Boeing predicts $100bn market

Buyers of commercial jetliners are likely to draw more financing from capital markets in 2013, as the value of jet sales rises about 9.5 per cent to a record $104bn (£64bn), Boeing said yesterday. Capital markets will account for about 14 per cent of total jet financing, up from 10 per cent this year, Boeing said in an annual forecast. About 95 per cent of the total is divided between Boeing and Airbus.
