In a recent article published on MindBench, Tom Captain from Deloitte says “The commercial aerospace sector is expected to set new records for aircraft production in 2015,”

According to the industry report by Deloitte, the steady growth the industry will face is due to increases in production rates “due to the accelerated replacement cycle of obsolete aircraft with next generation fuel efficient aircraft, as well as the continued increases in passenger travel demands.”
