Large Aircraft Project - New Era of Chinese Aviation Industry & Numerous Opportunities for International Cooperation

According to official estimates, China’s domestic market will need at least 1,500 large aircraft by 2020. US aviation giant Boeing has predicted a demand for 2,900 aircraft in China, with a net worth of USD 280 billion, over the next 20 years.  To ensure the Chinese companies’ share in the market, the State Council of China has approved a plan to spend RMB50 billion to 60 billion yuan (USD 6.45 billion to USD 7.74 billion) to develop large commercial aircraft.  

China abandoned a project to build large aircraft in the 1970s, but has since acquired considerable aviation engineering expertise by making components for both Boeing and Airbus.  Despite the ARJ-21's reputation as homegrown, about 40 percent of its components are produced by 19 separate foreign manufacturers. To realize the large aircraft project, it is said that China plans to integrate the new aircraft-maker with the international industry and shed the traditional strategy of developing, designing and producing all components for an aircraft independently. Engines, electronics and components for the new models will be acquired via bids on the global market, which brings more and more international cooperation opportunities among the Chinese companies and the international aviation industry.
