March 30, 2022 | Aerospace & Defense

The global aircraft line maintenance market size is estimated to grow from USD 19.30 billion in 2022 to USD 28.73 billion by 2029. The emergence of advanced technologies will augur well for the business outlook. Leading companies are likely to streamline passenger air traffic service. According to the latest research report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, “Aircraft Line Maintenance Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Transit Checks, and Routine Checks), By Aircraft Type (Commercial, Military), By Platform (Traditional Line Maintenance, Digital Line Maintenance), By Service (Engine and APU Service, Component Replacement and Rigging Services, Aircraft On Ground Service, and Others) and Regional Forecasts, 2022-2029,” the market stood at USD 18.34 billion in 2021. It is anticipated to depict a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period.      

Reduction of Air Passengers amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic to Challenge Stakeholders

Leading companies are likely to grapple with the prevailing challenges of the pandemic that has had a telling impact on the aviation industry. A notable reduction of air passengers did not bode well for the business outlook. Meanwhile, airline companies upped focus on transporting medical equipment. Estimates suggest around 46,400 special cargo flights transported 1.5 million tons of cargo, mostly medical equipment, to streamline the supply chain.
