Current and Future Trends of the Aviation Sector in India


The aviation sector today supports 56.6 million jobs and produces over US$ 2.2 trillion of the global gross domestic product (GDP). The Government plans to invest US$ 12.1 billion in the airport sector during the 12th Five-Year Plan period (of this US$ 9.3 billion is expected to come from India?s private sector) towards construction of new, low-cost airports and development of existing ones.


According to Ajit Singh, Minister for Civil Aviation, Government of India, India would be the third largest aviation market by 2020. The foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows in air transport (including air freight) during April 2000 to March 2014 stood at US$ 495.24 million, according to data with Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).


The Indian civil aviation industry is among the top 10 globally with a size of around US$ 16 billion, according to a recent KPMG report. The aviation industry presently supports about 0.5 per cent of the India?s GDP. This sector caters to about 150 million passengers daily, with the potential to grow further. By 2020, traffic at airports in India is anticipated to reach 450 million. Indian carriers plan to double their fleet to around 800 aircrafts.


The growth in Indian aviation has created significant employment opportunities. With passengers and aircraft fleet likely to double by 2020, the need to strengthen the human resource development infrastructure is immediate. As per KPMG estimates, the total manpower requirement of airlines is estimated to rise from 62,000 in FY-2011 to 117,000 by FY-2017. It is estimated that the sector, overall, will need about 350,000 new employees to facilitate growth in the next decade.
