Boeing's aircraft deliveries 1998-2020

Deliveries at Boeing dropped by 60 percent between 2019 and 2020. Boeing delivered only 157 commercial aircraft worldwide in 2020, including 43 Boeing 737 models. Boeing’s 737 airliner family has come under scrutiny for falling short of safety standards. As a result, some 120 orders for this model family were cancelled in 2019. The total order backlog for Boeing 737 aircraft stood at 4,389 in 2019, which is about 80 percent of the company's total backlog of 5,406. With only 54 new net orders weighing in against about 380 deliveries, the aerospace manufacturer is witnessing its worst year in more than a decade.

The Boeing Company

Founded in 1916, the Boeing Company is a global aircraft, rotorcraft and aerospace manufacturer. As one of the largest commercial aircraft manufacturer, Boeing employed roughly 161,100 people during 2019. Boeing’s research and development (R&D) expenditure rose somewhat continuously since the 2000s and in 2019 its R&D expenditure amounted to 3.2 billion U.S. dollars. Between 2007 and 2018, the worldwide revenue of Boeing increased steadily, reaching over 100 billion U.S. dollars. Yet in 2019, the aircraft manufacturer experienced a sharp decline in its revenue streams, down to 76 billion U.S. dollars. This decline is attributed to the two fatal Boeing 737 MAX crashes, which is a recent advanced version of Boeing 737. After the Boeing 737 MAX groundings, the company experienced a recession globally as the upcoming orders got cancelled.

Engine suppliers for Boeing

Aircraft engine manufacturing is a capital-intensive industry with few highly-specialized firms. Although Boeing is one of the largest firms in the world, it is not manufacturing engines for its aircraft. Boeing’s aircraft fleet utilize engines manufactured by CFM International, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce and International Aero Engines. As of December 2019, CFM International manufactured engines for over 7,800 Boeing aircraft. Based on market share, CFM International and General Electric Aviation were the two major commercial aircraft engine manufacturers in North America as of May 2019.
