DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Air Freight Industry- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Key Market Trends
Emergence of E-commerce Propels Demand for Air Freight Services
Despite being a costlier mode of transportation, the increasing demand for perishables, chemicals, and valuables, as well as the rising demand for just-in-time production of goods, has created a massive demand for air freight services. Presently, air freight is being impacted by the rise of e-commerce from both B2B and B2C perspectives. The evolving e-commerce has put pressure on sales channels for faster delivery and an optimum supply chain. This scenario brings opportunities for the third-party logistics and warehousing services to integrate with the air e-commerce channel.
The major e-commerce players in the industry are disrupting the traditional logistics supply chain with some innovative measures, in order to become independent. Amazon seems to be leading this race by following a different strategy. With Amazon Flex, Seller Flex, or the Amazon Prime Air program, the retail giant is trying to dominate the supply chain for its own services. As a result, it can reduce costs and become independent of its current logistics service providers. As per the technical sources, the company is also offering shipping services to third parties that are not represented on its website.
North America is the Fastest-growing Air Cargo Market and Asia-Pacific Accounted for the Largest Share
As per the current statistical sources, North America registered significant growth rates in 2018. In terms of freight-ton-kilometer (FTK), North America grew by 6.4% in 2018, when compared to 2017, followed by Latin America (5.9%), which is significantly higher than the global average (3.5%). Airlines based in North America were the strongest performers in January 2019. A robust performance from the US economy, which supported job growth and consumer spending, has been an important contributor to the recent cargo market outcomes for carriers in this region.
The air freight industry is a key part of the transportation and logistics industry. With the growing e-commerce trends, the demand for air cargo services is increasing significantly and more cargo is moving across the North American borders, as well as to the other regions. The recovering economies of the Latin American countries, like Brazil and Argentina, boost air cargo trade between the two regions.
