Aviation Software Market Trends

Growing aircraft fleet demand for advanced MRO is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for aircraft is driven by the growing number of individuals taking flight sky. Airways everywhere are working to increase their aircraft fleet size. Additional aircraft will be used, boosting the market in the next decade. Due to rising air travel demand and an expanding aircraft fleet, the MRO industry is predicted to expand steadily over the next decade. About 30% of an airline's operating expense goes into aviation MRO software. The market could expand if the increasing passenger numbers continue, with most aircraft maintenance costs concentrated on the engines.

Additionally, airframe, component, and line maintenance may contribute similarly to operators' maintenance expense split. Now that servicing their planes is a top priority, airlines can pick from various original equipment manufacturers, independent maintenance, repair, overhaul facilities, and individual parts suppliers. Various aircraft operators use aviation MRO software systems to facilitate paperless operations, shorten maintenance turnaround times (TATs), and undertake predictive maintenance. Instead of original equipment manufacturers or airlines, MRO businesses make up the bulk of MRO software users. MRO businesses have recently used software-based MRO approaches to serve their clients better. Increases in the number of MROs being constructed to meet the needs of a growing air fleet are driving industry expansion.

For instance, Middle Georgia Regional Airport in Macon, Georgia, is home to MHI RJ Aviation Group's (MHIRJ) newest maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility, expanding the company's presence in the North American market. In addition, the MRO service provider's West Virginia Service Center expansion project's Phase 1 was finished in October 2022. As a result, it is anticipated that demand for aviation software will increase throughout the projection period due to the rising aircraft fleet. Thus, the driving factor is aviation software market revenue.

Aviation Software Market Segment Insights

Aviation Software Application Insights

The aviation software market segmentation, based on application, includes airports and airlines. In 2022, the airlines segment led the aviation software market in revenue because many operators subcontract their maintenance work to other companies. Therefore, this market is expected to increase at a moderate rate. The rise of air travel and air cargo volume worldwide are the main forces behind this market segment. The expansion of low-cost airlines is primarily to blame for the proliferation of airplanes.
