The Boeing Market Forcast (1996 Current Market Outlook) shows 2686
billion revenue passenger miles statute (RPMS) in 2005.  This compared
to 1576 billion RPMS in 1995 resulting in a 70% increase in 10 years.
The number for jet transports in service worldwide is forcast to go from
10,000 in 1995 to 16,300 in 2005 with smaller old transports being
replaced with larger ones.


Things look like they may be busy in the near future.  Of course this
forecast doesn't take things like terrible natural disasters such as
volcanic eruptions of large scale nor does it account for the arrival of the
martians. :)

The data that the safety info addresses is history and does not reflect the
current direction of  growth although one might try to extrapolate to get an
idea.
