The aircraft maintenance tooling market was valued at US$ 3,177.70 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 4,340.71 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2020 to 2027.

The aircraft manufacturing industry across the globe is witnessing huge growth owing to the mounting demand for commercial aircraft. Growing population and mounting disposable incomes in developing countries, including India, are significant factors driving the demand for various aircraft types. Rising demand for air travel worldwide encourages aircraft manufacturers, such as Airbus and Boeing, to increase their production volumes and offer maintenance services for these aircraft as well. With the constant growth in the air traffic, carriers are more liable to maintain the optimum condition of the aircraft so as to extend their life span; otherwise, they would have to procure new aircraft. The cost of procurement of a new aircraft is much higher than the cost for the maintenance of the existing aircraft. Different airports across the world are introducing advanced development processes to further boost the efficiency of the aircraft. Increasing integration of technological systems for capturing real-time data of the health of the aircraft and meet the requirements of next-generation aircraft may lead to the growth of the aircraft maintenance tooling market in the near future.

Several engine development programs are being adopted, owing to the mounting spending toward aircraft modernization, norms and regulations, and environmental concerns for the retirement of older fleets. Most of the engine manufacturers are robustly focusing on the development of economical and efficient engines for new aircraft fleets. The procurement of advanced aircraft parts is expected to double in the next few years, which is driving the retirement of older planes across the globe. Further, the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), and other advanced technologies into the aircraft is demanding high level of maintenance services, which is further boosting the aircraft maintenance tooling market.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Aircraft Maintenance Tooling Market

The US is the most affected country in North America with thousands of COVID-19 infected individuals facing severe health conditions across the country. The continuous growth of confirmed cases has led the government to impose lockdown across the nation’s borders during Q2 of 2020. The majority of the manufacturing plants are either temporarily shut or are operating with minimum staff; the supply chain of components and parts is disrupted. These are a few of the critical issues faced by the North American manufacturers.
Since the US has the largest density of aircraft OEMs, component manufacturers, and airports, the outbreak has severely affected the production and revenue generation of each. The lower number of manufacturing staff has resulted in lesser production quantity. The suspension of air travel resulted in loss for the airlines, which restricted the demand for airline associated services. This factor stalled the revenue generation stream of the aircraft maintenance tooling market, which is hindering the growth of the aircraft maintenance tooling market.

As of March 31, 2020, Boeing produced 10,000 737 commercial jets, which is the first jet to reach this landmark. In 2019, Airbus delivered a massive number of commercial aircraft, which would boost the production of commercial aircraft in the market. Hence, emerging production rate by these top companies is expected to drive the demand for commercial aircraft across the world. Increasing integration of several equipment in the commercial aircraft, such as avionics systems and engine control and monitoring that operate at peak efficiency is demanding the deployment of maintenance tooling for enhanced operation. Thus, rising integration of advanced equipment in the aircraft demands the timely maintenance and replacement of these equipment for proper functioning of the commercial aircraft.

Tool Type-Based Market Insights

Based on tool type, the aircraft maintenance tooling market is segmented into speed handles, wrenches, safety wire pliers, vibration meters, metalworking tools, and others. The speed handle segment dominates the market. A speed handle enables technicians to spin and eradicate a screw head swiftly with one hand while the other hand is handling other repairs. It is one of the crucial tools, particularly when repairing a high-end engine with numerous screws. One can also offer speed handles with sockets in order to tighten or loosen a nut or bolt. Aircraft Spruce, a US-based company, offers speed handles to fix a nut or bolt.
