The passenger jet industry at the moment is a duopoly, between Boeing (NYSE: BA ) and Airbus (which operates under EADS). As we look at the current rate of growth of worldwide air travel, particularly in the Asian markets, the projected number of new airplanes required to keep pace with that growth rate will be around 34,000.
