertainties in business operations as majority of the governments restricted international commute to control the spread of the virus. Moreover, commute restriction has been imposed across the globe, which also limits the usage of aviation medium for commute. Savior impact was witnessed in civil aviation front in 2020 and it is expected to continue in 2021. For the very light jet market, 2020 was witnessed as a negative performing year, owing to the negative demand and supply outlook from COVID-19 crisis restrictions and supply chain disruptions. Market participants of very light jet are following certain approaches to manage the operations by slashed budgets, extended equipment lifecycles, decreased staff sizes, and reduced salaries in the short term to overcome financial downturn.
