Greater International Acceptance of FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval to Drive Growth in the Globe PMA Components Marketplace, According to New Report by Worldwide Sector Analysts, Inc
San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn As a combined design and production approval for components and components in the aircraft aftermarket, the number of applications for getting PMA from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is steadily on the rise. Given the lucrative opportunities in the aircraft aftermarket and the developing competitiveness and emphasis on quality, elements manufacturers are increasingly searching for the coveted airworthiness certification from FAA for security and quality assurance. Expanding awareness more than the reliability, high quality, durability and price benefits supplied by PMA components is top to elevated acceptance of PMA components worldwide, which in turn in generating possibilities for the international community to create high good quality, protected PMA components. Against this backdrop, there continues to be a steady increase in the number of FAA-approved Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) firms in Asia. Also, increased outsourcing of MRO operations to Asia Pacific, as a outcome of rising financial and competitive pressures in created nations and low cost labor in Asian nations, is helping drive the dynamics of the PMA components marketplace in the region.
Growth in the PMA approved parts marketplace, in the upcoming years, will be driven by rising typical life of aircrafts and the ensuing opportunities in the aftermarket produced by maintenance requirements. PMA engine parts in the MRO sector are poised to record the maximum gains, given that engine upkeep is evolving into a major company worldwide with spending on engine maintenance accounting for over 40% of total annual MRO spends. The improve in the quantity of operational aircrafts and in the average flying hours per aircraft and the ensuing rise in engine utilization will continue to produce opportunities for aircraft engine MRO with engine overhaul activities trickling down as prospective sales opportunities for PMA components. Demand for PMA parts will also improve in sync with the expanding concentrate of airline firms on price efficiencies. PMA components, in this regard, are more affordable than OEM products as PMA provides much better economies of scale than original manufacturing. PMA brings about substantial savings in material costs, and these savings lower the rates of PMA merchandise for customers and improve the profit margins for airline operators. The future will continue to witness an explosion in the quantity and types of PMA parts accessible to the consumer. With the sophistication in new generation aircraft models, comes complexly developed components, which call for PMA parts to be equally scalable and reliable. Innovation in new technologies in manufacture of PMA parts will aid benefit the PMA market, as managing and understanding sophisticated mechatronic systems becomes simpler.
Given that aftermarket sales in the aerospace industry are closely tied to air traffic trends, aftermarket suppliers in the commercial aerospace sector in Europe currently stay nervous over the play out of the sovereign debt crisis drama. Given the however mixed signals emanating from the handling of the regions debt crisis, sentiments in the PMA parts industry continues to swing between hope and concerns. At the pessimistic finish of the spectrum, bearish market outlook indicate that in the occasion of an escalation in the severity of the crisis, the ensuing declines in air site visitors and capacity surpluses will likely outcome in stringent management of inventories such as inventory destocking, and delays in implementation of maintenance, repair, and overhaul programs. This thereby would negatively influence the PMA components market. There also exist fears over austerity measures most likely to be initiated to counter the crisis, given that austerity measures such as increased taxes, freeze on salaries in the public sector and lesser access to credit, will influence leisure travel. Weakening of trade in Europe could also most likely result in lower load elements as exporters and importers shift to other less expensive modes of cargo transport. Limited visibility surrounding the sovereign debt woes, and the prolonged confusion more than the appropriate measure to include the harm, is expected to heighten the danger of possible reduction in both airline passenger and cargo capacity growth. This in turn will increase the number of parked aircrafts therefore yielding a detrimental impact on the PMA components market place.
Whilst no effortless and immediate solutions exist for Europes macroeconomic imbalances, Europe remains a wildcard with the economic well being of the region forecast to be the sum of the solutions adopted to resolve the crisis. Although the potential outcomes of the crisis remain many, baseline marketplace sentiments presently accumulate at the optimistic end of the spectrum. Present financial information that leaves room for hope incorporate Germanys relative resilience in handling the euro zone crisis, which is helping strengthen confidence levels. Heartening financial data such as comparatively lower levels of unemployment, much better trade surplus accounts, and stable industrial output and manufacturing indices, indicate that the genuine German economy has not but been impacted by the crisis as feared. Also forced austerity measures implemented in Greece to reduce the countrys widening deficits, are much less likely to be adopted in comparatively stronger economies with lower debt loads like in Germany, Spain and Italy. This is mainly because of the expanding acceptance of the counterproductive implications of such a strategy on GDP growth in an economic climate. In addition, year 2011 ended on an encouraging note with tourism performance, as indicated by the level of airline bookings and hotel occupancy rates, posting encouraging growth. Airline capacity in Europe as a result elevated in 2011 as was mirrored by the enhance in offered seat kilometers. Interestingly, political conflicts and unrest in Middle East and Northern Africa is re-channeling tourist site visitors to Southern Europe. Also, the depreciation of the Euro amidst the pressures exerted by the eurozone debt drama is expected to positively benefit tourism in Europe with the number of middle class Asian tourists to the region poised to increase. Paradoxically, the weak financial climate will place PMA items in the limelight, given its inherent cost effectiveness. The PMA components market place in Europe is therefore expected to hold up in the year 2012 in spite of the debt crisis.
