The Aircraft Manufacturing and Repair Services industry has faced turbulence over the past five years, largely due to circumstances outside the industry's control. Disturbances included strikes in overseas manufacturing facilities and extended delays of new aircraft delivery. Exports are primarily sent to the United States (for Boeing planes) and France (for Airbus planes). Australian parts are key components of the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. During 2015-16, industry revenue is anticipated to increase by 1.7%, as domestic demand from the commercial sector recovers and the launch of new commercial aircraft help lift the industry.
The industry includes businesses that manufacture aircraft and aircraft engines and frames used for civilian and military purposes. Industry services also include guided missile manufacturing, aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
