Aircraft Parts Distributors
Operators in the Aircraft Parts Distributors industry primarily distribute aircraft parts and equipment, ranging from engine components to fasteners. Some operators also distribute complete aircraft, mostly general aviation planes and helicopters, and offer value-added services such as supply chain management and warehousing. Over the five years to 2019, the industry has performed well as demand for commercial aviation services and military spending have both exhibited growth during the corresponding five-year period. The industry's diverse range of value-added services has served to insulate the industry from downturns in downstream markets. Typical value-added services provided by industry operators include quality assurance, kitting, supply chain management and chemical management services. Over the five years to 2024, continued economic growth is projected to drive air travel traffic higher, resulting in heavier aircraft use and larger fleets. As a result, demand for aircraft parts and distribution will climb. Similarly, distributors will be able to export more parts as international air travel increases.
Operators in this industry sell a range of original equipment manufacturer (OEM), non-OEM and aerostructure components (including fuselage, wings and flight control surfaces) used in the maintenance and repair of aircraft to commercial, freight and defense customers. Distributors offer all aircraft parts and typically also sell finished aircraft or offer aircraft repair and maintenance services.
