Drivers and Restraints

Bullish Uptake of Outsourcing and Air Traffic to Accentuate Industry Growth

Industry players are likely to explore opportunities with the growing prominence of outsourcing across emerging and advanced economies. Amidst escalating labor- and maintenance costs, outsourcing is likely to gain traction. Furthermore, the need for low-cost carriers and product portfolio expansion could foster aircraft line maintenance market share. Budget airlines have become trendier globally, with China receiving major impetus. The IATA asserts that China is on course to outperform the U.S. as the largest passenger traffic globally by 2024.

However, potential delays and cancellations of aircraft deliveries did not bode well for the industry outlook. For instance, in April 2020, Airbus SE reportedly received 16 cancellations for the A220 series. Prevailing challenges witnessed in the aviation industry will continue to redefine the strategies in the ensuing period.
