Frequently Asked Questions

The global aviation industry is growing at an unprecedented rate, recording substantial number of production volumes of military and commercial aircraft fleet. In the past few years, the commercial aircraft fleet has seen tremendous growth due to the influx of new low-cost carriers (LCCs) and fleet expansion strategies adopted by the full-service carriers (FSCs). Commercial aviation industry is predicted to upsurge in the near future due to the rising air travel passengers and aircraft procurement. Air passenger traffic in North America, Europe, and APAC: has been surging with time, which is compelling the demand for commercial aircraft. Thus, the growth in demand for commercial aircraft is one of the key factors driving the aircraft wire & cable market.
The North America region led the aircraft wire & cable market. The North American region comprises of the US, Canada and Mexico, it is characterized by high disposable individual incomes, higher standards of living, and rapid technological advancements in the arena of aerospace engineering. North America has the largest fleet of commercial and defense aircrafts in the world. Boeing and Bombardier are the two largest North American multinational manufacturers of commercial aircraft. General Dynamics Corporation, Honeywell International Inc., and Raytheon Technologies Corporation are among the major aircraft component suppliers that have their bases in the North American region. Further, the presence of some of the major defense aircraft suppliers such as Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, and General Dynamics Corporation presents a tremendous opportunity for the market players to look upon. Huge volumes of commercial and military fleets in operations in the domestic as well as international arena coupled with a high average passenger mile flown value in the region propel the requirements for aircraft components.
Economic growth, increasing passengers, and growing aviation infrastructure spending across APAC are the factors driving the growth of the aircraft MRO industry in the region. According to the International Air Transport Association, the total number of new passengers would increase over the next 20 years. It would further increase the demand for MRO activities for upgrading the aircraft fleet. Rising middle-class travelers, especially in APAC: countries, such as India, China, and Singapore, is the main factor contributing to air travel growth, subsequently increasing the need for aircraft MRO services in APAC. The governments in the countries mentioned above and other emerging economies support the growth of aviation MRO services, as it is a crucial strategy to support the economic goals by focusing on enhancing the aircraft MRO activities. The constantly evolving MRO activities pose a potential opportunity for the aircraft wires and cables manufacturers and distributors to market their products to various MRO service providers in the emerging economies.
