Sept 22, 2017: Boeing sees a demand for 4,210 new airplanes over the next 20 years in Southeast Asia valued at $650 billion.
The company presented its Southeast Asia Current Market Outlook (CMO) during a briefing at Boeing's regional headquarters in Singapore. The annual report forecasts the region will continue its annual traffic growth at 6.2 percent, outpacing the world's average growth rate by 1.5 percent.
"Southeast Asia continues to be one of fastest growing markets in the world – and a key focus area for Boeing – as the region accounts for more than 10 percent of the total global demand," said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
"Driven by fierce competition and growing passenger demand, airlines in Southeast Asia need the most capable, flexible, economical and passenger preferred airplanes available," added Keskar. "With their new technologies, superior capabilities and advanced efficiencies, the continued orders for the 737 MAX, including the new 737 MAX 10, as well as the 787 Dreamliner, demonstrate the value Boeing's airplanes are providing to airlines in region."
Single-aisle airplanes, such as the 737 MAX family, will account for more than 70 percent of new deliveries.
