    Market Highlights

    Aging aircraft fleet, early aircraft retirements led by the pandemic, and increasing focus of major airlines to influx used serviceable materials in their maintenance plans to drive down operational costs are the factors, leading to surplus supply of used serviceable material (USM) to the airlines in the aviation MRO market. The low cost of USM is the biggest factor behind the exponential growth in the market. A USM part can bring down the cost by 60% to 80% of an OEM new part. On average a commercial aircraft retires after 25 to 30 years of its service life.

    The sudden outburst of the pandemic has led to the massive decline in the aviation industry across regions with thousands of planes were grounded due to reduced air travel demand. The graver impact of the pandemic was registered across the supply chain including the level of components. Air Transport USM, a sizeable market, could not escape from such trends and witnessed a colossal decline (-41%+ in 2020) amid the pandemic, quite aligned with the decline in aircraft production. During the pandemic, trading of USM parts has been stalled with the cancellation of several transactions related to the purchase of spare parts. However, with the resumption of air travel, as well as the focus of airlines on reducing operational costs, the market is rebounding in the year 2021 with the ramp-up in confidence. Despite suffering a huge decline in 2020, the aircraft USM market is set to grow enormously with a rate of 68+% through 2022, driven by a large number of aircraft being retired early due to the pandemic. In the year 2020, more than 2,500 aircraft were retired compared to an average retirement of 1,100 aircraft in recent years.  Overall, the aircraft USM market is likely to grow at a promising CAGR of 4.1% in the long run to reach US$ 9.5 Billion in 2027.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the aircraft type, the aircraft USM market is segmented as narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, turboprop, and regional aircraft. After being impacted by the pandemic, the wide-body aircraft is expected to rebound at the fastest pace in the market during the forecast period, owing to the gradual opening up of long-haul travel coupled with increasing preference for more efficient wide-body aircraft programs, such as A350 and B787, by replacing older A330ceos and B777s with them. In addition, airlines will be laser-focused on decreasing material costs as air travel resumes. With USM becoming a more acceptable lower-cost alternative to new OEM components, substantial demand for USM is projected in the sector, especially in the near future

    Based on the product type, the market is segmented as engine, components, and airframe. Engine is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing product type in the market during the forecast period, mainly due to increasing demand from engine MROs for wide-body engine parts.  

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft USMs during the forecast period, owing to its largest fleet size. Emerging economies in Asia have seen the fastest fleet expansion for several years, which will eventually make the region a market leader. North America is also likely to create sizeable opportunities in the coming five years, driven by the macroeconomic recovery that will affect both, leisure and business travel markets.
