Advent of MRO services and AI set to propel power by the hour market size

Posted on

Technological advancements such as AI and AR/VR are expected to bolster power by the hour market share during the assessment period of 2019-2025. Dynamic growth witnessed in power by the hour market is mainly credited to unprecedented demand for passenger traffic and cargo movement from APAC countries, along with sublime aircraft deliveries across the globe.

Soaring demand for fuel-efficient aircraft engines is set to augur well for power by the hour market size expansion. Leading companies are increasingly focusing on offering long-term engine maintenance contracts to airlines. For instance, JetSMART inked a 12-year contract with Pratt and Whitney meant for the proper maintenance of GTF engines for the 85-firm order of AirbusA320neo aircraft family. The company is set to offer services under the EngineWise program that will offer a flexible maintenance option to the airline.

Power by the hour market size is expected to surpass US$ 30 bn by 2025, according to the latest research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

With notable rise in the number of passengers for long-haul routes, government initiatives have witnessed a notable uptick. Further, facets such as development of megacities, burgeoning urbanization and soaring passenger traffic stemming from non-traditional market are anticipated to spur power by the hour market share.

Modification of existing aircraft fleet and robust demand for upgrades by leading airlines have been indispensable in the development of heavy maintenance. The advent of state-of-the-art aircraft engines and marked demand for lightweight components have further contributed to the growth of heavy maintenance.

Escalating demand for next-generation wide body aircraft by North American and European airlines is set to underpin power by the hour market outlook. For instance, AirAsia X bolstered its contract with AFI KLM E&M in June 2019 to propel the new A330neo aircraft.

Rising call for fuel-efficient wide body aircraft is slated to undergird power by the hour market share. In a bid to propel power by the hour market share, prominent companies are vying to offer more tailor-made and flexible maintenance program to aircraft operators.

The emergence of MRO services and IoT sensors has streamlined aircraft maintenance given the sensors keep an eye on aircraft systems and offer invaluable data. Further, AI has helped aircraft maintenance prophesize the system or component failure in advance and propel the operational efficiency of an aircraft, negating the chance for unscheduled maintenance.

Meanwhile, high manufacturing cost and dearth of trained MRO maintenance professional may mar the growth of power by the hour market. With soaring demand for on-time performance, airlines are heavily focusing to offer on-time services. Moreover, shortage of trained aircraft technicians is expected to derail the growth of power by the hour market. As such, leading companies are increasingly investing in on-time services and low-cost carriers (LCC) are inclined toward outsourcing MRO activities.

Prominent companies are focusing on novel technology, including wearables, MRO services and big data analytics to gain competitive advantage.  Some of the leading companies eyeing to expand power by the hour market size are AAR, Collins Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, Lufthansa Technik, among others.

Titanium sponge for aerospace & defense market to accumulate heavy returns over 2018-2024, innovative recycling initiatives and indigenous production of the metal to characterize industry landscape

Posted on Updated on

Titanium sponge for aerospace & defense market share has been witnessing a sharp uptick in the recent years owing to an increased emphasis on enhancing the fuel efficiency and lower the weight of military and commercial aircrafts. At the same time, it has been observed that numerous companies have been focusing on building technologically advanced facilities to manufacture environment friendly titanium sponge which has consequentially benefited the overall business space. Citing an instance that affirms this declaration, a group of private firms operating in titanium sponge for aerospace & defense industry have recently unveiled the first production facility in Europe that recycles aeronautical-grade titanium.

Elaborating further, the facility, named as EcoTitanium, would utilize four times less energy than the traditional supply chain and would ensure titanium-ingot production to be highly eco-friendly. Here, it would be prudent to mention that this instance complements the efforts being undertaken by various European nations to indigenously manufacture a substantial amount of titanium sponge as to reduce the net imports of this metal and lower the dependence on Russian and American suppliers. Furthermore, the facility is slated to ramp up it’s manufacturing of titanium ingots to several thousand tons per annum in the times to come – a factor that would propel the growth prospects of titanium sponge for aerospace and defense market across Europe.

Apart from the emergence of eco-friendly titanium sponge, a new trend that is being observed across titanium sponge for aerospace & defense market is that of the manufacturing of titanium sponges by prominent space research institutions of a few nations for strategic purposes. For instance, in a bid to fulfill the ever-increasing titanium requirement for its space programs, the Indian Space and Research Organization’s (ISRO) Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, in 2015, completed the construction of a full-fledged titanium sponge manufacturing plant at Chavara in the state of Kerala.

Reportedly, the latest facility is slated to manufacture around 500 metric tons of titanium sponge per annum. Reportedly, the foremost space agency requires a total of 200-300 metric tons of titanium sponge on an annual basis to seamlessly conduct its ambitious space programs. Interestingly, the latest plant is being termed as a significant achievement of the ISRO as it is the only integrated facility across the overall titanium sponge for aerospace & defense industry that carries out all activities right from mining of titanium to production of aerospace-grade titanium sponge at the same location.

The above instance further reinforces the prominence of titanium alloys that possess unique characteristics like excellent corrosion resistance and high strength to weight ratio. Apparently, these properties have made titanium alloys highly useful in liquid propellant tanks, interface rings for satellites, inter tank structures, and gas bottle/liners. Needless to mention, the aforementioned statements go on to explain the rising interest of space agencies across the globe to have in house titanium sponge manufacturing facilities that would quicken the pace of their space programs.

Concurrently, the escalating demand for high tensile strength and light weight metals that are being increasingly deployed in armor plating & missiles, helicopters, fire walls, landing gear, and naval ships would further accelerate the titanium sponge for aerospace & defense market share expansion. Moreover, the rising utilization of components made from these material alloys in engine mounts, turbines, seat rails, floor beam, fuselage frame, and doorframes would undoubtedly augment the commercialization potential of titanium sponge for aerospace & defense industry in the forthcoming years. In fact, according to a research report collated by Global Market Insights, Inc., the overall remuneration portfolio of this business sphere is estimated to surpass USD 1.9 billion by 2024.
