The annual report forecasts the region will continue its strong annual traffic growth at 6.2%, outpacing the world's average growth rate by 1.5%.

"Driven by fierce competition and growing passenger demand, airlines in Southeast Asia need the most capable, flexible, economical and passenger preferred airplanes available," added Keskar.

"With their new technologies, superior capabilities and advanced efficiencies, the continued orders for the 737 MAX, including the new 737 MAX 10, as well as the 787 Dreamliner, demonstrate the value Boeing's airplanes are providing to airlines in region."

Single-aisle airplanes, such as the 737 MAX family, will account for more than 70% of new deliveries.

As in previous years, the low-cost business model continues to be a main driver of traffic growth inSoutheast Asia, growing to more than 50% of the total Southeast Asian market by the end of the forecast period.

Boeing projects a worldwide demand for 41,030 new airplanes over the next 20 years.
