The End of the ‘Supercycle’?

  • Tuesday, 02/04/2020: 9:40 AM - 10:20 AM


In the economic upturn we have seen an increasing number of new companies get capital and buy used aircraft and engines for part out in a sustained supercycle. Demand has been larger than supply allowing for more market players, resulting in margins being under pressure and stakeholders taking higher risks. What will happen when the market declines, what challenges face the engine makers and how do we plan for downturn? How are these new players and investment re-shaping the industry? What are the potential downfalls in a sellers market and when will the buyers gain more power? Do we keep providing engines for all these aircraft? How can we navigate this space, preserve longer term business and remain competitive and profitable.
