North America is the most significant market for air freight, with the United States being the leading regional market. The market in the region is being driven by the growing end-use industries, which comprise of electrical, personal care, machinery and automobile equipment, pharmaceutical, fashion, and retail sectors, among others.
The Asia Pacific is likely to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period. Surplus volume from China is expected to be supplied to other Southeast Asian countries. The supply in the region surpasses the demand, owing to the expanded capacity, which started growing faster since 2018. The region’s capacity expanded by around 2.5% in 2020 as compared to 2018. The market is also expected to be supported by the rising investments in the Southeast Asian nations by the freight forwarders. The sourcing locations by the shippers are expected to change in the coming years, that is, the cargo traffic is likely to be shifted from China to the Southeast Asian nations like Vietnam. The shift is expected to occur to attract more third part logistics investments in the Southeast Asian nations, where the demand is healthy, and the potential is also high. The freight rates, however, will increase between the United States and China, and are likely to affect the market and might act as a constraint for the industry growth for a short period.
Mexico is planning to add terminal 3 in the coming years in order to make the airport more manageable. In the recent years, the airport has been facing problems like difficulty in managing slots. Adding another terminal is likely to manage all the flights in the region’s busiest airport. This expected addition is leading to more routes being explored by the shippers who are planning to route Chinese freight to the United States through Mexico.
