About the Dubai Airshow

Dubai's aeronautical trade show, a world-renowned biennial event commonly called the Dubai Airshow, was first held in 1986. This flagship event draws players in the aerospace industry from all over the world to present their innovations and solutions to the challenges of aerospace and aeronautics.

The Dubai Airshow offers companies in the sector a unique opportunity to showcase their expertise, develop their network, and explore the latest industry trends and technologies. The event is also an ideal place to establish strategic partnerships and access new business opportunities.

Key figures

Objectives of the mission:

  • Exploring opportunities: Identify new business opportunities in the aerospace industry.
  • Strategic networking: Establish key relationships with industry professionals and decision-makers.
  • Access to innovation: Discover the latest technological advances and industry trends.
  • International expansion: Expand your company's presence in global markets.
  • Promoting expertise: Showcase your company's expertise on an international scale.

Discover the Middle East, a fast-growing aerospace hub

The aeronautical sector is experiencing spectacular growth in the Middle East, already accounting for 13.3% of GDP in 2021, and this figure could rise to 45% by 2030! This contributes to the Middle East's position as the world's 2nd largest aircraft fleet, with plans to acquire over 2,000 new aircraft by 2030. The United Arab Emirates, in particular, is home to the largest fleet of civil aircraft in service within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), representing over 25% of the regional Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) market, valued at more than $11 billion.

In addition, the authorities plan to invest more than $136 billion by 2030 in the regional distribution and re-export of aeronautical parts. Saudi Arabia, a key player, is also set to play a major role, with a market estimated at $74.6 billion by 2030.
