COVID-19 Impact on Commercial Aerospace Market

Though the Commercial Aerospace sector is almost entirely reliant on a customer base of Airlines for its market, the primes in the sector do not have consistent exposure to COVID-19 fallout. The diverging positions of Boeing and Airbus point to further nuance in market impact. Commercial Airliner orders are expected to be cancelled and deferred in significant numbers.

The ability of industry to survive the initial drop-off period through liquidity, including liquidity all the way through the supply chain. This is not a monolithic industry, and as such there is variability amongst the companies in this space (examples of Boeing and Airbus have been used).

“With The International Air Transport Association (IATA) projecting a 2020 loss of USD $252 Billion in passenger revenue due to COVID-19, Airliner orders are expected to be cancelled and deferred in significant numbers. Critical to Commercial Aerospace will be the ability to maintain liquidity through the downturn, and the maintenance of cashflow through the supplier network” – Anthony Endresen, Defense Analyst at GlobalData

Key Highlights

Critical to Commercial Aerospace will be the ability to maintain liquidity through the downturn, and the maintenance of cashflow through the supplier network.

Prime and supply-chain companies’ assistance from Government will also be determined by their position in defense, as the maintenance of the supply chain for defense products will be a national imperative.

The decline of A380 operations due to COVID-19 is likely to be the beginning of a downward trend for the A380 in terms of its place in the future market, in the short, medium and longer terms.

GlobalData expects the dropoff and recovery period to differ from the v shape in historical crisis and recovery examples, with the recovery period expected to be extended and at a significantly shallower gradient.
