(MENAFN- America News Hour)
The Aircraft Engine MRO Market was valued at about USD 37.24 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow to approximately USD 54.71 billion in 2031 with a CAGR of approximately 5.7% during the forecast period (2022-2031).
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aircraft engine MRO market has been significant. As a result of the large number of stored aircraft and lower utilization, aircraft engine MRO demand significantly dropped in 2020. However, as the airlines are slowly increasing their fleet utilization rate, the demand is expected to recover to 2019 levels by 2023.
The rapid fleet expansion plans of the airlines and military forces are anticipated to further boost the growth of the aircraft engine MRO market during the forecast period.

The aging military aircraft fleet in some countries will generate significant demand as some of these countries have plans to extend the service life of these aging aircraft due to lack of defense funding.
The introduction of newer generation engines in new aircraft is anticipated to further increase the aircraft engine MRO demand as the new engines will have more expensive material requirements compared to the older generation aircraft.
Key Market Trends
Commercial Aviation Segment Dominates the Market in Terms of Market Share
The commercial aviation segment currently has the highest market share and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This is majorly due to the large fleet of commercial aviation compared to military aviation and the high cost of engine maintenance cost compared to general aviation. Several new contracts have been signed in the recent years for the maintenance of aircraft engines between airlines and MRO service providers. For instance, in December 2019, Japan Transocean Air signed a 15-year engine Maintenance-By-the-Hour (MBHTM) agreement with ST Engineering to provide a wide range of engine MRO solutions like on-wing services, off-wing maintenance support, and technical support to the Boeing 737NG fleet of the airline from 2020. In addition to this, the MRO service providers are also expanding their presence in various countries to cater to the growing demand for commercial engine MRO services. In this regard, in October 2020, Lufthansa Technik opened a new mobile engine services facility in Dublin. The new 6,400 sq. ft. facility began providing services to CFM56-5B and the CFM56-7B engines in Airbus A320 classic and Boeing 737 family aircraft, respectively. Such expansions are expected to accelerate the growth of the segment in the coming years.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Generate the Highest Demand During the Forecast Period
Asia-Pacific has experienced a significant growth in the total aircraft fleet over the past decade which has increased the demand for engine MRO services. This has resulted in several MRO service providers from the US and Europe to establish their maintenance facilities in this region. Also, in order to reduce the overseas maintenance cost, several airlines have partnered with engine MRO service providers to develop in-house capabilities. In January 2021, MTU Maintenance, the MRO division of the MTU Aero Engines, signed a five-year contract with Air Sial, a new Pakistan-based airline for the maintenance, repair, and overhaul of the V2500 engines onboard it's fleet of three Airbus A320 aircraft. The contract also includes the provision of engine trend monitoring, on-site services, and lease engine support along with technical training to the airline.

In addition to this, the majority of the armed forces in the region are currently using aging military aircraft. Due to this, there has been an increased demand for maintenance services from the military sector. For instance, since 2019, the Aero lnternational in collaboration with Boeing Defense Australia (BDA) has been providing repair services to CFM56 engines of six Boeing 737 Wedgetail aircraft operated by the Royal Australian Air Force. Such long-term agreements are expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
The prominent players in the aircraft engine MRO market are Lufthansa Technik, Rolls-Royce Holding PLC, Raytheon Technologies Corporation, General Electric Company, and Safran SA. The major engine MRO providers are entering into long-term partnerships or forming joint ventures to grow their engine MRO customers. For instance, in February 2021, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Rolls-Royce signed an agreement to collaborate on expanding the supply chain for the civil and defense aerospace market as well as establish an authorized maintenance center for Adour Mk871 engines. Moreover, the use of advanced technology for providing maintenance services may help these companies attract new customers by reducing their maintenance costs. On that note, in November 2020, Rolls Royce announced that the company is investing in Reinstate project to develop 20 emerging technologies (like deployment of snake robots into engines to access and repair complex parts and embedded cameras among others) aimed to enhance the engine maintenance processes while reducing airline disruption and environmental impacts. However, the long-term contracts of the established players with the armed forces and airlines may act as a barrier for new players to enter the market.
