Global Aircraft Leasing Market Forecast and Trends
The Global Aircraft Leasing market is projected to reach the valuation of USD 473.6 million by the year 2026 by growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period 2020-2026. The aircraft leasing market is expanding its foothold with the rise in aircraft operators and the companies that, in recent years, are allowing aircraft lease services.
In the past few years, numerous airline companies have substituted aircraft leasing for their operations to reduce the financial burden and to surge the number of aircraft. Due to these reasons, the aircraft leasing market has grown extensively.
Additionally, another prime reason for the market's growth is the commercial banks that are the prime source of aircraft financing that are helping the leasing companies to gain considerable momentum to organize themselves into the aircraft leasing market. These are the prime factors that are positively influencing the market for aircraft leasing at the global level and are expected to increase at a rapid pace to gain more valuation during its projected period.
At the same time, wet-leasing aircraft are favored more to be acquired for a short period of time, and for this, the market is gaining substantial demand.
Global Aircraft Leasing Market: Overview
Aircraft lease is a contractual arrangement availed to airlines and other aircraft operators (lessees) by leasing companies (lessors). Its main advantage is to lessen the financial burden on the airlines' balance sheet while procuring new aircraft or adjust capacity over shorter terms.
The structure of a lease agreement gives specific obligations, some of which are a combination of a security deposit and a monthly lease rate based on the aircraft value and its depreciation schedule. To compensate the risk involved, the lease rate should reflect the sum of all risks associated with the multiple business layers, along with the macroeconomic aspect. There is a practice of increasing the security deposit depending on the legal and operational considerations of the specific country and lessee.
Some problems faced by lessees in developing countries will include the poor historical past performance of local airlines, inexistent credit rating, difficulties in exporting hard currencies back to lessors or high-interest rates, and currency mismatch between the income and its liabilities (airfare sales and lease payment). Legal aspects and cost of recovering and remarketing the asset should the lessee default will also impact the deposit amount and rent required by lessors to compensate for those factors.
Provides flexibility for aircraft operations
Aviation works in a highly regulated business environment of which compliance with its regulations is of paramount importance. Maintenance is vital to safety, and all other activities from financing to catering are essential to the final consumer product, a contract of carriage sold as a flight ticket. While numerous older airlines were government-owned at some point, this has shifted through liberalization dramatically, especially in the mature markets (North America and Europe). In emerging economies, the role of government-controlled airlines is still significant and even dominant in the fast-growing Middle East regions.
Increasing Commercial Aircraft Leasing
Aircraft leasing for commercial purposes is increasing day by day as more people prefer to travel by airplane than any other mode of transportation. With the value of the commercial leased aircraft asset portfolio projected to hit USD 502 billion by 2024, commercial aircraft leasing is undoubtedly a standard option for operators seeming to expand their fleets to meet growing traffic demands. These operators traditionally purchased their planes, but now are increasingly turning to operate leases instead. It's a gentle balance of determining which aircraft will maintain their value and maintaining the risks of ownership.
Aircraft leasing cost is very high, and thus for small airlines, it is not feasible to afford high costs due to economic issues. The total leasing cost includes not only financing rates but also the insurance costs are also included; these costs can be higher than for buying.
Global Aircraft Leasing Market: Leasing Type
Based on leasing type, the global aircraft leasing market segmented into Wet leasing and Dry leasing. Wet leasing is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. As in Wet Lease, ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) is issued by the lessor. Usually, the leasing term ranges from one month to two years, and the lessor controls the aircraft's operating authority.
Whereas in Dry leasing, the aircraft is provided by the aircraft owner/lessor (the aircraft operator or the airline). The Lease does not provide crew, insurance, fuel, maintenance, or support equipment. Dry leasing is used for a longer period of time.
