In 2019, China’s civil aviation transport airports completed 1.35 billion passenger throughputs, an increase of 6.9% over the previous year.
By the end of 2019, the number of aircrafts registered with CAAC was 3,818, an increase of 179 over the previous year.
According to CRI, in recent years, the rapid expansion of China’s airlines has benefited from China’s demographic dividend and economic development, but the traditional product service concepts, segmented business processes and department settings, as well as relatively old core systems, limit the innovation ability of the aviation industry.
Since 2020, the global epidemic has brought unprecedented impact to the aviation industry. Many airlines have experienced suspension, even bankruptcy and restructuring. The whole industry is facing a reshuffle.
The passenger traffic volume of the whole industry in February 2020 decreased by 84.5% compared to the same period last year, and the loss of the aviation industry reached about RMB 21 billion, the largest loss in a single month in history.
China’s civil aviation industry is gradually recovering from novel coronavirus since March 2020. However, it will take a long time to fully recover to the level before the outbreak.
In the first five months of 2020, the aviation industry was hit hard by the pandemic. Compared to the same period in 2019, the import volume decreased by 84.53%.
According to the unladen weight, China Customs divides the imported aircrafts into four categories: small, medium, large and super large. Among them, import volume of small aircrafts is always the highest.
According to CRI, the major sources of aircrafts are normally the USA, Germany and France.
Major Aircraft Importers includes airlines and some enterprises who provide leasing services of aircrafts. The top three airlines in China are Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines.
According to CRI, due to the lack of aircraft manufacturing capacity of Chinese local enterprises, it is estimated that China’s civil aviation aircraft will mainly rely on imports from 2020 to 2024.
Considering the development of China’s aviation industry and the influencing factors of the epidemic situation, it is estimated that the CAGR of China’s civil aircraft imports would be about 4.38% from 2020 to 2024, reaching 762 by 2024.
According to CRI, moreover, it is estimated that it would be difficult for China’s aviation industry to recover to the level of 2019 from 2020 to 2024. As a result, the number of medium, large and super large aircrafts imported into the Chinese market will decline. With the development of China’s general aviation market, the number of small aircraft imported into the Chinese market would continue to rise.
