    Read more > exceeds the point of onebillion parts!

    parts demand w ill be largely

    concentrated in the classical

    aircraft sector.

    Currently the European

    manufacturer has almost a

    backlog of 2800 Airbus A320

    w ith Boeing to maintain approx.

    the same figures for its 737 type

    of aircraft. But a thorough study

    unveils that future deliveries w ill

    be distributed unevenly around

    the w orld. Whilst the North

    American and the European air

    companies maintain their

    dedication to Boeing B737 w ith

    more than 1500 of aircraft to be

    delivered, the Asia/Asia-Pacif ic

    region aw aits for less than 900

    B737s. The overall number of

    Airbus A320 orders from the

    Western carriers exceeds the

    one placed by the Asian-Pacif ic-

    based carriers by almost 25%.

    But the latter, on the other hand,

    show s much greater interest in

    the new Boeing 787 and Airbus

    A350 than the former. How ever,

    even though the new generation

    aircraft are declared to have

    higher fuel eff iciency, they are

    still unlikely to overtake the

    Airbus A320 and Boeing 737in

    the middle-term perspective.
