PESTLE Analysis of Airline Industry : A Case Study on Mitigating Challenges Associated with Reducing Prices and Increasing Service Standards

Nov 2, 2018

Airline Industry Analysis

Despite increasing levels of airborne passenger and cargo traffic, revenue for the global airlines industry has grown sluggishly over the past five years as unstable fuel prices and rising competition have set downward pressure on airline ticket prices and freight shipping rates, restraining industry revenue growth. Moreover, the total value of world trade has declined over the past five years, curbing demand for cargo transportation services. At the same time, recent growth in global per capita income has fueled the market for airline passenger transportation. Moving forward, industry revenue is proposed to prosper as continued increases in global per capita income and travel activity are supported by economic growth in Asia and other emerging markets.
