Four Megatrends impacting Aviation

Four megatrends reshape the aviation industry at its core. Independent Business Group (IBG) enables customers to use emerging opportunities and build a future-proof, optimized and sustainable aviation industry.



Digitalization permeates every link in the air transportation value chain. From design of new aircraft via airspace control to passenger services. The strong growth of e-commerce leads to a large increase in transportation of goods across the globe, and on the operational side new digital innovations offer solutions for increased efficiency at the airports.



Globally, aviation accounts for about 2-3 percent of total carbon dioxide emissions.
Consequently, there is increasing pressure on the industry to reduce its negative impact on our climate. Many passengers hesitate to fly, as opinion makers advocate other means of travel and advises against flying.

Post pandemic recovery of passenger traffic


Between 2009 and 2019 air travel increased by 83 percent to some 4.5 billion passengers boarded. In 2020 this number dropped to 1.8 billion in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic. Today we see a strong recovery in number of passengers globally and the estimation is that the global travelling soon is back to 2019 figures and that we in a longer perspective will have a continuous growth that will more than double the global travelling until 2040.

Alternative power sources and new technologies

Power sources, new technologies

Aircraft manufacturers are pushing innovation to find renewable power sources. Electricity and hydrogen powered aircraft will be ready for commercial use before the end of the decade. Drones with vertical take-off and landing capabilities will reshape air transportation within and between urban and rural.
