Aircraft Refurbishing Market

Aircraft Refurbishment Market Mainly Driven by Need for Installation of Advanced Components for Better Operational Efficiency: Fact.MR

Published : 22 Oct 2021 Industry: Automotive

The global aircraft refurbishing market is valued at US$ 4.2 Mn in 2021, with stable long-term projections, according to latest insights by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider. The report estimates the market to expand at around 5.8% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

The market is driven by increase in use of latest technologies such as IFES (in- flight entertainment systems), customized passenger seats, and aesthetic aircraft interiors, due to increase in air passenger traffic, especially across North America and Europe as well as emerging regions such as Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

The global aviation industry had to suffer huge losses during the COVID-19 pandemic, mainly due to restrictions on air travel around the world. Closure of airports for domestic as well as international travel impacted the aviation industry negatively during lockdowns. As a result, many maintenance and repair service providers suffered losses.

However, the situation is improving as the months go by. Aircraft repair & maintenance services have a huge impact on weight, balance, flight characteristics, and many other features of the aircraft, which is accelerating the market for MRO service providers. Increase in aircraft interior refurbishing by leading commercial airlines due to rise in air passenger traffic is one of the crucial factors driving aircraft refurbishing market growth.
