The aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services refer to maintain, repair, and overhaul services of aircraft, including helicopters, gliders, drones, aircraft turbines, aircraft engines, and rocket engines. The aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market includes sales of spare parts to end consumers by aircraft MRO providers that are used during the aircraft MRO activities.
The main types of aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul services are commercial aircraft MRO services; commercial helicopters MRO services; commercial gliders and drones MRO services; aircraft turbines MRO services; aircraft engines MRO services; and rocket engine MRO services. Rocket engine MRO services include maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for rocket engines. The aircraft is divided into the engine, cabin interior, airframe, avionics, and others, and the various sizes include wide-body, narrow-body, regional, and others. The services are used for an annual maintenance contract, individual projects, and others.
The aircraft maintenance, repair and overhauling services market research report is one of a series of new reports from The Business Research Company that provides aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market statistics, including aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services industry global market size, regional shares, competitors with an aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market share, detailed aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market segments, market trends and opportunities, and any further data you may need to thrive in the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services industry. This aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market research report delivers a complete perspective of everything you need, with an in-depth analysis of the current and future scenario of the industry.
The global aircraft maintenance, repair and overhauling services market grew from $56.46 billion in 2022 to $67.47 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.5%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The aircraft maintenance, repair and overhauling services market is expected to grow to $76.87 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 3.3%.
Rapid advances in wireless technology and miniaturization (which refers to designing smaller components for equipment) are expected to drive innovation in the defense market, thus driving the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, technologies such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and big data analytics are being used during the manufacturing process, resulting in higher productivity, lower operating costs, and higher margins. Lower operating costs lead to higher margins. This allows companies to expand production and increase product portfolios, thus driving the growth of the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market.
Rising cyber-attacks on the confidential data transferred through sensitive paths in the value chain of the aerospace industry are expected to be a restraint on the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market in the forecast period. Companies involved in the value chain of aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services exchange a lot of confidential data on specifications, technology, and performance of equipment or services to enhance collaborations on design, development, and support. The data exchanged within the supply chain can be stolen and used by unethical competitors to copy products and reduce market prices for the products. To eliminate the threat, companies in the aerospace industry invest in next-generation cyber security solutions to protect their data from advanced cyber-attacks. For example, leading players such as Lockheed Martin are investing in developing cyber security solutions with offensive and defensive capabilities. Cyber-attacks by governments of enemy countries or competitors are expected to hinder the growth of the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market.
Digital thread and digital twin are two interlinked concepts trending in the aircraft parts manufacturing, repair, and maintenance market. The digital thread is a communication framework that allows connected data flow throughout the lifecycle and across functions such as design, engineering, production, and maintenance, providing an integrated, authoritative, up-to-the-minute view of the asset's data that can be accessed at anytime, anywhere. A digital twin includes design specifications and engineering models describing its geometry, materials, parts, and behavior, which give a digital model of a particular product. Both concepts analyze data captured digitally from end-to-end throughout a product's lifecycle, beginning with design and extending through maintenance, repair, and overhaul to improve the performance of future programs. In aircraft maintenance complexity, this helps in maintaining digital records, minimizing downtime, and streamlining regulatory compliance.
Major companies in the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhauling services market include General Electric Company, The Boeing Company, Rolls-Royce Holdings plc, Honeywell International Inc., Lufthansa Group, Safran SA, MTU Aero Engines AG, General Dynamics, BBA Aviation plc and Bombardier Inc.
