Aircraft Engine MRO Market Trends


An increase in air travel is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for aircraft engine MRO is being driven by the rising number of air travel. A number of new MRO support centers have been opened in those countries in recent years. In the MRO market for aircraft engines, regional companies (Tier-II or Tier-III suppliers) have increased their presence. Growth in foreign trade between countries has also increased the frequency of cargo aircraft. Therefore, due to multiple factors, such as the development of next-generation engines and rapid expansion of fleets, timely inspections or repairs of airplanes are essential for optimal efficiency and safety. In addition to increased constraints on  flight regulations, the aircraft engine MRO industry is driven by the need to maintain aircraft engines and engine components effectively.


Additionally, in recent years, the most fuel-efficient engine on the market, the leading edge aviation propulsion (LEAP) engine, has propelled aircraft engine MRO. The aircraft engine MRO market is also anticipated to grow due to the need to maintain engines and components properly. The  aircraft fleet is expected to reach over 38,000 by 2028, which means the  aircraft maintenance market is projected to grow to $115 billion by 2028.


Aircraft engine MRO software (maintenance, repair and overhaul) investments are also expected to create new business opportunities. Maintenance tracking software, logbook tracking software, flight time tracking software, service bulletin management, maintenance schedule software, budget forecasting software, electronic task card management software, and work order management software are among the features of aircraft MRO software.


For instance, India observed significant foreign direct investments in different sectors in May 2021, including aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul industries. Thus, investment and acquisitions are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in future years. Thus, driving the aircraft engine MRO market revenue.


Aircraft Engine MRO Market Segment Insights


Aircraft Engine MRO Engine Type Insights


The  aircraft engine MRO market segmentation, based on engine type, includes turbine engines and piston engines. The turbine engine segment dominated the aircraft engine MRO market, accounting for 58% of market revenue. A turbine engine can be divided into three categories turboprops, turbofans, and turboshafts. The demand for turboprop and turboshaft aircraft and the aging turboprop fleet drive growth in the aircraft engine MRO market. A joint partnership between engine suppliers and local industries is creating a framework for providing fleet repair services to governments.


Aircraft Engine MRO Aircraft Type Insights


The  aircraft engine MRO market segmentation, based on aircraft type, includes fixed-wing aircraft and rotary-wing aircraft. The fixed-wing category generated the most income (73.5%). These aircraft have integrated control surfaces, such as ailerons, rudders, and elevators, rather than vertical lift rotors. As these aircraft offer several advantages over rotary-wing aircraft, such as endurance, wide area coverage, high flight speed, and greater passenger carrying capacity, they are typically used for long-distance travel by airlines and military forces. Furthermore, fixed-wing aircraft are in increasing demand ly due to a rapid increase in air passenger traffic. Therefore, the increasing demand for fixed-wing aircraft will also drive the growth of the fixed-wing aircraft segment in the  aircraft engine MRO market.


Aircraft Engine MRO Application Insights


The  aircraft engine MRO market data, based on application, includes civil aviation and military aviation. The civil aviation segment dominated the aircraft engine MRO market, accounting for 75.9% of market revenue (16.8 billion). There is a larger fleet of commercial aircraft than military aircraft, and second, maintenance costs are higher than for general aviation planes. Several new agreements have been signed in the last few years between airlines and MRO service providers for the maintenance of aircraft engines. For instance, SR Technics signed an agreement in November 2021 with Vietjet Air to provide MRO services to the engines onboard Vietjet's Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 aircraft. As part of a joint venture between Vietjet and SR Technics, the company will provide engine maintenance, component replacement, component repair, and technical training and set up a new aviation training center for USD 150 million.
