Boeing - number of employees 2001-2018 The statistic shows the number of Boeing employees from the fiscal year of 2001 to the fiscal year of 2018. In the fiscal year of 2018, the aircraft manufacturer employed some 153,000 people.
How many employees does Boeing have?

Boeing is one of the global leaders in the aircraft manufacturing industry, as well as one of the largest companies in the world. In its 2018 fiscal year, the Chicago-headquartered jet manufacturer generated around 101 billion U.S. dollars in revenue. Boeing is the largest employer in the industry, despite the slight decline in the number of employees in recent years. Boeing employed about 161,000 people in 2015 and around 150,500 in 2016. In comparison, the number of Airbus Group employees stood at around 136,600 in 2014, while Brazil’s Embraer, also one of the largest airplane makers in the world, employed just 23,000 people in 2015.

Boeing and Airbus are the industry leaders, and the jet manufacturing industry has been considered a facto duopoly. Together, the two companies share 65 percent of the world airliner fleet. There has been a close competition between the two companies over the years, with each manufacturer taking the industry lead at different times. Boeing has been slightly outperforming Airbus in the last few years, as the American jet manufacturer reported higher revenue and a higher number of employees than Airbus, and also has been delivering more aircraft than its main competitor since 2011. Boeing delivered 763 aircraft in 2017, compared to 806 units delivered by Airbus in the same year. Airbus, along with Embraer, Bombardier and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries are Boeing's most important competitors in the aerospace manufacturing industry.
