Original Equipment Manufacturers

Aircraft deliveries and orders rose steadily through the years leading up to 2015. While deliveries rose during that year, orders stalled and 2016 was also marked by shrinking orders brought about by economic instability. But the orders list remains unfulfilled, and supplemented by a rise in tourism, increasing global connectivity and lower oil prices, the aviation industry is expected to keep expanding and so will the demand for new aircraft.

This chapter will analyze the growth, challenges and opportunities that aerospace OEMs have faced in the past year, with a special focus on new aircraft and new technologies. The focus will be on the OEMs currently operating in Mexico and the conditions they face in the country, their main achievements during the past year and their expansion plans.
