The U.S. gas turbine MRO market size was worth USD 4.12 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.42% during the forecast period.

Gas turbine MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) refers to a comprehensive set of activities and processes that are involved in the maintenance, repair, and overhaul of gas turbine engines. Gas turbines are commonly used in aviation, power generation, and various other industrial applications. Gas turbine MRO ensures their continued efficient and safe operation by performing regular inspections, maintenance tasks, repairs, and, if necessary, overhauls to extend their operational life and maintain their performance and reliability. This process is critical as it improves operational performance and ensures the long-term and stable operation of the facility.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the gas turbine MRO market. The supply chain was affected due to several factors, such as lockdowns, border closures, and disruptions in global trade. The disruptions in the import & export, manufacturing activities, demand-supply, and border closures disrupted global trade and logistics, leading to a shortage of raw materials and components required to manufacture gas turbines. This delayed delivery of gas turbines.

U.S. Gas Turbine MRO Market Trends

Rising Demand for Energy to Propel Market Growth

As the U.S. population grows and its economy expands, there is a consistent and often increasing demand for energy. This demand is driven by factors, such as urbanization, industrialization, and others. Gas turbines play a significant role in meeting this energy demand, particularly in electricity generation and various industrial processes. To meet the growing energy needs, gas turbine power plants often operate for longer periods and at higher capacities. This extended usage can lead to more wear and tear of the turbines, necessitating more frequent maintenance and repairs. Many existing gas turbine power plants are being upgraded to increase their efficiency and capacity, aligning with the need for more power. These upgrades often involve overhauls and modernization efforts, thereby boosting the demand for gas turbine MRO services. Energy providers must ensure that their gas turbine power plants remain reliable and available to meet peak energy demands. Regular maintenance and appropriate repairs are important to prevent unexpected downtime and ensure continuous power generation.

For instance, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), almost 33.34% of primary energy consumption is from natural gas.  So, the dependence on natural gas is significant, which means that the gas turbine is important in the U.S. energy market.

U.S. Gas Turbine MRO Market Growth Factors

Aging Fleet of Gas Turbines to Drive Market Growth

Aging gas-fired power plants are accelerating the demand for gas turbine MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) services. As gas turbines in various industries continue to age, they require more frequent and comprehensive maintenance & repair work to ensure their continued safe and efficient operation. This aging infrastructure will boost the demand for MRO services, making it a pivotal factor in the market's expansion.

Gas turbines, whether used in power generation, aviation, or industrial applications, are expensive assets with long operational lifespans. However, as they age, they become more susceptible to wear & tear and performance degradation, which can lead to reduced efficiency and reliability. To address these issues and maximize the return on investment, operators invest in gas turbine MRO services to extend the turbines' operational life and maintain their performance at optimum levels. The aging infrastructure of gas turbine engines acts as a strong catalyst for the U.S. gas turbine MRO market growth by increasing the need for ongoing maintenance, repair, and overhaul activities to keep these vital assets operational and efficient.

For instance, according to the EIA’s Preliminary Monthly Electric Generator Inventory, in 2023, operators plan to retire 15.6 gigawatts of electricity-generating capacity in the U.S., mostly coal-fired (8.9 GW) and natural gas-fired (6.2 GW) power plants. The 6.2 GW of natural gas-fired capacity in the U.S. is planned to be retired, representing 1.3% of the total natural gas fleet still in operation as of January. Many retiring natural gas capacities are made up of older combustion and steam & turbine units, which produce electricity less effectively than many of the newer combined-cycle natural gas units.

Three aging natural gas-fired plants in California, with a combined 2.2 GW of capacity, are planned to be retired by the end of 2023. These plants were expected to retire in 2020. However, they were granted a 3-year extension to maintain grid dependability.                                                                          


High Capital Investment to Hamper U.S. Gas Turbine MRO Market Progress

Gas turbine maintenance and repair require specialized tools, machinery, and diagnostic equipment. This equipment must be of high quality and capable of handling the precision work involved in servicing gas turbines. Examples include rotor balancing machines, borescopes for internal inspections, and high-precision measuring instruments. Trained and experienced technicians, engineers, and support staff are essential for conducting MRO tasks effectively and safely. Investing in the recruitment, training, and retention of skilled personnel adds to the operational costs. Gas turbine MRO often incorporates advanced technologies, such as digital monitoring systems, condition-based maintenance software, and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques. These technologies require substantial investment in both hardware and software.

U.S. Gas Turbine MRO Market Segmentation Analysis

By Technology Analysis

Based on technology, the market is segmented into heavy-duty, light industrial, and aero-derivative.

Heavy-duty gas turbines are the fastest growing segment owing to the capability of burning a variety of liquid fuels, ranging from light petroleum distillates to heavy residuals.

The aeroderivative segment held a larger market share in 2022 as the increasing accessibility of mobile and flexible technologies can boost the adoption of the aeroderivative technology.

  • In April 2023, GE announced the latest emission reduction capabilities for LM2500XPRESS aero-derivative gas turbines. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Catalytic Oxidation Reduction (COR) are two methods used for the GE LM2500XPRESS Aeroderivative Gas Turbines.

By End-user Analysis

Based on end-user, the market is segmented into power utilities, oil & gas, manufacturing, aviation, and others.

The power utility segment held a larger U.S. gas turbine MRO market share in 2022 due to high demand for electricity generation. Power utilities require a consistent and reliable source of electricity to meet the residential, commercial, and industrial demands. The oil & gas is one of the fastest growing segments driven by the increasing use of petrochemicals.

As per the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the primary energy consumption is done by energy sources, such as natural gas, which means that there is a significant demand for gas turbines in the U.S. This will consequently drive the demand for gas turbine MRO services in the country.
