How has COVID-19 had a Significant Impact on the Aircraft Engine Market?
The global aircraft engine industry has been significantly and widely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to travel restrictions, lockdown procedures, and decreased passenger demand, the aviation sector has been among the most severely impacted. The demand for aeroplane engines and the overall engine market have consequently been impacted by these effects.

A significant drop in air travel has been one of the pandemic's main effects. To stop the virus from spreading, governments imposed quarantine and travel restrictions, which drastically cut the number of passenger flights. Airlines were forced to put a sizable portion of their fleets on the ground, which decreased demand for brand-new planes and, by extension, plane engines. The financial performance of engine manufacturers was impacted by airlines delaying or cancelling engine orders.

The aftermarket area of the aircraft engine market was also impacted by the decline in demand for air travel. There was less demand for engine maintenance, repairs, and spare parts as a result of fewer flights and lower aircraft utilisation. The income of suppliers and companies that provide engine maintenance was directly impacted by this.

In addition, the pandemic's financial strain on airlines prompted cost-cutting initiatives and restructuring efforts. Airlines experienced significant revenue losses, which prompted layoffs, fleet retirements, and a postponement of capital investments. This had an effect on the business of engine manufacturers as investments in new engines and engine upgrades were delayed.

The aircraft engine industry's supply chain was also impacted by the pandemic. The supply chain was hampered by manufacturing and transportation restrictions, which delayed and disrupted the production and delivery of engines and engine components. In order to maintain production levels, engine manufacturers had to overcome logistical difficulties and modify their business practises.

The aviation industry's emphasis on health and safety regulations also had an impact on aircraft engines. In order to reduce the risk of gearbox, improved cleaning and sanitization protocols resulted in new requirements and considerations for engine handling and maintenance. For engine service providers, these measures increased costs and complexity.

The COVID-19 pandemic presented opportunities for innovation and adaptation in the aircraft engine industry despite the significant challenges. In order to improve safety, efficiency, and sustainability, engine manufacturers and suppliers concentrated on creating and implementing new technologies and solutions. The creation of more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient engines has received more attention as the industry works to recover and align itself with sustainability objectives.

What are the Current Market Drivers?

Rising Demand for Fuel-efficient Aircraft Engines
The engine's fuel efficacy has a direct effect on fuel consumption and airline operating expenses. According to the International Air Transport Association's fuel fact document, the global airline industry's fuel expenditure in 2021 was estimated to be US$100 billion, or approximately 19.0 percent of operating expenses. In 2022, the fuel cost is projected to be US$132 billion, representing 19.5% of operating expenses at a price of approximately US$67.0 per barrel Brent.

Major engine manufacturers are implementing fuel-saving measures. Pratt & Whitney claims that its new engines will use an internal mechanism to reduce the speed of the fan, which could reduce fuel consumption by 20 percent. CFM International has successfully transitioned from the LEAP to RISE engine programme. There are ongoing efforts to incorporate biofuels into aircraft motors. Airbus/Rolls-Royce hybrid electric aircraft with a gas-turbine engine will provide maximum power for take-off and climb, while the engine is turned down and the electric fans recuperate during descent. NASA is developing cutting-edge technologies to reduce aircraft engine carbon dioxide emissions by more than half.

Growing Efforts from Government and Defence Contractors to Build Indigenous Engines to Drive Industry Growth
While there are several obstacles to developing domestic aircraft engines, including high development costs, technical complexity, and time-consuming research, some nations have started such programmes. By developing their own engines, for instance, nations like China, India, and Russia have made significant strides towards lessening their reliance on imported engines and reaching technical self-sufficiency. For instance, the Ministry of Defence (India) is working on indigenous manufacturing of aero-engines to achieve complete self-reliance. Furthermore, as of June 2023; the Biden administration is set to approve a deal that would permit General Electric Co to manufacture jet engines for Indian military aircraft within India which is anticipated to fuel demand of aircraft engine growth over the forecast period.

Where are the Market Opportunities?

Innovation in Technology and Approaches to Redefine Mobility
