IBA's Helicopter Update: The Outlook
Webinars16May 2024

IBA's Helicopter Update: The Outlook

This webinar, led by IBA’s Kane Ray, Head of General Aviation and Aftermarket, and Rami Abdel Aziz, Manager - Helicopters, covered various aspects of the helicopter market, including finance and leasing, a global market review, EMS and offshore market outlook, and the latest helicopter values and lease rate performance.   Summary The session covered  growth opportunities in the helicopter weight segments, the trend towards multi-role helicopters, and the impact of supply chain issues and escalating costs on the heavy helicopter segment. IBA were also questioned on the potential impact of Advanced Air Mobility Technologies on the helicopter market. The webinar concluded with a Q&A, addressing questions about the differences between the helicopter and commercial aircraft leasing markets, the low leasing proportion of the helicopter market, and the standards of different helicopter segments, notably in the Medium and Super-medium helicopter weight categories.   Presenters Kane Ray, Head of General Aviation and Aftermarket, IBA Rami Abdel Aziz, Manager - Helicopters, IBA   Watch on-demand   Key Takeaways Helicopter Leasing Market Growth:The helicopter leasing market has grown from a 8-9% leased fleet to nearly 11% in recent years, with expectations to reach 15% by the end of the decade. This growth is driven by operators choosing to finance and lease their helicopters rather than purchasing them outright. Regional EMS Helicopter Demand: The demand for EMS helicopters varies by region, with North America leading the way caused by hospital and private sector needs, while in Europe, demand is driven by governmental public sector needs. Demand in  Asia is a hot topic due to continuing finance and investment opportunities. Offshore Market Challenges: The offshore oil and gas market is a significant segment for helicopter lessors. Safety requirements for helicopters serving this market are driving new orders. However, the market is also facing significant supply chain constraints and escalating costs due to high demand and shortages of essential components. Air Mobility Technology Impact: Advanced Air Mobility Technologies are expected to impact the Ultra-light helicopter segment in the coming decades. However, the impact on the helicopter market presently remains minimal. Helicopter Market Value Stability: The market value outlook for helicopters remains stable through 2025 due to factors such as sustained demand, constrained capacity, high inflation and interest rates, and ongoing supply chain issues. One improvement is that heavy helicopters still trail base values, and IBA continue to forecast a closing of this gap.   "Helicopter fleet growth is expected to outpace retirements, driven by sustained demand, constrained capacity, and high inflation and interest rates. However, the market growth remains dependent on the utilisation of existing helicopters, stabilisation of high inflation and interest rates, and to an extent, the price of oil.   The leasing proportion of the helicopter market is growing, with the percentage of leased to owned helicopters surpassing 10% and nearing 11%. We anticipate this to reach 15% by the end of the decade."

Aircraft Engine Values & Lease Rates: April 2024

Aircraft Engine Values & Lease Rates: April 2024

Navigating the complexities of the aircraft engine market requires a nuanced understanding of evolving trends in both market values and lease rates. In this comprehensive overview for Q1 2024, we explore the dynamics shaping narrowbody, widebody, and regional aircraft engine segments.   From the surge in demand for new-generation engines like the LEAP-1A and GTF™ series to the resilience of regional turboprop engines amidst supply chain challenges, each segment offers unique insights into the aviation industry's current state and future trajectory.   Using aircraft engine data and intelligence from IBA Insight, we explore the different segments of the aircraft engine market to provide an analysis of their respective trajectories in terms of value and leasing dynamics. Narrowbody aircraft The dynamic landscape of narrowbody aircraft engines is shaped by evolving market values and lease rates, influenced by factors ranging from operational demand to regulatory directives. New generation engines   Source: IBA Insight   Source: IBA Insight   New generation aircraft engine series, including the CFM LEAP-1A and PW1100G (A320neo family), and CFM LEAP-1B (Boeing 737 MAX), are experiencing increased market values, as observed during IBA’s “Engines Explained” webinar. Specifically, the LEAP-1A and -1B saw notable growth over base values this year, attributed to list price escalations stemming from ongoing issues with new generation engines and heightened operator demand. Despite challenges such as groundings, the leasing market for PW1100G and CFM LEAP-1A engines remains robust, driven by operators' efforts to maintain their A320neo aircraft operations. While lease rates for both engines have surged in response to this demand, rates for the LEAP-1B have remained subdued due to its shorter time in service and  resulting lag for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance inductions. Current generation engines Source: IBA Insight   Source: IBA Insight   Market values for aircraft engines such as the CFM56-7B have increased up to 20%, driven primarily by shop visit demand, supply chain issues for newer generation engines, and the consequent move to extended aircraft and engine leases for current generation assets such as the Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320-200.  Additionally, market values for the V2500-A5 turbofan model have risen, influenced by its  lower relative time on-wing than the CFM56 equivalents, and the impact of several recent Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airworthiness Directives. In terms of lease rates, aviation data from IBA Insight indicates a recovery to pre-COVID levels, with lease extensions becoming common to minimise downtime. The V2500-A5 emerges as a long-term top performer in this category due to the aforementioned factors, while the CFM56-7B is presently the most in demand engine of the current generation.   Widebody aircraft The widebody asset class is witnessing notable shifts in the market dynamics of both mature widebody aircraft engines and their new-generation counterparts. Despite the complexities, both segments are pivotal in shaping the future of aviation technology and market trends. Mature widebody engines Source: IBA Insight   Factors such as emerging freighter candidates, notably the A330-300P2F and the 777-300ER P2F, increase demand for specific engine types that cater to this aircraft. For A330ceo engine options, IBA’s engine valuations team has observed increases in adjustments to engine values, notably for the Rolls-Royce Trent 700 and GE Aerospace CF6-80E. Our engine market values have been recalibrated to mirror recent demand, evident in the relationship between base and market values from 2019 to 2024. The GE Aerospace GE90-115 is nearing its base value, following adjustments based on market feedback. Although engines in this family tend to incur high ownership costs, they remain the latest technology for their respective aircraft types. Delays in aircraft programs like the 777X accentuate the importance of engines like the GE90-115. New generation engines Source: IBA Insight   Confidence in the GE Aerospace GEnx-1B, which holds the dominant share for engine power on the 787, means favourable market values compared to the Trent 1000 engines. What we are seeing are durability concerns with the Trent 1000  resulting in subdued confidence from operators, as evidenced by Air New Zealand's order cancellations. Despite these challenges, new-generation aircraft engines are the optimum technology,  showing continual increases in market values.   Regional aircraft engines A notable surge in demand has been observed in the turboprop engine market, particularly for the PW127M  and PW150A series, with IBA Insight’s aircraft engine values showing market values rebounding to levels exceeding those before the COVID-19 pandemic. Like narrowbody aircraft engine segment, this uptick is partly attributed to a scarcity of spare engine supply and ongoing production issues faced by Pratt & Whitney Canada, leading operators to rely heavily on the leasing market.   Some regional jet engine values  have not fully recovered from pre-COVID levels, with adjustments made to reflect cost escalations in the market. The CF34-8E5, which powers Embraer E170 and E175 aircraft, remains in demand, particularly in North America due to pilot scope clauses and market appeal supported by an existing order backlog in the region   Source: IBA Insight Source: IBA Insight   Looking ahead, market values for aircraft engines like the CF34-8E5 and CF34-8C5 are expected to remain strong, driven by this regional market demand  While challenges persist, particularly related to spare engine availability and ongoing technical issues, the regional aircraft engine market continues to evolve, with certain engine types experiencing recovery and others facing ongoing adjustments to market conditions.   Want to know more?   If you have any further questions, comments, or feedback, please get in touch.
