    Mumbai: Boeing projects a demand for 1,740 new airplanes, valued at $240 billion, over the next 20 years in India.

    The company released its annual India Current Market Outlook (CMO)  in Mumbai, forecasting the South Asia region will have among the highest traffic growth around the world at 8.6 percent.

    “Over the next 20 years, Boeing forecasts India will need 1,740 new airplanes worth $240 billion,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “India’s economy and the country’s potential for air travel growth – both for leisure and business – continues to be strong and we remain confident in the Indian commercial aerospace market.”

    According to Boeing statement , the largest demand from airlines in India will be for single-aisle airplanes such as the Next-Generation 737 and new 737 MAX, while twin-aisle airplane demand, such as the 777 and 787 Dreamliner families will also continue. The number of low cost carriers is projected to grow to more than 30 percent of the total Indian market.

    The Next-Generation 737’s market success has been confirmed by investors who consistently rank it as the most preferred single-aisle airplane due to its wide market base, superior performance efficiency and lowest operating costs in its class. The 737 MAX will build on the strengths of today’s Next-Generation 737 by incorporating the latest-technology to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

    The 777 family provides the most payload and range capability and growth potential in the medium-sized airplane category — all with low operating costs. Building on the passenger-preferred and market-leading 777 family of airplanes, the 777X family includes the 777-8X and the 777-9X, both designed to respond to market needs and customer preferences.

    The 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes that brings big-jet ranges and speed to the middle of the market. Boeing designed the 787 family with superior fuel efficiency, which allows airlines to profitably open new routes to fly people directly where they’d like to go in exceptional comfort. Since entering service in 2011, the 787 family has opened more than 50 new nonstop routes around the world.

    Boeing projects a worldwide demand for 38,050 new airplanes over the next 20 years, with India carriers needing more than 4.5 percent of the total global demand during the forecast period.

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
