Commercial Aircraft MRO Market worth over $95bn by 2027

  • Published Date: August 16, 2021

Commercial Aircraft MRO Market Size is set to surpass USD 95 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Commercial aircraft MRO companies provide services through a network of facilities that bundle landing gears and technical & engineering capabilities into one. Backed by world-class processes & systems and a combined track record of safety, performance & diverse services, aircraft MRO companies can lower costs by fully maximizing aircraft availability. With multiple facilities located worldwide, independent MRO providers are in a better position to maximize profit by reducing turn times with integrated global parts and supply chains.

Developing economies are witnessing a growth in the number of aircraft MRO service providers owing to the cheap labor costs and partnerships between aircraft manufacturers & MRO service providers. OEMs in the aircraft industry are trying to develop a new business model that will allow supply chain integration, low inventory costs, and real-time procurement of parts. The shift toward composite materials, such as carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, glass-fiber-reinforced polymers, and others, to manufacture aircraft parts is poised to change maintenance techniques. Furthermore, development in technologies along with the advancements in software systems will play a significant role in enhancing system performance. A surging focus on autonomous control and flight safety will positively impact the commercial aircraft MRO market during the forecast timeframe. Predictive maintenance and data analytics are estimated to introduce new sets of maintenance requirements.

In the COVID-19 pandemic situation, demand for international airlines fell significantly. Presently, the daily utilization rate of widebody aircraft is low due to high operating costs and a lower number of boarding passengers. It is predicted that the rising number of tourism and business travelers, especially in APAC countries including China, Japan, Singapore & India, will majorly contribute to the aviation industry growth. This factor will surge the demand for MRO aircraft services in the APAC region.
