Engine maintenance and repair

The main industry service is engine maintenance and repair, which is expected to account for 40% of revenue in 2016-17. The two major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Rolls-Royce and GE Aircraft Engine Services, dominate this segment. These companies have a key advantage in engine maintenance, repair and overhaul because they produce parts and licences so they can restrict supplies of them. This also means that they can perform services cheaply because they do not have to buy parts from another company. Reputation and service quality are also important factors. This segment's share of industry revenue is expected to have remained relatively stable during the past five years.
