Commercial Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Market

In the past decade, the commercial aircraft MRO industry has steadily gained altitude. Improving economic conditions has fueled the growth in air travel and therefore aircraft usage. To cater to the growing demand, new aircraft are being procured along with the introduction of new routes. Several airlines instead of procuring new aircraft are opting to upgrade their existing aircraft fleet which requires overhauling and thus propelling the growth of the MRO industry.

Increasing Customer Preference towards LCC Airlines

Low-cost carriers are expanding at a fast pace in the airline's industry. Many profitable airlines in the world like that of Southwest Airlines, Ryan Air, and Indigo are low-cost carriers. Low-cost carriers occupy more than 1/4th of the Middle East and Africa airline market, and they are well poised on their way to occupy 1/3rd of the market share in a few years. Thereby, passengers who are willing to pay a substantial amount of money per ticket to travel via full-cost airlines are expecting more facilities, and even regular passengers of full-cost airlines sometimes shift towards low-cost airlines because of reduced fares and little difference in amenities offered. This trend gives an indication of the general state of full-service airlines. With such tough competition from low-cost players, full-fare carriers are trying to add value to the services they provided to customers. To maintain the growing LCC flights in operating conditions, necessary MRO services should be available thereby driving the aircraft MRO market.

Segmentation by Geography

The global market for commercial aircraft MRO will experience the highest growth in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East region. This is mainly due to the growing demand for aircraft fleet modernization in these regions. In January 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Airbus and China Airlines. Under the MoU, Airbus will provide China Airlines with support in the development of the airline’s maintenance, engineering and technical training capabilities in Taiwan. Airbus will support the carrier’s maintenance capabilities for all Airbus aircraft types operated by China Airlines which includes A320, A350 XWB, and A330/A340 families.
