WireMasters was among more than 7,000 attendees at this year’s sold-out show. More than 96 countries were represented in the Amsterdam event with lots of conversation about the future of the MRO European market. Aviation Week Network released their 2017 forecast for Fleet and MRO which offers a detailed look into different sectors - Commercial Aviation, Military, Business Aviation, and Helicopters. The information helps industry professionals focus on rising trends and opportunities. The reports show the Global MRO commercial market growing 3.9% a year for the next 10 years, eventually reaching $104 Billion in 2026 accommodating a fleet growth of 33,200 in 2017 to a whopping 46,200 by the end of 2026. Engine maintenance is set to reach $37 billion by 2026, representing 35% of the total demand. Other statics show business fleets (?) growing to 36,700 aircraft by 2016 (1.6% growth), military aircraft generating $800 billion in MRO demand, and Helicopters generating $76 billion in MRO demand, 40% of which is attributable to Component MRO. During the show, modifications were announced to be the fastest growing MRO segment for Europe, at least for the next 10 years. In Europe alone, the segment is estimated to rise from $17bn to $25bn by 2025. Speaking at Aviation Week’s MRO Europe, Jonathan Berger, ICF’s vice president, said modification work in Europe will increase by 1%, accounting for 8% of Europe’s MRO market, until 2025. MRO spending on engines is set to experience the largest absolute growth, retaining its 39% share of the segment. The growth predictions also see a 2.3% growth rate for Europe, which has seen its MRO segment’s growth stagnate in recent years compared to other regions, such as Asia-Pacific and North America. Heralding what he deemed “a new golden age of aircraft cabin interiors,” Berger detailed how modifications demand is being driven by airlines “seeking differentiation in the cabin and customer experience,” leading them to alter the seating configuration of their fleet, adding premium economy options and equipping a growing number of jets with Wi-Fi. Berger’s comments further a strong point that WireMasters and the wire and cable industry continues to explore which is the ever evolving world of In-flight Entertainment (IFE) and the complex data cables behind optimizing these electronic systems.
