Why Boeing Is a Big Opportunity

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. This means that, because of the duopoly, these two suppliers can say with confidence that they will be the ones supplying those planes. To the tune of about $4.5 trillion. In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Isaac Pino, recently having worked on a fully in-depth report on Boeing, takes us behind the curtain with the company, and gives us some more of the specifics behind some of these mouth-watering numbers.

Here at the Motley Fool however, we always like to do the responsible thing, and keep an eye to both sides of the coin. With great opportunity comes great responsibility, and for Boeing, which operates as a major player in a multitrillion dollar market, the opportunity is absolutely massive. However, the company's execution problems and emerging competitors have investors wondering whether Boeing will live up to its shareholder responsibilities. In this premium research report, two of The Motley Fool's best industrial minds have collaborated to provide investors with the key, must-know issues around Boeing. They'll be updating the report as key news hits, so make sure to claim a copy today by clicking here now.

    We already work 4 to 6 months to pay income taxes. Obama wants to tax the average tax payer more? He is no business man....that's for sure!

    You didn't mention Comac. It might not be as big of player as Boeing and Airbus even out into the future, but it won't be a duopoly and Embraer, Bombardier... could always come up with something slightly larger than they have in the past to compete with the 737 and a320.
