Engine PMA parts market hits headwinds

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 18 June, 2009  (Company News)
A global engine MRO survey by AeroStrategy concludes that the growth rate of PMA parts for aeroengines is expected to slow as a result of the industry downturn and defensive measures by the OEMs during recent years.
GE has been particularly active in its defense of the material flow on the GE and CFM engines. By allying with engine MRO providers such as Aveos, ST Aero and Iberia in return for long-term material agreements, GE has locked 17 percent of the material flow on GE/CFM engines on top of what it already controls via its own engine shops.

In contrast, Airframe and component PMA markets are expected to continue robust growth, as airlines seek further opportunities to save costs. The component, airframe, and interiors markets are more fragmented, have fewer barriers to entry and OEM defensive measures are generally less robust.

AeroStrategy values the air transport PMA market at $381 million, and 8% decline from the prior year, but expects it to return to growth as aviation emerges from recession and reach $680 million by 2013.

A summary of findings is available on the AeroStrategy website and can be downloaded at AeroStrategy’s website.
