Aircraft Engine MRO Market Analysis

Airports worldwide have various types of engine MRO facilities. Commonly, the maintenance is done on the aircraft's airframe or the engine. Engine MRO services also include MRO of components nowadays. Depending on the service type, these services are provided at the airport and, sometimes, at off-airport facilities. Activities, such as routine inspections, regular troubleshooting, or day-to-day engine checks can be done when the aircraft is parked in the air terminal.

Aircraft Engine MRO Market Overview

One of the key applications of aircraft engine MRO is to ensure that all rotating stages of the engine are balanced and keep minimum vibration levels. This improves the engine's durability and fuel efficiency and restricts the amount of engine wear from vibration. By upgrading aircraft engines and components related to them, the need for advanced infrastructure and skilled labor for the aircraft engine MRO will also increase. The MRO requirement of engines varies based on the type and categories of engines. Older and smaller aircraft engines have times between overhauls (TBOs) of a maximum of 5,000 hours. Modern engines have more than 6,000 hours of TBOs. With more business aircraft flying less than 500 hours a year, the requirement of engine MRO service averages 12 years or more it.

Aircraft Engine MRO Market Drivers and Opportunities

Stringent Government Regulations Related to Carbon Emissions

In 2021, the US government announced its aim for a 20% reduction in aircraft emissions by 2030. Several regulatory authorities are implementing strategies to reduce carbon emissions. For instance, in March 2022, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimated that more than 10 billion trips per year will be made by flights by 2050 and thus announced to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

More than 60% of the countries worldwide have announced a net-zero carbon emission. Companies, such as Honeywell Aerospace, are also committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2035. In November 2021, Bell Textron Inc. announced that Bell 525 completed its first flight utilizing sustainable aviation fuel. Boeing and Airbus have recently announced that by 2030, their aircraft will fly 100% on SAF. The US and European governments are encouraged to produce SAFs. These factors are propelling the aircraft engine MRO market substantially.

Expected Future Delivery of Commercial Aircraft – An Opportunity in Aircraft Engine MRO Market

With the increase in air traffic and aircraft demand, air carriers are boosting their aircraft delivery. The demand for new airlines is not just coming from existing aircraft re-establishing their fleet but also from new low–cost aircraft entering the market. A repressed interest of leisure travelers being more cost-sensitive post-pandemic, decreased interest in business travel, and the adaptability of the minimal expense aircraft plan of action are surging the demand for MRO services. Moreover, according to the Boeing and Airbus forecasts, more than 40,800 commercial aircraft are expected to be delivered by the end of 2042 which further drives the deployment of new engines into those aircraft production. This will further increase the overall aircraft fleet globally and generate the demand for engine MRO as well as market vendors in the coming years.

Aircraft Engine MRO Market Share Analysis by Geography

The geographic scope of the aircraft engine MRO market report is mainly divided into five regions: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South America.

In 2023, Asia Pacific accounted for a major share of the global aircraft engine MRO market followed by North America and Europe. Asia's economy has been fueled by a diverse range of income levels and a fast-expanding middle class. This resulted in strong sales growth in the region's fast-growing economies, such as India and China. APAC is predicted to be the market with the most prospects for aircraft MRO service providers. The region contains several developing economies that are leading the way in a range of industries, such as aerospace, military & defense, and technology. Many growing economies in APAC are seeking regulatory investment to improve their technologies. This would eventually spur the development and use of new technologies for aircraft integration. Several airlines in APAC, such as Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines, are developing their in-house maintenance capabilities. Pratt & Whitney, a US-based aerospace firm, added MRO capability for its PW100G-JM geared turbofan at its Eagle Services Asia plant in Singapore in 2019. Over the years, this plant has been overhauling Pratt & Whitney GTF engines. With the launch of the PW100G-JM engine, the facility is expected to see a significant increase in revenue from various aircraft operators who use the PW100G-JM. Additionally, the rising deployment of retrofitting technologies for improved aircraft and the burgeoning adoption of blockchain technology are among the major factors driving the growth of the aircraft engine MRO market. Also, the growth of the market in Asia Pacific is attributed to the increasing aircraft fleet owing to the rising passenger traffic; increasing spending on military aircraft propelled by growing defense budget; and the ongoing projects of the development of commercial, general aviation, and military aircraft.
