Market Overview:

– The American region comprising of North and Latin America exhibits a significant growth rate in terms of cargo traffic. In 2018, North America and Latin America exhibited a growth of 5.9% and 6% respectively in terms of Freight-Tonnes-Kilometers. This growth is driving the demand for freighter aircraft in the America region.
– The recent COVID19 outbreak has weakened the economies in North and Latin America and this is directly impacting the air cargo trade. However, the air cargo in North America is returning to normal as demand for essential commodities such as food and medical supplies are increasing and many freight airliners are using their aircraft at full utilization rate. The ongoing efforts to integrate the trade ecosystem between the Caribbean and Latin American nations are also fueling the rise in demand for freight aircraft in the future.
– Despite the fall in international belly cargo capacity, the demand and prices for freighter aircraft are rising in the region. The International dedicated cargo capacity exhibited a growth rate of 6% in March 2020 and a major part of this growth is coming from the North America region.
