Analyst Perspective:

The global aircraft MRO market size has been segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). The global air passenger traffic is increasing at a constant pace, which has forced the airlines to increase their flight movements and introduce new aircraft. Aircraft MRO activities are essential in keeping up component availability, consistency, and quality. Airline operators depend on MRO services to ensure the safety of the aircraft and enhance fuel efficiency. The aircraft MRO market has become a viable business in the aviation industry since original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) mainly focus on the development of aircraft. In most of the regions of the world, economic performance has been remarkable over the last few years, largely due to better consumer buying power, growing equity markets, and industry consolidation. In spite of Brexit and various other trade barriers, the global aircraft MRO market have remained relatively stable.

The aviation industry, however, is growing and will continue to grow, owing to the ever-expanding global middle class. According to the report published by IATA in December 2022, passenger traffic recovered from 41.7% of 2019 volumes in 2021 and further increased by 68.5% in 2022. International passenger traffic more than doubled, with 152.7% YoY growth in 2022. Hence, the demand for the maintenance and repair of aircraft components will increase. Growth in the aviation industry would be more concentrated in APAC, particularly in India and China. In the near future, the Rest of APAC countries, such as Singapore and Malaysia, would be the major global aircraft MRO market, and APAC would be the new center of the global aviation industry. China is concentrating on building new airports.

For instance, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) aims to build 216 new airports by 2035 to meet the growing demands for air travel, which will have a direct impact on the aircraft MRO market in a positive way.

According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) analysis, in 2022, US airlines carried 194 million more passengers than in 2021, which was 30% year-to-year growth. The European aircraft MRO market would experience sluggish growth as the aircraft fleets from the region are sent to APAC for maintenance and repair due to low labor costs and heavy infrastructure spending, especially in China and Southeast Asian countries. Further, the MEA and SAM are experiencing sluggish growth. The growth outlook of the aircraft MRO market in all the major geographic regions is estimated to be quite positive during the forecast period.

Market Overview:

The maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services are an essential and unavoidable aspect of every business. A proper MRO of an aircraft or its component can help businesses avoid significant risks to their survival. Thus, aviation industry players majorly focus on creating appropriate business processes and infrastructure to support industry growth. The rising demand for air travel worldwide is encouraging 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 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. 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 resulting in the retirement of older planes across the globe. Further, the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), and other advanced technologies into aircraft is demanding a high level of maintenance services, which is further boosting the aircraft MRO market growth.

Market Driver:

Increasing Air Travel is Boosting Aircraft MRO Market

Airlines are maximizing the utilization of their aircraft to meet the growing passenger demand. This means that aircraft spend more time in the air and require more frequent maintenance checks to ensure their airworthiness. As more people choose air travel, airlines are operating more flights with shorter turnaround times between departures. This increased flight frequency places greater demands on aircraft maintenance to ensure safe and reliable operations. In 2021, the European Union (EU) experienced a significant rebound in air travel as the total number of passengers reached 373 million. This figure reflects a remarkable increase of 34.9% compared to the previous year, 2020. The highest surge in air passenger numbers was observed in Croatia, which experienced a remarkable increase of 129.4% in comparison with the previous year. Following closely, Cyprus and Greece recorded substantial growth rates of 104.8% and 85.9%, respectively. This surge in passenger numbers, particularly in countries such as Croatia, Cyprus, and Greece, highlights the growing demand for air travel and the subsequent need for more frequent and efficient maintenance and repair services to ensure the safety and reliability of aircraft.
