Global Aircraft Dismantling Market Analysis & Forecasts 2018-2022, With an Expected CAGR of 6.6% -


The "Global
Aircraft Dismantling Market 2018-2022"
report has been added to's

The analysts forecast the global aircraft dismantling market to grow at
a CAGR of 6.60% during the period 2018-2022.

The economic life of an aircraft is not unlimited like its technological
life, as there are spare parts available on aircraft that can be kept
airworthy. Maintenance costs increase as an aircraft ages. As a result,
when an aircraft has reached the end of its economic life, it is
generally withdrawn from service and replaced with a new aircraft that
has higher passenger comfort and lower fuel utilization and maintenance

One trend in the market is greener dismantling practices. The
international community is striving for greener practices to dismantle
aircraft. In 2011, Bombardier, alongside the Canadian University
Polytechnique Montral and the Centre Technologique en arospatiale,
embarked on a $1.4 million R&D project to find new ways to recycle and
recover metals.

One driver in the market is retirement of aircraft and increasing fleet
size with new-generation aircraft. The average age of aircraft in
service has been relatively stable in the last 15 years. As per
statistics provided by International Air Transport Association (IATA),
the retirement of fleets between 2010-2015 was around 4,700 units which
was growing at CAGR more than 4%.

The report states that one challenge in the market is uncertainty of
aircraft retirement. There is no set industry rule or standard, but many
commercial aircraft reach end of life at about 25 years of age. Aircraft
age is arguably measured not only in years but also in terms of
pressurization cycles, which cause stress on the fuselage and wings.
