With the use of additive manufacturing, MRO companies can develop spare parts and complete repairs within time.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the higher replacement cost. MRO is influenced by improved technology and increased maintenance intervals of new generation aircraft, particularly in usage of composites and smart electronics. Also, the cost associated with engine and component MRO is high because it requires greater service expertise as well as greater OEM control.

The key players in the Global Commercial and Military Aircraft MRO Market are Airbus Group, HAECO, Honeywell International, Lockheed Martin, ST Aerospace while other prominent vendors include Air Works, FL Technics Jet JSC, GMF AeroAsia, Lufthansa Technik.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
