The global business jet market size was USD 24.21 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with business jets witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a huge decline of -12.1% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 25.87 billion in 2021 to USD 36.94 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 5.22% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

According to JetNet IQ, the global market forecast foretells up to 7,404 new jet deliveries over the upcoming decade with a valuation of up to USD 236 billion. However, till September 2020, segmental trajectories of brand new and pre-owned jets have grown divergent. Pre-owned jet transactions have been minimally impacted than new jet deliveries, while both segments' year-on-year sale volumes have shown a declining trend. The total rebound (up to 85% of 2019 levels) of the global market is anticipated to be achieved by mid-2021. According to Honeywell Aerospace, the future purchase behavior of 80% of customers has not been impacted. The remaining customers have shown the short-term future purchase restrained by less than 1%.

Short-term Impact amid COVID-19 on the Private Jets Market is Expected to Recover By Mid-2021

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed the market dynamics for the forecast period, as air travel demand has nosedived since the coronavirus outbreak and its resurgence of the second wave worldwide. To overcome the negative effects of this pandemic, various companies are focusing on the following factors:

  • The ongoing pandemic has not impacted business aviation more than commercial aviation, as it has made a speedy recovery by the end of 2020 and continues to do so in 2021. According to Honeywell Aerospace's research study of private jet owners and operators, around 80% of respondents have conveyed that there is no impact on their future purchase plans and their revenue, while approx. 20% of the respondents have mentioned that there is a short-term impact on their near future purchases, but not the long-term purchase plans.

  • Governments and their region groupings (G7, Quad, and others) worldwide have articulated the solution for supply chain management by considering their problems during the pandemic. For instance, Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD/QSD) has considered establishing an alternative supply chain process in the wake of trade disruptions worldwide.

  • Companies are looking forward to expanding the market for executive jets, sleeking their operational processes, and emphasizing inventory management to overwhelm the impact of the coronavirus on their businesses. For instance, in February 2021, Bombardier announced that it would lay off around 1600 workers for the loss adjustment owing to the declining demand in the aviation industry and halt of the production of Learjet 75 private jets.

  • Companies would have to design new safety norms to maintain social distancing even after COVID has subsided. For instance, private jet operators with fixed-based operators (FBO) such as JSX Air, a subsidiary of JetSuiteX Inc., are strictly following air travel guidelines, such as social distancing on their private jet flights amid the ongoing pandemic.

  • Companies should implement the Just-In-Time concept to procure and deliver private jets to end-users. For instance, private jets operators, such as SkyJet, Surf Air, Blue Star Jets, Beacon, PrivateFly, and Victor, are playing a crucial role in the private jets market.

Increasing Sizes of Aging Fleet to Fuel the Market Growth

According to a JetNet IQ study, the average age of executive jets worldwide as of March 2020 was 18.2 years. Private jets of the ultra-long range are the youngest amongst the whole business aviation fleet. In the type of executive jets, heavy jets have had many maintenance, repairs, and overhaul (MRO) operations in the past few years. These aircraft can be replaced by next-generation executive jets in the upcoming years. Moreover, private firms and original equipment manufacturers (O.E.M.s) are focusing on developing technologically advanced small private jets for on-demand service applications.


Uncertainty of Orders May Restrain the Growth of Market 

In May 2020, the Canadian jet manufacturer Bombardier announced its shutdown of manufacturing facilities due to the loss of production caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The OEM is looking forward to continuing with the manufacturing of executive aircraft in the upcoming years.

Moreover, disruptions in the supply chain have largely impacted sales and production activities worldwide. Companies are looking forward to incorporating the cost-effective e-platform to overcome the impact of the pandemic in the near future. Furthermore, the unscheduled orders from end-users, such as private players and OEMs, have hampered the market growth.
