As the year-end approaches, we decided to see what an aircraft product forecast out to 2035 might look like for the key OEMs. While this is very long term, given the stage we are at in the current order/delivery cycle, with numerous new aircraft just entering or soon to enter service. It is a good time to peek out to the future, and determine when new programs are likely to enter the market.
The chart below lists programs that we know of, and when they might firm up and enter the market as viable offerings. We’ve dotted the time frame when we believe significant changes are likely to occur. Ours is an industry in which you must think eight or more years ahead when it comes to programs – it takes a while to determine if a product is viable, then an increasing window of time to bring that product to market.
