Overview of the Aerospace and Aviation Sector 

The Indian civil aviation industry is on a high growth trajectory. India has a vision of becoming the third largest aviation market by 2020 and is expected to be the largest by 2030.The civil aviation industry in India has ushered in a new era of expansion driven by factors such as low-cost carriers (LCC), modern airports, foreign direct investments (FDI) in domestic airlines, cutting edge information technology (IT) interventions and a growing emphasis on regional connectivity. In terms of market size, the Indian civil aviation industry is amongst the top 10 in the world with a size of around US$ 16 billion.

India?s scheduled airlines carried 67.73 million passengers in 2014 compared with 61.42 million passengers in 2013, and 58.81 million in 2012, according to the DGCA. Air traffic in India grew between 20 and 40 per cent for six years starting 2003, when low-fare airline Air Deccan was launched, making it possible for more people to travel by air. Aircraft movements, passengers and freight at all Indian airports are expected to grow at a rate of 4.2 per cent, 5.3 per cent and 5 per cent, respectively, for the next five years, according to estimates by Airports Authority of India (AAI).

There is large untapped potential for growth in the Indian aviation industry due to the fact that access to aviation is still a dream for nearly 99.5 per cent of its large population, nearly 40 per cent of which is the upwardly mobile middle class. Thus with the growing aviation industry the demand for professions such as Flight Steward, etc. is bound to increase. The manpower employed in Indian aviation industry is expected to increase from 62,000 in FY-2011 to 117,000 by FY-2017 and further to 350,000 new employees in next decade to facilitate growth. The aviation industry offers 56.6 million jobs globally. The Indian aviation industry is estimated to become the third largest aviation market in the world by 2020. Being an airport management professional offers great career opportunities at domestic and international airports and various airlines.
