Marketline's graphs show the trends for the broad used business aircraft market as well as the jet, turboprop, single/multi piston and helicopter categories.
All of the listed aircraft have a composite score that is presented in the Used Aircraft Market graph. Data points are represented in relationship to the respective new delivered historical price that is equal to 100%. The measure of change is reported in the actual percentage of value in relation to new. The delta between reporting periods can be concluded as the percentage of change.
CMS represents an aircraft’s current strength in the market. An A+ rating indicates the aircraft is enjoying a very firm market. Prices for an A+ aircraft are steadily rising, and holding times are very short or nonexistent. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a C- aircraft is one experiencing a very soft market. Its price is commonly discounted, and it often sets on the ramp in excess of eight months before selling. It is important to remember that Current Market Strength is not a forecast. It is valid only at Marketline’s effective date of release.
It appears the first quarter of 2016 is demonstrating what pace the pre-owned aircraft market is likely to follow going forward this year. New deliveries of business aircraft seem to have created a greater inventory of available pre-owned aircraft in the marketplace.
