Global Digital MRO Market is projected to be valued at USD 4,700 Million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 14.60% from 2019 to 2030.
The rising demand for new aircraft, driven by growth in air passenger traffic, has significantly contributed to the expansion of the digital MRO market. High competition in the market owing to the presence of several players is forcing service providers to focus on offering enhanced and customized services. Furthermore, increasing collaborations between the various industry players are expected to drive the growth of the market.
