The global fixed-base operator market is expected to grow from US$ 25,194.55 million in 2022 to US$ 37,177.46 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2022 to 2028.

The overall fixed-base operator market size in APAC is witnessing slow growth as compared to other regions such as North America and Europe, which is mainly attributed to the presence of a smaller number of business as well as private jets across the region. The fixed-base operator market is observing slight growth in the Southeast countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, and Macau. The presence of huge middle-class population with a wide range of income levels, coupled with a surge in the spending power of this population, is influencing the private aviation industry, specifically in the Southeast Asia. The aviation industry is growing in dynamically in the region, especially in developing economies, however, the fixed-base operator market is witnessing slow growth in the region. The key reason behind slow growth rate of FBOs in the region is the lack of business aviation infrastructure in China, India, Japan, and Malaysia. However, in the recent years, these countries are observing steady rise in business aviation, owing to which the number of fixed-base operator market players are rising strongly in the region.

Irrespective of the slow overall growth in Asia, the fixed-base operator market is rising at a notable pace in the Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia, Singapore, Macau, and Hong Kong, among others. The immaturity of business and presence of the private aviation sector are the two key factors limiting the fixed-base operator market growth in the region. Moreover, unlike North America and Europe, APAC has a smaller number of FBOs. In APAC, the highest number of FBOs are present in Australia, i.e., 23 facilities, with business aviation fleet of ~200 aircraft. Furthermore, the corporates have emerged as passionate users of business jets across the region; thus, the rising demand is likely to boost the business aviation industry growth in the coming years. Therefore, the fixed-base operator market players are introducing attractive membership schemes and are easily availing chartered services by using advanced technologies through online platforms, thereby making charter services more accessible to the people, which is driving the procurement of new business jets thereby catalyzing the fixed-base operator market size.
