MONTREAL—Bombardier Inc. expects its revenue to grow to between US$17 billion and US$17.5 billion next year.

The company says that’s up by about US$1 billion from its guidance for 2017 at the mid-point of the range.

However, analysts on average had expected revenue to grow to about $18.4 billion next year, according to Thomson Reuters.

Bombardier says the growth in revenue is expected to be driven by the ramp-up of key projects at Bombardier Transportation and higher C Series aircraft deliveries.
