Aerospace Sports Market Assessment in Jordan

  • The aerospace sports market in Jordan was estimated at USD 1.9 million in 2019, and dropped to USD973,000 in 2020 due to COVID led tourism disruptions. The market by tourist trips was estimated to be 9,972 tourist trips in 2019, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.6% to reach 11,624 trips by 2025
  • Per tourist spend on aerospace sports was USD196 in 2019, and is expected to decline to USD162 in 2025, mainly due to reduction in average trip cost. Companies are offering discounts on various services to promote the tourism in the country, which will result in reduction in effective trip prices
  • The market can be segmented into eight key aerospace sports, aerial tour – Amman, aerial tour – neighbouring cultural sites, hot air balloon, gyrocopter, microlight, ultralight, skydiving, and paragliding. Aerial tour and hot air balloon are the largest market segment, accounted for over 69% of the market in 2019.
  • The industry is highly concentrated with the top 3 players accounting for ~68% of the total market. Only one company- The Royal Aero Sports Club of Jordan, operates in five sports segments, while remaining operates in 2-3 segment only. Four companies operate in aerial tour segment, two in hot air balloon, ultralight, and paragliding, and only one in the gyrocopter, microlight, and skydiving segment. The two major companies operating in the segment are not-for-profit companies operate under the patronage of govt. of Jordan
  • Though the overall market size is relatively low, it is limited due to availability of the resources and services, and hence the market offers attractive opportunity for the entry of new company in the segment. Major companies in the segment are not-for-profit companies and operate under govt. patronage to support the aerospace sports in the country, hence new entry in the market may see some support from govt. as well.
