2017 Demand Remained Stable, While Asking Prices Saw Significant Decline
At year-end 2017, market demand, across all segments of the business aircraft market, remained relatively unchanged from 2016, closing the year at just below average demand, according to Asset Insight’s quarterly Market Report. Buyers were the beneficiaries of a 22% decrease in asking prices during the past year, while our tracked inventory fleet ended 2017 in the “Very Good” Asset Quality range.
Record Low Ask Prices Enticing Buyers - Sales Primarily Focused on Higher Quality Aircraft
Trading of high quality aircraft remains active, as savvy buyers seek to derive value due to historically low prices. Due to ongoing high inventory levels among older, remaining inventory aircraft, and sellers’ traditional Q4 desire to sell their aircraft prior to year-end, average values are expected to fall during Q4, according to Asset Insight’s Market Report (AI2 Market Report) covering Q3.
Trends Reveal Record Low Prices in Q3 Pre-Owned Business Jet and Turboprops Transactions
