Global Aerospace Market Outlook for Manufacturers

  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, July 26, 2022 - 

As the aerospace industry continues to recover from the pandemic, companies will look toward leveraging digital solutions, increasing production, and expanding MRO activity. 

Trends in commercial air travel have shown a positive increase, working to reach pre-COVID levels. Aircraft manufacturers are focused on small and medium-sized aircraft bodies in order to be in strong positions to benefit from this demand. As such, their suppliers can expect an uptick in parts required for these planes. With air travel demand continuing to grow, the aftermarket could show a solid recovery by the end of 2022.

With air travel moving in a positive trend, this will also drive an increase in aftermarket activity. With higher utilization of aircraft a need for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) usually directly corresponds. MRO companies should look to optimize their production line and supply chain strategies in order to open new opportunities to expand their business. 

Digital is Driving Growth

An increased shift towards digital in order to improve operational efficiencies will continue to be embraced. In doing so, the industry as a whole will gain critical component supply visibility and be able to increase production efficiency. By gaining access to insights and machine actions companies will be able to increase time to market, lower service costs, and be better positioned to meet customer demands.  It is crucial for an aerospace business to remain agile during this growth period. 

Innovative smart factory technologies will be seen as a main driver of revenue moving into the latter part of 2022 and into 2023. By providing proactive remote monitoring and predictive capabilities, OEMs, airlines, and MRO companies can set themselves apart from the competition. Smart factory capabilities will allow companies to utilize performance data to improve customer engagement, field service efficiency, and open up new growth opportunities.
