In the near term, the industry will be picking up the pieces from the aftermath of the recession. Falling capacity among major airlines and a decline in the total number of active aircraft have resulted in less demand for aircraft services. However, because industry services include prescheduled maintenance and repairs needed to uphold government regulations, declines have been kept low. In the coming years, airlines will expand their fleets and ultimately require greater industry services.
Companies in this industry provide support services to air transportation operators, such as aircraft inspection and testing; ferrying aircraft between departure gates and taxiways; aircraft maintenance and repair; and aircraft and parts overhaul. The main industry services are commonly referred to as maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). This industry only includes specialized MRO operations and excludes work conducted in factories.
