Military aviation MRO market to record a CAGR of 3.49%

Press Release   •   Jul 24, 2012 10:53 BST

The military aviation MRO market is expected to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.49% over the next decade, to increase from a market value of $28 billion in 2012 to reach $39.4 billion by 2022.

The market consists of four categories: Attack Aircraft MRO, Transport Aircraft MRO, Rotorcraft MRO and UAV MRO.

A significant number of countries are investing in the development of their domestic military aviation MRO capabilities by establishing strategic alliances and technology transfer agreements with established global manufacturers.

North America is the biggest military aviation MRO market at 49% of total military aviation MRO spending followed by Europe at 22%. The vast majority of North American military MRO originates from the United States, primarily driven by the region's modernisation programs and the overseas war against global terrorism.

Though the global military aviation MRO market is rising, it is currently facing a significant challenge in terms of skilled manpower to carry out the work efficiently.

This shortage is now restricting companies in the amount of work they can take on which is primarily due to the lack of in-house training programs which is further attributed to the MRO industry moving away from traditional apprenticeship programs in an effort to cut costs.
