Aircraft MRO Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022. The air transport segment garnered the highest revenue share in the global aircraft MRO market.

The maintenance, repair, overhaul, inspection or modification of an aircraft or aircraft component refers to aircraft MRO. It has emerged as an indispensable activity of air assets in the aviation industry. It is a multi- billion dollar industry growing at a notable rate year-on-year. Globally, a major proportion of engine MRO is outsourced, with a lot to play for. Airlines in the most developed regions (North America, Western Europe and Asia-Pacific) outsource their engine MRO work by providers from within their own region. Several new MRO service centres have been setup in such countries, increasing the participation of regional companies (tier-II or tier-III suppliers) in the field of aircraft MRO. However, in the developing regions, airlines are much more likely to use foreign MRO providers. A trend that inevitably seems to increase in the coming years, is the growing number of OEM-MRO-led joint ventures focused on next-generation engines. Lufthansa Technik and GE Aviation are teaming up to focus on such projects.

Market Determinants

The growth of global aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) market is mainly driven by more complex components requiring higher parts cost, per MRO activity. Despite the lowering demand, frequency and cost of aircraft MRO due to aircraft retirements, fewer purchases, advent of reliable components, and on-conditional repairs, a moderate growth is expected during the forecast period, owing to the declining labor costs and an increase in engine parts costs. The market players are anticipated to witness many opportunities emanating from the influx of new aircrafts, engines and components into the global fleet, while service providers extend older aircraft and engine variants’ life cycles.
