Commercial Aircraft Aftermarket Parts Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increased Requirement for Timely Maintenance of AircraftsMaintenance of aircraft carriers can cost billions, so it is mandatory to have a proper and timely maintenance system that can save time and money. For instance, 27% of the demand for airplane MRO in Africa in 2017 was for component maintenance. Therefore, growing concerns for timely maintenance which can prevent any form of aviation accidents are driving the market growth rapidly as the aircraft operators prefer repairing the parts on time.
  • Increasing Age of Aircraft Fleet -   To avoid debt for the purchase of new aircraft, a number of small operators in the aviation sector are using old aircraft. In order to maintain the safety of the aircraft fleet, the market's growth is being driven by concern among operators about aging fleets through consideration of airworthiness for replacement, alteration, and modification at relatively low costs. This factor is expected to escalate the market growth during the forecast period.
  •  Increase in the Number of Retired Aircraft to Facilitate the Used Serviceable Materials (USM) Airlines are restructuring their fleets in order to cope with this financial impact by considering the discontinuation of aircraft earlier. As a result, since 2020 there has been an important growth in the disintegration, dismantling, and recycling of passenger aircraft. Thus, this factor is increasing the demand for the Used Serviceable Materials (USM) domain. The USM is expected to increase significantly with a rate of 68.2% through 2022, despite suffering a significant fall in 2020. Also, governments in many regions are encouraging the use of sustainable aviation fuels, in order to reduce carbon emissions. Besides USM parts are significantly contributing to the market growth.


  • Rising Concern for Inventory Costs among Airlines – The increasing inventory costs related to the storage of spare parts are disturbing their operational expenditure. In addition to this, other factors such as growing aircraft fuel costs, and increasing additional operational spending are levitating the concern amongst airline operators to minimize costs. Such factors may hinder the market growth of market.
  • Issues Associated with the Management of Facilities will Disrupt the Supply Chain
  • Shortage of Resources

Commercial Aircraft Aftermarket Parts Segmentation

Parts (Maintenance Repair & Operation Parts, MRO and Routable Replacement Parts)

The MRO and Routable Replacement Parts segment is expected to hold the largest market share of 33% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for modernized aircraft and the growing need for timely maintenance for such advanced aircraft. Moreover, MRO assets management helps in the reduction of storage space requirements. With the use of a modern industrial maintenance strategy, aircraft owners may manage warranties more successfully. These factors are escalating the market growth of MRO parts.

Aircraft (Narrow-Body, Wide-Body, Regional Jet)

Narrow-body holds the largest market share owing to the rising demand for domestic flights with low-cost charter fleets. By far the largest engine producer in the world, CFM International had 71% of the market for narrow-body aircraft engines as of May 2019. The increasing number of domestic flights is increasing the number of aircraft maintenance services. Moreover, the seat width in the narrow-bodied aircraft is much more comfortable than that of the wide-body aircraft. In addition to this, the fuel consumption of narrow-bodied aircraft is less than other broader parts which is likely to drive the market growth of narrow-body aircraft.
