October sees record surge in aircraft orders

October sees record surge in aircraft ordersThe global aerospace industry and UK manufacturers received a boost in October, with a record-breaking 425 aircraft orders amounting to the highest October total on record — and more than three-times the orders achieved in October 2018.

Order growth was led by 404 single-aisle aircraft orders, driven by strong demand from Asian markets.

The increase in aircraft orders has contributed to the aircraft order backlog rising to above 14,000 for the first time since May 2019.

This marks a recovery for the backlog, which had declined from a peak reached in January this year. It is estimated to be worth up to £215 billion to the UK.

However, factors continuing to affect the global aerospace industry mean that aircraft deliveries remain behind the rate achieved in recent years, with only 97 aircraft being delivered in October, down 30% on October 2018; and due to ‘a run of slow deliveries’, ADS last month revised its forecast down to 1,164 aircraft deliveries in 2019. The 970 aircraft delivered so far this year are worth up to £24 billion to UK industry.

ADS chief executive Paul Everitt (www.adsgroup.org.uk) said: “The big increase in orders seen in October signals a return of confidence to the market.

“While deliveries this year remain behind original predictions, we expect a return to record production rates in the years ahead, as manufacturers work to fulfil the more than 14,000 aircraft orders now placed.

"The global aviation market is continuing to grow, and there is an opportunity for industry to continue raising the prosperity it generates around the UK.

"Ahead of the General Election, we have asked political parties to build on the successful Aerospace Industrial Strategy, secure a close relationship with the European Union, and invest in long-term innovation to secure the economic benefits from new technology and create a more sustainable future.”
