Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Insights

Global Aircraft Line Maintenance Market size was valued at USD 18.34 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 19.3 billion in 2023 to USD 28.73 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

Replacement, defect correction, examination, overhaul, the implementation of upgrades, compliance with airworthiness directives, and repair are all operations that must be performed to ensure the continued functioning of an aircraft part or an entire aircraft. To maintain appropriate and safe operations during flying, aircraft maintenance is subject to strict regulations. To control maintenance activities, personnel, and inspection systems, national aviation authorities must put International Civil Aviation Organization standards into practice. An aircraft's lifespan can be significantly increased through proper maintenance.

Increased attention to the use of aircraft maintenance services has been brought on by an increase in the number of aviation accidents. In turn, this is projected to fuel the global market for aircraft maintenance. Additional factors that are expected to fuel the market's growth include fast urbanization, significant R&D in the aviation sector, an increase in terminal construction in developing countries, and the adoption of strict government regulations on passenger comfort.

US Aircraft Line Maintenance Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

The global aircraft line maintenance market segmentation is based on type, service, aircraft type, and Region. Based on type the aircraft line maintenance market is segmented into transit checks and routine checks. Based on service the aircraft line maintenance market is segmented into component replacement & rigging service, defect rectification service, engine & APU service, aircraft on ground (AOG) service, and line station setup & management service. Based on aircraft type the aircraft line maintenance market is segmented into narrow body aircraft (NBA), wide body aircraft (WBA), very large aircraft (VLA), regional aircraft (RA), and others. Based on region the global aircraft line maintenance market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Analysis by Type

In 2021, the routine check segment held the largest share of the global aircraft line maintenance market. In upcoming years, it is predicted that the routine check sector will expand at a faster rate than the transit check sector. Service checks, night inspections, pre-flight, post-flight, and regular inspections are the main types of routine inspections. Oil or other fluids, such as hydraulic fluid, engine oil, start oil, and generator drive fluid, must be changed in the aircraft after 155 hours of flight time. During the projected timeframe, the market for aircraft will surely result in a requirement for routine inspection services due to a rise in passenger load, air traffic, and more flight routes.

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Analysis by Service

The component replacement & rigging service sector accounted for the largest market share and is expected to dominate the aircraft line maintenance market in the forthcoming years. The expansion of the component replacement & rigging service sector of the aircraft line maintenance market is being driven by the rising requirement from different airlines for these services as they upgrade their existing legacy aircraft systems. The component replacement and rigging service category has been further broken down into the following subcategories: structural repairs, replacement and removal of landing gear, windscreen replacements, and avionics repairs.

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Analysis by Aircraft Type

The aircraft line maintenance market is expected to develop at the fastest rate throughout the projected timeline for the wide-body aircraft type sector. The growing delivery of new wide-body aircraft around the world is responsible for the expansion of this market sector. Wide body aircraft are essentially jet carriers with a fuselage that is large enough to hold two passenger walkways. These are twin-aisle airplanes with at least 7 seats in front of each other. The wide-body aircraft type section of the aircraft line maintenance market includes aircraft series such as the A330, A350, B767, B787, and B777 series.

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Dynamics

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Driver

  • During the forecast years, it is expected that increased demand for aviation maintenance would propel the worldwide aircraft line maintenance market. This is due to the need to maintain aircraft's optimal performance and adhere to strict regulatory standards.
  • In the coming years, the market for aircraft line maintenance is expected to be driven by a rise in the number of sophisticated latest-generation aircraft. The market for aircraft line maintenance is expected to grow during the forecast years due in large part to continued investments in the construction of aviation infrastructure and the expansion of the existing aircraft capacity.

Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Restraint

  • One of the main reasons why aircraft deliveries are taking longer than expected is the backlog of orders with aircraft manufacturers. In addition to outstanding orders, the early 2020 COVID-19 pandemic was a severe hindrance for the whole aviation sector, resulting in enormous losses, order cancellations, and delayed aircraft delivery and will hamper the growth of the aircraft line maintenance market.
