Global Helicopter MRO Services Market: By MRO Service Operators: Flight Inspection, Power By Hour, Overhaul, Repairs, Others; By Helicopter Type: Lightweight, Mediumweight, Others; By Application; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2017-2027); Market Dynamics; Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Helicopter MRO Services Market Outlook

The global helicopter MRO services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% during the period 2022-2027. The market is likely to be driven by expanding civil and military aircraft and helicopter fleets across the globe. Further, companies are introducing MRO services as part of their diversification strategies, and to focus and complement work in energy, search and rescue, air medical and marine pilot transfers services. North America, Europe and Asia are expected to be key markets.

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Need for Specialist Level MRO Capabilities with Advancements in Technology

MRO refers to Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul; the term is used to denote a range of maintenance activities carried out to keep an aircraft in a safe, serviceable and airworthy condition. Aircraft MRO is an essential part of the aircraft lifecycle. MRO entails scheduled maintenance to keep the aircraft consistently airworthy, as well as unscheduled or unplanned maintenance led by damage, component and engine failures, compulsory modifications, and upgrades to the cabin interior, systems and other components.

Airbus, a leading player in the aerospace industry, operates in the commercial aircraft, helicopters, defence and space sectors. The company also offers maintenance services for helicopters. Airbus Helicopters is represented through nearly 30 customer centres and approximately 96 MRO service centres. The company’s global network ensures efficient aircraft maintenance and upgrade work, with limited rotorcraft downtime. Airbus Helicopters offers a range of service levels for line maintenance, intermediate and heavy maintenance activities. Services include upgrades (standard and customised upgrades), upgrades and retrofit, turnkey solutions, and military support centres (MSC) for French and German armed forces.

Digital technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, AR/VR, digital twins, and 3D printing to carry out maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations are referred to as digital MRO. Such technologies enhance operational efficiency and decrease turnaround time. Indeed, technological advancements are changing the MRO industry and driving the development of novel solutions.

 

Expanding Helicopter Fleets Expected to Boost Global Helicopter MRO Services Market

In 2021, The Helicopter Company (THC) announced that it has signed a second purchase agreement with Airbus Helicopters. The partnership would contribute to the continuing expansion of THC’s regional fleet, with twenty orders of the five bladed H145 and six ACH160 models. All aircraft featured modern technologies and biofuel-compatible engines, marking a major milestone in developing alternatives to conventional aviation fuels and accomplishing decarbonization of helicopter flights.

In 2022, The Indian Armed Forces received a big boost when the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) permitted the procurement of 15 indigenously developed Light Combat Helicopters (LCH).

Such efforts towards expansion of civil and military helicopter fleets are expected to boost market growth.

 

USA and UK are Major Markets; India Holds Significant Potential

While USA and UK are major helicopter MRO services markets, India is a major civil aviation market, and represents significant scope for expansion of MRO facilities. The nation’s indigenous MRO sector is yet emerging, but holds significant growth potential. The growing aviation industry is expected to boost the sector's growth in the country. India is also likely to become a major market for military MRO capabilities, as the country is constantly taking large strides in the defence aircraft segment. The Government of India has made clear its intention to develop India as an international MRO hub. Policy initiatives by central and state governments have positioned India well to develop high-quality infrastructure facilities, enhanced precision manufacturing capability, spare-parts supply chain, and create employment opportunities for skilled people. Initiatives include new MRO policies, liberalised land rentals, modifications in land allotment policy, and tax concessions. Further, India’s MRO workforce costs may be significantly lower than those prevailing in Western Europe or USA. The capabilities in India are steadily growing with leading companies like Boeing, Airbus, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Pratt & Whitney, and Safran erecting repair facilities. Such developments are likely to stimulate the global helicopter MRO services market.

Indian companies like Indocopters (a DGCA approved CAR 145 and CAR M Maintenance Organization) offer MRO services including continuing airworthiness management services under CAR M approvals; round-the-clock support for procurement and supply of spares and consumables, including procurement of components under standard exchange or on rental basis; maintenance of Airbus, Leonardo and Bell Textron helicopters under CAR 145 approvals; pre-buy and pre-sale inspection and technical evaluation services; swift facilitation for enrolment under OEM sponsored SBH or PBH programs for enhanced coverage of engine and airframe; initial issue and annual review of Certificate of Airworthiness; assembly and dismantling of helicopters to meet airworthiness requirements of the State of Import or Export; line and base maintenance including out-of-phase inspections; retrofitting after-market and OEM equipment and carrying out upgrades or modifications under STC approvals; carrying out upgrades or modifications as mandated by ASBs, SBs and ADs, as and when they are issued by OEMs and/or the aviation regulators – DGCA, FAA, EASA; aircraft restoration and extension of life; sheet-metal and composite repairs of airframe; custom painting and livery; aircraft completion, cabin enrichment and refurbishment; maintenance and overhaul of SafranHE’s Arriel series engines - Level 1 & Level 2.
