Market Overview

An aircraft lease is a legal agreement between two parties, typically a lessor and a lessee. The lessor agrees to provide the aircraft to the lessee for a specified period of time in exchange for periodic payments known as lease payments. Airlines sometimes lease planes rather than purchase them. The leasing company uses its capital to purchase the aircraft and rents it to the operator in exchange for a monthly or annual fee for its use. Ownership is held by the tenant. As previously stated, the airline pays a fixed monthly or annual rent to use the jet under its own brand and, in most cases, in its own color. There are five major advantages to leasing an aircraft rather than purchasing one. These include financial liquidity, capacity flexibility, rapid expansion, fleet consistency, and lower maintenance costs. Under its initial terms, leasing enables airlines to reduce their debt. This promotes better cash flow and financial agility. Airlines and cargo operators lease aircraft from other airlines or leasing companies for two primary reasons: to operate the aircraft without incurring the financial burden of purchasing them, and to provide a temporary increase in capacity. The growing popularity of low-cost airlines is a major factor driving the aircraft leasing market forward.

Driving Factors

The increasing demand for air travel as disposable incomes rise, the opening of new routes, and the introduction of low-cost carriers are all key drivers of global commercial aircraft leasing market growth. Furthermore, rising demand for aircraft leasing services among airlines seeking to reduce operating costs is expected to drive market growth. Furthermore, the need to reduce operational costs and the growing demand for environmentally friendly aircraft are expected to open up new market opportunities. Aviation has truly been the most dependable and safest mode of transportation in the world today. Airplanes take off all over the world at a rate of approximately 400 departures per hour, and this is only for scheduled commercial flights. One of the market's concerns is the increase in passenger air traffic. The expanding airline industry and the emergence of new airlines around the world have resulted in an increase in aircraft leasing, as these new airlines prefer to lease aircraft rather than own them.

 

Restraining Factors

The lack of modern airport infrastructure poses a significant challenge for aircraft lessors, as newly leased aircraft must be located and stored in the proper location. The availability of efficient airports is one of the most important requirements for an investor or lessor looking to invest in the aircraft leasing business. Airport infrastructure, including the need for new aircraft, necessitates improvements and expansion of airfields.

 

Market Segmentation

The global commercial aircraft leasing market share is classified into aircraft type, leasing type, security type, and application

 

  • The narrow-body aircrafts segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period.   

Based on the aircraft type, the global commercial aircraft leasing market is categorized into narrow-body aircrafts, wide-body aircrafts, and regional aircrafts. Among these, the narrow-body aircrafts segment is expected to hold the largest share of the commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period. Narrow-body aircraft are the most common type of commercial aircraft, primarily used for short- to medium-range flights. These smaller aircraft typically have a single aisle configuration and limited passenger seating. They are used for flights lasting less than three hours and have a maximum seating capacity of 230 passengers. Narrow-body aircraft include the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 families.

 

  • The wet leasing segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period.   

Based on the leasing type, the global commercial aircraft leasing market is categorized into dry leasing and wet leasing. Among these, the wet leasing segment is expected to hold the largest share of the commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period. Wet leasing is a type of aircraft leasing in which the lessee obtains the right to use the aircraft as if it were their own, as well as the pilot and ground crew. In this case, the lessor not only provides the aircraft, but also handles all operational services such as maintenance, insurance, and crew hire. The wet leasing arrangement provides the lessee with immediate access to the aircraft and provisional coverage, regardless of their own certification status or commercial arrangements.

 

  • The non-asset backed security (non-ABS) segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period.   

Based on the security type, the global commercial aircraft leasing market is divided into asset-backed security (ABS) and non-asset backed security (non-ABS). Among this the non-asset backed security (non-ABS) segment is expected to grow at fastest pace in the commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period. Investors can obtain principal and interest payments on a variety of assets using asset-backed securities without having to generate them themselves. Owing to the small number of underlying assets at each security level, the likelihood of default and other credit concerns is extremely low.

 

  • The long-haul aircraft segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the global commercial aircraft leasing market is divided into long haul aircraft, and medium distance aircraft. Among this the long-haul aircraft segment is expected to grow at greatest pace in the commercial aircraft leasing market during the forecast period. Long haul aircraft are typically large aircraft that fly over long distances, such as international trips. These planes are typically larger in size and weight than other types of aircraft. These planes are preferred for longer trips because they have a significant impact on airlines' operating costs and occupancy rates.
