Global travel restriction and decrease in air travel amid COVID-19 will critically affect the aviation industry

The aviation industry in 2020 has been one of the industries hardest hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The significant factors such as global travel restrictions and reduced aircraft deliveries are responsible for the sharp decline in market growth. Market players and service providers in the aviation industry are emphasizing new technologies adopted for the revitalization of the sector, such as 5G in the aviation market.

According to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), producers have observed a drop in demand for aircraft and delays in supply. For example, Airbus SAS transported 566 aircraft supplies in 2020 compared to 863 in 2019, while The Boeing Company transported around 157 aircraft in 2020 compared to 380 in 2019.

The 2020 report from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) suggests a 60% reduction in the total number of air passengers (2.69 billion) compared to 4.49 billion in 2019 with a loss of approx. $371 billion to airlines.
