World's Appetite for More Planes Grows, Boeing Says, But New Freighters Aren't in Demand

Boeing's latest fleet forecast predicts a doubling of the world's fleet of aircraft in the next 20 years, generating demand for 34,000 new planes, at a cost of $4.5tr. At the same time, officials said the demand for freighters will remain sluggish over the next two decades and revised downward their previous forecast. Even so, freighters will nearly double to 3,200 by 2031.

The total freighter number includes 940 new planes and 1,820 conversion freighters.
The majority of the passenger-plane demand will come in the form of single-aisle craft. Boeing is also expecting a demand for 7,950 twin-aisle planes at a cost of $2.08bn, according to the just-released 2012 Current Market Outlook.
