Industry volumes are defined as the total number of revenue passengers carried/enplaned (departures) at all airports within the specified country or region, excluding transit passengers who arrive and depart on the same flight code. For the US and Canada, transborder passengers departing from either country are considered as part of the international segment. Industry value is defined as the total revenue obtained by airlines from transporting these passengers. This avoids the double-counting of passengers.

Profit margins of the global airlines industry surged in 2015, according to IATA, with the North American market continuing to be the by far the most profitable. This trend is explained by three points. Firstly, it is the decline of oil prices which has crucially led to recovery of profitability globally. Secondly, the rising income of population in countries within the Asia-Pacific region such as China and India boosted demand for flights - mainly domestic, while the US industry also experienced strong growth favored by its economic environment. Finally, regulation stringencies also seen in Asia-Pacific countries have been relaxed in recent years, stimulating the growth of domestic carriers, as well as enhancing investment from foreign carriers.
