US airframe maker Boeing said it expects China to need 3,710 new commercial aircraft, worth about US$390 billion, over the next 20 years, AFP reported. China is the fastest-growing aviation center in the world and accounts for 41% of all airplane demand in the Asia-Pacific region, a Boeing spokesman said Wednesday. The single-aisle market would account for 70% of the demand, while demand for larger aircraft like 747s would be limited to about 100 planes. Earlier this week, Embraer, the world’s third-largest aircraft manufacturer, predicted China would need 883 regional planes over the next 20 years.
