Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
“The Global Military Aviation MRO Market 2012-2022” offers the reader detailed analysis of the global
military aviation MRO market over the next ten years, alongside potential market opportunities to enter the
industry, using detailed market size forecasts.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The global economic slowdown has reduced the defense budgets of most leading spenders in the world,
including the US, France, Germany, and the UK. These countries have cut back their spending on various
defense sectors such as space, aircraft, and military vehicles. However, these budget cuts have propelled
the military aviation MRO industry as countries now prefer to maintain, repair and upgrade their existing
fleet instead of buying new equipment. High growth markets such as India and China have been
formulating continuous programs to enhance their military aviation MRO sector, with the US too focusing on
maintaining their existing fleet. This trend is also evident from the fact that even a small market like Africa is
expected to show positive growth during the forecast period.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
The last decade has witnessed wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia and Libya which were primarily carried out
by aerial attacks. Countries have been relying primarily on air power because it enables them to respond
quickly to distant threats while putting relatively few lives at risk. However, this constant use has resulted in
rapid aging and wearing out of the military aircraft fleet of the US and coalition allies, who are now spending
considerably on their maintenance, repair and upgrading. The US, which is the highest spender on military
MRO globally, is currently facing a combined problem of the rising age of many of its combat aircraft and
delays to the F-35A fighter aircraft fleet. In spite of budget cuts and with a view of mitigating these
problems, the government has decided to increase its spending on military aircraft MRO. Moreover, global
spending is also expected to increase as the worldwide military fleet will only get older and the cost of
replacing them is far greater than the cost of their MRO.
