Heavy Maintenance

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.
